Trigger Bell Benefits

Traditional bike bells make you choose between braking, pinging and controlling your bike. Pinging can mean taking your fingers off your brakes to maintain your grip or moving your thumb which reduces your grip.

Trigger Bell is secured under your handlebar so it lets you brake, ping and control your bike all at the same time. Trigger Bell lets you notify other road users that you’re there without impacting your own safety.

  • BRAKE, PING AND CONTROL

    Ping Trigger Bell without compromising your own safety as there is no need to loosen your grip or to choose between braking and pinging. Pinging your Trigger Bell makes other road users safer as they will know you are approaching.

  • ALWAYS WITHIN EASY REACH

    Trigger Bell’s trigger is always within easy reach of your thumb making it very quick to ping. This means for a cyclist travelling at just 10mph, you can ping your Trigger Bell between 8 and 20 feet sooner than a traditional bell, keeping you and your fellow road users safer.

  • “This looks the best idea yet for a bell on a road bike, i ordered one”, Headset Press
  • “It is as easy and safe to ping as it is to brake or change gear”, I Bike Daily

Fitted Trigger Bells

No gears

Fully supported

Easy to fit.

Rapid Fire Gears

Fully supported

Trigger Bell fits neatly between your thumb gear shifter and your brake.

Drop handlebars with no gears – riding on the drops

Fully supported

Fits snugly at the base of your brake.

Drop handlebars with no gears – riding on the hoods

Fully supported

Fits across the hood rather than around the handlebar grip to make Trigger Bell safe and comfortable to use.

Drops with combined brake / gear

Partially supported

Fits in the same way as on drops with no gears in the majority of cases. Some additional time may be needed during fitting to ensure Trigger Bell is out of the way of brakes and gear lever movements.

Thumb, SIS or top mounted gears

Fully supported

Easy. Same as having no gears.

Trigger gear shifters

Partially supported

Fits upside down on your right handlebar grip. This is because the index finger trigger shifter on your left side sits where Trigger Bell would normally be fitted. Trigger Bell is still easier to reach and safer to use than a traditional bike bell.

Grip shift or twisty gears

Partially supported

Fits between your left handlebar grip and your brake. You’ll need to move your brake slightly before fitting Trigger Bell. Pinging Trigger Bell also requires a bit more of a stretch than if it’s fitted on your grip directly.
