Summer Flite of Fancy

 

 "Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."

-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

 Summer is the time of great beginnings...when everything is fresh and new. The warm sun and gentle breezes summon us to outdoor adventures and travel. And when you gaze at the cool blue and green tones of the "Seagrass" Bumbleride Flite, you may be inspired to take flight, to a place where lush meadows meet sparkling seas.   

 

  OK, sometimes the days will be grey and the grass will be brown. But at least the Flite colors remain true!

 

 And you can use the included rain cover so the fog won't interfere with your fun!

 

The front and rear wheel suspension makes the Flite is a great little choice for zipping around. Has super one-handed steering. 

 

 

 I like how deep the recline is. It's done with a one-handed pull of the back strap.

I don't know why I have read that the Flite has a skimpy canopy. Because check this out:

The Flite is small, but the extended legrest helps provide a comfy seat for viewing the sea:

The fold is done quickly and easily, by pulling the triggers up by the handles.

 

It folds compactly, umbrella style.

 

And has a side carrying handle.

I was a little concerned that the light colored interior would get dirty fast. But it is the type of material that cleans up really easily.

 

   The new Flite is the latest offering from Bumbleride. It comes with a matching headhugger, strap covers, the afore mentioned raincover, and universal adapter bar.

 There are some really fantastic accessories available, too. You can get a matching snack tray for the universal front bar, matching diaper bag and footmuff, and even a carrycot! Wowee! Don't know another umbrella stroller this small (sold in the US, that is), that can take a bassinette. How perfect for your summer flight of fancy!

A practical stroller for the modern mom!
Let's get real mommies! Who really wants to lug a travel system around when there is a much better and lighter (<--- circle that word) option? The new Bumbleride Flite hits the bullseye when it comes to a luxury umbrella stroller. When you think of umbrella stroller what comes to mind? One of those $20 strollers that doesn't turn, has a thin fabric seat, and needs to be replaced every season? Well, this is not it. Thanks to Bumbleride we got to find out just how different the Flite is …
