Orp News

GQ picks Orp Again!

Cool spotting  style guide and  provider of popular discussion of current events, GQ ,once again picks Orp as a go to gift in its annual Gift Guide. This particular listing  puts Orp in a grouping of  functional stylish gifts for the more sporting of guys.

Of course, Orp being somewhat of a hermaphrodite itself with both horn and light, is gender neutral and works well with men women and those who prefer not to be  so narrowly classified.



Seven Day Cyclist Rides Orp Hard

Seven Day Cyclist magazine  gives Orp a thorough  lashing, I mean,  review and Orp comes up looking and sounding good.  Michel Stenning , a co-founder of the site,  contacted us a couple of months ago to see if we’d give him an Orp for review. Of course, we said “yes”, but he’d need to wait until  we had more Orps in stock. Soon enough we sent a couple of Orps and Remorps out to the UK.  Getting the Orps to Michael proved difficult as the post ofice seemed to be teasing us regarding delivery.   The USPS reported it delivered while Michael had nothing.  After Michael and I both pestered the local Post,  the Orps finally appeared.. No question, Brexit has everyone on edge.

Michael  provides a thorough description and  a rigorous review of Orp.

See that intro above?  Holy cow, this guy is tough He told me he would  only report on Orp only after he rode with it for at least 6 weeks. Nervous, schmervous- we have netves of steel, though some of us had to change  pants often.

Here are a couple of excerpts:

“A good downward blast is enough to stop pedestrians from wandering into the road and absent minded drivers thought twice before flinging doors open. Yes, I am talking town centres and at rush hour too.”

“Nonetheless, a three second press brought a young woman taking selfies, while behind the wheel back into the moment. Her filthy look and palpable sense of entitlement prompted a second, more genteel flick of the 76db. Both tones are subtly different and distinguishable against the backdrop of competing noise pollution.”


The Orp Smart Horn is a really clever concept, exceptionally well executed. It does both of its jobs very competently and represents excellent value for money. It could be all the front light light some sub/urban riders need. The horn’s function is also superior to any other electronic system I’ve used in the past and the tones appropriate for most contexts, too.

The Evening Standard Picks Orp, Again

“London calling, Hello Orp we think you’re Ace and would like to feature you in our latest  Smart Bike Bell  story in the Standard. We quite like the squidgey skin and the bleeding loud sounds you make. Certainly keeps the whole ride to work from going pear shaped. Fancy sending us a sample and some pics by the  7th? Thanks and Bob’s your uncle.”

That was the voicemail we heard a couple of weeks ago about Orp being in the ES.  Posted today.

Here’s the print edition.

Orp gets tapped for GQ’s Best Technology Gifts Again!

It’s unprecedented, but Orp got picked for GQ’s 2016 best technology gift guide  once again for the upcoming consumer frenzy, I mean, holidays. I heard that two GQ staffers were looking at an Orp and the one bearded guy said “I’d tap that”. His colleague looked at him, started laughing and then tapped Orp’s Wail Tail and fired the loud horn. Stupid and funny. In any case, thanks  GQ!




Orp Rides Road CC again!

Orp gets picked up in a compilation review of a bunch of front lights on the UK  cycling website Road CC.

It’s a really positive review especially in light that Orp is a horn first!



Here’s a nice response from the writer to a question in the comments section of the article on Orp:




Orp Gets On ABC’s World News Now!

Orp was featured in a segment called Bike Gear Must Haves for Fall on World News Now with Dick Debartolo and Kendis Gibson.We met Dick at Interbike and he said Orp would get World News Now and  sure enough, he did it. He showed both an Aorta Red Orp in its Package and a naked Snot Green Orp he demonstrated. Kendis wanted one to blast one of his colleagues. Dick didn’t exactly get Orp’s model name correct, he called it the “Orp Wail Tail” which is a part of Orp, but holy cow, this is great to be shown on  national network news.

Here’s the link to the spot:


Thanks to Dick, Kendis and ABC news for picking Orp!
