The brand TRELOCK is a traditional brand from Münster –
the bicycle capital of Germany. TRELOCK is one of the oldest German bicycle accessory brands and also one of the best known; one in four cyclists in Germany know the brand.
TRELOCK has a long history in the production of high-quality frame locks and thereby always raised the bar for quality and comfort. TRELOCK reached the development leap from mechanics into electronics with high innovative speed at its location in Germany. By connecting these two areas, TRELOCK now goes a step further and offers its customers an usual safe frame lock with the high ease of use of modern technology.
The worldwide novelty TRELOCK SL 460 SMARTLOCK® is the first frame lock with NFC technology and sets standards in the world of bicycle locks. It can be released via smartphone
easily, which is why no additional bicycle key has to be carried anymore.
The SL 460 SMARTLOCK® is constructed compactly despite the challenging technology and can be attached to the bike compactly, just like conventional frame locks. In contrast to conventional bicycle locks the SL 460 SMARTLOCK® does without cylinder and so it does not offer possibilities for picking.
With the TRELOCK Security Level 4 of 6 it offers high security against casual thieves. This security can be increased with the well-known TRELOCK connecting chains and connecting cables.
One user can administrate any number of SMARTLOCKS® and manage the user rights via smartphone app. So for example the user rights of joint users can be seen, activated and deactivated. Thereby one lock can save up to eight different users.

The proven NFC technology offers two decisive advantages over the bluetooth-technology. Firstly, the energy is transmitted directly from the smartphone to the lock. So the lock does not require an own source of energy, has not to be loaded and has one possible attack point less. On the other hand the NFC standard offers barely attack surface because of the small
distance between transmitter and receiver – quite contrary to bluetooth connections, which can be intercepted on greater distances, too. In addition the transmitted data get encrypted via AES-128.
