Britax B-Nimble Umbrella Stroller

Product description

Britax B-Nimble stroller is a single-seat umbrella stroller and has the following product codes:

  • U311771 (red)
  • U311773 (green)
  • U311775 (cowmooflage)
  • U311780 (silver-black)

The name "Britax" can be found on the front. On the stroller frame, near the storage basket, there should be a white label on each side of the stroller with the stroller model numbers, batch numbers and date of manufacture.

Hazard identified

The stroller's brake may produce an audible click when initially engaged and the brake pedal may remain depressed even though the brake has not fully engaged or locked. It may be necessary to continue to depress the brake pedal beyond the moment of the audible click to achieve full brake function. The initial click may create the false impression with the consumer that the brake is engaged.

Neither Britax, the US CPSC nor Health Canada has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of the brake function of the B-Nimble stroller.
