This folding lock is a great alternative to u-locks and chain locks of the same security category. If your security risk is medium or low, for example, you have a cheap bike, or you only ever leave it in the hall of your apartment building, the Bordo 6000 will do the job. See More
This Albus u-lock is a great option if you have an expensive bike, and if you need to leave it in more dangerous areas of the city. The 'u' part o the lock is a parabolic shape instead of round, which makes cutting it with bolt cutters, car jack or saws too time-consuming to be possible. Every part of this lock is made from temper hardened steel. Any thieves would need power tools to break this lock. See More
U-locks don't generally transport well outside of backpacks or specialized u-lock holders that mount to the frame of your bike. It's a choice between having less space and more weight in your backpack or cluttering up your bike frame with an extra accesory. See More
The New York Noose has a Sold Secure rating of Gold. The chain links are 12mm thick, and are six sided instead of round, which makes them impossible to cut with manual bolt cutters. Given that any thieves would need to use power tools to break this chain, it will buy you plenty of time to save your bike, and it will also deter most thieves from stealing your bike. See More
The New York Noose gets its name from the cinch loop- you can wrap the chain around your object of choice like a noose. This allows for nearly the same usable length as a standard chain lock, but without the actual extra chain links, which means less bulk for you to carry. See More
With a chain thickness of 15mm it's impossible to damage this lock with manual bolt cutters.

At the very least, this lock will buy you plenty of time, or attract lots of attention to the thief brave enough to attempt to break it. See More
