Dean Kazura stopped by the bike shop to show me new product that he’s representing for this area. Orp is a USB-rechargeable, handlebar-mounted light with an integrated electronic horn. My first assumption was that this was going to be a super-cheesy product, but I was actually really impressed. The light is bright for its size and price point, the silicon band mount seems a lot more substantial, durable, and secure than Knog, and the horn actually does its job. Nice product for the commuter, but I can certainly think of a few times I’ve been out training in the sticks when a horn might be nice to alert drivers who aren’t used to sharing the roads with cyclists.
Unless I’m mistaken, msrp should be $65, which is quite reasonable. Check out the light at orpland.com.
I just wish it did the horn riff from Lowrider
