With the addition of the Bugaboo Ant to the lineup, so many want to know how the new Bugaboo Ant compares to the popular Bugaboo Bee5 stroller. We’ve lined them up to compare so that you can choose the one that best fits your lifestyle!
The Basic Difference
We’re going to go in depth here to compare them, however the basic difference is that the Bee5 is a compact urban stroller that is designed for all around the town. The Bugaboo Ant is a super lightweight stroller that is designed best for travel. The Bugaboo Bee5 is a bigger, more sturdy stroller with many more infant options, while the Bugaboo Ant is a tiny folding stroller that is amazing for travel.
The fold on the two strollers is very different. The Bugaboo Bee5 folds down compactly with the use of two triggers on either side of the stroller, folding in one quick motion. The Bugaboo Ant fold is a few steps, but the final fold is much smaller.
Handlebar & Canopy
The canopy on both strollers extends. The Canopy on the Bee5 is slightly bigger. The premium Ant style kits feature a hood with mesh windows for extra breathability. Both the Ant and the Bee5 feature an adjustable handlebar. There are more handlebar positions on the Bee5. The handlebar on the Ant stroller can be extended when the stroller is folded to be used as a trolley handle to pull along.
The seat on the Bugaboo Bee5 is a larger seat than the Ant. Both strollers feature a reversible seat that reclines as well. The Bee5 seat has more recline positions. Both the Bugaboo Bee5 and Bugaboo Ant can accommodate an infant car seat with the use of adapters. The Bugaboo Bee5 also offers the option for a proper Bassinet, while the Ant uses a cocoon to accommodate infants.
