Continuously updating and improving existing products is at the heart of who we are and what we do. Because we want a Bugaboo to be an invitation to explore, to look ahead and not worry about obstacles. It is our daily drive to make it easy for anyone to go out and discover the world, whether that world is around the corner or farther away. Listening to how our consumers are using our products always inspires our designers to further enhance that freedom of movement. An example of this drive for constant improvement is the new Comfort Harness which is one of the many updates to be found in the Bugaboo Bee³ and also the Bugaboo by Diesel Cameleon³, which will be introduced in 2015 into Bugaboo Buffalo, Cameleon3 and Donkey.THE NEW COMFORT HARNESS
BUCKLE UP AND ENJOY THE RIDE
THE NEW COMFORT HARNESS IS EASY X3 • Easy to adjust as the five straps can be adjusted separately, so whether you need to make more room for growing hips, waists or shoulders, or just need more room for that winter jacket, the straps can grow along with your child. • Easy in with no more closed loops; thanks to the five independent point harness, every strap is easy to reach and easy to find, however fussy your passenger may be. Just click each of the straps into the central buckle – we’ve added dimples to show you the way – and after a resolute ‘click’, you’re good to go. • Easy out, with just one click all of the straps pop out of the middle console. Hassle free. Naturally, we have ensured that the pressure needed to unlock the button is fine-tuned to be in line with international safety regulations. Not only does the new Comfort Harness have improved functionality, it is safety and comfort in full harmony. In the looks department we’ve upgraded the Comfort Harness as well; repositioning safety warnings for a more streamlined look and we’ve tucked away remaining fabric from the straps so they are out of the way of tiny hands. Last but not least, as we do with all interactive parts on Bugaboo strollers, we have given the middle button our recognizable white color.
ADJUSTED SEAT FRAME AND FABRIC ON BUGABOO CAMELEON³
Eliminating obstacles can be as simple as eliminating the metal pins on the outside of the Bugaboo Cameleon³ frames, creating
an overall more aligned and clean look. The pins were originally used to attach the older model rain cover but are no longer
required. This seat fabric solution is backwards compatible to existing seat frames and Bugaboo Cameleon+.
– Aligned and clean look
BUGABOO DONKEY MODIFICATION DUE TO NEW REGULATION
In an effort to consistently maintain safety standards, Bugaboo ensures that all of our strollers are compliant with the latest regulations. As of September 10th 2015, a new addition will be implemented in the US stroller regulations: 16 CFR 1227 Safety Standard for Carriages and Strollers. This new requirement addresses the minimum and maximum opening area between the adjustable handlebar and the foot end of a bassinet, seat or car seat. This will further improve the prevention of potential head entrapments.This new regulation has an effect on the Bugaboo Donkey when used with a car seat. To secure the minimum and maximum allowed opening between the adjustable handlebar and the foot end of a car seat, we have implemented the following changes:
• Thicker handlebar foam
• New top handlebar shape
• New handlebar positions
• New laser markings on the handlebar side tubes to indicate the new handlebar positions
BUGABOO DONKEY CAR SEAT ADAPTERS
• New Maxi Cosi mono adapter

THICKER HANDLEBAR FOAMWe have increased the thickness of the handlebar by 1.5 mm/.1 cm. The added thickness gives the adjustable handlebar added comfort with a softer touch. NEW TOP HANDLEBAR SHAPE & NEW HANDLEBAR POSITIONS
We have redesigned the handlebar shape and positions to ensure the minimal and maximum allowable opening between the adjustable handlebar and foot end of the car seat. The top handlebar shape becomes a bit more rectangular.
LASER MARKINGS ON THE HANDLEBAR SIDE TUBES
We have improved the indication of the 6 new handlebar positions by adding laser markings on the inside of the handlebar side tubes. These markings show where the handlebar can and cannot be positioned.
• The two “x” signs are handlebar positions that have a clicking sound but they can’t be locked with the white handlebar clips. This is also explained with pictograms in the User Guide.
• The five “-” signs clearly demonstrate the places where the handlebar can be positioned and locked as seen in the images below.
INTRODUCTION OF AN UPDATED BUGABOO DONKEY MONO CAR SEAT ADAPTER FOR MAXI-COSI
Bugaboo offers a wide range of car seat adapters to connect 3rd party infant car seats onto the Bugaboo Donkey mono, duo or twin. The current Bugaboo Donkey mono adapter for the Maxi-Cosi car seat is adjusted, in order to comply with the new head entrapment addition of the US stroller regulation 16 CFR 1227 Safety Standard for Carriages and Strollers. The car seat is positioned slightly higher on the Bugaboo Donkey chassis. A new item code will be introduced to support this product change. The Bugaboo Donkey car seat adapters for Britax-Romer and Chicco do not need to change and stay available as is.
