Hexlox turns any existing steel hex bolt, on any bicycle into a security bolt. Protection for saddles, wheels and components is now less than a Hex Tool away. The system not only offers security against theft but fits with the modern and sleek design of the Canyon’s urban and performance oriented bikes.

‘Bike-stripping’

“Developing and launching a new, innovative product is always exciting. Seeing our product in over 150 shops worldwide is even better,” said Ian Berrell, Hexlox Head of R&D. “So called ‘bike-stripping’ is one of the fastest growing problems in the urban cycling space. The problem arises mostly when quick releases are used on the bikes, but also normal hex bolts offers a security risk. Hexlox eliminates this risk and offers a safe, elegant and quick help to this problem. Hexlox works by simply inserting the lock into an already existing hex bolt, on any bike. It elegantly locks itself inside the bolt with a magnet, preventing access with any known thief tools. It can only be removed by using one of the coded keys.”

Smart, easy and secure

“At Canyon, we always strive for new innovations and techniques to build the best bikes and provide the ultimate rider experience. The Hexlox System is a smart, easy and secure way to protect the components of our Urban and Commuter bikes from being stolen,” said Sebastian Wegerle, Canyon’s Product & Brand Manager.
