Knog Bouncer $49.95 USD/ $59.99 CAD knog.com.au
This no fuss u-lock is designed with a double locking mechanism that secures both sides of the shackle that means if a thief manages to cut one side, they’ll have to contend with the other side as well since the shackle can’t be twisted open.

The San Quentin u-lock features Blackburn’s highest security rating. The company stands by this claim with a $4000 theft replacement offer. A hexagonal shackle prevents pivoting that would require a would-be thief to make two cuts in order to free your locked bike.

If you want a lock that weighs next to nothing, at 1.04 lbs (0.5 kg) the TiGr® Lock is as light as you’ll find.

The TiGr® Lock comes in two sizes .75” (19mm) and 1.25” (32mm) wide.
