Xena Disc-Lock Alarm. Looks And Sounds Good To Me.

Why a lock would not look good on your bike? You must admit that this one is looking cool in its high nickel content stainless steel mono block construction. But I would not talk about it if it would not perform equally well. It incorporates a 110 db shock and motion sensor that you alarm with a single turn of the key (no on-off switch to worry about). And for the technicians reading me, here how it works. When the lock is unlocked by the key: it wakes up an LED arming sensor located in the gap where the brake disc goes. Light is transmitted from an LED source and is reflected by a small mirror and bounced back to a sensor.When the lock is placed on the brake disc, the light flow is broken and the alarm is armed. To tell you this has happened, it lets out a single arming beep. After it is armed: the shock and motion sensors work independently to tell you if the bike is being tampered with. So, if any kind of electric shock (say, from a metal tool hitting the surface of the bike or lock (or if the lock is moved against the brake disc enough to generate a small shock) then the alarm triggers. Also, if the bike (and with it the lock) are moved enough, the motion sensor triggers the alarm. After it is triggered: the alarm gives two warning beeps and then sounds a piercing 110dB alarm, which sound for 12-15 seconds before re-setting or continuing, based on whether you have any more disruption.

    Would be perfect to prevent that indescribably embarrassing moment, when, after swaggering up to your fine custom bike, parting the admiring crowd that’s gathered around it, swinging your leg over it and booting it to life, dropping the clutch, and then…….dropping the bike one foot up the road. Ooops, forgot the disc lock in my moment of glory…! Has only happened once to me, but I still get racked about it by my ride buddies every time they get the chance.

    PS. Love your blog and your work Cyril. Been out of the loop for a while, but enjoy this blog to keep a finger on the pulse. Thanks.
