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 your bell without compromising your own safety as there is no need to loosen your grip or 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 traveling at just 10mph, you can ping Trigger Bell between 8 and 20 feet sooner than a traditional bell keeping you and your fellow road users safer.

Mounts on the right hand handlebar and above the grip. This is because the index finger trigger shifter sits where Trigger Bell would normally sit. Trigger Bell is still easier to reach than a traditional bike bell.

Trigger Bell can be fitted between the grip and the brake. The brake will need to be moved to make room for Trigger Bell. Trigger Bell doesn’t fit on the grip as the grip is used for changing gears.
