With a security rating of 15 out of 15, the ABUS Granit X-Plus 54 Mini U-Lock is part of ABUS’s X-Plus series of high security locks. The lock offers the highest protection against hitting and pulling attacks and the shackle is double bolting. Features industry-leading corrosion resistance suitable for wet, rainy, and snowy climates. Equipped with an automatic keyhole to protect from dirt and corrosion, along with two keys, one with an LED light.


The width of this lock makes it easy to get around parking meters when no bike rack is available.


It would be great if I could fit the lock into my back pocket.


ABUS’s Granit X-Plus U-Mini 54 is a solid, rugged lock that made me confident locking my bike in any part of town. The width and shape of this U-lock made it easier to get around parking meters and other awkward locking spots. However, being a guy that prefers tucking his lock under his belt or in the back pocket of his jeans, this lock was a little too wide and heavy as a comfortable jean accessory.
