This Theft-Proof Bike’s Frame Transforms into a Lock
This is the Yerka, an innovative theft-proof bike that is made with a frame that transforms into a hefty 17cm diameter lock! So, you don’t have to be weighed down by carrying a heavy portable lock in your backpack! The Yerka is lighter than a traditional bike that weighs from 12.9kgs versus 19kgs – factoring both bike and lock. Plus, you can feel secure that no one will snatch your wheels when you’re out and about!
The Yerka’s impressive patented anti-theft technology not only nails time efficiency but also compatibility. You can lock the Yerka to any structure – from bike racks to poles, fences, or any structure that’s up to 7 inches wide. Once the Yerka is secured to a structure, it cannot be dismantled without its key. Yet when the system is unlocked, the bike can be disassembled for servicing.
So how fool-proof is the Yerka really? Considering that the Yerka’s frame acts as its own lock, breaking the lock equates to breaking the bike itself. So that would be silly of the thief to do so. What if the thief is determined and breaks the structure, post, or fence? The sorry fella wouldn’t be able to pedal as the lock system also locks the cranks! The Yerka also has anti-theft nuts that have a distinctive pattern, which requires a special adapter (included) to disassemble them.
In addition to security, safety is also a key factor of the bike’s design, which includes reflective striped tires. It also comes in attractive attention-grabbing colors, including turquoise, black, white, and gold. Plus, it fits multiple accessory holders, such as a baby seat or a grill, etc. As for shifting, the Yerka model with gears incorporates sealed gears inside the hub. Therefore, less service is required and it offers more reliability because you can shift without pedaling.
Sustainability is another key factor in the construction and packaging of the Yerka, which 95% of it is recyclable. Made of steel, aluminum, and rubber, once the Yerka has reached the end of the road – literally, its metal components can be melted down and reused in new products.
