About

THE AIRLOCK IS BOTH A PUMP AND A LOCK FOR YOUR BIKE

The AirLock is the world's first all-in-one bike pump and lock. The AirLock is an industrial-strength steel cable lock with a twist — the lock includes a hand pump. Now there's no need to carry a separate pump on your ride.

 The AirLock's design allows you to lock your ride like a traditional cable lock. And AirLock's innovative design allows you to pump your tire using the same device because the locking bolt is also the pumping cylinder. 

 Edellocks will offer both Schrader and Presta valve versions of its Airlock. The Airlock’s simple innovative design is easy to use by cyclists of all ages. Now there's no need to carry around two devices instead of just one.  

THE AIRLOCK ADDS SECURITY & ALLOWS YOU TO STAND WHEN PUMPING

The U.S. Patent Office has already awarded multiple patents to AirLock's novel features. 

 With the Airlock, you won’t need to kneel down and struggle with a small pump. Its long cable allows you to stand and pump your tire. And the Airlock's lightweight and durable design will allow you to focus on your ride - not what's in your bag.

 Like traditional cable locks, the AirLock includes a braided steel cable that wraps around your frame. For added safety, the AirLock's braided steel cable is thicker than those used by Kryptonite, Master Lock, and others. The AirLock comes with a 30" cable that is long enough to get the job done, yet easy to store and carry.

 Love the robust security of a U-lock? The AirLock is a great for securing your front tire.

 WHAT'S INCLUDED IN EACH AIRLOCK REWARD 

Each AirLock reward includes one AirLock with a 30" cable and a set of keys. Backers can choose an AirLock for Schrader valves or an AirLock for Presta valves.

SPECS + MATERIALS

The AirLock includes a 3.5" aluminum pump and steel locking components. It also includes durable vinyl tubing with a 6/16" diameter enclosing a 1/4" steel cable. The initial offering uses black ABS plastic for a tough, sleek look.  

MANUFACTURING

We created 20+ prototypes over the last three years of development. As such, we're confident in the final design that we now have pushed to production. Edellocks has partnered with experienced bike pump and lock manufacturers in Taichung, Taiwan - the epicenter of bicycle equipment manufacturing.

Risks and challenges

Started by Georgia Tech, UGA, and GWU graduates, Edellocks has years of design and manufacturing experience. We have spent the last three years developing and improving the AirLock. Now, we're ready to move on to tooling, which includes creating all the molds, fixtures, and processes needed for mass production.

Once our campaign is completed and funded, we're ready to go straight into production with our manufacturer. We'll keep our backers updated throughout the process of the campaign and production to ensure that we deliver the AirLock on schedule.

As with manufacturing any product, life can throw you a curveball (or two). We’ve padded our schedule to accommodate some curveballs, and will let our backers know immediately of any updates to the delivery timeline.
