The Britax B-Motion 3 is a three-wheel stroller with a non-reversible seat. You can also choose a more stable four-wheel version B-Motion 4. The B-Motion is heavier than the lower-range B-Agile strollers, however, it is also more spacious and can handle even a rougher terrain thanks to the air-filled tires with suspension. You can adjust the handle by rotating it. Folding is very fast and requires only one hand. The mechanism of harness adjustment is also one-handed. The seat is slightly reclined even in the upright position. You can recline it flat. It is not possible to adjust the leg rest, you can however slightly push it upwards. Using the optional soft carrycot, a carrycot or a car seat you can create any desired set. It is also available as a complete stroller system.

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • Easy handling
  • Reclinable up to a lie flat
  • Very compact
  • High quality design
  • Lack of leg positioning
  • Cannot turn to face parent

We are very satisfied with the stroller. The only disadvantage is that you need to buy a lot of accessories.

Very very happy with this

4

Very very happy with this one.

Great stroller, easy handling

5

Great stroller, easy handling. And the PLUS version, although I don't have it, but it's just much better. I originally wanted a 4-wheeled one, but I think the 3-wheeler one is even better, just need to inflate the wheels now and then.

The stroller lacks reverse facing for small children and leg positioning. Otherwise it is perfect.

Extremely satisfied

5
  • Spacious
  • Easy to use
  • Great for off-road
  • Large enough basket
  • Nothing in my opinion

I have experience with the three-wheeler and I was extremely satisfied.

The best

5
  • traverses any terrain
  • comfortable
  • foldable
  • easy handling

The best stroller.

  • All-terrain
  • Narrow - rides well between racks even in small spaces
  • Beautiful
  • Sufficient storage space
  • Handy handle
  • Compact
  • It is not possible to extend the handle for a buggy board for a toddler (although if he already rides on a scooter) - but it can still stand there
  • Otherwise, nothing

The Britax B-Motion is just perfect. I wanted 3 wheels so it would store better in the trunk of the car and the wheels are a bit more off-road, so it's good for both shopping as well as for the woods. The brown colour looks very elegant. I have the cover cleaned so it is still as good as new. I have to say, I wouldn't want another one. We will use it for less than 2 years, then I can sell the whole 3 in 1 system.

Extremely satisfied

4
  • All is great
  • The only thing that bothers me is that those belts that position the backrest get more difficult and twisted over time. And I'm being careful :-)

We are extremely satisfied with the stroller. It can handle everything :-) I would not change it.

We will use it for the second child

4
  • For terrain
  • Easy folding/unfolding
  • Easy handling - one-handed turning
  • Not quite well designed reclining backrest, but it doesn't affect the function... You just need both hands to lift it up

Satisfaction, we will use it for the second child.

Can handle terrain and snow

4

It is excellent. Easy to operate with one hand, can handle terrain and snow. The only thing I would improve is the foot positioning, but the newer PLUS models already have that.

Your questions about the Britax B-Motion 3

1)

Hi,

I'm wondering if this stroller could be used for jogging? With the air-filled wheels and suspension on all 3 tires, it sounds like it would be ok for someone who's not a serious/intense runner. You had mentioned the Casualplay Loopi to me when I asked about the Baby Jogger City Elite and jogging, but unfortunately, it doesn't have a swivel wheel in front and I need that as well, since we do live in the city and I need to navigate smaller spaces as well.

Thanks so much for your thoughts and help!

Hi again, Molly,

Yes, I did mention the Casualplay LOOPi, actually BECAUSE of the fixed wheel - it is actually much better for jogging, BUT also because of the other set of wheels - smaller swivel wheels - available to purchase the eas well, so you'd use your LOOPi fully in the running as well as the urban conditions. But of course, it doesn't need to fit your lifestyle, changing the frame's bottoms.

About the B-Motion, I would actually, at least, in this case, advise against it. As a three-wheeler, and a robust model, it theoretically ticks the right boxes, BUT the negative here is the very short handlebar that would make you very close to the stroller's base as well as the rear axle. It, of course, theoretically could be used as a VERY OCCASIONAL jogger, BUT I personally wouldn't use it like that as I know this model, at least for me, has quite a bad center of gravity and (or maybe because of) the push bar length.

Rather go for the Baby Jogger City Elite 2, to be honest, it is of a much better quality. Or, if a pre-owned and older model is also acceptable, a Jané Slalom or a Chicco S3 are models I saw multiple moms run with, occasionally.
