Hipsters has long resorted to placing their bike lock in a pant pocket. Yeah, we get it. You’re hip and too cool to carry a backpack or mount your U-Lock to your bike. Talk about impractical if not just straight up uncomfortable. And what happens if you take a dinger? Chances are that the U-Lock will be stuffed up your butt leaving you with a rather uncomfortable feeling.
With the Küat Bottle Lock, hipsters and anyone with a water bottle rack on their bike can carry around a 5-foot 8mm cable, which is long enough to lock up you and your friend’s bike. For any determined bike thief this will hardly prove a challenge, so we suggest using this with a ballsy U-Lock. If anything it’s a great way to secure your rims, seat and whatever goodies you have attached to your fixie.
For added pizazz, Küat has included a small storage area at the bottom of the bottle, large enough to hold your keys, weed pipe or mustache wax. When you’re ready to head home, the cable retracts back into the bottle, which we hope can be accomplished by rotating the top of the device.
The Küat Bottle Lock is available now for $34.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
