OTTO Design Works have released their new OTTOLOCK Sidekick Compact U-Lock, a lightweight secure bicycle lock convenient for the cycle commuter. The bike lock is a keyed 12mm double shackle design. For additional security, it is on offer as a bundle with OTTO’s 30″ cinch lock until 26th May.

The OTTOLOCK Sidekick Compact U-LOCK, also known as a D-Lock, is a silicone-coated lightweight bike lock for everyday use. Weighing a claimed 750g, it is 150g lighter and 240g lighter than the ABUS and Vie Velo ones I have lying around out back, respectively – both keyed silicone-coated bike U-Locks of a similar design.

It is a compact design measuring 2.75” x 5.75” (7cm x 14.5cm), capable of locking a single tube to a post or railing. The Sidekick Compact U-Lock is considered a medium security bike lock, with its double-shackle 12mm hardened steel design and anti-rotation deadbolt.

If you’re like me and can’t be trusted to keep your bike lock keys safe (I once had to saw open a D-Lock to free my bicycle), you might want to consider something a bit “smarter”. The BenjiLock by Hampton is one such bike lock, unlocked by your fingerprint.

OTTOLOCK Cinch Bicycle Lock

OTTO Design Works also offer a Cinch bicycle lock. This is designed for quick stops and protecting against opportunity theft. The smallest cinch lock at 18″ long weighs a claimed 145g. It coils to a compact 3 inch diameter, so should be pretty convenient to carry around.

The OTTOLOCK Combination Lock is available in black, yellow and orange colorways, in 18″, 30″ and 60″ lengths. It is said to be super durable, finished with a chip-resistant Cerakote paint and Santoprene plastic that will not scuff. Reset it with a keyless combination when you forget your digits.

Pricing & Availability

The OTTOLOCK Cinch is not a replacement for a U-Lock. For maximum bike security you should use a redundant locking method with both a U-Lock and a secondary lock. Until 26th May, OTTO are offering customers a bundle including the new OTTOLOCK Sidekick Compact U-Lock with the 30″ Cinch lock for a reduced price of $50, as compared to the usual $80 price tag.
