ant vs bee

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.

Fold

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.
