This bell has a switch to activate or silence it. When you switch it on, it will ring continually as your bike rattles along the trail and ensures other trail users, hikers and horse riders are aware of your approach. And when you want to hear only the silence of the trail, you can flick the switch and turn the bell off.
The original mountain bike-specific bell that's designed and engineered, unlike any other bell. It is naturally silent until you drop the switch and release the clapper. Then the familiar sound of a bicycle bell automatically sounds with the motion of the trail. No longer needed? No problem just switch it off again.
What's the point? Tension on shared-used trails between bikers and hikers or horse riders is something we have all experienced. If you care about alerting other trail users and building positive relationships with other trail users, then this bell is for you.
Band-On: Flexibility of mounting location like your stem, 35mm handlebars or any other purpose. The rubber band means switching it from bike-to-bike, is easy! Not ideal for positioning near your brake levers where the handlebar is narrower (22.2mm). You should check out the Bolt-On model for that.
Bolt-On: Now updated with a new, slimmer clamp and lever so it fits into tighter spaces! This is the model you want to position on the narrower part of your handlebars (22.2mm) around your brake levers. It will also fit anywhere on your handlebars (up to 31.8mm) with a 3mm Allen key.
