2017-03-21 - Designed specifically for parents who live life on the go, the Bugaboo Bee 5 presents new upgrades and features that inspire an even greater freedom of movement. Our newest urban stroller is the most comfortable and stylish compact stroller to date.
The Bugaboo Bee 5 showcases a combination of new engineering features and impeccable styling options. Since 2007, the compact, light stroller has been a smart choice for urban adventurers with a newborn or toddler. Its lovable and tried-and-tested features are upgraded, offering even more comfort and options for customization.
Discover the ins and outs of what makes the Bugaboo Bee 5 the ultimate urban stroller:The smoothest ride ever
Thanks to innovative engineering solutions, the Bugaboo Bee 5 is even easier to maneuver and offers a smoother ride than ever before. The front wheel suspension has undergone a series of improvements resulting in a more comfortable and easier ride for both parents and children. Lead engineer Jos Joffers explains that by examining the physics of the suspension system and making technical developments based on their findings, the team was able to improve the performance of the Bugaboo Bee 5 suspension. This new design also reduces the amount of dust which can make its way into the system, meaning a smoother drive over time. The front wheels have also been designed in an entirely new way, not only making the wheels more stable, but also delivering a better swivel performance.All-new padded seat system
Our engineers did not stop there to improve the stroller’s comfort factor. Another new feature of the Bugaboo Bee 5 is the padded seat fabric: we’ve added an extra layer of foam, and the ‘pillowtop’ seat fabric lining offers extra protection around the head and is more comfortable for sleeping. The seat fabric can now be separated from the seat hardware, making it easier than ever to update the look of the stroller. In this way, parents can easily extend the life cycle of the product. Aside from the all-new padded seat design, the engineers also improved the harness of the seat to make the shoulder straps stand out even more on their own. This means it’s easier to buckle your child in and out of the stroller.Over 100 new parts
The Bugaboo Bee 5 boasts over 100 new parts, some not visible from the outside, like the inner suspension system. The stroller redesign includes small adjustments to details that make life for parents even easier. For example, the integrated attachment points for accessories means there’s no need to use adapters to attach things like the Bugaboo Cup Holder, Bugaboo Parasol or the Bugaboo Comfort Wheeled Board. Just click them directly onto the stroller and head out to explore. There’s also a handy pocket in the under-seat basket to easily stow your rain cover or other small items.Show your style
The Bugaboo Bee 5 is not just brains, but beauty as well. With fifteen new colors, parents have even more options to create the stroller that shows their style. Choose any combination of colors for the seat, bassinet and/or sun canopy from the Core Collection of solid colors, the Premium Collection of muted mélange colors or from the newly introduced Signature Collection with (for the first time) prints.Patterns and colors that inspire
Senior product developer Sietske Sinnema developed the new color palette to include prints with butterflies and geometric waves, as well as warm colors like ruby red and olive green. “My inspiration for these new colors and prints came from looking at all the things that are happening on the catwalks, trend books, and of course, our own feeling of what fits Bugaboo.”
New season, new baby, new look
Sietske adds that being able to mix-and-match increases the longevity of the stroller: “When you have a stroller for four years, your personal style or tastes may change.” In addition to the new colors for the sun canopy and seat, the Bugaboo Bee 5 offers extra customization options with changeable wheel caps and several options for leather-look grips. You can easily refresh the look of your stroller, for a new season, a new baby or just for a change!Want to create your own Bugaboo Bee 5? Mix, match, play and discover here.
