Axa Stenman & Batavus Developed 1st Integrated Frame Lock
Dutch lock & lights producer Axa Stenman developed in cooperation with bike maker Batavus (part of Accell Group) the worlds first frame integrated lock.
Dutch lock & lights producer Axa Stenman developed in cooperation with bike maker Batavus (part of Accell Group) the world’s first frame integrated lock. The new design offers numerous USP’s; one of them being the fact that it saves 25% in weight!
The Axa lock used for integration in the frame is of the in the Netherlands commonly used ring type. It is integrated in the vertical rear frame fork where it is hardly noticeable and the lock no longer affects the design of the bike. Next to that, the frame integrated lock takes the anti-theft characteristics of the bike to the next level as it now united into the bike. Axa calls its frame integrated lock rightfully the Fusion. It can be extended by a plug-in cable.
More news comes from Axa Stenman in the form of the Scope 2 which hooks up to the latest design trends in city & trekking bikes. As these models nowadays come in fashionable colours it offers challenges to bike makers to have components on stock in the latest colours. However, if the colour doesn’t meet the actual demand, over-stock of such components is likely.
Axa Stenman tries to solve such problems with its Scope 2 dress and chain guards. The two components come as basic parts which can be adjusted to the colour of choice by means of an extra strip. This strip can be easily clicked on the dress and chain guards. When fitted they neatly cover the assembly points. The strips can be tailor-made (at low costs) to the design of the bike maker for styling bikes to the specific brand image.
