Alright, so these bike posts couldn’t come at a better time. Now that it is nice out, it seems like bicycles continue to dominate the majority of the roads downtown. After being introduced to this new bike lock, I was pretty surpised something this efficient and advanced was already on the market.

The Skylock, is a solar powered bike lock that works by using keyless entry. One can simply lock and unlock the Skylock with a simple touch of a button from a smartphone. The lock links up to bluetooth, which also allows you to add friends and family to the same lock. The somewhat traditional styled U-Lock also features an alarm for theft, as well as crash alerts incase anything bad happens to you or your bike. It should also be noted, that if you don’t have your phone with you, one can simple key in a combination using the touch pad to unlock the Skylock. It looks like the ex-designers from Boeing and Jawbone have thought of just about everything for these locks.
