Bicycle Whistle / Bicycle Alarm Bell

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The Bicycle Whistle is specifically designed for cyclists. It has the function of an alarm. When pressing the airbag, air is pushed out creating a whistling sound. The whistle can also be blown by mouth when necessary.

Professional cycle couriers often have a whistle permanently in their mouth to alert other road users. To deliver this immediate whistle alert function in this new way (whilst enabling the existing method to still be used) may likely have immediate - and perhaps broader appeal to city bike riders. Hard model testing and clear design communication further adds value to this project.
