What is Seatylock?

Seatylock is a patent protected revolutionary product aimed at changing the lives of urban cyclists by providing them with a new level of convenience for secure bicycle locking.

Seatylock is a bicycle saddle that quickly transforms into a one meter solid lock that  enables you to lock your bike to a fixed object. With Seatylock you no longer need to carry a lock or worry about saddle theft. Located in the center of Gravity of your bike the Seatylock gives you a hassle free ride without feeling the burden of carrying a lock. Seatylock is an integral part of your bike, so you’ll never leave home again without a lock. 

Seatylock has a universal adaptor that enables easy compatibility with any standard bicycle. After a simple installation it can be adjusted to your preferred saddle position. 

Seatylock will be launched in two models: Seatylock Trekking & Seatylock Comfort both saddles carefully chosen to fit your preferred riding style and designed for the common & cool urban cyclists. 

Each model comes in a variety of designs, styles and colors. 

The Seatylock will retail around 129$ (saddle type & design dependency).

Seatylock Trekking – The natural choice for riding with great comfort while feeling light and agile. 

Seatylock Comfort - The best choice for highly comfortable riding.

Easy Compatability with Your Bike:

Seatylock installation is as easy as replacing your bike saddle. Each Seatylock comes with a Universal adaptor that enables easy compatibility to any standard bike on the market. The Seatylock adaptor enables the rider to fit the Seatylock to his preferred riding position (Backward or forward & upward or downward). 

Seatylock Saddle replacement

The Seatylock enables the user to change / replace its saddle in case of wear and tear or if you just want to diversify.

The replacement process is simple and can be done by anyone.

 How to Use Seatylock

How it all began.......

Being metropolitans ourselves, we have been using bicycles as our main means of transportation since we were in our teens, which might explain our enthusiasm about all aspects of urban cycling. 

Like any urban cyclists we were always disturbed by the fact that theft has been on the rise for many years. We have seen cyclists dragging around their heavy locks while riding, and in many cases taking their seat post and saddle with them after locking their bike. We were disturbed by bicycle security and all the inconvenience that comes along with it. 

Seatylock evolved from an abstract idea into a clear vision of what we wanted to create. We decided to go for it and realize our idea. Since we all come from totally different disciplines, each of us brings a different perspective in order to create a unified creative vision. 

From the first spark to a Product

In order to bring the Seatylock to our supporters we have established a detailed production plan.

High standards are essential, in order  for Seatylock to become a cutting edge product. 

These standards require an efficient and comprehensive plan that will guarantee quality and elegance. We believe that our detailed production plan will help us make the Seatylock the amazing product we dreamt of. 

We have sourced out some great suppliers (Steel, Aluminum, Plastic, CNC…) ,each is excellent in his field of expertise, so they will help us guarantee that each part will be manufactured with  great care and precision so it all combines to the great product we envisioned.

Like in nature we fully believe that great parts create an extraordinary whole!

We need your support!

Developing the Seatylock was a challenging process. We had lots of technical barriers we had to overcome, and like every entrepreneurial project we had also few financial difficulties, but we are almost there…..

We got amazing feedbacks from anyone we have met during our long journey including lots of potential consumers and potential partners from the industry, but we need your help and last push to finish pay off our tooling and fund our initial purchase order. It will enable us to get to the market.

Production plan:  

September 2014: Kickstarter launch.  

December 2014: Assembling Zero series .

March 2015: Assembling first batch and start deliveries

Risks and challenges

GENERAL
During the development process we have faced some technical difficulties that made us sweat, but we are happy to say that we are over them!!!!!
Most of these issues concerned how to make Seatylock the trustable and strong lock that it is today, without compromising its easy remarkable functionality.
Now we are ready for manufacturing and our most challenging barrier concerns project funding.
We need the money to finish paying for tooling and for our first batch of products.
We still might face some unexpected challenges (like always in life), but we are confident that we overcame the most significant challenges and our determination for the project's success is stronger than ever.
We will be fully transparent and will keep our backers up to date with any development.

SHIPPING DATE
We have taken extra time in consideration for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship on time. In any case, we will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.

PRODUCT
We have taken the following steps to ensure that we deliver the best quality product:
- We have produced over 15 working prototypes and samples.
- We have extensively tested prototypes for performance and durability measures.

MANUFACTURING
We have established relationships with experienced manufacturers to mitigate the risk of delays by material suppliers and to ensure that quality control is implemented to the highest level. We have built test samples with our manufacturers and insured that they fully understand all aspects of our product, especially manufacturing specifications and production timeline.
We are totally confident with the Seatylock!

We hope you will share that confidence with us.

FAQ

  • Sure it fits! Seatylock has a universal adaptor that fits any bicycle on the market.

    Last updated:
  • The Trekking model weighs 1.3 kg. The Comfort weighs 1.4 kg.
    The Seatylock is placed in the center of gravity of your bike so you won't get the feeling of carrying any additional weight while cycling.
    And what's more - your current saddle weighs between 200-600 gr. aprox, and you still need to lug around a heavy, inconvenient lock.
