The 'Shoka Bell' is a cycling accessory that not only allows consumers to alert others of their presence, but keeps track of routes and cycling habits and functions as an anti-theft alarm as well.

With the Shoka Bell, consumers can choose between a number of different alerts through an app -- with a total of 8 tones available. In addition, the cycling accessory is twice as loud as standard bells and its volume is automatically adjusted depending on the environment, ensuring that the device isn't too loud while passing by pedestrians in a quiet park or too quite when trying to get the attention of drivers on a busy street.

The Shoka Bell comes equipped with Bluetooth technology as well, allowing the devices to find the safest and most efficient routes for cyclists and providing real-time updates concerning traffic.
