GPS tracking devices, light locks and an acrylic spray paint for bikes among the innovative highlights

Innovation Lab returns to the London Bike Show

The Innovation Lab is back for its second year at the London Bike Show.

BikeBiz is once again supporting the initiative that showcases some of the newer brands entering the market, giving them a platform amongst household cycle brands. 

This time around, the Innovation Lab will be showcasing GPS tracking devices, light locks and an acrylic spray paint for bikes.

Sherlock Bike is coming to London Bike Show’s Innovation Lab off the back of an awards win. Sherlock was one of 100 companies to be selected out of 3,000 at Innovate 2015 in November, an event run by UK Trade and Investment and Innovate UK. Sherlock is a small GPS alarm that tracks bikes in real time and enables owners to retrieve it in case of theft. The design is small and light enough to be embedded into the frame, saddle or handlebars.

Also appearing is Spray Bike, pitched as the first ever range of bicycle-specific colour coating sprays, designed for amateur and professional use. The range was previewed at Eurobike last year with Brick Lane Bikes and the firm has recently produced a Fluro collection, including Magenta and Light Blue. 

Also at the Lab is Litelok, a lightweight, flexible and secure bike lock making use of Patented Boaxflexicore. Available in three colours, Litelok has met all British and International lock quality standards and achieved Sold Secure Bicycle Gold. 

Other Innovation Lab exhibitors include Blaze. The PR-friendly firm recently scored a coup when it teamed up with Transport for London on the Santander Cycle Hire bikes and now has a new rear light to exhibit – the Burner.

The Innovation Lab can be found at the London Bike Show at ExCeL, running from Thursday February 11th to 14th.
