the world’s first anti-theft bicycle
according to yerka bikes, a Bicycle gets robbed in europe every four seconds. to prevent this from happening and reduce the number of bike thefts, the brand is stepping in and introducing yerka V3, a worry-free bike that claims to be the world’s first anti-theft bike. from its aesthetics to its functionality, the bike retains an integral element for its users at work: safety.
as a patented anti-theft technology, yerka V3 has an easy-to-use integrated lock technology that takes only 15 seconds to lock and unlock the bike to and from poles, fences, bike parking or almost anywhere where up to 20 centimeters wide. even the wheels of the bike are protected because the brand has incorporated nuts with a unique pattern that require a special adapter – already included in the purchase – to disassemble them. yerka V3 also exudes versatility as users have dedicated holes where they can install almost any type of child seat, fender or grill.

light and resistant
while a normal bicycle and a lock can weigh up to 17 kg or even more – not to mention that motorcyclists must carry a backpack to bring them – the yerka weighs only 12.9 kg, which makes it a lightweight and portable bike that eliminates unnecessary extra weight. the reduced weight does not compromise the look of the bike whose entire frame is made of aluminum and chromoly steel to provide rigidity and safety. in terms of durability, the yerka has been approved to withstand objects up to 150 kg without problems based on the brand’s tests.
yerka V3 is also available in four colors: turquoise, black, white and gold. the brand’s exclusive gold color has an anodizing treatment on its rims which provides a protective layer maximizing the life of the yerka. the extra layer of protection maximizes the life of the bike, reducing repair and maintenance visits. another element that marks its safety philosophy is its phosphorescent function integrated into the tires using reflective strips.
yerka V3 can be locked to all structures up to 7 inches wide.
flight proof to the end
as the brand recalls the bicycle as an anti-theft device: ‘Since the bike frame acts as its own lock, breaking the lock means breaking the bike itself. any thief would consider this an impossible idea. if for some reason the thief breaks the post, fence or structure to which the yerka was attached, they will not be able to pedal, as the locking system also locks the cranks.‘
andrés roi, the co-founder and CMO of yerka bikes, believes that people are at the center of mobility. ‘the future of mobility can’t just be about staying at home, putting a vr headset on and making a living from there. moving around might not be so comfortable, but for some reason, unlike machines, we have bodies. I believe that we must continue to move forward to remain human.‘It is visible that the team has infused this philosophy into the redesigner yerka V3.
