Arm Yourself Against Bike Theft with This Anti-Angle Grinder Graphene Lock

Oct 5, 2021

Try as we might at preventing bikes from being stolen, it remains a very real issue for cyclists all over the world. Because let’s face it. Even in the face of locks, chains, and other anti-theft devices, if a thief wants your wheels badly enough, rest assured — they’ll find a way. With tools like crowbars and bolt cutters, for instance, they can make mincemeat out of pretty much anything.

Well, except for Hiplok’s latest offering. Dubbed the ‘D1000,’ it’s the world’s first portable bike lock to be completely resistant to angle grinder attacks. Made from a graphene-based composite known as Ferosafe, it comes with a grippy rubber coating and a unique squared profile. As such, it’s also incredibly formidable against other entry methods, be it levering, striking, or even picking. And because it comes with a set of anti-rotational double-locking tabs, a thief would have to cut through both sides of the body in order to steal your bike — no small feat, to say the least. But don’t just take our word for it; the Hiplok D1000 comes with a Sold Secure Diamond rating, meaning it’s pretty much as good as it gets when it comes to stopping bike thieves in their tracks.

Shipping with three coded keys, the D1000 is made only better by an optional carrying pouch that allows for easy on-the-go storage. It’s set to retail for $345, but if you back the Kickstarter campaign today, you can land a lock for just 271 bucks.

Kickstarter: $271+
