Britax B-Agile R

NEW 2020
The more upright, more luxuriously-looking B-Agile line pushchair
.eli
see 3 parent reviews

The Britax B-Agile R, released for 2020, is a premium stroller based on the Britax B-Agile M. Compared to the M line, the R line is more luxurious, featuring the leatherette accents on the handlebar as well as on the bumper bar and the dark melange fabrics. The B-Agile R also offers a seat with a more upright sitting position, which you can also recline fully. The bumper bar is removable and also gate-open. Another thing to boast about would be the renewed wheels made out of rubber. The extra-large hood with a partly-covered ventilation part made out of mesh stays the same in the R line.

The smallest of babies can benefit from the option of a soft insert carrycot or the available Click&Go adapters accommodating either a full-featured carrycot or the Britax Römer 0+ car seats. The stroller itself includes a rain cover, bumper bar, and a cup holder. Its chassis with a 22 kg weight capacity can overall handle up to 28,5 kg (when you take the storage space into account). Its use is mainly urban, but it will handle certain unevenness thanks to the mild suspension and the wider rubber wheels with a unique, more profound thread. The spacious basket with a padded bottom will be appreciated mainly during shopping.

parents say thx^^
  • Only the fabric looks good
  • And the model is slim and sleek
  • It’s a heavy one
  • Hard to turn left or right
  • The stroller always goes to sleep position after unfolding
  • No pockets
  • The under basket is small too
  • The brake system is a disaster - if you don’t have strong shoes it’s hard to pull it up

The stroller is not easy to use, we have to put a lot of force on the push bar to go forward or to turn left or right. Forget about uphill. It is quite heavy and it’s not so easy to unfold either. The front wheels' swivel function stopped working within 6 months of purchase, the front wheels are small so not suitable for the country side. Lifting the break is a tough task too.

Happy with it overall

It's not as lightweight as I hoped, but it's quite sturdy at least. It does, however, feel a bit heavier than it is while pushing, so the push is not as smooth I'm guessing (or it may be the center of gravity that doesn't fit me 100%.

The assembly was easy. It’s a doddle to fold, and it takes up very little space in my car boot. Basket is large enough. I do mind those ventilation sides - what wioth it in winter?! And the (small) brake is not flip-flot, or large dad-shoe friendly, since you have to kick it from the bottom to release it. Laat thing, the handle doesn't adjust, so if you're tall, you'll find yourself crouching a bit while pushing.

Anyway... happy with it overall.

  • nice folding
  • spacious
  • good-looking
  • stylish wheels
  • canopy
  • the backrest is always reclined when I unfold the stroller
  • \stiff\" suspension"
  • it doesn't go up curbs that easily

Overall, I am not the biggest fan of its driveability, but it's a stylish urban model that you can and will use until the end of stroller days.
