This revolutionary idea was created to solve a number of problems that concern millions of urban riders around the world. Saddle theft, for example, is a major issue. Hundreds of bike saddles are stolen every day - leaving riders no choice but to take their saddles with them. Let alone the burden of carrying the saddle wherever they go, they also need to adjust its position every time they put it back on. Another issue is the fact that most high security locks are bulky, ugly and not really user friendly. In a reality where elegance and comfort are as important, for riders, as security - those locks do not comply with the new spectrum of demands.
The was designed to play a double role - it functions as a seat while riding, and as a lock when parking. being just a seat, while riding, it does not intervene with the natural lines and esthetics of the bike, and actually gives the sensation of riding without a lock. If anything, it gives a stylish touch, since it comes in various models, sizes and colors to suit the bicycle's style and the rider's personal taste. Used as a lock, when parking, the saddle is naturally locked - so saddle theft is out of the question. Operating the transition between those two phases is super easy and intuitive - It usually takes less than 10 seconds. Adjusting the position is only done once, and since the adaptor is fixed to the seat post, it will maintain its exact position time and time again.
