Bike Security by Real Cyclists

2014

Realizing the problem

Growing up in Queens, New York and living in the San Francisco Bay Area, LINKA founder Mohamed Mohamed (or ‘Mo’ to friends) is near obsessed with urban cycling, and the need for dependable bike security. As a daily bike commuter and a mechanical engineer, he began to develop LINKA in 2014 when he could not find a keyless lock that met his standards for security and ease of use.

Finding Inspiration

Over the next several months, Mo interviewed 300 riders to identify every gap that existing locks did not fulfill and uncovered new features that urban cyclists needed. One weekend, he spent hours sitting in front of the UC Berkeley Art Museum with a stopwatch, clocking the average time it took for bikers to lock their bikes (2.5 minutes). Half of them were locked up incorrectly.

Our Mission

At LINKA, we make products that enhance the convenience and security of urban biking. Our goal is to encourage sustainable urban mobility and reduce our collective carbon footprint while promoting healthier and less congested cities.

To guarantee durability and dependability of our technology, we test our products rigorously (and put them up to others’ strict tests). We believe that if we make products that fit seamlessly into the way we ride, we will make the biking lifestyle easier for new riders to adopt and more worry-free for existing riders.

PROTOTYPE

Leaning on his background in automotive product design for companies like Toyota, Hyundai and Kia, Mo developed LINKA as an elegant, faster, more convenient and more secure alternative to existing locks. He presented a working prototype of the world’s first mounted keyless smart bike lock at Bike Expo New York in 2015.

2016

Kickstarter

Two weeks after Bike Expo New York, Mo launched his campaign on Kickstarter. Within three days, the campaign was fully funded and LINKA locks began shipping in 2016.

2017

Global Success

Since then, LINKA has won the most prestigious bike design and innovation awards in the world, including the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i Gold Award and Eurobike GOLD Award. LINKA is also the FIRST electronic bike lock to be certified and approved by ART Foundation, the Netherland’s most stringent and renowned bike security testing organization.

Today, LINKA is sold in 45 countries and employs a team in San Francisco, Hong Kong and Germany.
