Prevents theft and tampering.
Bike: De Rosa Protos and others
After my Pinarello Dogma was stolen, I started using AlterLock to prevent theft and tampering. Awareness is the key to prevention. I’ve installed AlterLock on all my bikes.
I was so relieved my bike was saved!
Bike: Merida Reacto 8000-E
I saw someone checking out my road bike, but I was too far away to do anything. He pulled a tool out of his pocket and broke the lock. However, AlterLock detected the vibration and sounded the alarm, scaring him off.
It's great to have security and peace of mind.
Bike: Specialized Venge Pro
I bought AlterLock after hearing the buzz about it. I used to have a standard wire lock and was worried about leaving my bike while shopping at the convenience store. With AlterLock’s excellent security, I now have peace of mind. It’s rock-solid dependable—no doubt about it!
The AlterLock device attaches to the bottle cage bosses on a standard sports bike. If you already have a bottle cage installed, the device can go underneath it.
The AlterLock device works within the Sigfox service area (primarily Europe). Outside the service area, all functions will work within the Bluetooth transmission range of your smartphone. You can check the service area here.
Note: Even within the service area, notifications may not reach your smartphone if the bike is being kept indoors, where the signal is weak, or in an environment with poor reception.
Bluetooth trackers are challenging to track once they leave your hands. AlterLock has stand-alone communication and GPS so you can track your device wherever it is.
AlterLock is designed specifically for theft prevention. It cannot be used as a GPS tracker that continuously provides location information. GPS location is activated only when the AlterLock device detects movement in Lock mode, significantly reducing power consumption and enabling long-term tracking.
If someone tries to remove the device, AlterLock detects the vibration and sounds an alarm to warn you, so you can rush to your bike. If you’d like to make it even harder to remove the device, additional anti-theft bolts and a special tool are available. You can purchase these together with the device as a special set. They’re not sold separately.

AlterLock transmits data via Sigfox (a low-power, wide-area [LPWA] communication system) when beyond Bluetooth range. LPWA allows the AlterLock device to communicate independently of your smartphone with minimal power consumption and at low cost.
Since Sigfox uses different communication bands in different regions, Alterlock comes in several versions.
The European version is available in the following countries: Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, and United Kingdom.
