The most amazing thing you've ever seen is coming out this Fall - meet the incredible Bugaboo Ant lightweight stroller! This super compact stroller is by far the most revolutionary travel stroller we've ever seen! According to Bugaboo's designer that we met at the show in April, the Bugaboo Ant is the culmination of years of work, and honestly - it really shows. Bugaboo never disappoints and their latest addition is in line with their high standards that parents everywhere can rely and expect from Bugaboo.
What makes the Bugaboo Ant the best travel stroller?
The Bugaboo Ant boasts some amazing features that are totally unique to the travel market. Let's begin with the seat
The Seat on the Bugaboo Ant
The most significant feature on the entire stroller is the reversible seat. The comfortable seat is suitable from birth up to 50 lbs. The seat is height-adjustable so it will grow with your child. There are 2 recline positions while parent-facing, and 3 positions when facing the world.
The Fold on the Bugaboo Ant isn't just tiny, its the neat design that makes the stroller look so sleek even when folded. The side panels cover up the sides of the stroller when folded and allow you to keep items in the underseat basket even while folding it! You can fold the Ant with the seat in either position (!). The fold does take a few steps, but once you get the hang of it, it takes just a few seconds. The fold measures 21.6 x 14.9 x 9.1 in and is small enough to take along as a carry-on on any aircraft. The package can stand on its own, as the integrated footrest supports it.
The Ant Handlebar
We've never seen such a great travel stroller that features an adjustable handlebar!! Most lightweight strollers are designed to be a suitable height for an average height adult. With the Bugaboo Ant, each parent will be able to choose the handlebar position that suits them best, extending from 37.4 – 40.9 in. When you fold your stroller, the handlebar is used in the pull-along trolley mode in 2 positions.
The Ant Wheels
We've tested out the Bugaboo Ant ourselves and we were shocked about how easy it was to steer and maneuver. The all-wheel suspension lets you glide through every twist and turn along the way. The wheels measure 5" in the front, and 6" in the back.
The Ant features an extendable canopy UPF50+ with a peek-a-boo window (only for premium fabric). It's really big and gives you tons of coverage.
Storage on the Bugaboo Ant
Bugaboo knows what life is like as a parent - there's never enough room for all the stuff you need to take along on the journey. The Ant under seat basket holds up to 6.61lbs and the rear luggage basket up to 11.02lbs
The Bugaboo Ant weighs in at 15.8 lbs. The amazing part of the Ant is that you don't need to ever lift the stroller, as there is an integrated trolley handle that allows you to wheel the entire package behind you!
Infant options for the Bugaboo Ant
The Ant can be used from birth. You can either purchase the Ant car seat adapter to be used together with a tested infant car seat, or with the Bee cocoon which fits onto the seat.
Accessories for the Bugaboo Ant
No accessories are included with the Bugaboo Ant. There are some new dedicated accessories available only for the Ant, including the footmuff, organizer, rain cover, car seat adapter, and transport bag.
Accessories that will fit with the Ant are the Bee cocoon, cup holder, comfort wheeled board, organizer, and both the Compact and Transport bags.
Price of the Bugaboo Ant
The Bugaboo Ant retails for 499-549, depending on the color base and style kit you choose. This is a very good price point for a such a great travel stroller. If you own a full-size stroller and need a stroller that is travel-friendly, we highly recommend the Bugaboo Ant.
