What is n’lock?

n’lock was invented  in 2013.

His motivation was simple: bicycle lock technology had barely changed in 100 years. So it was surely time for a new technology and improve on the old outdated bicycle locks, where you could not only protect bicycles, but also improve the way of storing and transporting your bicycle – and n’lock was that solution.

When a bicycle needs to be storaged, n’lock allows the handlebar to be turned, reducing the space it consumes by up to 40%. This makes transportation and storage in tight spaces much easier.

The n’lock’s innovative design also offers a real deterrence for potential thieves – and real peace of mind for bicycle owners.

N’lock is patented and the system is TUV approved. The lock function requires two hands to operate protecting against accidental unlock, while cycling.

The Danish company Turn1 acquired the products, patent and rights to n’lock in 2013. Denmark is a land of cyclists, and the mission of Turn1 is to spread our passion for biking by improving the convenience and security of cyclists around the world.


The n’lock is a new system that offers you convenience and security every single day. It allows you to store and transport your bike in smaller spaces than you thought possible. And anyone seeking to steal a bike with an n’lock will be faced with a challenge: the need to cut the wire, and then either carry the bike or remove the n’lock and install a new handlebar. That’s a real deterrence for any thief – and real peace of mind for every n’lock owner.


n’lock 300 series is for those who want a simple, everyday lock that can be operated in seconds.

When the lock is activated, the handlebar can be rotated 180 degress without the front wheel following. This makes the bike impossible to drive. The n’lock 300 series is best for those who need to store their bike in small spaces because turning the handlebar reduces the space it consumes by up to 40%.

n’lock 400 series functions the same as the n’lock 300 series, but with added security. A heavy wire can be put through the front wheel of the bike, bicycle stand, tree, post or other solid object. The wire is then inserted into the bottom of the n’lock, and when the knob is turned, the wire is locked with the n’lock.
