Lock8 Smart Bike Lock Surpasses Funding Goal

Posted Dec 2, 2013

Lock8 is a new startup where people are encouraged to share their bikes in the same way that Airbnb users share their apartments, condos, and houses. Lock8 has designed a smart-lock for bikes that can be unlocked with a mobile app.

Lock8 has passed their funding goal on Kickstarter 6 days before the deadline. Kickstarter received well over $80,000. The smart-locks have keyless unlocking that pairs with a smartphone app.

The Lock8 gets installed on a bike and has sensors built-in. The sensors can alert you if someone is trying to steal the bike. If the thief finds a way to steal the bike, the owner can track the bike and set off a remote alarm.

The Lock8’s price is $200.
