The standard bike lock is a bulky and utilitarian piece of equipment, but the Linka Leo is unlike a average U-lock. Not only is its fundamental design discrete from the locks that are most commonly used by cyclists of all stripes, but it has smart tech functionality that makes it far more convenient as well.
Electric, remote locks have become standard equipment on cars today, and the Linka Leo brings that functionality to bike riders. The lock itself attaches to the rim above one's rear wheel, and it sits there whether the bike is moving or parked. It has a steel bar that encircles the tire when users opt to park, effectively locking up the bicycle. That locking mechanism can be controlled through one's smartphone app, meaning that users can lock or unlock their bikes from anywhere.
