While we cannot attest to reliability of the ZiiLock Foldable Biometric/Keyless Bike Lock, we are pretty intrigued by what it has bring to the table, both in the looks department as well as the features. The aesthetic is pretty self-explanatory. It is beautiful and minimalistic. But the real meat here is what it has to offer. ZiiLock touts itself as the “world’s first foldable biometric bike guard.”

This mean, instead of a key, it lets you unlock it using your fingerprint. Now, that’s the future of bike lock there. Though you totally can unlock with the good’ol fashion key. But more on that in a jiffy. If you so choose to, you can also unlock ZiiLock with your phone via Bluetooth which, btw, is encrypted by AES 256 military-grade security, or so we read. The circuitry is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery that is good for 3 months use.

In the event the battery conks out while you are using it, there is a physical spare key to the rescue, or you can simple charge it up with a portable via the lock’s USB Type-C interface to get it to unlock.
