The TiGr is a titanium lock designed to fasten around both wheels, frame, and bike rack. Made of a long rectangular titanium bow and a separate lock body makes this lock strong and weighs only 16.3 oz (459 g). The titanium body comes in two widths, 1.25″ (32mm) or 0.75″ (19mm), and three different lengths, 24” (61cm), 30” (76cm), 18” (46cm). Manufactured and assembled in the US.

A super light, durable, and easy to use lock. Great value when you consider that most locks easily weigh more than twice as much.
The lock body is made of stainless steel and had to be carried separately which was a little cumbersome. There is now an accessory available that attaches the lock body easily to your bike, sold separately.
This is an excellent lock that I would feel confident using in any moderate risk bike locking situation. This lock felt strong and had the capability to lock both of my bicycle wheels. The TiGr lock’s bow fits on the top tube of your bike frame and is secured with two Velcro straps. This snug and simple lightweight way of transporting the lock on your bike makes for vibration-free, quiet riding, that does not take up any valuable real estate on your frame. In high-risk locking situations, one lock is usually not enough, so it is great to have a reliable lightweight lock like the TiGr lock to have as a secondary lock.
