Thi bicycle has been developed by three Chilean engineering students; Juan José Monsalve, Andrés Roi and Cristóbal Cabello. The ‘Yerka‘ project maintains the design of an urban bike yet incorporates a closing frame device to improve security.
To thieves, every lock can be broken whilst leaving the bicycle intact, and the creators have made a strong clamp out of the bike frame. This means that the only way to steal it is to break the lock and thus the bike completely.
This means that owners will no longer have to carry around a lock as the Yerka technology uses the bike’s body as the securing measure, taking less than 20 seconds to set-up.
