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.

Hey, an Orp buyer let us know about this gift guide where Orp is recommended from triathlete DC RAINMAKER. This was published on Bike Portland.org.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 Bike Portland and thank s Ray! Here’s the link:
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.
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 makes the list of the top 15 things every cyclist needs according to Buzz Feed.
It looks like BuzzFeed solicited readers and then printed the submissions they liked best.
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!
Stuff Magazine out of the UK does a giant story on Orp. Ok, it’s really not so giant but Orp is in there. Here’s a smart phone pic of the page with a little blow up of the spot. Thanks to Jessica for sending this in.
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:
Many of you will remember Orp was on the Today Show a month after we released production units and now that segment is being released again on the interwebs. Orp fans will remember that the Today show staff did not show all of Orp’s features accurately, but holy cow, Orp got on the Today Show! Thanks Today Show!
Here’s the link to the video so you can relive that moment again and again.
This time BIKE RADAR ‘s UK division has included Orp in its 11spd feature that covers new gear in the bike world. This appears to be a teaser as they plan to give Orp a thorough test.
I’m pretty sure they liked Orp the first and second times so we remain hopeful and appreciate the coverage. In any case, here’s the article. Thanks Bike Radar!
