As much security as a standard U-lock with the flexibility of a cable lock. Large diameter hardened steel shells protect an 8mm, tough twisted steel cable offering excellent protection. Equipped with the ABUS quality 5-pin cylinder; comes with 2 keys. Cable is completely covered in vinyl to protect steel from corrosion.
Strengths: Strong and thick. Looks intimidating. Protective casing keeps bike looking good.
Weaknesses: heavy? not really a weakness for a lock
I've used this lock for the past 2-3 years for commuting to work. I leave it at work, locked to the stairwell so it sees the elements night and day. It's still works as flawless as the day I bought it.
It really looks burly and tough but it's flexible enough so you can wrap it around unatural curves. The casing is excellent and protects the lock as well as your bike from unwanted scratches and dents. Very easy to use but probably a bit heavy for a "travel" type of lock. I wouldn't want to carry it on my bike. Good stationary lock that I have absolutely no complaints about. Stellar product and does it's job.
