Bugaboo Dragonfly vs. Nuna TRIV Next Stroller Comparison

In the world of strollers, the mid-size category strikes a perfect balance between compactness and functionality. When searching for a stroller that seamlessly blends convenience, style, and versatility, two exceptional options rise to the top: the Bugaboo Dragonfly and the Nuna TRIV Next. These strollers could function as a one-and-done - great for everyday, but also easy for in and out of the car and travel!

The Dragonfly combines Bugaboo's style and functionality into a mid-size stroller that weighs less than 17.5 pounds. The Dragonfly has an impressive and unique one-handed fold - the bassinet can even fold with the stroller into a slim package! 

Redesigned in late 2022, the Nuna TRIV Next weighs less than 19 pounds, but

has all the full-size features everyone wants—like a reversible seat, simple recline, adjustable footrest, as well as a one-handed fold! The included Nuna infant seat adapter even folds with the stroller! 

These mid-size marvels have captivated parents with their impressive features, innovative designs, easy folds, and effortless maneuverability. In this article, we will dive into a comprehensive comparison between these the Dragonfly and the TRIV Next

Bugaboo Dragonfly

The Bugaboo Dragonfly stroller is Bugaboo’s answer to the new mid-size stroller category! Released in spring 2023, it’s a remarkable choice for parents seeking a lightweight and agile stroller without compromising on performance or style. Designed with urban living in mind, the Dragonfly effortlessly combines functionality and elegance.

Weighing just 17.4 pounds, this lightweight stroller is a breeze to maneuver, and quickly and easily folds with one-hand. The Dragonfly also has a slim standing fold with both the seat or bassinet attached!

The Dragonfly looks like a grown up version of the Bugaboo Butterfly, and offers features such as reversible seat, telescoping handlebar, adjustable calf support, large 22 pound capacity under storage basket, and an optional bassinet that folds while attached to the stroller! The fold is innovative and great for parents on the go!

Nuna TRIV Next

The Nuna TRIV Next came out in late 2022 as an upgrade to the popular Nuna TRIV. It’s a perfect mid-size solution for parents who want one stroller that does it all, instead of having both a travel stroller and a full size stroller.

Updates to the seat include an updated magnetic harness buckle and zip-off sun canopy. A modernized stroller frame has larger, foam-filled rubber tires with a wider wheel base and built-in foot rest for tall toddlers. Parents will enjoy updated comfort features like an ergonomic rounded handlebar and a sandal-friendly one-touch brake mechanism.

Bugaboo Dragonfly vs. Bugaboo Fox5 Configurations 

The seats on the Bugaboo Dragonfly and Nuna TRIV Next are removable and reversible, allowing your child to face you when they're younger and face forward to explore the world as they grow. Both strollers can also be used with an infant car seat, and the Dragonfly can be purchased with or without a bassinet (see next sections for more details).

The Bugaboo Dragonfly can also accommodate an older child on a ride-along-board attachment! The Bugaboo Comfort Wheeled Board allows the child to sit or stand, and holds a child up to 44 pounds. The Nuna TRIV Next does not offer a ride along board, but you can use a universal one, like the Lascal BuggyBoard!


Bugaboo Dragonfly vs. Nuna TRIV Next Bassinet

The Bugaboo Dragonfly can be purchased with or without a bassinet, and is a standalone bassinet - however, the seat and bassinet do share the canopy so you would attach the canopy to whatever one you are using. The biggest advantage of the Dragonfly bassinet is that it can fold with the stroller!

The Nuna TRIV Next bassinet is currently in the process of being redesigned and will be coming back to market sometime later this year. The bassinet will come with the bassinet stand for use in your bedroom or home. The bassinet is approved for overnight sleep, and can be used as your baby’s first bed!

Both bassinets have a hard bottom that allow them to be placed anywhere, making them convenient to bring along for a restaurant nap or an overnight at a hotel. Bugaboo also offers a bassinet stand for use in your home. The stand can also be used with the stroller seat as a portable high chair!

Both the Bugaboo Dragonfly and TRIV Next bassinets will be well-ventilated with mesh panels, which allow for more air flow than the hot, protective foam of a car seat, and keep baby completely shaded from the sun.

The bassinets can be used until approximately 6 months, depending mostly on the height of the baby.

Bugaboo Dragonfly vs. Nuna TRIV Next Fold

The Bugaboo Dragonfly has an innovative, compact fold unlike any other stroller! It’s a one-handed fold, and the seat or bassinet folds in one piece with the stroller. Take a look at the Dragonfly fold here:

 Folding Bugaboo Dragonfly with toddler seat

To fold the Nuna TRIV Next with the toddler seat attached, you'll need to fold the seat in half, then fold up the frame. First, lower the handlebar to the lowest position. Then raise the seat recline up to a 90-degree angle by using the lever on the back of the seat. Using that same lever, pull it up and push the button on top of it, and the seat will fold down over itself. Next, simply grab the strap on the back of the seat and pull up! The TRIV Next can stand when folded, but you may need to find its sweet spot on the wheels for that to happen.

It's easy to carry the TRIV Next once it's folded due to the leatherette padded carry strap.

To fold the TRIV Next with the included infant car seat adapter attached, you simply lower the handlebar to the lowest position and then pull up on the strap located in the center of the adapter. That's it! The adapter folds in half! 

To unfold, just grab a hold of the handlebars, lift it up, flip up the seat and you're ready to stroll!
