Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome and versatile locking system
I've had this lock for about 6 months now after replacing the lower specc'd Abus Bordo which seemed kind of flimsy to me.
I live in a high theft area and park my bike in all sorts of dodgy, dark spots. With this meaty lock on, I've never had a care in the world.
There are a few videos of people trying to bust this lock - it would take some real pros who would stop at nothing to get your bike. For the garden variety thief, this will be way too much.
The lock is compact - I couldn't fit standard D-Locks on my bike so this is a godsend. It doesn't weigh too much and is comparable to a high-grade D-Lock. The rubber holder is tough and attaches easily with either screws or velcro strap.
But where this lock trumps them all is the folding system that makes locking up the frame and rear wheel a breeze. You might have to adjust your technique slightly as the segments are reasonably long but once you work it out, it is actually very manageable. I have also taken the front wheel off my hybrid and locked that, the frame and rear wheel all together without too much difficulty. Try doing that with a standard D-Lock!
The only quibble I have is the locking end makes a tight fit so can be hard to release without a bit of a juggle. A bit of grease would probably fix that.
Had no problems in the wet and lock seems to be weather proof having spent most of its time outside.

I bought this lock as a replacement for my old Abus Bordo 6000. This one is certainly much more beefy compared to is smaller brother so I fell much more confident already. The lock itself is quite heavy, but along with that weight, comes peace of mind if you ask me!
I would still not recommend using this lock by itself for a high end bike (my commuting bike costs £600). But perhaps to use in conjunction with another high quality U-lock such as the highly rated Granit X-plus 54 which I also own) or the Kryptonite New yourk series of locks.

Recently had 3 of my bikes stolen from the garage which was devastating, The Police told to spend 15% of my bikes value on locks and i had seen these folding locks a few times but didn't know how strong they are but a friend of mine had this one that was attacked by thiefs and they could not get in, the lock was marked slightly and you could see they tried bending it and cutting it you can see bolt cutter marks also but it kept his bike safe and did the job brillinatly and most of all he can still use it, I now use this lock with 2 good ABUS d-locks with0 a wall anchor and chain and I know they will struggle for a long time trying to get my new bikes.

I feel safe living in the city knowing this protects my bike from theft. With its hardened steel im protected from cuttibg, breaking ,bending and freezing. The the lock is non penetratable and protected aganst lockpickibg of any sort even drill. Its kind of heavy and ways alot but its worth buying because the waight doesnt compair to the safety you get. This is totaly the lock you should have if you live in the city

Simply amazing lock, not light but it is solid, attaches to frame with non-slip velcro or attach with bottle cage mounts.
Far better than Kryptonite and folds up really neatly, looks far better than the image though mines a much more substantial case.
