An American Success Story Full of Unique Locks

In the early 1970s, the founder of Kryptonite Michael Zane was a full bearded freethinker with an old VW bus and a great idea for a unique lock. He drove thousands of miles across the USA, presented his innovative lock to bicycle dealers, the first U-lock ever. He spread his passion for bicycle safety and forged lifelong friendships.

A legendary test for Kryptonite’s new bicycle locks came in 1972. The Second Avenue Bicycle Shop in New York City locked a three-speed bicycle to a signpost in Greenwich Village under Kryptonite founder Michael Zane’s direction. Although all of the removable parts were immediately stripped by thieves, the bicycle itself remained for thirty days and thirty nights. The Kryptonite lock and the bike frame were still in place, even though the lock had been attacked numerous times. Publicity from this event gave Kryptonite the boost it needed, forever changing the face of bicycle security.

While much has changed in bicycling, and bicycle security, our objective remains the same, we are here to empower you to protect what you value. Through constant innovation, expert guidance, and our never-ending commitment, Kryptonite will continue to pursue our passion and do everything we can to ensure you can go where you want, when you want by offering smart, serious security solutions.

Today, the product range in the bicycle sector extends from U-Locks, Chain & Folding Locks to combinations of U-Locks and Cable Locks.

Anti-Theft Protection (ATPO)

What is the Anti-Theft Protection Offer (Known as ATPO)?

Kryptonite stands behind its products by providing an Anti-Theft Protection Offer on specific locks. Created by Kryptonite in 1978, the Anti-Theft Protection Offer is a program that reimburses registered customers for a specific monetary amount in the event their bicycle/motorcycle is stolen due to the opening or breaking of the lock by force. ATPO coverage is not bicycle insurance and there is no affiliation with an insurance company. The offer is administered by Kryptonite.

How does ATPO work?

If your bicycle or powersport vehicle is stolen because of the malicious or unintended opening or breaking of the Kryptonite lock by force, we will pay you the lesser of one of the following, subject to a maximum amount based on the type of lock product identified in the claim:

1) the base cost of your bicycle or powersport vehicle excluding tax and accessories;
or
2) any insurance deductible
(Note: Kryptonite requires proof of payment from your insurance company prior to paying your deductible under this Offer).
