www.burley.com), known for its award-winning child bicycle trailers trusted by generations of families since 1978, is proud to announce its new Burley Solstice® Jogging Stroller has received its third design award since launching in February 2015. The Solstice was awarded a “professional notable” nod in the 2015 Core77 Design Awards in the transportation category.
The Core77 Design Awards recognize excellence in all areas of design
enterprise and celebrate the richness of the design profession and
brilliance of its practitioners. The honored designers and projects,
including the Burley Solstice, were selected by 14 category-dedicated
juries for their innovation and creativity.
The new Burley Solstice is the perfect blend of style and function
that enables parents to share their passion for the outdoors with the
newest addition to the family. Like all Burley products, the Solstice is
built with thoughtful design, innovative safety and rugged durability
The five-person jury noted the Solstice for its innovative and
“clever solutions” such as one-handed folding technology and S.I.T.TM
(spring-integrated technology) seat, which is incorporated into the
harness to make it easier to load and unload a child. Said one juror, “I
think it’s fantastic…In terms of function it’s definitely a step ahead
of where its competitors are today.”
“We are extremely pleased our new Solstice jogging stroller continues
to gain acknowledgement in the design community,” said Burley CEO
Michael Coughlin. “Our talented product team really thought through what
was lacking in the market in terms of functionality and came up with a
pretty unique solution. We are committed to raising the bar when it
comes to innovative design in outdoor recreational transport gear for
the whole family.”
This is the third award Burley has received since making its entry
into the stroller market. Earlier this year, the company announced the
Solstice had been awarded two prestigious European awards for excellence
in design — the iF Design Award and Red Dot Award.

The Solstice will continue to be featured in the iF design app, which
the iF organization describes as “a source of inspiration, an archive, a
guide to and a mirror of contemporary design” and is available in the
Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The stroller will also be
featured in one of three subsequent special shows in the iF design
exhibition in Hamburg–a permanent exhibition located in the very center
of Hamburg’s HafenCity.
