Saddle Lock

Category: Design Published on 16 Jan, 2013 Tags: , , , ,

Saddle Lock, designed by Lee Sang Hwa, Kim Jin Ho and Yeo Min Gu is the innovative way to quickly lock the rear wheel of a bicycle without the need for additional locking accessories. In complex cities, the number of people using bicycles to travel short distances is increasing. Following the trend, bicycle design has been evolving rapidly. On the contrary, the evolution of the bicycle lock has been slow. When they make a quick stop – such as at a coffee counter or a convenience store – people still look for something to lock their bicycle to. Even though they are only stopping for a few minutes, they must perform quite a number of actions to lock their bike.

The seat post swings down around the main frame when a button is pushed. The saddle features a cut-away shape that allows it to sit over the rear wheel. A combination lock allows the release of a special alloy rotating lock that extends from one end of the saddle to the other, securing its connection to the wheel.

Saddle Lock is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner
