Orpland and Orp got picked out of the interwebs by Wonderland. Wonderland is a blog out of the Netherlands that picks out (curates – I hate that word) cool stuff in Design, Innovation and Business and packs it into one place. Thanks Wonderland!
Here’s the post:
Ever influencing proper behavior of it’s male reader population, GQ chose Orp as the proper alert device to have whilst riding one’s bike. Certainly a gentleman can yell, but the risk of overly mucussed saliva errantly spewing over ones attire and spoiling it (especially in the morning phlegm hours) is too high.
Certainly GQ does not need to gush over Orp’s handsomeness as it is clearly apparent in the full page picture. I’m kidding about the full page part. Actually, they were much less “metrosexual” in their article – I added that too.
The local NBC affiliate, KGW Channel 8, here in Portland, Orpegon, I mean, Oregon did a story on Orp after a spate of bike vs. vehicle accidents. These were really bad and our sympathies go out to the cyclists and their families. You can see it hear, I mean, here.
Orp gets in Time magazine’s online issue in their “9 Bicycle Gadgets That Will Keep You Safe In Style” article. That’s right, Orp was one of the 9 products!
You can see the article hear, I mean, here.
Turbo Bob, the non stop cycling blogger out of southern California, gives the REMORP a callused thumbs up in this video review. Bob, who already likes the Orp, highly recommends the REMORP. We couldn’t agree more. You can see Bob’s review here.
Orp just received a positive review in this German blog. It’s all in German but I translated it and it’s pretty nice. Thanks Daniel! You can read it (in German) here.
Cycling Plus, a cycling site from Sweden on the interwebs gave a Orp a super positive review. Big thanks to Orp’s distributor MS Sports AB in Sweden. You can read it in Swedish here.
Here’s the original Swedish version:
Orp Central Command just got word that Underwriters Laboratory’s (UL) Safe Bee Website gave Orp a big recommendation in it’s ” 5 Gadgets to Make Biking Safer” post. It’s not only a safe Bee its a smart Bee. Look at those glasses!
That’ right, it’s the second time Outside has mentioned Orp in less than a year. This time Orp gets selected as part of their Perfect Cold Weather Commuting Kit. Orp is super honored and and when asked about the notice, Orp made his friendly sound
and blushed (or his low Battery indicator light came on). Thanks Outside!

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!
