Prettier, but just as effective

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).
