If you’re a bike lover, or even just own one, you’d know that bike theft is a real threat. It’s impossible for you to leave your bike unattended, be it on busy streets or small parts of town. But carrying around a hefty lock can be a real pain sometimes, and the worst is when you leave your lock at home. Seatylock solves all your problems in one built-in solution.

True to its name, it’s a bike saddle that turns into a secure lock. This project was started by bike enthusiasts themselves, so you know that you are in good hands. It’s an offshoot of their original concept, FoldyLock – a foldable, portable bike lock for which they successfully raised funds on the internet.
This all-in-one saddle has a super simple design. It takes you only about thirty seconds to detach it from the seat and secure it around the bike. It is run on a three-point fixing system, which gives you a secure and comfortable experience. Getting to its safety – yes, we had that concern, too – Seatylock has a special safety mechanism that locks the saddle in place, so there’s no chance of it unlocking out of turn.
Reliable And Durable Construction
Sure, the design is brilliant, but can it perform just as well? Seatylock claims that it has been tested on over 10,000 bikes for wear. The lock portion is made of six hardened steel links of high quality, with a plastic outer-mould to keep it protected. They’ve also taken care of compatibility – the Seatylock can be attached to mountain bikes, e-bikes and of course, your regular city bikes. It comes in a wide range of colours, so you can choose the one best suited for your bike.
