Popular Australian parts and accessories label Knog looks set to release a ‘levitating’ titanium bike bell to market shortly.
No, it’s not April 1st. A Knog insider told CyclingIndustry.News: “We are days away from launching a revolutionary new bike bell, our high end model being titanium. It is not a dome bell, but “O” shaped, and seemingly levitates round the bar. I’m not the designer so I can boast…it’s VERY cool.”
The firm appears to have quietly crowdfunded some early production on Thunderclap.
Knog’s funding page says: “Coming in 5 styles; aluminium, brass, copper, black chrome and top of the range “treat yourself” titanium, the Oi has been tailored to the individual rider’s personality and the bike they ride.”
Loosely related, CyclingIndustry.News recently undertook a bit of an analysis of the fortunes of titanium bike labels, which you can read here.
