When bikes are tied up outside the office or train station they should be safely secured. Time for a Chilean startup to get involved.

The best thing about their bicycle is that parts of it function simultaneously as a lock. Within a matter of seconds the lower frame bar can be split, folded and secured together with the seat tube.

Meaning the bike can be easily wrapped around streetlights or racks. The frame is a mixture of aluminium, chromium and molybdenum.

The metal parts can be recycled and the rubber wheels reused for road construction.
