TiGr BLUE Mini+ review

Lightweight and stylish, but a Bronze Sold Secure rating does limit its range of use

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The TiGr BLUE Mini+ is perhaps the most elegant bike lock out there. It is lightweight, has a straightforward attaching system and is easy to use. The main downside is the Sold Secure Bronze rating which makes it difficult to use as pretty much every insurer will require a Sold Secure Silver or Gold.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
