Award   START-UP WINNER 2017
Category   Start-up
Company   Texlock GmbH

Tex—lock is an innovative textile-based lock, composed of high-tech materials, making it secure, flexible and lightweight. Modern leisure equipment continues to evolve into lighter and higher quality variations. Necessary anti-theft devices are continually produced with steel. Most locks are rigid, cumbersome and heavy. The rope itself weights no more than 350 g per meter. It offers a completely new look, touch and feel. It is very comfortable to handle and flexible enough to fit easily into your pocket or bag and prevents scratches and rattling due to its gentle construction. Various locking mechanisms and rope-integrated smart functions like alarms or sensors are planned.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Weight/ pack size

Jury Statement

It is pretty amazing to see how well this bike lock works. Especially given the fact, that it is made solely of textile materials. It’s also lighter than conventional metal locks and offers a good level of safety.
