Clockwise from the left: Cameleon and Buffalo
This week we welcome two different Bugaboo models to the ring: the Cameleon and the Buffalo. Let’s meet the contenders…
The Cameleon3 is Bugaboo’s iconic stroller: 3 terrain, 3-in-1 design, 3rd generation. And we can see why people love it. Weighing in at 21lbs, the 3-in-1 design easily adapts to car seats (with a variety of adapters for a variety of manufacturers), the reversible bassinette, and the reversible stroller seat. Watch as it takes on the city with it’s smaller swivel wheels to the front; marvel as the handle bar pivots around to hit the trail with the large foam wheels forward to take on rough terrain; and stand in awe as it transitions easily from four to two wheels to take on snow and sand. The seat and bassinet (independent and included) both flip easily to allow your child to face you or the world. The easily accessible hand break allows you to stop on a dime and the handlebar is height adjustable to allow for easy, one-handed steering. The foam wheels in conjunction with adjustable swivel wheel suspension in 4 positions makes the Cameleon live up to it’s namesake easily taking on a variety of environments.
A newcomer to the scene, we’re excited to invite the Buffalo to the ring. It’s optimized for robust use, allowing you to put up to 13lbs of weight on the handlebar without the stroller tipping, 50lbs in the seat, and 22lbs under the seat for a combined weight of up to 80lbs. You can also attach the wheel board at 31lbs and be ready to go. Of course a stroller this robust doesn’t steer with one hand like the Cameleon, but it still swivels smoothly and is ready to take on any terrain. This stroller has a more outdoorsy family in mind. It has the largest seat of the Bugaboo models and it’s four foam wheels are prepared to provide a smooth ride in any environment. It also has an extended canopy for extra protection against wind, sun, and rain. It can fold up in one piece for garage/in-home storage or in two pieces to more easily fit in the car so you can get out and go. The seat reclines to allow the little one to sit up straight when awake, recline when relaxed, or lie flat when fast asleep. We also love the height-adjustable handlebar that offers a greater range of heights than ever before.
