Have you ever experienced bike theft? If so, you’re not alone.
According to the Irish Times, Dublin experienced a 46 percent increase in bike theft in 2021. Bike theft is on the rise, leaving many of the public suffering from theft anxiety and refraining from inner-city cycling. As a result, cyclists carry several bike locks to inhibit bike theft.
As a systems minded designer, I create emotionally durable and comprehensive product experiences for people's unmet needs. Here, the unmet need of a cyclist is to travel 'lock-less', giving total convenience and freedom.
'Lock&Go' is a premium locking service that removes the need to carry a bike lock. It offers total convenience for the cycling commuter, in a safe package.
'Lock&Go' compromises of an app and physical bollard, delivered in a compact form suitable for our already saturated city streetscape. The design promotes safe locking, mitigating wheel component theft, providing ultimate security and peace of mind for the user.
