Slow Guy On the Fast Ride Podcast

The creation process of an OTTOLOCK

In his latest newsletter, “a handmade tale” podcaster Dan Cavallari took a close look at the genesis of OTTOLOCK and the production of the super light and durable OTTOLOCKs. To that end, he recently met Jake VanderZanden, our founder of Ottolock, and former pro cyclist Jacob Rathe, the “idea man” behind the Ottolock concept, at OTTOLOCK HQ in Oregon. He found it especially remarkable how much manual work is necessary to produce an OTTOLOCK. Below you can find the pictures he took during his visit. It is noticeable that many small parts and single steps are necessary to produce the OTTOLOCK. He found it particularly remarkable how much manual labor is required to produce an OTTOLOCK.
