Fast bikes need loud bells, but not all bells are created equal and after trying several different bells in 2016, the Spurcycle came out on top.
Spurcycle launched its first bike bell back in August 2013 with a Kickstarter campaign. 10,000 bells were produced to fulfill that initial round of Kickstarter orders and rewards, and several production rounds have been completed since then.
Precision made of premium nickel brass and stainless steel, the bell has a distinct dome shape and comes in either a brushed steel or matte DLC (diamond-like coating) black.
With its high quality material and design, Spurcycle got people to buy into the idea that quality and design matters, even for utilitarian items
Why I like it: It’s so much more than the all-too-common expendable noisemakers! The Spurcycle is beautifully designed, and has a long, loud yet polite ring. It’s truly a luxurious item you’re proud to have on your bike.
Price: US$49 / AU$75 / £46
