Have an Orp story to share? Drop us a line and let us know!

Also, I did not expect a reply from the designer!  So let me say how pleased I am with your product.  In fact this morning I heard another cyclist using theirs behind me and we had a nice chat at the red light about how awesome Orps are.  The remote is just genius, and mine is cute as can be with its Tom Selleck ‘stache.

…, I think that’s pretty good going for a little bike light.  I can’t find anything to match it here in the UK, most of the horns are either massive & air driven or make stupid ineffective noises/are designed for kids.  It has saved my bacon on numerous occasions, mostly pedestrians stepping out in London traffic.

My ORP is charged up for its 3rd year of dark mornings in Australia.  Bikes in Australia must have a bell or horn by law, so ORP’s light-and-horn combo is perfect and I rate it a 5-star product. Actually, it could be better than that: mine went through the washing machine in the back pocket of a jersey and still works fine!  Like it says on the website, ORP is definitely “accident resistant” though I wouldn’t recommend my approach to cleaning.  Thanks for a great product.

My last ORP was on its last leg when it went missing. I look forward to meeting my new buddy for shouting at cars.

Howdy Orp Team, I wanted to send a note! Your light rocks! It has been mounted on the bike for 4 years and still growing strong! My light is solar charged…from my off solar set up. I love how long the light stayed charged as I travel a ton and then get home… my other lights are dead but not the Orp!… Thanks so much for keeping me and all others safe! Peace!!! KEEP IT UP

I bought a black one and a REMORP for my wife’s bike. We just received it yesterday and it’s already saved her bacon this morning. She likes to ride early AM when it’s not quite yet daylight and wears full reflective gear plus flashing bike lights. Even with all that, a neighborhood lunatic started to pull out out in front of her this morning. She jammed the REMORP, sent the ORP into high gear, and the driver stopped. Whew! I guess the driver could hear, but could not see! THANKS ORP!

The Orp has straight up saved my life. After living in both San Francisco and Portland I found myself in New York City and not being able to yell at enough cabbies, Citi bikers, and just oblivious tourists in my daily ride. I did some research online and found a few different bike horns, but most were way too large for my constant on and off the bike lifestyle. I ended up going with the Orp. While nothing can get through to some oblivious New York City drivers, the Orp sure as shit has saved my life in many other situations. Whether it was scaring a “salmon rider” on a busy one way, or letting a mob of people know that I was not going to stop just because they were jaywalking, This Thing Really Works. I found the combination of strobe light and horn one of the most effective things for night time riding. I’ll keep my headlamp on so I can shine it in any direction, but the effectiveness of the audio and visual [elements] of the Orp is unmatched.

I found myself back in Portland and with a slightly damaged Orp after almost 2 years of heavy usage. I took it down Tory at their SE shop and he had me in and out with a good as new product in less than 5 minutes. Stoked to be supporting a rad local company that is a huge reason I survived the East Coast.

Thanks Tory and the team at FUSE for making such a rad product!

Not sure how old it is. More than a year, and about 10 avoided accidents due to the horn! 🙂

Your product is amazing. I have been using both of my Orps on my bikes every time I ride. It will be coming up on one year of flawless satisfaction.

P.S. I routed my remote under my hood.

If you ride a bike, you need to have an Orp Smart Horn on your handlebar, plain and simple. This tiny device combines both a visual and audible alert that is so necessary to protect yourself from the usual obstacles of pedestrians in a polite manner to the unexpected inattentive driver in a more firm way. This ingenious invention has saved me more than once from potentially hazardous situations I’ve encountered in many miles of cycling. It is thoughtfully designed to protect you while you ride. Having used one for the past two years, I would feel uncomfortable not having my Smart Horn at the ready under my thumb!

Hi Orp Team,

I’d just like to share my thanks for a great product. As a city centre commuter (in Dublin, Ireland) I spent AGES online looking for an effective, detachable bike horn. Eventually, I stumbled on the Orp and I have not been disappointed. I cycle to and from work and everywhere in-between and I have lost count of the times where the Orp has saved me or provided increased safety as I went through town. Its functionality where it flashes while honking means it gets drivers’ attentions but it is also particularly effective on pedestrians walking through traffic (we have a jaywalkng culture in Ireland!).

I also upgraded to get the Remorp (Orp Remote) and that is SO handy, especially as a city-centre commuter. You can warn drivers, pedestrians or fellow cyclists without your hands leaving the handlebars.

The Orp is a great product and one which I would hugely recommend it. Be prepared for fellow cyclists to be jealous! I had to buy my Dad one for Fathers’ Day to placate him!
