"Great lightweight all terrain buggy…"
I've had a Britax B-smart for 5 months and although it's a great travel system, I wanted something with pneumatic wheels for all-terrain walking. I received the B-motion 3 today and took the munchkin out for our first walk. It's super bouncy and smooth and takes kerbs very easily. Its narrow wheel base makes city street walking a breeze. Munchkin fell asleep even though it's her first time in a forward-facing buggy. Its also very easy to run with. I haven't tried the muddy park yet but I've no doubt the B-motion will take it in its stride.
The brake is great, much nicer and easier than the B-smart braking system. Also much smoother ride than the B-smart. A real pleasure to take for walks and easily steered with one hand while you hold your coffee in the other.
A few niggles:
- the tray is small but then this buggy has a narrow wheel base so it's possibly a necessary compromise and there is a bag compartment at the back.
- the crotch strap is too far from the backrest for young babies and leads to slouching, the B-smart also has this problem. You can however adjust the shoulder strap height which is great for young babies.
-the adaptors for the car seat have to be taken out if you want to use the adaptors for the bar across the main seat. Pretty annoying but I guess you could keep the adaptors you're not using in the bag compartment.
Britax buggies are great, but they won't offer the perfect system for babies under 6 months until the B-motion and the B-smart have a lovechild (a B-everything) with the motion's all-terrain narrow wheel base and the smart's reversible seat.Read moreLess
