Seatylock has created what it claims is the World’s Strongest Folding Bicycle Lock. Foldylock Forever is the first folding bike lock ever to be awarded the Gold Sold Secure rating, a rating often required by bike insurance companies.
Foldylock Forever 90 Bike Lock
The standout feature of the Foldylock Forever is its Gold Sold Secure rating. Other folding bike locks have been awarded the Bronze and Silver ratings previously, but this is the very first to be strong enough to satisfy the requirements for the Gold rating. The patented 6.5mm riveted joints are responsible for the robustness. On top of that, it also gets Ice Spray Certification, meaning it can’t be frozen and then shattered.
Beyond that, the Foldylock Forever boasts much the same advantages as any other folding lock design, primarily its ability to pack down small making it easier to transport; either in your pack or attached to the bike itself via standard bottle bosses.
The Foldylock Forever is pretty large. When packed down, it’s 6.9cm wide, 25cm long, and 7.7cm deep. Fully extended, it has a circumference of 90cm, so should be long enough to secure the frame and wheel to a bicycle stand in most cases. The stainless steel arms are rust-resistant while the plastic coverings are UV-protected.
We don’t have a price on this one yet. Seatylock is due to launch a Kickstarter campaign this month to fund production.
