kryptonite-Keeper-folding-bicycle-lock-1

There are several folding locks on the market, some that clip to the bike for transport, some lightweight titanium, and others that become part of the bike. But they all have one thing in common – they fold in a single plane, which means you need a certain angle of attack to use them.

The new Kryptonite Keeper changes the game by letting the pivot points rotate in three dimensions, making it easier to wiggle it through tight spots or convoluted bike racks. They’re all hardened steel links, keeping security up to snuff, and it comes in two versions depending on your needs, both about 100cm long…

The Keeper 695 is 95mm long and uses 6mm thick links, and the 810 is 100cm long and gets stronger 8mm thick sections. Both also get their lifetime warranty and Key Safe program, and the 810 adds a $500 Anti-Theft Protection Offer. Both come with a neoprene sleeve and frame mount.

I’ve never seen a company so adept at reinventing the lock (wheel).

Let me recommend a spoke lock. The potential is lucrative; if you have two 28-spoke wheels, that’s 56 locks!

In fact, these locks are not really new. They are developped and offered in Europe already by Axa Stenman:

As Kryptonite and Axa are owned by the same security items company for one year now, it was just a question of time until they try to benefit of synergies
