£139.99 › Fold­ing lock that makes a big noise

Cycling Plus - - FIRST RIDE -

1 IT’S A BORDO

Abus’ Bordo de­sign com­bines a com­pact size with an adapt­able and large lock­ing area. The de­sign com­bines six 160mm long, 5mm thick steel bars an­chored with !ush-"tting steel riv­ets, mak­ing for a lock­able area of ap­prox­i­mately 250x250mm. Plenty of space to an­chor your frame and wheel to a bike stand.

2 IT’S TOUGH

Like all of Abus’ pre­mium prod­ucts the Bordo 6000 is a tough lock. Rated 10 out of 15 for its me­chan­i­cal re­sis­tance, it won’t be bro­ken by any­one but the most de­ter­mined thief us­ing se­ri­ous tools.

3 IT’S POR­TA­BLE

The 6000 weighs a pretty hefty 1.392kg, but thank­fully comes with a ded­i­cated bot­tle cage boss­mount­ing bracket so your bike can carry the weight.

4 YOU CAN ADD MORE LOCKS

The 6000 comes with Abus’ YourPlus key sys­tem, so the lock has a ded­i­cated code card for the keys, and through your Abus dealer you can spec­ify any other locks in the Plus com­pat­i­ble range to work with the same key. The Plus key sys­tem is also one of the tough­est to crack on the mar­ket, pass­ing most lock­smiths’ pick tests.

5 IT’LL MAKE SOME NOISE!

The 6000 has a se­ri­ous trick up its sleeve – an in­built alarm. Us­ing 3D mo­tion sens­ing the alarm senses ev­ery move­ment, but won’t go o# if some­one just brushes past. If knocked it will make a short, sharp warn­ing sound but if your bike is un­der a pro­longed at­tack the sus­tained move­ment will set the alarm o# in full - an ear-pierc­ing 100dB, which should no­tify pretty much ev­ery­one in the neigh­bour­hood and de­ter thieves.

A lit­tle lock that has lots to shout about to keep your bike se­cure
