Even though bikes are getting lighter and lighter, secure locks are getting heavier and heavier. That’s because they’re made using heavy metal chains and tubes and it’s the thickness of the metal that’s meant to provide additional security. I thought there had to be a better option. We have combined Boaflexicore® with a patented inline lock to create Litelok®, a revolutionary new bike lock that is lightweight, flexible, and super secure. It weighs less than 1 kilogram (2.2 lbs) and unlike D and U locks, is flexible and easy to secure around fixed objects. Plus, it snaps securely shut without the need for a key.
