Protection against theft
WHEELGUARD & SAFERING | PROTECT permanently YOUR SADDLE AND YOUR WHEELS against theft
With nearly 3 million bicycles stolen every year in Europe – or 350 bicycles per hour – cyclists find themselves doubly penalized. In addition to economic damage, it is such a waste of time. After a theft the cyclist hesitates to reinvest in a quality bike or prioritizes on a second-hand equipment. The cycle industry is also affected, particularly regarding the sale of urban bicycles.
Traditional locks (U-lock or Lock-chain), even high-end, are not very effective to protect the bike and totally unsuitable to protect the saddle and the wheels. Multiplying them is neither realistic (weight and clutter) nor effective especially for the saddle. IXOW’s Safety Strategy goes against the usual anti-theft approach.
Rather than reinforcing the resistance of anti-theft devices, our approach is to dissuade the thief from stealing your bike by installing permanent and specific anti-theft devices to effectively protect the saddle and wheels. Our bike security devices, Safering (saddle), and Wheelguard (wheel locks), are now available. Stemlock, an antitheft integrated into the stem of the bike, will be available spring 2017.
safering | seatpost lock
SAFERING is an innovative, extremely effective and permanent seatpost lock. This clamp, secured to the frame by an anti-theft screw, protects both the seat post and the seat.
SAFERING is particularly suitable for bicycles intended for urban use or regularly left outdoors.
With its finishing and its color range SAFERING fits perfectly to all urban or sports bikes.
Cyclists will no longer have to take their saddle with them to keep it out of reach of thieves.
SAFERING is available in 2 versions of protection of the seat post :
Safering Keycode : Without the associated coded key, it is impossible to loosen the screw, regardless of the position of the bicycle. (Coded key with 40 different fingerprints).
Safering Gravity : Inovating and efficient. The seatpost collar is secured to the frame with an anti-theft bolt that incorporates a patented gravity mechanism that can not be unscrewed if the bicycle is in place (on its wheels). In other words, if the bicycle is locked to a fixed point, the thief will not be able to return it. The seatpost and saddle are safe from thieves.

Storage & Transport
STEMPARK | SAVE EXTRA SPACE WITH A CLICK
Cycling is the most widely used mode of transportation in the world. The are an estimated 1 billion bikes in the world. Every day, an additional 200,000 people settle in in the cities. By 2050, we will be 6 billion living in an urban environment. Sharing space is a priority issue. This is why IXOW has designed STEMPARK, the first stem for storing and transporting the bike with an integrated positionning mechanism. An innovation that changes the game: in the same space, twice as many bikes can be stored very easily.
With one easy movement, in 2 seconds, STEMPARK reduces the bike’s width by 50 centimeters. STEMPARK makes life much easier for cyclists. Storing your bike in a corridor, a cellar, a balcony or transporting it in your car, on the train becomes a child’s play. STEMPARK makes life easier for bike rental companies and points of sale. Manipulating the bicycles, valorising them in the point of sale is easily done.
STEMPARK improves the logistics for bicycle manufacturers and reduces the ecological footprint. STEMPARK simplifies the everyday life and offers an brand-new user experience. The first generation of STEMPARK is available and gives access to the IXOW FORWARD CYCLIST program. Contact us to be included in the program.
