What similarities do the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie and Bumbleride Indie Twin Share?
The BOB Revolution Flex Duallie and Bumbleride Indie Twin are both robust, all-terrain, side-by-side double strollers. Each features sturdy, air-filled wheels with all-wheel suspension, spacious canopies providing UPF protection, a convenient one-step fold mechanism, and independent multi-recline positions for each seat. Designed for years of use, both the Revolution Flex Duallie and Indie Twin offer versatility, with options for use from birth and ample space for your little ones to grow.
What double stroller offers the best performance? BOB Revolution Flex Duallie vs. Bumbleride Indie Twin:
While both the Revolution Flex Duallie and Indie Twin are built to tackle rough terrains, there are some distinctions in their performance. The Revolution Flex Duallie, with its 3-wheel design, with front swivel-lock wheel, is ideal for runners, trails, and navigating through sand and snow. It features substantial 16" back wheels and a 12" front wheel. On the other hand, the Indie Twin adopts a 4-wheel design with 12" wheels all around. Following the stroller rule that bigger wheels provide a smoother ride, there might not be a noticeable performance difference over smooth and paved surfaces. However, when it comes to more challenging terrains, the Revolution Flex Duallie takes the lead in the performance category. It's also explicitly designed for running, whereas the Indie Twin is more suitable for light jogs due to its 4-wheel build.
What double stroller can be used from birth? BOB Revolution Flex Duallie vs. Bumbleride Indie Twin:
If prioritizing use from birth, the Indie Twin takes the lead. The Indie Twin features independent recline on each seat, allowing for a fully flat recline. Each seat can also be adjusted to create a faux bassinet environment. Straight out of the box, the Indie Twin is suitable for one newborn or two. Bumbleride provides additional accessories to enhance its from-birth functionality, such as organic cotton infant inserts for added comfort or Indie Twin bassinets. While the stroller is newborn-ready, the bassinets offer a convenient way to transition sleeping babies without disturbance. A lay-flat position is the preferred method for babies to ride, this positioning promotes proper spine development. That being said, Bumbleride does offer infant car seat adapters to allow the Indie Twin to be used as a travel system, adding versatility for parents on the go and yet another option for use from birth.
The Revolution Flex Duallie does offer a near-flat recline on each seat but because they do not recline fully flat, the stroller is not suitable for newborns. The Revolution Flex Duallie seats are suitable for use at 8 weeks. BOB does offer infant car seat adapters allowing parents the ability to utilize the Revolution Flex Duallie as a travel system. Therefore, use with an infant car seat is the only option for use from birth, however - this is not recommended for longer periods of stroller use.
What infant car seats are compatible with the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie and Bumbleride Indie Twin?
The Revolution Flex Duallie and Indie Twin are both infant car seat compatible. The Indie Twin has the ability to accommodate two infant car seats at the same time, making it a great option for twins. The Revolution Flex Duallie can only hold one infant car seat.
