Chances are if you care about your bike you have a lock for it. Thieves often use angle grinders to cut through locks and Hiplok has a new lock designed to help make this much harder to defeat. Details inside from Hiplok.
Hiplok D1000 – The Future Of Mobile Security
In a Category of Its Own: The First Portable Anti-Angle Grinder Bike Lock
Hiplok Introduces The D1000
The weapon of choice for the professional bicycle and motorcycle thief is the angle grinder – a motorized hand tool that can cut through any lock, no matter how big, how heavy, or how expensive. Until now, this fundamental problem has been largely ignored by the security industry as it has seemed too difficult to solve.
The D1000 from Hiplok is the world’s first truly portable bike lock to resist angle-grinder attacks. The Hiplok D1000 uses advanced material technology never before used in bicycle or motorcycle locks.
This includes the use of Ferosafe, a composite graphene material that effectively resists high power angle grinders due to its unique chemical and physical properties. The application of Ferosafe within the D1000’s patent-pending design results in a lightweight, mobile bicycle lock that can be used in the same way as any other classic U Lock, but with anti-cut properties that are unrivaled.
Independently tested and carrying the ultimate Sold Secure Diamond rating for bicycles and motorcycles, D1000 also stands up to all other traditional attack methods. Like all Hiplok D-locks, its anti-rotation double locking tabs mean a thief would need to cut through both sides to steal your bike.
The D1000 is also available with an optional Carry Pouch, which allows the D1000 to be carried on the bike (on the handlebars or pannier rack), or the waist via the integrated belt loops. Ushering in a new era of mobile security, the D1000 is the ultimate peace of mind solution for your bike or motorcycle.
Hiplok is launching via Kickstarter campaign to bring the D1000 to cyclists and motorcyclists with delivery in early 2022, but production is already underway, and advance media samples are available upon request. The link below will go live along with the landing page on Hiplok
