Product Description

The Abus Ugrip Bordo is a different kind of lock, it’s foldable. Combining strength, security and weight in an easily transportable compact design it makes a great security feature for any bike. The great thing about this U lock is you get the flexibility of a cable lock, but with the strength of a D-lock (without the weight).

Great for moderate crime areas the Abus Ugrip Bordo is highly picking resistant and makes an ideal lock for quick stops or on long rides where you don’t want to lug around a heavy system. Abus have also gone to town on the colours - often locks are just black, but these add a splash of colour.

Review | 9 / 10

    A good second lock

    My bike lives outside in London, so I bought this as a second lock to use alongside my D lock. Although it is heavier than the kinds of cable locks that many in London use for their front wheels, it's not *too* heavy, and it's easier to carry around than a long cable because it's more easily attached to the frame. It's probably also harder for thieves to cut than a thin cable - I hope so, anyway. It's easy to fold / unfold; it's just long enough to reach around a wheel, the frame, and a slim poll / railing; and the lock opens and shuts without too much trouble. I deducted points for performance because I wouldn't trust it as a primary lock, and price because it's expensive for a second lock. For anyone wondering, it's too short to fit adding something like a lamppost. I chose the bright orange to match my frame :)

    Overall very happy with this lock

    Looks the part, easy to fit and better reach than most U locks. Folds up nicely so easy to carry as well. A bit heavier than I hoped for but still pretty good as serious locks go.

    Foldable u-lock

    More flexible then and u lock allowing more securing options, plus you can connect multiple locks together which can be useful when locking multiple bikes together. Easy to transport on the bike frame. I Have only used for short stops and probably would use a u-lock as well if leaving a good bike somewhere like the train station

    Bike Locks Guide

    What type of bike lock do I need?

    Cable Lock | Use in low crime areas

    These are the lightest bike locks. They’re very flexible and easy to carry in your pocket or on your frame. Great as a visual deterrent or secondary lock to fix quick release components to your frame.

    Combination Lock | Use in low crime areas

    These are cable locks with a 3 or 4-digit combination rather than a key lock. They are great if you don't want to worry about forgetting keys.

    Chain Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

    Chain locks are versatile. Thick chain links are great against bolt cutters. You can secure your bike to a range of bulky and unusual objects.

    D-Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

    D-locks are strong and often made from hardened steel. You get 360-degree protection for your frame. Locking mechanisms can resist picking and drilling while the D shaping makes leverage style attacks difficult.

    Ground anchor | Use in high crime areas

    Ground anchors are immovable platforms you fix to your garage floor or wall. When used with a strong chain lock you can fix your frame to the anchor. These offer the best protection for home storage.

    How heavy is a bike lock?

    In general, the stronger a bike lock, the heavier it will be.

    Cable / Combo locks

    These range from around 400g up to 1.25kg depending on the thickness and material used in the twisted cable. These are the lightest bike locks for easy transport.

    Chain locks

    Chain locks range from around 1kg up to 7kg for the thickest and toughest chain locks. Choose a mid-range weight if you're commuting daily to blend strength and weight.

    D Locks

    D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.

    What is Sold Secure?

    A great way to determine the quality of a bike lock is to see if it is Sold Secure Rated. This is a third party, independent rating system.

    An approved lock is graded as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rating is chosen by how long it takes to break the lock and the tools needed to break it.

    If you're planning on insuring your bike, many insurers will state you need a Sold Secure rated lock to make a successful claim.

    Typically a bronze rating covers a bike up to the value of £500, silver up to £1,000 and gold for any bike worth over £1,000.

    These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.
