Bugaboo Bee 6

NEW 2020

The Bugaboo Bee 6 was released at the end of 2020, and another generation of the Bee line - a modern, urban, compact reversible stroller. It is different from its predecessor, the Bugaboo Bee 5, mainly with the 7-inch wheels with an optimized suspension system, helping you to get over bumps and holes of the city sidewalks easier than ever before. The seat unit of the Bee 6 pushchair is a bit higher on the chassis (44 cm from the ground). The new, high-performance breathable seat padding was also added, not only being functional but also cooler-looking (it could even remind you of race cars a little). The rear, plastic part of the seat unit is now perforated = well ventilated, great for hot summer days. The Bee 6 will also make you happy with its higher, 22kg maximum weight capacity of the seat. Its canopy was also redesigned, featuring linen-style fabrics and side ventilation mesh windows. The bumper bar was also changed, and with the sixth iteration, included with the Bee automatically (not optional, as it was before). The handlebar being on the square side, it is made so that the folded stroller's PU leather handlebar covers won't get damaged since there's a mechanism in the rear part holding the folded Bee 6 upright. You even can fold the Bee 6 one-handedly from this gen on.

The Bee 6 is available in the pushchair mode, still being fully reversible and reclinable up to a lie-flat. The modular, backrest- and sitting space-length-adjustable seat unit can be replaced by a full-featured bassinet or car seat adapters to create a travel system. The carrycot can be put even higher on the frame thanks to the newly available height adapters - or you can insert it onto the seat unit (the height adapters feature a simplified carrycot removal easy-peasy - and one-handed - thanks to the springs mechanism releasing it). The carrycot also got an upgrade in the bottom part, where the Breezy ventilation window, and on the carry handles, not covered with premium leatherette. One of the last updates of the Bee 6 that could interest you would be the sleek design elements in the form of darkened rivets and joints, a stitched Bugaboo logo on the fabrics, a new look of the rear part of the backrest. Many extra accessories are, of course, available to purchase separately to complement your Bee.
