Trompette

TO BE HEARD… ESPECIALLY FROM CARS AND TRUCKS

All bikes are equipped with a bell as standard (legal minimum), experience shows that it is hardly audible to pedestrians. As for motorists, they do not perceive a decibel.

It is therefore totally useless.

However, making oneself heard is necessary for everyone's safety.

In order to be heard by pedestrians and cyclists, we opted for a real bell with a clear, high-pitched timbre… unfortunately found only by chance during a hike to a shop in Germany.

And to be heard from motor vehicles we opted for the only real horn and even VERY loud (115dB !!!) : AIRZOUND 3 (Canadian product)

This device consists of:

  • a very compact mini-trompe which integrates the compressed air filling valve and the control lever.
  • a compressed air tank (the size of a water canister) connected to the horn by a thin, long hose.

To enforce your rights of way, without risking your life, especially in roundabouts, this buzzer is absolutely irreplaceable.
