TL;DR: Keep your bike secure with the Via Velo Premium Bike Lock, on sale for $53.99 — a 9% savings — as of April 22.
The pandemic brought about a big surge in bicycle sales. People were — and still are — searching for socially distanced and greener means of transportation, as well as new ways to get exercise and enjoy nature. It’s great, but you’ll also need a good lock to protect your investment.
In 2020 alone, nearly 100,000 bikes were marked stolen nationwide, and those are just the ones reported. If you’re still riding around without a proper lock, let this be your sign to buy something good — like the Via Velo Premium.
The Via Velo Bike Lock includes both a U-lock to grip the bike’s back wheel and frame as well as a strong steel cable you can snake through the front wheel and frame. U-locks are much harder to cut through than a standard cable, and the steel cable adds an extra layer of protection.
Here’s a look at how to use the Via Velo Premium:
The lock itself is weather-resistant and can stand up to all sorts of external elements, like dust, dirt, heat, rust, water, and more. It also comes with three keys for your convenience — each with an LED light-up function to help you unlock your bike at night. With the Key Guard program, you can even register your keys on the Via Velo website and have them replaced immediately if they’re lost or stolen.
Whether you’re popping into a coffee shop or leaving your bike out overnight, the Via Velo is a solution designed to keep your bike safe. Snag it on sale for $53.99 (regularly $59) for a limited time.
