Built on the familiar u-lock cyclists carry with them daily, the Ellipse (formerly known as Skylock) offers the most robust mechanical lock available with cutting edge connective technology to bring cycling into the 21st century.

Ellipse is a one of a kind connected device that is based on a proprietary dual locking design making it twice as secure as a traditional u-lock.

In addition to robust mechanics, a theft alert system sends a message to your phone when someone touches your lock for an extended period.

Using Bluetooth Low-Energy and an accelerometer, Ellipse pairs itself with a smartphone to be contextually aware. Through this connectivity Ellipse can keep cyclists safer by comparing accelerometer data from a smartphone to its own and determine when a rider has been in an accident. In the event of a severe impact Ellipse will send a push notification to see if the rider is ok. If they fail to acknowledge the notification within a set number of seconds, Ellipse will automatically determine that the rider is seriously hurt and alert emergency responders so they can come to the rider's aid as quickly as possible.

With the Eliipse app, users can arrange to lend out their bike to anyone in their trusted network or the Ellipse community while keeping track of it via the app. Within the Ellipse bike community, bike owners can lend their bikes based on prices relative to demand and location.

Ellipse is the first device that utilizes a combined solar panel and rechargeable battery system to virtually eliminate manual charging. Just one hour of sunlight provides enough power for a week and a fully charged battery lasts up to a month for average users. So unless the rider lives in a cave with little or no sunlight, the Ellipse will always be ready to go.
