Water resistant bike horn

At Loud Bicycle we want to keep people safe from hot deserts to rainy places like Seattle. We designed the Loud Bicycle horn to work through all weather. We've had a prototype survive a ride through tropical storm Arthur but to show you how it handles rough rain we filmed this demonstration. To see the most current progress towards production, see our Kickstarter update page.

Loud Bicycle worldwide orders

This is a really exciting time to be cycling in America, where increasing numbers of people biking are starting to encourage better cycling infrastructure. I hope the Loud Bicycle horn will continue this trend and get the bicycle appreciated as a real vehicle by drivers and policy makers. Below is a map of the world where the horns will be going. Denmark is a notable exception here where the cycling infrastructure makes horns unnecessary.

And in case you were curious, here is the map of America where horns will be going. I’d say that New Hampshire is a notable exception; but I’m not too surprised since people up there since its legal to drive without a seatbelt and people like to ride motorcycles without helmets; so they are probably comfortable without a car horn on their bike.

T1 sample photos

Progress towards production is coming along nicely. Below is a photo of the T1 sample.

This is a photo of our external button which mounts under your thumb on a handlebar.

This is the water resistant connector which lets you remove the button.

For more details on the progress of manufacturing see our Kickstarter update page here.

Samples from the molds

We got samples out of the molds for the horn and button and they were almost perfect. Getting these is a huge step towards production as it is by far the riskiest and most complicated part of the process (once you get past design). You can read more details about how production is going on our Kickstarter update page here.
