A revolutionary bicycle lock

A revolutionary bicycle lock created by UK designer Paul Hewitt has attracted the attention of Europe’s largest bicycling manufacturer, Axa-Basta. Hewitt is meeting the company in France this week to discuss licensing and supply in five major European markets. The Recoil Security Steering Lock works by immobilising the bicycle’s steering mechanism, making it impossible to ride. Fitted to the bike’s ‘headset’, the lock disconnects the handlebars from the front wheels when its key is turned. Hewitt won a Millennium Product Award for his earlier design, the Recoil Suspension Seat Post.
