The ORP Smart Horn Teaser

We recently got tipped off about the pending arrival date of the ORP, which is the first bicycle light to offer an integrated horn with a handlebar-mounted headlight. It’s got a loud, but fairly pleasant sounding horn for the “on your left” moments, and then a much louder, and somewhat annoying “hey, I’m riding here!” horn for getting the attention of motorists about to left hook you. Intrigued? We were. And so we asked nicely for a sample, and were promised one in early 2014. Until we get one for review, here’s the scoop:

The ORP is first bicycle light to integrate sound. Not just ordinary sound, but patented SmartHorn™Technology, where a rider can alert cars, pedestrians, runners and other cyclists to their presence with a simple push on the light’s tail–another patented technology which is unique to ORP.

Designed by Toren Orzeck. Here’s the story, from inspiration to completed design.
