Every day, millions of mountain bike riders head out on the trails to do what they love. And while they’re out there enjoying the experience, they're also likely to encounter other riders, hikers, horses, and wildlife including bears and mountain lions.
Unfortunately, there’s never really been an effective way for riders to pass and audibly communicate their presence to other trail users. until now.
TIMBER is the first bicycle bell designed exclusively for mountain biking. Our goal was simple: awareness when you need it, and silence when you don’t.
If you’re like us, you probably already use one of the following ways of alerting / warning others of your presence, all of them inadequate for their own reason.
We based the design of our mountain bike bell on the iconic cowbell, only updated with a more modern look. A patented on/off lever controls the internal clapper. Slide it down for on, up for off.
The motion of the bike activates the sound. Because the sound is passive, you communicate to other trail users a friendly, "Hey, I'm just letting you know I'm here". The advance notice gives hikers or oncoming riders time to find a safe place to move off the trail.
The bell mounts on your handlebars within easy reach of your hands. Fits all handlebar diameters: from standard 22.2mm all the way to 35mm DH style. Mount it near the stem for occasional use, or closer to the grips for instant shifting between silent and ring mode .
Our quick release model moves easily between bikes, and our bolt-on model is a tighter fixed mount.
