Bike theft is a persistent problem in the UK, it was recently reported by the ONS, that there has been an 8% increase in overall theft offences, of which were predominantly driven by a 23% increase in theft from outside a home*. The crime of bike theft is driven by the fact that stealing a bike can be very quick and easy, especially when located outside of a home. The Yale bike lock range is designed to help combat the number of bike thefts in the UK by encouraging people to lock it rather than lose it.
The new Yale Bike Lock product range includes; cable locks, chain locks and U-lock solutions, which have all been designed with the highest bike security in mind.
The new range of U-locks are designed to help protect against any bumps or hits, helping to ensure bicycles are kept looking their best. Additionally, the heavy duty cross-bar of the U-lock provide maximum pull protection making it resistant to cuts and impacts.
Cable locks feature tough coatings on both the cable and swedging, ensuring long lasting durability and protection for users.
Stephen Roberts, Marketing Manager for Yale UK said “Bike theft is an increasing problem in the UK and a problem which we hope to tackle with our new range of bike locks. There are many different reasons for people to use bikes and we hope this new range will encourage more people to get out on their bikes, without the concern of their bike being stolen.
“We’re excited to add this range to our security portfolio. All the high and maximum security bike locks are sold secure approved for added peace of mind.”
Whether people are using their bikes for recreation, daily commute to work or school or just to keep fit and healthy, they can rest assured that Yale’s new security measures will keep them moving forward.
