If you cycle on a regular basis, you will certainly know how useful bike locks are. Easy to use yet strong enough, our bike locks will allow you to park your bike safely.

Bicycle locks, essential for urban cyclists

Urban cycling often involves leaving your bike on the street while you run an errand or have a meal, for example. To be able to go about your business without worrying about your bike being stolen, it is therefore advisable to choose from quality bike locks.

There are generally two types of bike locks: the U-locksand the chain locks. U-locks are rigid bike locks in which one will ideally come to take both the frame, the wheel and a fixed point of urban equipment such as a solid fence for example. This makes it difficult to steal the bike. For example, we suggest the black Evolution Mini 7 U-lock with flex cable from Kryptonite. It has a double lock and a flex cable to secure an extra accessory. It also comes with a mounting bracket to easily attach it to the bike when not in use. You also have the option of choosing a U-lock mini version from Kryptonite for a smaller, more compact version. If you prefer to choose a chain lock, we suggest the 90 cm steel chain lock Evolution series 4 from Kryptonite. This is a chain lock designed to resist drilling and picking attempts. More flexible, the chain lock is a folding device that is easy to handle and can be easily stored in a bag for example. Bicycles with a chain and a lock are therefore also very well protected. The Abus lock models are also products that combine an anti-theft device with an alarm. These products are available at a very affordable price.


Limiting the risk of theft

When you have a bicycle in the city, the risk of theft is omnipresent. It is therefore recommended to systematically store your bike at home or in a closed space for the night. During the working day, it is preferable to store your bike in a private, guarded car park before collecting it in the evening. The choice of a quality lock will also make all the difference in ensuring that it is not sawed off, for example. It is therefore best to invest in a good lock when you care about your bike. Of course, the lock should be used whenever you leave your bike and attach it to a fixed point. Accessories that are attached to the bike should also be removed to prevent them from being stolen. This includes a possible luggage rack bag, the lights, or even the the bell. Overall, it's best to do everything you can to avoid the unpleasant experience of bike theft. It is also worthwhile taking out insurance if you have a bike of a certain value.
