Litelok® bike lock weighs less than 1 kilogram (2.2 lbs) and unlike D and U locks, the strap is flexible and easy to secure around fixed objects. Litelok® also has a patented inline lock that snaps securely shut without the need for a key.
Made using a composite strap called Boaflexicore®, each layer provides additional security, meaning it can withstand sustained attack to the highest level (for over 5 minutes) from tools like cable cutters, bolt croppers and hacksaws.
Weighing under 1 Kg (2.2 lbs), Litelok® is significantly lighter than every other secure bike lock currently on the market. Of course there are light weight cable locks out there but they can be cut in seconds.
There’s currently nothing on the market that offers the flexibility and security of Litelok®. This flexibility means it’s easier to secure around a much wider array of fixed objects such as tree trunks, lamp posts, concrete posts, fencing, railings, sign posts than D or U locks.
Litelok® meets all British and International lock quality standards and in-house testing has proven that it takes well over five minutes to cut or break the strap and lock. This exceeds the highest level of security rating awarded by the independent testing and certification houses for security products.
Click to lock
Litelok® has been designed and engineered to simply click closed without the need for a key, making it faster and easier to secure. A key is only used to unlock your bicycle.
The patent pending in-line lock has been developed with a well-known UK lock manufacturer and has been tested and trialled to ensure it is the most reliable and secure lock possible.
Easy to carry
Litelok® is easy to carry – they supply two wrap strap bike accessories with each Litelok® so you can attach them wherever you like on your bike. They also suggest attaching it securely to your bicycle frame as shown in their film, but you may have a rack or brackets already fitted so it’s up to you.
The innovative in-line lock allows them to offer Litelok® in twin-lock format – ie a multi-pack of two Liteloks which operate from the same unique key.
You can use the two bike locks together (in parallel or on separate wheels) for extra security, or joined together (in series) for extra length, whichever works best.
