You’ve heard about that lake in Scotland. This Lochness is a solid lock which can be easily molded into unusual shapes. Thanks to its pliable, shape-shifting structure, you can secure your bike much more easily to bike racks and any other urban element. The innovative theft-resistant inner core keeps your bike safe, while the silicone exterior won't mark or scratch your bike frame. When riding, Lochness can be quickly fastened around the bike frame, even without locking it. Not only a security tool but also an innovative way to give a personal touch to your bike. Twist and go. Includes one Lochness lock and two keys. Lochness is designed and made in Italy.

Designer Francesco Toselli says, "The idea behind Lochness comes from the observation of the cyclists’ habits, and in particular the frustrating way the locks are attached to the bike when not in use. Usually the locks are inserted into the handlebars, secured under the saddle or fixed with additional supports. I wanted to create a playful and durable bike lock that emphasized the interaction between the cyclist and the object. The technology transfer with the use of an unusual material allows you to freely change the lock shape by giving a bit of magic and simplicity to a very serious object."
