This Bicycle Bell Is Safer and More Comfortable Than Regular Bicycle Bells

Cycling is an incredibly healthy and fun way to get around, but careless drivers and pedestrians can make it a dangerous activity; the Trigger Bell bicycle bell is an invention that should make cycling an easier ride.

The problem with traditional bicycle bells is that it is difficult or impossible to ring them while braking or swerving rapidly. Cyclists regularly find themselves in a situation where they can either squeeze the brakes or ring the bell when they'd rather do both at the same time.

The Trigger Bell sits right under your handlebar and allows you to brake, swerve and ring the bell at the same time without having to shift your hands around the handlebar or take your eyes off the road.

Trigger Bell's inventor came up with the idea after he suffered a bicycle accident caused by his inability to ring his bell and brake at the same time upon encountering a straying pedestrian.

Tests show that the Trigger Bell is highly effective. Cyclists traveling at 10 mph ring the Trigger Bell between 8 and 20 feet sooner than a traditional bell. This means a greater stopping distance and improved safety.
