What is the purpose of the bell?This crisp and typically Swiss sounding bell is attached to the handlebar or stem of a bicycle or mountain bike with a specially designed strap and will not cause any scratches. It is a great way for cyclists to alert hikers of their presence even from a long way off.
What is the purpose of the magnet?If there are no hikers on the trail, the bell can quickly and easily be «silenced» with the sewn-in block magnet 10 x 10 x 5 mm.
For a positive bike rider imageHikers usually react positively and often very surprised, since they don’t associate the sound with mountain bikes. And if the rider utters a friendly “baa…” in passing, a positive reaction by the hiking folks is almost guaranteed. The path has been cleared, and a contribution was made to convey a positive image of bike riders.
