Sold Secure Silver rated
On the heavy side
Neat use of wordplay indicates Hiplok’s on-trend attitude, and the fact that it’s designed to be worn around the waist for ease of portability is an inventive way of solving the age old problem of what to do with your lock when it's not in use. These locks are an accessory you're likely to see on any urban fixed gear bicycle rider, too.
This Hiplok bike lock is canvas-sleeved, hardened steel and folds up into a very compact ball. However, it does weigh upwards of 2kg, so being able to distribute that weight around your person is a nifty solution when not wanting it in your backpack or hanging from you bike.
It boasts a Sold Secure Silver rating and is a reasonable 850mm-long, so will accommodate plenty of bike and post, as well as waist sizes from 24 to 44in. Its usability makes it a popular choice for utility riders who stop often, but is also good for longer commutes.
