FalcoCargoBox Cargo Bike Locker
The new FalcoCargobox is the UK’s first purpose designed storage solution to meet the growing trend for cargo and adaptive bikes.
Taking the original FalcoBox storage shelter a stage further, the FalcoCargobox has been redesigned to provide universal accessibility for the wide range of cargo bike shapes and sizes.
The FalcoCargobox is simple and easy to use. Two securely locked front doors open to provide easy accessibility from the front and an innovitve gas-strut assisted lid can be opened to provide easy accessibility from above. Together when fully opened, the FalcoCargobox is an open and spacious cargo bike storage solution that is easily operated.
In addition to Cargo bikes, the cycle locker is ideal for storing all types of non-standard silhouette bikes including; adaptive bikes, recumbent bikes, tandems, tricycles, oversized and upright and as well as bike trailers.
The FalcoCargobox is a secure lockable unit and as such is an ideal solution to compliment residential streets, highstreets, car parks, rail stations, transport interchanges and recreational areas.
One of the great features of the FalcoCargobox is how attractive it can look. In line with it’s sister product the FalcoPod, with some imaginative designs you can lift your drab bike locker into the realms of a chic cycle parking facility, like images attached! It’s smooth exterior cladding makes it ideal for the application for graphic designs and ‘wraps’!
A FalcoCargobox wrap is ideal for sprucing up your neighbourhood, promoting a campaign or event, or even advertising to help the Borough bring in some extra revenue. Or why not simply advertise the fact it’s a purpose designed facility for accommodating cargo bikes! Falco has its own in-house marketing department and produces designs free of charge for clients, saving on time, money and hassle.
The FalcoCargobox is manufactured from hot-dip galvanised steel which can be optionally powder coated in any of the 192 standard RAL colours upon request.

As with all Falco cycle stores and lockers, the FalcoCargoBox can be fitted with the FalcoSmart app based locking mechansim, completely removing the need for physical keys.
The FalcoSmart app-based locking system uses Bluetooth technology to activate the locking mechanism from the users smart phone or tablet with the benefit that they no longer need to carry keys or fobs. Cyclists are able to apply for access to the locker and having downloaded the ‘App’ are given access rights to the FalcoCargoBox for a period of time depending on their subscription.
The system has a fully automated back office enabling the administrator to register new locks for new cargo lockers as well as adding new users and creating groups and assigning rights. A huge benefit to the operator is that they are able, for the first time ever, to assess usage of a cycle parking facility, directly from the back-office app information.
The FalcoSmart app-based locking system is designed to work with any cycle parking facility; from bike hubs to bike hangars and from padlocks to existing facilities, with a range of locking options all linked to the app and back-office. Each of the facilities enable the user to access any facility for example, their local bike hangar and their commutable hub without the need for multiple keys or fobs – everything is on the app. As a result of its importance to Falco and our clients we now have a patent pending on this concept (application number GB2012118.2).
FalcoPod Cargo Bike Hangar
In addition to the FalcoCargobox shown here, Falco also manufacture the FalcoPod Cargo Bike Hangar - a ‘naked’ Bike Hangar with locking points ideal for non-standard shaped bikes. The focus here was twofold; the additional space not only provides for a ‘one size fits all’ capacity which accommodates virtually all non-standard bike profiles e.g. with an upright seating position or a wide tandem, but also the addition of flexible locking bars on the hangar frame makes the FalcoPod much more compliant in terms of accommodating the diverse locking requirements of the adaptive family of bikes.
