You know those antiquated locks that are as ineffective at preventing bike theft as they are hard to use? 

Toss ‘em away. The Bitlock smart lock is your bike’s new best friend.

At first, Bitlock looks like any other lock you’d snap onto your bike. But Bitlock is controlled by your smartphone, meaning you never need to deal with lost keys or forgotten combinations ever again.

Sharing is caring, and with Bitlock you can send your bike’s location to family or friends. The product’s locking system uses high-level encryption, so you can rest assured that your bike is safe. And in case your phone dies, you can still unlock your wheels using a backup combination.

Bitlock even helps you track your rides through trip length, duration and calories burned. (Hello, New Year’s resolutions!) Get the Bitlock bike lock for $109 from the Daily Dot store — that’s 21 percent off the normal retail price of $139.
