Charlotte, N.C., May 24, 2010 — Britax — trusted child safety seat and stroller manufacturer — introduces a new compact-fold umbrella stroller, the B-NIMBLE. The stroller weighs less than 13 pounds and includes a canopy, rain cover and cup holder. B-NIMBLE accommodates newborns and children up to 55 pounds and is easy to both maneuver and fold.
The B-NIMBLE is compatible with the Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat using the Britax Click & Go Infant Car Seat Adapters and can also be used with other infant car seat brands. To accommodate infants and children, the stroller is equipped with an easy-to-use five-point harness that offers three heights for a snug fit.
The B-NIMBLE is designed to address parents’ mobility needs. The unique rear wheel auto-lock fold release mechanism allows a caregiver to fold the stroller and immediately rest it against a car or wall, without it rolling back down. The one-foot anti-scuff linked rear break locks the rear wheels with a single step. Parents can throw the B-NIMBLE over a shoulder while keeping both hands free using its portable carry strap, perfect for the airport.
Wheels with improved rolling resistance make the B-NIMBLE easy to maneuver. It’s equipped with a large canopy to protect child from harmful UV rays and a rain cover to protect child from wind and rain. Because a parent brings more than their child on the average outing, the B-NIMBLE offers ample storage, with a Velcro pouch for keys, a wallet or a phone, as well as a cup holder.
“Parents require light weight, durability, convenience and style in a stroller,” said Jon McGuire, Britax product manager. “The B-NIMBLE incorporates all of those qualities while providing safe mobility for newborns and toddlers.”
The B-NIMBLE comes in four fashions that match the fashions of the 2010 Chaperone Infant Car Seats (sold separately) and includes a removable, reversible insert pad for easy cleaning and more fashion options. It also comes with the Britax Click & Go Infant Car Seat Adapters and Receivers that attach to the frame, a liner, a rain cover and a cup holder (the included accessories add over $100 in value). Additional accessories include a mosquito net, second adult cup holder and foot muff/boot cover.
The B-NIMBLE will be available at retailers this fall. The suggested retail price is $199.99.
