DISCONTINUED in 2020

The Bugaboo Fox is a new Bugaboo stroller released in March 2018. This stylish, multipurpose stroller is a successor of the Buffalo. All the advantages of the Bugaboo strollers are concentrated in the Fox. The Fox is light and easily maneuverable like Cameleon 3. Like a Buffalo, the Fox can handle even a rougher terrain. The suspension located in the central joint and on the front wheels is the same as in the Runner. The compact fold of the chassis has been inspired by the model Bee 5. Similarly to the Donkey 2, the Fox can handle even a high weight. The Fox will surprise you with the range of new, unique elements such as a simplified removing of seat/carrycot fabrics or a handy brake with a color indicator engaged as well as deactivated by pushing. The strap of the five-point harness are a stay-open style which makes putting the child into the seat much easier. The height of the belts can be easily adjusted by sliding, so there is no longer need to pull them out.

The environment-friendly fabric of the carrycot and the seat is made out of recycled PET bottles and is added to the same frame which can be easily attached to the chassis. The ergonomically shaped bucket seat can be fully reclined by tilting. The seat is suitable for 6 months of age upwards. You can also use the Fox from birth/ for newborns by purchasing the spacious carrycot which is available separately or as a part of the set. The carrycot in combination with an optional stand can also be used as a cot. Using adapters, you can also attach an optional car seat to the stroller to create a travel system suitable from birth. The Fox features integrated attachment points so you can directly attach various available accessories such as the adapter for Bugaboo wheeled board with a sibling seat or the Bugaboo Mammoth Bag which holds up to 12 kg.

The Fox can be either purchased as a complete set or it can be fully customized. With the chassis available in either silver or black and an option to choose from several different colors of the carrycot fabric, the seat fabric, leatherette handlebar cover and a bumper bar as well as the wheel caps, there are countless possibilities for you to adapt your stroller to your taste. Hoods are available in three collections: the basic Core, the superior Premium, and the luxurious, patterned Signature. Summer versions with ventilation can also be purchased. All of the parts can be bought separately and alternated.

Lightweight, spacious

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Colors fitting any taste or mood
  • Large basket
  • Large carrycot
  • Spacious seat
  • I found none

Lightweight, spacious. Large basket. The fabrics can be changed according to your taste and mood.

I would buy it again

4
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to maneuver
  • Spacious bassinet
  • Spacious seat part
  • Height-adjustable handlebar
  • Large basket
  • Good for bad terrain
  • Large canopy
  • The fold is not as easy as the instruction video shows
  • Impractical zipper-closing of the carrycot apron
  • The bumper bar is also not that smooth to put on

A perfect pushchair, I recommend it. I would buy it again.

  • Lightweight
  • Quick to fold and unfold
  • Compact
  • Spacious seat as well as bassinet - even for those larger babies
  • One-hand push
  • For me, nothing

I love it. One of the best! 👌

My son is almost 2yo, and we still use the same stroller system. We didn't even think of changing.

Sturdy and stable

4
  • lightweight
  • for shorter as well as taller parents
  • quality wheels
  • stable
  • difficult to fold - to push the locks on both sides then slide them at the same time is quite annoying
  • the same goes for the carrycot zipper - it’s nice that it’s hidden under the (waterproof) fabric, but it makes it difficult to (un)zip

A great stroller - lightweight, excellent manipulation. It is sturdy and stable, with a large basket and a much stronger, sturdier handle than the Cameleon. The wheels are quite robust - suitable even for more difficult terrain.

An excellent pram with no downsides

The best stroller I pushed

5
  • Extending hood
  • Terrain-capable
  • Spacious enough
  • Fuss-free push
  • Huge basket
  • It can carry a big, heavy load
  • A lot of accessories available
  • Even after a lot of use, it's still like new
  • Lightweight
  • Compact

The best stroller I ever pushed.

  • lightweight
  • compact
  • agile
  • able to carry a lot
  • great pockets inside the basket, really practical :-)
  • perfect for more difficult terrain as well as for the city
  • I don’t recommend it for mommies shorter than 170 cm (the center of gravity is not the greatest when the handlebar is fully pushed in) - for me (175 cm) it’s ok

I don’t recommend it for mommies shorter than 170 cm (the center of gravity is not the greatest when the handlebar is fully pushed in) - for me (175 cm) it’s ok

I had a lot of strollers, and if I compare it with Quinny, Jané, Stokke Xplory, and Stokke Trailz, Mima Xari… for me, it is the best. To the center of gravity that I heard a few complaints about, I want to say - for shorter moms, the popping up curbs or other obstacles may be problematic because the weight distribution/center of gravity is the best when the handlebar is almost fully extended. For someone my height (175 cm) it’s just perfect 🙂

It can be compared to Stokke Trailz, but it’s lighter, folds in one piece (you don’t need to click off any part, as you do with the Trailz), and the wheels are full rubber, so there is no risk of a puncture 😉 Plastics don’t scratch as easily as they do with Trailz. The basket is a wee smaller than the Trailz’s, but it takes a lot anyway. Fox is also much easier to handle.

BEST STROLLER I HAD 💋💋💋
