Linka Smart Bike Lock

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Tech

Bikes are stolen on a regular basis. In fact there are over a million reported bike thefts each and every year. LINKA looks to help lower this number, with what they’re calling the world’s first auto-unlocking smart bike lock.

Rather than tether your bike to an existing stationary object, LINKA uses a 9mm hardened square steel ring to immobilize your bike with the push of a button (you can also connect LINKA to a chain or existing U-lock as well). If a potential thief attempts to run off with your bike, there’s a built-in accelerometer that sounds a 100 dB siren along with sending a tamper alert to your phone. The lock wirelessly works with your smartphone, unlocking automatically as you approach your bike. And if you decide not to bring your phone along (or have a dead battery), there’s also the option to use a 4-digit pass code to gain instant access. [Purchase]
