OUR PLAN TO REDEFINE THE FOLDING LOCK
We felt that the bicycle lock market wasn’t getting the attention it deserved and have therefore worked on this accessory which seemed mature for many years.
The lock that's
there when you
need it and isn't
when you don't.
WHAT IS UPLOCK?
Pure zeitgeist: UPLOCK is a folding lock concept completely integrated into your bicycle’s frame, consisting of two components. The UPLOCK seat post with an opening mechanism and the UPLOCK folding lock made of hardened, high-strength tool steel.
The folding lock is concealed practically and simply directly in the specially designed seat post and is therefore always an integral part of the bike. This concept has never existed before. UPLOCK combines traditional technology with innovative ideas and new aesthetics. And we not only meet the desire for individuality and uniqueness - we also guarantee maximum security, the reliability of proven craftsmanship and, at the same time, comfort in everyday life.
This means: one less thing you need to think about.
Always where you need it.
Always part of your bike.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
5 simple steps to UPLOCK your bike:
Open the locking lever
Tilt over the saddle
Insert the key
Pull out the lock and unfold it
Lock up your bike as usual
You do not want your lock attached to your bicycle nor do you want to wrap it around your body while riding. The UPLOCK system provides a simple, safe, and yet invisible way of getting your lock out of the way. No appendage, but always with you.
No cumbersome mounting, no forgetting. Whether racing, city or trekking bikes - UPLOCK is available for common bicycle types and models. Available in the seat post diameters 27.2 mm, 30.9 mm and 31.6 mm. The previous seat post can be easily replaced with UPLOCK and, of course, the existing saddle can still be used. For UPLOCK, we rely on tested materials and use the latest production techniques and craftmanship. The design and geometry of the lock are designed and created in the company's own engineering workshop. UPLOCK is a completely new design using intelligent kinematics that not only offers a secure lock, but also answers the question of where the lock should be stowed – invisible and weatherproof inside the bicycle. All components and materials used come exclusively from Western and Central Europe.
Our plan to redefine the bicycle lock
Bicycles have long been more than just a means of transport. Whether as an alternative to the car, as sports equipment or simply for trips into the countryside. It’s also a clear expression of an attitude to life and thus part of the individual lifestyle. In fact, today there is already a suitable bike for every occasion, every concept of life. Consequently, we started to concentrate on one component that no bike owner can do without - the bicycle lock.
We have thought further and succeeded in improving and making the bicycle lock more comfortable. Exactly like today’s bicycle riders would expect it.
The driving force behind UPLOCK is the love of bicycling. Uli Press, founder and inventor of UPLOCK, lives it every day. Tricycle, folding bike, race bike, city bike, trekking bike or mountain bike - pretty much everything that the bicycle market has to offer has been and will be kicked. With UPLOCK, Uli's vision has become reality for the first time: To design and realize bicycle components that have never existed before. Things that redefine our ideas of aesthetics, look, feel, form and materials. Things that meet our demands in terms of origin, craftsmanship and sustainability.
In short: something fine, something practical, something particularly secure. As an industrial engineer, Uli brings in all his engineering knowledge, his "Outside the box" thinking as well as his wealth of ideas and imagination as a bicycle enthusiast. The logical decision: to develop innovative bicycle locks. The result speaks for itself.
