Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

LocLock is an innovative bike rack for indoors or outdoors, designed by The Bicycle Laboratoryl. The patent and most important innovation is the material combination: the external HDPE skin in various colors and interior filled with UHPC concrete, which makes the rack highly stable yet soft and less likely to scratch a bicycle. Between this materials a film is created to allow them to be recycled separately. Another key factor is that the rack can be installed with the help of a standard bollard installation drill.
