About

GENTZ - The buzzer exclusive for road bikes

GENTZ is the industry's first buzzer exclusively for road bikes, built into the handlebar end .

It is only 14g, a simple and light model.

A full charge lasts 300 days for 30 seconds of daily usage.

Attached to the inner diameter of the handlebar.

Adopting 4kHz frequency band that is easy to hear.

GENTZ is a buzzer for road bikers around the world.

GENTZ is a simple design that all road bikers can easily use.

It was born after repeating design and design, producing and verifying a prototype.

The color of GENTZ is black so it suits any roadbike.

THE BEGINNING OF GENTZ

GENTZ was developed from the desire to keep the sleek form of road bikes.
   I personally think the beautiful form of a road bike has been preserved with thorough detail while pursuing functionality.
   How can we equip a roadbike with a buzzer without spoiling its beautiful form?
   Finally, I came up with the idea of inserting a buzzer into the drop handlebars.

THE MEANING OF GENTZ

The brand "GENTZ" is named after "GENTLE" and "BUZZER".
   Gentleman comes from the saying; "Be a gentleman if you ride a bike". A gentleman shall keep the rules.
   I think the act itself of safely mounting a GENTZ to your roadbike and consciously following the rules of the road is gentlemanly conduct as well as the fact that GENTZ does not spoil the beauty of road bikes.

Sound of the battery becomes low.

Thank you for your daily support of GENTZ.

I'm Omichi, the engineer responsible for the development of the buzzer for road bikes.

I myself have loved road bikes for about 10 years as a hobby as well as a commute option. This among other things motivated me to develop this product for all road bike lovers.

In Japan, it is required by law to equip your roadbike with a buzzer, however, I think that few people have a buzzer on their road bikes.

I think that is the same not only in Japan but in the world.
  It may be because that there weren’t any inconspicuous buzzers available to match the beauty of expensive road bikes.
  Recently, we could find some buzzers suitable for road bikes. As a competing product, I hope "GENTZ" is used by many people and becomes a tool that improves the safe environment of road bike riders and pedestrians around them.

Risks and challenges

We have completed the product development, and submitted our design to all significant quality and performance tests through numerous prototypes.
I know that you will smile when GENTZ reaches you.
