Orp Gets Totaled!

Orp gets a great shout-out on the Total website out of the UK. The article list the best bells on the market and  says Orp is the  most unique

considering it includes a light,  has two  functional sounds,  and it works in all weather. This website caters to   women cyclists and is pretty slick.

Red Bull snorts about Orp

While on holiday for the season, we received an email from Maurizio Ridolfo, the editor of RedBull.com,

letting us know Orp got a great review in their  bike bell blow out. Here’s some of it:

 Se si preferisce l’elettronica alla meccanica c’è questo bel campanello-luce prodotto da Orp. Emette due suoni a seconda che lo si azioni spostando la leva in alto o in basso. I suoni sono di 76 o 96 decibel per essere sentiti da tutti. È impermeabile e si ricarica tramite USB, un oggetto al posto di due!

Oh yeah, it’s in Italian, but trust me, it’s  all good and they even say Orp is beautiful.

ORP MAKES GQ’s BEST TECHNOLOGY GIFTS AGAIN!

I was perusing the interwebs and came a cross this  2016 GQ gift guide and guess who made the list? That’s right, Orp did and we didn’t pay  them a cent for it. Pretty nice and maybe we should put an ad  in the next quarter as a Thank You.  Check this section and we’ll post the news when it happens.

In any,  a big thanks GQ!

Orp 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.  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. 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 broadcast national news.

Here’s the link to the spot:

Thanks to Dick,  the ABC anchor and ABC news for picking Orp!

Hear’s, I mean, Here’s the ETA on Orp

The Environmental Transport Alliance, or ETA, is a carbon-neutral provider of vehicle breakdown, bicycle and travel insurance for the environmentally concerned consumer. They are based in the U.K. They just (ok last week-we were at Interbike… sorry) put up a very positive post on Orp . They like that Orp combines light and sound and even though they did to mention it, they probably appreciate that Orp is rechargeable. It really is the Tesla of Bike horn Lights. They’re even running a contest to give away a free Orp to a lucky reader. Here’s the post.

Lastly the  commenters  on this story were especially positive and courteous, maybe because they wanted to win an Orp or maybe they’re just more civil.  I really like the one from Mr. George Baker, He says “Looks very jazzy. Pick me, pick me, pick me, please”.  Mr, Baker , if you contact us at Orpland, we’ll send you one!

In any case, here’s a sampling:
