Knog Oi Bike Bell

Prettier, but just as effective

This beauty sounds like an angel playing a glockenspiel.

We didn't think the bike bell needed reinventing. But we’re glad someone did.

Knog, known for its premium bike lights, just launched the Oi, which instead of protruding from your bars like a mushroom, wraps around them like a piece of bar tape. Made of either aluminum or titanium (the more expensive option), the Oi also has a distinct sound. It’s just as loud as your regular bell, but instead of playing one note, it plays a full chord. 

Knog says the bells will fit around almost any cylindrical bars. It's launching it in two sizes and four finishes (for the aluminum option).
