Bicycle with integrated technology against theft launched

It has been announced by YERKA Bikes that they have launched an improved new generation of the anti-theft bicycle. With the aim of integrating an innovative safety system directly into the vehicle, the company has developed the patented technology that protects bicycles.

YERKA Bikes are the first bicycles in the world market with a padlock integrated in the same structure. In just a few seconds the frame and the seat post become a hermetic lock adaptable to any structure. The technology is so effective that the model does not need a separate U-Lock to be safe from thieves. Furthermore, the wheels provide additional security thanks to their anti-theft nuts, which use a unique pattern. In other words, to steal a YERKA bicycle, the structure must be so damaged that the bicycle cannot be used and loses its commercial value.

YERKA Bikes aims to offer the best solution urban commuters around the globe. What began as a university project six years ago, as a result of the eagerness of three engineering students to protect not only their hobby, cycling, but also their daily means of transport, today has become innovative technology for bike safety.

Andrés Roi, one of the three Founders of Yerka Bikes explained: "[YERKA Bikes] is the only technology adapted to the real needs of urban cyclists, as it prioritises those elements that really influence the experience of mobility in the city."
