Until NOW there has been no major advance in motorcycle immobilization in over 35 years. The RoadLok mission is to design innovative locking systems for serious riders.
No more locking your motorcycle with a padlock and a reminder cord.....that's for beginners. When serious riders want to lock their bikes the safest and smartest way possible, they use a RoadLoK. Keep reading to find out why thousands of riders trust ROADLOKTM Security Systems.
It has been said that the best ideas are born from necessity. In 2005 the founders watched as a rider began to ride away without removing a disc lock from their rotor - the idea for a better way to lock a motorcycle was born.
Why would a rider put a padlock on a rotor? The idea of preventing a motorcycle from being rolled away is nothing new. Today over 55,000 motorcycles are stolen per year in America alone. Over 72% of those motorcycles are simply rolled away. When it comes to preventing movement of your motorcycle there is no safer and smarter way than with a RoadLoK System. Not only do smart riders use ROADLOKTM, manufacturers like Aprilia and KTM trust our innovative design, as well. Designing safe and secure locks is the philosophy.
The RoadLoK is the first, and only, lock designed to immobilize a motorcycle without any potential for damage if forgotten in the locked position before riding. The concept is simple: the lock is installed on the caliper of the motorcycle and stays there. Because the lock is installed on the caliper, there is no movement when the spring loaded pin is engaged through a rotor hole.
No movement = no damage. Its that simple. Imagine trying to ride your motorcycle with the front brake on. The motorcycle will not move...not even one cm.
You wouldn't put tires on your motorcycle that weren't tested to perform, so why would you put a lock on your rotor that wasn't tested to perform?
When we set out to make the world's best locking system we knew that we were writing the book on testing procedures from scratch. The idea of testing a lock against picking and shock attacks is only a portion of the necessary tests. Our locks are tested for security against pick and drill attacks along with performance interference of the motorcycle braking system, interactions with the rotor surface and environment conditions. Our locks are tested to withstand 200 hours of a saline salt water spray test alone. Try that with any other ordinary disc lock
