Well, that's our goal. Currently, there are two types of bicycle bells: the cheap but ugly bells and the well-designed but expensive bells. We at Plyke are proving it's possible to have the best of both worlds. For this, we are reinventing the bicycle bell. Big time.
the new type of bicycle bell
We know. It looks like it's from another world. And it (kinda) is. Bicycle bells typically consist of a lot of different parts, which makes them quite complex on the inside. We decided to go as minimalistic as possible. The Plyke bell consists of a single metal piece with an flexible hammer.
Using its squiggly sound dome, the bell is able to create a distinct alert with a loudness of 85+ dB. For comparison, this is significantly louder than the noise of 4-row avenue at peak traffic. Combined with a high-pitched tone, the bell is sure to stand out.
The Plyke bell is designed to fit the typical city bicycle handlebar standard (22.2 mm diameter by the grips).
The plyke unibody aluminium design makes it easily recyclable, meaning the material can remain in the loop essentially forever.
The first 39 people to purchase a Plyke bell receive it with a special engraving, a number from 1 to 39. By purchasing a first edition Plyke bell, you're enabling us to scale up and make amazing products for everyone. And you get to
P.S. The (amazing) ones who pre-ordered our bell in advance are guaranteed an earlier number upon purchase.
