while bicycle may not have an ignition to warrant the need to go keyless, it does, however, requires a lock that often need a key. so since keyless is kind of the in thing these days, it is a matter of bicycle lock goes keyless and the BitLock you see here, is the first to stake the claim as the world’s first keyless bike lock. how it works is no surprise: get within the proximity of this otherwise regular looking U-lock and it goes into the unlock mode where at a press of the button, lets you unlock the U-lock (walk away 3 feet and beyond, the lock arms itself). alternatively, you can also unlock the bike through a dedicated app. speaking of app, it is where this innovative bike lock gets innovative. riding on your smartphone’s GPS capability, the app also logs in where you park the bike whenever you uses the lock, so you will never forget where you park your bike.

apart from that, it also keeps track of your cycling distance, keeping tab on the calories you have burnt in the process and tells you how much you save on CO2 emission. but the star feature of the product is probably the low-entry bike sharing concept where multiple users can be signed to one BitLock, turning one bike with one BitLock into a shared bike. registered users can check on the map for the location of the bike and send the request to borrow the bike, and you pretty much got yourself a CO2-free transport. park the bike somewhere, someone can just take over and so on and so forth. the lock itself is made of cut-resistant steel and is of course, water resistant and it has a battery that is said to last for up to five years. an alert will send to your phone when it is time to replace the battery, so that you won’t be caught with a locked bike.
