Baobike / Urban Locking System

Baobike
Baobike

Commuters must ensure there is a safe and secure lock facility at their destination. They use a number of locks to ensure maximum security of both the frame and wheels. Baobike can provide this security. Using an RFID membership card, the cyclist can lock their bicycle in Baobike. A locking bar secures both the rear wheel and bike frame through the rear triangle of the bike, while another locking bar secures the front wheel. The geometry of Baobike is designed with a ‘One Size Fits All’ ethos. This ensures that all types of bikes can be secured, from BMXs to Racers etc. It will promote a healthy lifestyle and will appeal to all cyclists.
