Welcome to Grouphunt    Learn how it works!
Please note this is a Crowdfunding Hunt. While Grouphunt does not guarantee the promises as advertised by the creator, what we promise is to redistribute the goods to you as soon as we receive them, similar to if you placed the pledge on your own.

Tex—lock is an innovative textile-based lock, composed of high-tech materials, making it secure, flexible and lightweight.

 

What about its resilience? Tex—lock is a textile-based lock, which is as secure as steel. We developed texlock to protect your beloved bike, accessories, and outdoor equipment against theft.

A test using a bolt cutter demonstrates the resilience of the rope. While common steel products give up fast, tex-lock withstands the attack. Even the use of ice-spray doesn’t help the potential thief. The colder it gets, the higher the cutting resistance of the fibers becomes.

 

Modern leisure equipment continues to evolve into lighter and higher quality variations. Necessary anti-theft devices are continually produced with steel. Most bike locks are rigid, cumbersome and heavy.


 
Weight comparison of steel chain / steel cable / tex—lock rope

The rope itself weights no more than 350 g per meter. Plus eyelets and padlock, we are well below 1kg. See the comparison of common materials - steel cable and chain.

 

 

The rope offers a completely new look, touch & feel. It is very comfortable to handle and flexible enough to fit easily into your pocket, bag or cycling jersey.

 

 

 

It prevents scratches and rattling due to its gentle construction.

grey/black, black/gold, neon salmon, black


You can choose from these colors as soon as the campaign is successfully funded



 The saddle mount

The saddle bracket fits the tex-lock perfectly and secures it firmly to the bike. It snaps easily into place through the magnet and can just as easily be removed again. The adapter fits all standard seat rails.

The lock


The locks are offered with these high quality & high security locks. For small eyelets, the compact padlock fits very well. For the longer variants and bigger eyelets, the mini U-lock is the right fellow.

Every tex—lock features a water & dirt repellant outer layer that also adds color or patterns. The patented multilayer construction has been developed over the last 2,5 years. Each layer is made of different high-tech fibre material and each material adds its own special property, like resistence to fire, cutting or striking.

applications

 

We developed tex–lock to protect your beloved bike, accessories and outdoor equipment against theft. How about taking the lock off your bike and bring it with you to secure your water sport or other heavy equipment? We are planning additional variants for outdoor activities, boats and industrial applications with various security levels and locking mechanisms. Tex-lock opens up a multitude of possibilities.

 smart

In the future, tex-lock will become smart. During the production process we are able to braid conductive fibers into the rope, opening the door to smart functions like alarms or motion sensors.
