Description

Bike bells generally look & sound a bit ugly. But why? What if they looked sexy & sounded like an angel playing a glockenspiel? A bell with a beautiful tone, but also a remarkable style and choice of materials that embodies a rider’s personality. We wanted to embrace a variety of riding genres, without compromising any.

The Small Oi fits 22.2mm bars e.g Mountain bike (near the grips), BMX & some old commuters.
The Large Oi fits 23.8 to 31.8mm bars e.g. drop bar road bikes and some cruiser / commuters.

 

SPECIFICATIONS

FEATURES

The Oi bell's shape originates from its home - the handle bar. Our design team explored hundreds of iterations in designing the style. Then tested and prototyped different widths, depths, materials, curvature, actuators, springs and more to get to the optimum design.

THE LOOK

Where bells usually protrude up or out, Oi doesn’t. It appears to hover around the handle bars. In one sense, it's discreet. But in another, it stands out as unrecognisable.

THE MOUNT

What about the handle-bar cables? No worries. Built into the shape of the mount is a cable management system. So not only does it allow the bell to look and sound uninterrupted, it also helps gather your cables (for the organiser inside us all).

What about getting it on the bar. Again, not a thing. Just pop it over, give the hex screw a quick tighten up, and you're good to go. No sliding down the handlebars, no dismantling and re-assembling.

THE Oi

There are four styles: aluminium, brass, copper, and black.

We all have some sort of mental image of a bike bell - round, dome shaped metal thingies strapped on to the handlebar. No matter how you look at it, its never been as streamlined or sleek as your ride making you cast doubts on mounting one and resorting to your voice to make way on the streets. Enter the Knog "Oi", the looker with a voice to match.
