VAULT locks and ID kits now available in bike shops!


Welcome aboard Grant and the team at Giant Sydney - 230 Clarence Street, Sydney our new partner bike shop selling the VAULT brand range of locks and bike identification kits!  

Combatting bike theft requires more than just a bike lock!

A quality bike lock will help to deter the opportunist thief from stealing your bike, although when it comes to our arch-enemy the serial bike thief who carries tools and targets bikes for a financial gain, quality locks are only one part of the solution.  

The key to stopping our arch-enemy and the black market traders who profit from stolen bikes is to make bikes too hot to handle so that they can no longer sell stolen bikes without fearing the bike will be identified and they will be caught.   

Lacking bike identification and the inability for the public prior to BikeVAULT to check if a bike for sale is stolen, is a major reason why bike theft is a high-volume crime in Australia, with 25,000+ bikes stolen annually and very few recovered.
