A legendary test for Kryptonite’s new bicycle locks came in 1972. The Second Avenue Bicycle Shop in New York City locked a three-speed bicycle to a signpost in Greenwich Village under Kryptonite founder Michael Zane’s direction. Although all of the removable parts were immediately stripped by thieves, the bicycle itself remained for thirty days and thirty nights. The Kryptonite lock and the bike frame were still in place, even though the lock had been attacked numerous times. Publicity from this event gave Kryptonite the boost it needed, forever changing the face of bicycle security. Kryptonite stands behind its products, and gives customers an additional peace of mind. Often imitated, never duplicated.
We also love additional versions: The New York Fahgettaboudit Mini and the New-U New York Lock Standard. They have many of Kryptonite's great features in different sizes for different needs.
Many of their locks offer flexibility/fit to maximize the number of places where it is possible to lock a bike; durability with keys that do not break and operate under heavy use; and one-lock solution for security that increases the ability to properly secure a bike without having to carry two locks.
Additionally, Gravity Line (WheelNutz and WheelBoltz) is an innovative wheel security solution that is easily installed and removed without the need for special keys. The Gravity Line harnesses the power of gravity to prevent the removal of wheels. When the bike is upright, the WheelNutz and WheelBoltz are locked and can only be unlocked with the bike turned upside down.
YOUR SAFETY & SECURITY. . . THEIR PRIORITY.
