About

Welcome to VIVID LOCK!

Vivid Lock is the world's first wearable bike lock with front & rear LED lights, designed to increase rider safety and security.

The concept, design and creation of Vivid Lock was driven primarily by a passion and love of cycling, with a desire to take the safety and security of the cyclist to a new level without complication; along with the need to travel light. With an understanding of what a cyclist needs during travel, Vivid Lock has aimed to be as simplistic as it can without the compromise of safety and security, to ensure you always arrive at your destination safely and prepared.

Vivid Lock uses a customisable 4 digit combination lock. The lock is designed to increase strength and security as well as be compact and comfortable to wear. Vivid Lock has 2 fibre core steel cables integrated in to the padded strap.

Vivid Lock allows the user to secure their bike in a variety of ways. 

The light modes are changed with the mini controller. It is protected under a clear water resistant PVC strip. The controller is attached to the LED strip and cannot be removed from the strap.

Vivid Lock is constructed using water resistant 1000D nylon, clear PVC and water proof LED strips to ensure it can withstand the harshest cycling conditions.

 Batteries can be changed using a small Phillips head screw driver.

 Vivid Lock offers protection against thieves with a range of tools. The video demonstrates the strength of the two 6mm steel cables with fiber core and PVC coating.

 Vivid Lock allows you to carry less and do more.

By being worn on the upper body, Vivid Lock improves the visibility to all road users. 

Vivid Lock is currently looking at producing 4 colours to suit a range of cyclist and styles. 
Each Vivid Lock is fitted with both white front and red rear LEDs.

Risks and challenges

Risks:
Material availability
There is always a chance that customs may hold products due to routine checks or other unforeseeable circumstances. We understand this may cause minor delays to the delivery of some products. We will endeavour to keep all of our backers well informed if we face any hiccups along the way.

Challenges:
Prior to our launch on Kickstarter we have done our best without funding to get to where we are. We have aimed to complete our design in all major areas to ensure once we finish our campaign we are able to go into production asap to ensure we meet our timeline and goals. However, like all projects, the domino effect of delays and time is always a concern. We have allocated time for refinement within our timeline and allowed for multiple sample runs to ensure our product meets our criteria assessment sheet to ensure we fulfil our project requirements.
