The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is the third generation of the iconic high-end urban Bugaboo Cameleon
. It was released in 2012. Of all the versions, it has the most improvements.
The chassis of the stroller has a more robust center and will no longer lock-up after being folded. The significantly larger shopping basket was also improved. You can hear the clicking sound when adjusting the handlebar. It helps you orientate in individual positions. The hand strap is now smaller and not adjustable. The front solid wheels have simpler joints. They can be removed by pressing the white button in the front, instead of pulling the wheel mechanism from above.
The seat and the carrycot textiles are attached to the same frame which is simply attached to a chassis. The bucket seat can be tilted to a fully reclined position. The seat with wider leg rest is reinforced in the joints. The swing-away bumper bar makes it easier to put the child into the seat. The improved safety harness can now be adjusted with one hand simply by sliding it. The Cameleon 3 is available as a 2in1 stroller system, you can also purchase a separate chassis. The basic 2in1 stroller system does not include a color set, which you have to buy separately. Purchasing other ones later will allow you to customize your stroller throughout its lifespan. You can choose between standard length or extendable hoods. With the optional car seat with adapters, you can create a 3in1 stroller system. The Cameleon 3 has a leatherette handle and bumper bar (instead of the foam ones) since 2017.
It can be purchased in many color designs including special and limited editions, best known of which are Sahara, All Black, Neon, collaboration with designers Viktor&Rolf, or collaboration with Diesel - Diesel Military. The year 2017 also brought the New Classic Collection, Kite, Elements, Atelier Collection, designer Niark1 edition and the tiger-patterned We Are Handsome collaboration, followed by the toucan-patterned We Are Handsome col. 2 in 2018.
