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.

Valet Picks Orp for Biking

Valet Magazine is an online Men’s Lifestyle website , out of Austin Texas, recommends Orp as a key part of its Ultimate Bike Kit. This is essential gear this stylish, GQ like site

recommends one should use while (or is it whilst?) biking. We could not agree more, though we’re not sure any of us possess the personal grooming habits

Valet portrays.

DC Rainmaker Picks Orp!

Orp is recommended  by triathlete and  pro Gear reviewer DC RAINMAKER for his 5 Awesome Sports Tech Products under $80 for the Holidays video. Orp shows up at 3:34. Ray (the guy) doesn’t show all the functions or the REMORP, but he’s great guy and he was even an original Kickstarter backer.  Thanks to Ray! Here’s the link:



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!




Orp Gets on GIZ WIZ!

Dick Debartolo, writer for Mad Magazine and Host of Giz Wiz and  gadget editor for  ABC’s World News Now gives a great review of Orp.

We met Dick at Interbike and he spent a bunch of time with us, he even made a video of Orp. He’ s a great guy with boundless energy and he’s all over the internet.





We drove  975 miles in two days to get to this year’s Interbike. The show was good for us. We met a lot of great people and the only people that hated us were our direct  trade show booth neighbors.Unfortunately, our neighbors were all in the financial services business for  independent bike dealers. It wasn’t terrible if you dont mind Orp horn sounds going off every few seconds, but if you’re the banker type that is more accustomed to speaking in hushed tones, it’s not so great.

Below are some pics from the event. The first one is Interbike a day before the  show’s open. It was amazing it was all up in time.  The next one is  is a union trades person putting up an Orp banner. The last one is Jill with two Brazillian Distributors and their Orp wristbands. The wrist bands were given out as part of a raffle for the free Orp we gave away each day of the show.

Loud Vegas

That’s right, Orp is off to Las Vegas for some high rollin’ debauchery and general carousing. It’ll be like the 40th time we’ve seen the Blue Man Group.

Kidding.  Orp is going to Vegas for the 2016 Interbike Trade show. We’re loading up the jalopy for a modern day Grapes Of Wrath  intrastate adventure.

It’s either Grapes of Wrath or the Beverly Hillbillies, either way- loaded to the gills,

If you’re in hollerin’ distance, come visit us at Booth #14141 at the Mandelay Bay Convention Center.

Our booth will be a big version of this:
