the patent protected product, ‘seatylock‘ transforms its saddle into a solid one meter lock and is fully compatible with any bicycle. this improves the rider’s convenience as no longer do they need to carry a lock or worry about theft. it has been manufactured from top quality materials such as hardened steel links and covered in a plastic coating in order to protect the bicycle frame from thieves and rust. the device is an integral part of your two-wheeler, so it will never be forgotten and works by fixing it to an immoveable object.

benefiting convenience is how the saddle takes no more than 30 seconds to operate and has three fixing points that create a spring effect for maximum comfort in your preferred seat position. the adapter has been tested to work on 10,000 cycles and includes a safety mechanism that prevents accidental release whilst cycling. ‘seatylock’ is available as two different models; trekking and comfort, and is currently seeking funding through its kickstarter campaign.
