Britax B-Motion 4

see 1 parent review

The Britax B-Motion 4 is a four-wheel stroller with a non-reversible seat. You can also choose the more versatile three-wheel version, known as the Britax B-Motion 3. The B-Motion is heavier than the strollers of the lower B-Agile series, 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^^
  • higher weight capacity
  • spaciousness
  • easy steering
  • compact enough for the car
  • almost all-terrain
  • small, inaccessible basket
  • very slanted sitting position - you need a strap put behind to make it better (we used an old belt)
  • short canopy (the extension is just mesh - you can swap it for the B-Motion Plus canopy (can be purchased separately)
  • no leg rest adjustment - we made our own thing to put under it and make the legrest stay up

We only used the stroller in the pushchair mode, so I don't know how much about the bassinet or the car seat. Overall, I am satisfied, we bought it for winter use and its spacious seat - criteria this stroller meets perfectly. It will accommodate a 94 cm 2-year-old wrapped in a fleece jacket and a blanket - it there was still room to spare 😄

Your questions about the Britax B-Motion 4

1)

Hi!

Would you happen to know, if the Britax B-Motion 4 stroller is compatible with the Britax B-Agile 4 front winter wheels? I´m struggling to find an answer from anywhere or anyone. In the pictures online they look pretty much the same.

Best wishes, Jo from Finland

Hello, Jo,

We tried with just the usual (non-fixed) front wheels, and yes, the front axle of the Britax B-Motion and the Britax B-Agile lines is compatible with one and other wheels. It is not a perfect solution, but it can be clicked in, yes.

Fyi, even the rear wheels are compatible, but one needs to swap the internal axles (the small silver ones - to use the B-Motion type axles even with B-Agile wheels if on the B-Motion pushchair and vice versa) as well, otherwise the brake wouldn't work.

With this non-swivel axle, I never tried, but it makes sense it should be compatible. However, the thing is that the B-Agile terrain axle is EVA foam only, so it's going to be lower to the ground than the rear wheels with tires of the B-Motion.

There was, in fact, also a B-Motion fixed-wheels axle available in the past, but not anymore. Maybe it's worth checking in classifieds.

In any case, it should be compatible, yes, but it's not the best fit.
