No two ways about it, getting your bike stolen sucks. Even worse, it’s the biggest barrier preventing people from riding great bikes. City-dwellers are so scared of theft, they’d rather drive, cram themselves into the subway, or (gasp) ride a crappy bike instead.
We’ve had enough.
We’re tired of letting thieves rule the city. That’s why we’re promising to end bike theft by 2020, so you can ride where you want, how you want, whenever you want.
How would you react if you were offered a ‘second hand’ bike at a price that’s just too good to be true?Watch
Bike theft relies on three factors – the bike (duh), the thief, and the buyer. By tackling the issue from all three angles, we can completely eradicate bike theft, forever.
VanMoof bikes have always led the way when it comes to integrated anti-theft tech. And the next-gen Electrified S2 & X2 are in a league of their own. The sneaky Stealth Lock secures your bike with a single kick, while the three-phase alarms put thieves in their place. And if someone does pinch it? Location tracking means it’s only a matter of time ‘til we get it back.
Seen a deal that’s too good to be true? Enter a VanMoof frame number, and we’ll check if that bike has been reported stolen. You’ll find the unique frame number stamped on the bottom of the bike, between the pedals.
