Linka Smart Bike Lock

Linka Smart Bike Lock is simple

Seems like new start-ups are really getting on the bike lock bandwagon, although the Linka Smart Bike Lock is something a little different…a little better. According to Linka, most stolen bikes are simply ridden away, but with the Linka, the device locks the wheel to the frame so that the bike can’t be ridden at all!

Linka Smart Bike Lock is mounted permanently on bike

Linka Smart Bike Lock Mounts Permanently

The Linka Smart Bike lock is mounted permanently to the bike frame, and it automatically unlocks, sliding its steel bar back to allow free wheel movement. It works via a smartphone app as well. When you stop, you pull up the app and go through a simple procedure to lock it. When you get back, the lock will sense your phone and unlock for you. Pretty cool, huh?

Other Linka Security Features

There’s also a variety of other security features on the Linka Smart Bike Lock as well. For instance,  a siren can sound off if the lock senses that your bike is being tampered with, or you can receive silent tamper alerts on your phone to warn of suspicious activity. There’s an accompanying theft indicator map that shows the safety levels of nearby neighborhoods, and if you don’t have your phone on you or the battery is dead, you can unlock the Linka via a passcode button sequence.

 

Availability

As mentioned, there are a lot of bike locks coming out on the market, but the Linka Smart Bike lock is a bit different, and it’s concept seems to be a lot more effective than the traditional way of locking a bike. Additionally, the app really lends to some convenience and ingenuity. The Linka starts at $99, which is cheaper than most other smart locks out there.
