No this isn’t an old flip phone. It’s the Hiplok FLX, a wearable “café style” combination lock and bike light. Security is provided by a 3-digit combo lock paired with a thin braided steel cable. An integrated clip allows you to secure the device to a bag or the back of your jersey. More info at hiplok.com.
