CANTON, MA/USA (7 June 2000)–US lock manufacturer Kryptonite Corporation has announced a three-year partnership with Pinhead Components, the makers of theft deterrent bicycle components. The agreement calls for Kryptonite to distribute globally Pinhead’s flagship multi-piece Locking Quick Release Set with the Kryptonite brand name.
According to Kryptonite, Pinhead’s Locking Quick Release Set will provide alternative security for the front wheel, rear wheel and saddle of the bicycle. Also, it eliminates the need to remove either the wheels or the saddle when locking. The universal dimensions of the new Locking Quick Release Set fit most bicycles, replacing existing skewers. There are no springs to lose or install improperly, and individually coded keys will come with key registration and replacement services.
Through the agreement with Kryptonite the new Pinhead products will be distributed to over 50 countries worldwide. The Locking Quick Release Set will be available this fall. (JW)
