What about its resilience? Tex—lock is a textile-based lock, which is as secure as steel. We developed texlock to protect your beloved bike, accessories, and outdoor equipment against theft.

Wie steht es um die Festigkeit? Tex—lock ist ein textil-basiertes Schloss, mit der gleichen Sicherheit wie Stahl. Wir haben tex—lock entwickelt, um dein geliebtes Fahrrad, Zubehör und Outdoor-Equipment gegen Diebstahl zu schützen.

A test using a bolt cutter demonstrates the resilience of the rope. While common steel products give up fast, tex-lock withstands the attack. Even the use of ice-spray doesn’t help the potential thief. The colder it gets, the higher the cutting resistance of the fibers becomes.

Am Beispiel des Bolzenschneiders lässt sich die Hartnäckigkeit des Seils gut zeigen. Während gängige Stahlprodukte schnell brechen, lässt sich das tex—lock nur schwer bezwingen. Auch der Einsatz von Eisspray bringt den Dieb nicht voran. Bei Minusgraden erhöht sich der Widerstand der Fasern noch.

 Tensile Strength Test
 
Zugkraft im Test

Modern leisure equipment continues to evolve into lighter and higher quality variations. Necessary anti-theft devices are continually produced with steel. Most bike locks are rigid, cumbersome and heavy.

Modernes Freizeitequipment wird immer leichter und leistungsstärker. Die nötige Diebstahlsicherung dafür besteht nach wie vor aus Stahl. Die meisten Fahrradschlösser sind starr, unhandlich und schwer.

Weight comparison of steel chain / steel cable / tex—lock rope

The rope itself weights no more than 350 g per meter. Plus eyelets and padlock, we are well below 1kg. See the comparison of common materials - steel cable and chain.

Das Seil wiegt weniger als 350 Gramm pro Meter, mit Ösen und Vorhängeschloss sind es weit unter einem Kilo. Seht hier den Vergleich zu gängigen Stahlprodukten wie Kette oder Stahlseil.

 

 

The rope offers a completely new look, touch & feel. It is very comfortable to handle and flexible enough to fit easily into your pocket, bag or cycling jersey.

Das Seil verleiht dem Schloss eine ganz eigene Haptik und Ästhetik - es liegt gut in der Hand. Steck es einfach in deine Jacken-, Hand- oder Trikottasche!

 

 

It prevents scratches and rattling due to its gentle construction.

Durch seinen weichen Aufbau verhindert es jedes Kratzen oder Rasseln.

As an early supporter you have the unique opportunity to help co-create the product. Choose from the different product variants which offer a variety of colors, lengths and eyelet shapes.

Als Unterstützer der ersten Stunde hast du die einmalige Möglichkeit, zwischen verschiedenen Längen, Ösen und Farben zu wählen.

You can choose from these colors as soon as the campaign is successfully funded.

Aus diesen Farben kannst du wählen, sobald die Kampagne erfolgreich finanziert wurde.



 The saddle mount

The saddle bracket fits the tex-lock perfectly and secures it firmly to the bike. It snaps easily into place through the magnet and can just as easily be removed again. The adapter fits all standard seat rails.

Die Sattelhalterung ist perfekt geeignet, um dein tex—lock sicher unter dem Sattel zu fixieren. Wie von selbst rastet der Magnet ein und ist mit einem Handgriff wieder zu lösen. Der Adapter lässt sich einfach an alle Standard-Sattelschienen montieren.

The lock


The locks are offered with these high quality & high security locks. For small eyelets, the compact padlock fits very well. For the longer variants and bigger eyelets, the mini U-lock is the right fellow.

Die Schlösser haben eine hohe Qualität und Sicherheit. Für die kleine Variante passt das kompakte Vorhängeschloss perfekt. Für die längeren Varianten ist das kleine Bügelschloss der richtige Begleiter.

Every tex—lock features a water & dirt repellant outer layer that also adds color or patterns. The patented multilayer construction has been developed over the last 2,5 years. Each layer is made of different high-tech fibre material and each material adds its own special property, like resistence to fire, cutting or striking.

Jedes tex—lock hat eine schmutz- & wasserabweisende Deckschicht. Diese trägt auch die Farbe oder Musterung. Darunter befinden sich Lagen aus verschiedenen Materialien. Jeder Layer übernimmt eine Funktion, um verschiedenste Angriffe abzuhalten.

applications

 

We developed tex–lock to protect your beloved bike, accessories and outdoor equipment against theft. How about taking the lock off your bike and bring it with you to secure your water sport or other heavy equipment? We are planning additional variants for outdoor activities, boats and industrial applications with various security levels and locking mechanisms. Tex-lock opens up a multitude of possibilities.

Wie wäre es, das Schloss vom Fahrrad zu lösen und aufs Wasser zu bringen oder an Maschinen? Wir planen weitere Produktvarianten für Outdoor, Boote und Industrie mit verschiedenen Sicherheitsstufen und Verschlüssen. Tex-lock eröffnet unzählige Anwendungsmöglichkeiten.

 smart

In the future, tex-lock will become smart. During the production process we are able to braid conductive fibers into the rope, opening the door to smart functions like alarms or motion sensors.

Im Zuge weiterer Entwicklungen wird das tex—lock intelligent. Im Herstellungprozess können leitende Garne in deas Seil eingeflochten werden. So lassen sich smarte Funktionen integrieren, z.B. ein Sensor, der beim Zerstörungsversuch laut Alarm schlägt oder ein Bewegungssensor.

Risks and challenges

_________________________english_______________________________
Tex-lock is a prototype offering mature design and function. The large-scale production presents us as the developer with the challenge of ensuring a smooth and efficient manufacturing process. Our stringent requirements concerning all components guarantees the highest quality. To ensure this, we cooperate with professional and reliable German manufacturers. We purchase our materials from within Europe, which are usually available within a few weeks.
Nevertheless, technical or temporal delays may occur. Due to our competent partners, suppliers and logistics, we are convinced to fulfill the prerequisites to deliver the tex-lock to all our backers on schedule. If temporal delays occur in the course of the production, we will do our best to compensate for these in a timely manner without any loss of quality. As a backer you will be kept informed. We are delighted you decided to support us.
___________________________german______________________________
Das tex—lock ist ein Prototyp, der in Design und Funktion ausgereift ist. Eine Produktion im großen Maßstab stellt uns als Entwicklerinnen vor die Herausforderung, den Produktionsablauf flüssig und effizient zu gestalten. Wir stellen höchste Anforderungen an die Qualität aller Bauteile. Um das zu gewährleisten, arbeiten wir mit professionellen und zuverlässigen Produzenten aus Deutschland zusammen. Die Materialien beziehen wir innerhalb Europas, wodurch diese in der Regel innerhalb weniger Wochen lieferbar sind.
Trotzdem ist es möglich, dass es an manchen Stellen zu technischen oder zeitlichen Verzögerungen kommt. Dank unserer kompetenten Partner, Lieferanten und Logistikpartner sind wir aber überzeugt, die besten Voraussetzungen mitzubringen, um das tex—lock planmäßig an alle unsere UnterstützerInnen auszuliefern. Kommt es während der Produktion und Lieferung zu zeitlichen Verzögerungen werden wir unser Bestes tun, diese zügig und ohne Einbußen hinsichtlich der Qualität auszugleichen. Als UnterstützerIn wirst Du von uns kontinuierlich auf dem Laufenden gehalten. Wir freuen uns, dass Du diesen Weg mit uns gehst!
