Sonic Grip: Bicycle Warning Device Helps Cyclists Be Heard When They Can’t Be Seen

Melbourne, AU – An average of thirty-five cyclists are killed on Australian roads each year, with more than 2,500 seriously injured. Elsewhere the numbers are much higher – 50,000 reported accidents in the US and 17,000 in the UK, with many more going unreported. To solve this problem, SONIC GRIP Ltd launched a Kickstarter campaign on September 25 2018 for their patented electronic warning device that integrates neatly into the handle bar grips on your bicycle.

“Bicycles are silent – so when you share the road or pathways with pedestrians they don’t see you approach from behind,” SONIC GRIP Ltd founder Steve Brkic explained, “Sonic Grips emit 100 decibels of attention-grabbing warning sounds that stops traffic in its tracks – a piercing noise that can be heard over the hustle and bustle of today’s busy modern life.”

Why rely on an ineffective bell that does not alert other road users to your presence? This patented electronic warning device is a modern-day bicycle bell for today’s road users. With Sonic Grips roads and footpaths are safer places for riders, pedestrians and drivers alike.

Sonic Grips fit neatly onto the handle bars of your existing bicycle or scooter – for fast, easy access that puts increased audible “visibility” at your fingertips. Sonic Grips can be fitted to any standard bicycle with design and development for racing bicycles already underway.

Now, the Australian inventor, SONIC GRIP Ltd need funds to produce and distribute this cycling safety essential to a waiting market.

“We have the technology. We have the patent. We have the reason – to make roads and paths safer places for all,” said the team, “Your support of the SONIC GRIP crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter will help cyclists around the world say ‘bye-bye’ to bells and ‘hello’ to safety.”

In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one pair of Sonic Grips for the early bird price of $25 AU (approx. $18 USD), two pairs for $50, and more. Backers can also pledge $90 for a Family Pack containing four pairs of Sonic Grips.
