Bar­gain se­cu­rity

Save £££s on a brand new disc lock

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Ox­ford Mon­ster disc lock £50.59

This Thatcham and Sold Se­cure Gold ap­proved lock is nor­mally £69.99 but they are cur­rently on sale. You could say it’s a bit of a steal… Puns aside, it has an 11mm hard­ened Ni-cro-mo steel al­loy shackle and dou­ble lock­ing mech­a­nism. The body has a wider open­ing than some to make it easy to slot onto your bike’s disc.

Mam­moth Se­cu­rity Shackle £30.99

An­other one on sale at the mo­ment, you’d nor­mally be look­ing at £45.99. The lock has Thatcham se­cu­rity ap­proval and uses an 11mm Cro-mo steel al­loy shackle. It can dou­ble up as a pad­lock to work with a chain. The lock body is longer than some ri­vals. MCN Pro­duc­tion Ed­i­tor Si­mon Brown uses one of these on his Du­cati Scram­bler FT and finds it fits nicely around the cast spokes.

Abus De­tecto £95

A pricey of­fer­ing but more of a bar­gain when you con­sider it nor­mally re­tails at £131.99. The ex­tra cash pays for an ear-pierc­ing alarm and a clever Snap’n’go de­sign which means you can get the lock on quickly us­ing just one hand. It comes with its own carry bag and bet­ter still, the bat­ter­ies are in­cluded. An LED in­di­cates that the sys­tem is armed.

Gear Grem­lin 10mm Tem­pest disc lock £26.99

More of a ba­sic de­sign than the oth­ers here, but that also makes it more af­ford­able and it will still act as a use­ful vis­ual de­ter­rent. If a thief is faced with two sim­i­lar bikes, one locked and one left un­de­fended, it is ob­vi­ous which will be the tar­get. It comes in red, bright yel­low or chrome fin­ish and has its own carry pouch, too.
