A new type of bicycle bell called the Trigger Bell has this week launched on the Kickstarter crowd funding website, that has been designed to provide cyclists with a safer and easier to use bike bell.
The Trigger Bell has been designed by Stefan Buxton based in London and allows you to quickly warn other road users of your approach, and more importantly maintain complete control of your bike and keep your eyes on the road.
The design of the innovative Trigger Bell allows it to sit underneath your handle grip and enables you to ring it even when you are braking, turning and changing gear. Watch the video below to learn more about this simple yet useful addition to your bike.
Stefan Buxton explains a little more about the inspiration and design behind his new bike accessory.
“Trigger Bell came to life after I had an accident with a car when I had to swerve my bike to avoid a pedestrian who had stepped into the road without looking. This may have been prevented had I been able to ring my bike bell safely to alert the errant pedestrian. I strongly believe that with the right kind of warning system in place such accidents can be avoided.
Loosening your grip for even a split second can dramatically reduce your ability to react, maneuver and brake safely. I designed Trigger Bell to solve this issue. The patent pending Trigger Bell is discretely secured under your handlebar. The ergonomic trigger sits near to your thumb while you’re gripping your handlebars making it as easy and safe to use as it is to brake or change gear. I hope you will join the mission to make cycling safer!”
