This biometric lock was designed for urban cyclists who no longer want to struggle with reaching around and fidgeting to open their combination or key locks. The 'Grasp Lock' has an incredible finger recognition design that simply needs users to place a thumb on the ergonomically placed screen to open the joint and slide the lock over a frame or wheel.

The smart design is also extremely durable with the toughest steel tested against different tools used by bike thieves like saws and heavy-duty clippers. Though the inner material is tough, the outside is made of soft plastic so that it doesn't leave any scratches to the bike.

Finally, the biometric lock is connected to an app that allows users to input others' fingerprints as well in case they want to share their bicycle with someone else.
