ABUS mastered the folding lock with the uGrip Bordo 5700, our favorite of its type. Made in Germany, this model is a smooth operator that is built to last. The joints rotate without any stiffness and allow for versatile lock ups to awkward structures. We love that the locking mechanism head of the lock turns independently, and the ability to secure the lock without turning the key increases its simplicity. Best of all, it's lightweight and compact, a piece of cake to transport in a bag or attach to the frame with ease. It doesn't offer robust security, but folks living in lower crime areas will dig how easy this lock is to bring with and use.
The uGrip Bordo faced competition in low to mid security models. The INBIKE 8 Joint is a less expensive folding lock, but it isn't as easy to use, it's less secure, and will not last as long. If you want to step up a level in security, the Hiplok Original: Superbright is a wearable chain lock with heavier-duty construction and increased versatility.
