The most badass stroller ever made

I fondly remember the years I lived like a rockstar, and have happily put them behind me. But then a stroller like this comes along and I. Just. Can’t. Help. Myself. The limited edition Bugaboo by Diesel Rock collection.

Now there are a few types of strollers in this world:

1) Umbrella strollers that are light, cheap and kill your back if you’re actually taller than 5’4″

2) Sensible and moderately priced strollers that come in all sorts of baby patterns like pink giraffes and blue teddy bears

3) SUV strollers that can ram through anything – from sand dunes to snowbanks

I’m number 3. I’m the original Bugaboo mama who was so excited to take her stroller for a test drive that my poor cat had to ride around in that bright red Bugaboo Frog for 5 weeks.

Poor cat. But my boy sure loved it, and we went everywhere with that stroller. Living in the city you get to do a lot of walking through the neighbourhood, and the Bugaboo was the perfect ride.

But that was back in 2008. If I were doing it now, it would have to be this bad boy:

It has studs.

STUDS!

It has a few elements that appeal to that girl that once lived like a rockstar: The backrest has a laser-cut emblem, ever-so-tattoo-like, with Diesel’s slogan “Only The Brave” emblazoned in the black-on-black surface. If that’s not the slogan of parenthood, then I just don’t know what is. The wax-coated fabric gives that wet, leather look (but with all the comfort baby needs on the soft interior!). There’s no simple chrome, the anodized metal chassis is sleek, jet black. The silver buttons pop like the metal on that guy’s biker jacket he tossed so effortlessly into the DJ booth.

It’s the stroller you’d take to the night club – except the night club is in your home, and it’s a party of two, maybe three. It’s more of a feeding time than a closing time. But awesome.

This limited edition is part of the Limited edition Bugaboo by Diesel Rock Collection which hit the market on April 1, with all of the matching accessories like footmuff, bassinet and canopy.
