Using electronics that have been proven for years on ABUS motorcycles locks, this lock utilizes a precise 3D movement sensor that triggers a 100-decibel alarm if someone starts messing with your wheels. The alarm is designed to not prematurely activate, allowing for movements that might happen while a bike is locked in tight quarters. But continued movements will set off the alarm for 15 seconds and will repeat until movement stops. Thanks to the patent pending “intelligent transport position”, activation is also avoided during transportation. The battery and activity status is displayed by means of acoustic signals giving the owner ample notice if a battery replacement is needed. Check out this video for an animated demo.

Total lock length is 90cm/35 inches and it is rated for Level 10 security thanks to its 5mm steel bars. The bars, links, and lock body are made of special hardened steel, and a soft-touch coating on the bars and matching silicone lock body cover protects bike’s paint job. ABUS’s Plus Cylinder offers a high degree of protection against picking, and two keys supplied with the lock. Designed and made in Germany, the Abus Bordo Alarm folding lock sells for $170.
