Orp Gets Tested by BikePortland.Org!

Editor and Publisher of Bike Portland, Jonathan Maus, had covered Orp during and just after Orp’s
Kickstarter campaign and now he gives  production Orps a real life  review.
The conclusion is Orp is awesome (OK, he didn’t like that Orps trigger wasn’t under thumb so he
mounted it oddly)  and Jonathan even credited Orp’s Loud sound with saving his bacon
on one of his rides.   Just a heads up, Orp’s remote, REMORP, is coming shortly so mounting an Orp ideally will
be  easy and the switch will always be under thumb!

MTBR does a riding review of Orp!

Gregg Kato did a review of Orp during our Kickstarter campaign and he followed up
with a riding review of the production product.   Its an awesome review.
He shows our demo video and  and Orp’s directions and he uses it on a Mountain Bike
and likes it!

 We  know Orp is good for  for MTBers as you need to alert other riders  and runners
 on shared trails that you’re coming around that turn.

My only complaints,  and this is only because I’m a complainer, are:
1. He calls Orp a light with a horn . We  say Orp is a Horn with a light.
2. Orp is a beacon light- (it says so right on the box), a “to be seen light” yet he’s  sort  of comparing  Orp to a ” light the way” light.

 Gregg clearly knows its a beacon as he says so several times in the article. Like I said I like to complain.
Overall great  review,  t hanks Gregg!

Holy Cow! Orp got into the Wall Street Journal this  last weekend.
Short, sweet and to the Point. Thanks WSJ!
This issue is a two day edition running both Saturday and Sunday so you get
a double dose of Orp goodness.
We  provided the Orp photo and the WSJ team tilted it.  I wish we had thought of that.



London Evening Standard

Orp gets  in a story with 4 other bike bells { yeah I know, we’re a light as well}
 in this prestigious british journal. Clearly Orp is the  best of the  bunch (  …Ok I’m saying that).

Kent’s Bike Blog

Kent’s Bike Blog gives Orp a second review as he gave Orp a positive mention during  Orp’s Kicksatrter campaign and this time it was with real  life production Orps.
Kent’s  review also helped Orp get  on Amazon’s review radar as well. So far so good.
Thanks Kent! You can read the whole review here.
