Integrated Bike Lock / Product Design

Integrated Bike Lock
Integrated Bike Lock

The Integrated Bike Lock System features a steel cable lock built into a winding mechanism within the main down tube of the bicycle. This cable can be wound through both wheels, bike rack and lock securely to the frame. The cable retracts into the tube when not in use. The steel cable is also surrounded by an alarm wire which will trigger if there is an attempt to cut the cable. An embedded GPS tracker in the down tube provides real-time location updates to your smartphone. The bike will alarm and send an urgent warning to your smartphone if GPS coordinates change or cable lock is cut.
