As secure as Fort Knox. U-locks are classics when it comes to securing bikes, and for good reason. Solid materials and no moving parts outside the lock mechanism are an excellent starting point for the strongest resistance possible. Decades of experience with U-locks have made us experts in combining the most resistant materials with unique technology, and consequently one of the leading U-locks manufacturers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MTBRIDERUK Not what i expected
I know the Security rating is great but the lock is very heavy and doesnt really impress me for the money.
I use this to lock my bike at work and after a month the grey plastic piece at the shackle keeps falling off exposing the metal works. due to this ive lost the 2 metal clips that work as a key hole protector stopping elements getting in.
The rubber sleeve that runs around the lock surround is easily damaged and now has loads of chunks missing from it.
After 5 months the paint at the square ends that lock into the shackle has worn off and are now rusting, im having to keep adding grease to combat this.
Overall it is preforming its task of keeping bike safe yes, but for the money I would have expected the build quality to be better.
Price wise i would be happier if this had cost £55 not £85

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Worth the money
After having 3 of my bikes stolen from the garage recently which was devastating, The Police told to spend 15% of my bikes value on locks as a minimum and alot of people i know rated this lock very highly to me.
To stop this happening again and prevent another £5k worth of bikes go missing I've bought 2 of these locks, 1 of those ABUS folding things and an ABUS chain, my insurance company advised on a floor anchor so I've fitted 2 ABUS 90 quid anchors one on the floor and one on the wall to, which i don't think can ever be removed its a serious beast.
The tip I was given which I thought I would pass on is to use a selection of locks, this will mean the thieving (wont repeat) will have to use different tools and more time breaking them. the folding Bardo lock is actually amazing as well. so I think spending over £500 on locks and an upgraded garage side door has been worth every penny, just wish i had done it sooner

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Fantastic lock, mine was attacked with saws and hammers but didn't break. Unfortunately the scum worked out it was easier to cut through my frame to take the bike.
