Road.CC Posts Orp Again!

Road CC out of the U.K., posted their Orp review once again. The review is comprehensive, super positive ad there are only a few errors in terms ofspecs..

Here are some  excerpts:

“The unit itself is basically a blinkie in a blanket fed a course of steroids, though it occupies surprisingly little handlebar space. The outer silicone monocoque comprises a weatherproof housing and bar mount, and it’s available in eight funky colours.” Note : you know  this writer is from the UK as “colors” is spelled “colours”.

“Pressing the Wail Tail down unleashes the full 96db, which is piercing and vastly superior to other ‘compact’ battery-powered models. It’s proved audible enough to persuade three moped bandits to bring their front wheels back onto terra firma, deterred an absent minded learner motorcyclist from pulling out into my path, and potent enough to jolt distracted drivers along moderately trafficked suburban streets.”

Thanks road.cc. You can read it hear, I mean, here: http://road.cc/content/review/173013-orp-smart-horn

Seven Day Cyclist Reviews Orp

Seven Days co founder Michael Stenning gives Orp a super great review after  a grueling 6 weeks.  Rather than bore you with all the details here’s his conclusion:

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.

“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.”

The website The DadGuy.com, picks Orp as one of it recommended  bike accessories  for summer.

Dadguy mentions he has an Orp for himself and that his daughter loves Orp, too. He does wisely caution that Orps should only be given to  riders who are responsible enough not to blast the horn  randomly as it is loud.

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!
