Future Things, Free Pair, Seattle Bike Show...

Hello Orfos Family, 

It’s been a while since our last update, and we thought we’d fill you in on what Orfos has been doing! 

The Last Year 

In the last year, we have been very busy manufacturing, selling, shipping and cycling. We could not be happier with how things have gone and have a very steady stream of sales every day for the Flares. We are still selling online through our webstore (www.orfos.bike) and Amazon Exclusives. We know most of these sales are because of our amazing backers and the word of mouth of our customers. Thanks again for all your support! 

 

Future Secret Things

One great reason to get in on these updates and our mailing list is that we have some VERY exciting things coming up soon with Orfos involving new product releases. You are going to want to get in on the ground floor for this Early Bird Special, so stay tuned. 

Free Pair of Orfos Flares

We are having a drawing for a FREE Pair of Orfos Flares. There are two different ways to enter the drawing, and you can put your name in multiple times.

  1. Sign up for our mailing list by March 11th. You can sign up on our website: www.orfos.bike. There should be a pop-up window or it will be at the bottom of the home page.
  2.  Post/Tag a picture of how incredibly visible the Flares are on your bike. These can be posted on our Facebook timeline, or tagged on Instagram or Twitter. These photographs must be uploaded before March 11th to be entered. Each time you post a new picture showing how visible the Flares are means another entry in the drawing!
  3. Don't have a Flare already? Post on our Facebook timeline or Twitter what you like the most about the Flares or why you'd like to have them as part of your cycling safety equipment

    We will randomly select a winner on March 12th from the entries, and will announce it on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Please see our website blog for a more detailed description of the rules of the contest.

    Seattle Bike Show

    It’s time for the Seattle Bike Show, and we are extremely excited to see everyone again this year. Last year, we had the chance to speak with so many people about the Flares, and we anticipate the same amount of visibility (haha) this year. If you are in the Seattle Area, come by our booth and say hi!

     

    That’s all for now! Hope to see you at the Seattle Bike Show next weekend.

    Safe cycling, 

    Peter Clyde

            We are very excited to tell you all that the Kickstarter orders are complete! Minus a few backers who haven’t filled out their backer information, all Flares have been shipped.

They are on the way!

            We are now working on the orders from our website www.orfos.bike, and will be caught up with those in the middle of next week. We are not letting our foot off the gas until we have completely caught up with all these orders!
