About Abus locks
While bulky, the brand Abus signals to any thief that a bike adorned with its locks is by no means easy prey.
Abus began in 1924, founded by August Bremicker and his sons after they started making padlocks in their basement at home. From a successfully marketed padlock it was not long before the brand branched out into bicycle locks. Abus bicycle locks are available today in numerous variants, security levels, colours and price ranges, with combination locks or keys.
300,000 bicycle thefts are reported in Australia every year, and the number of unreported cases is probably considerably higher. About ten per cent of these thefts are solved; the rest of the bikes simply disappear, and the thieves are never identified. So that you don't have the misfortune of finding your bike in these statistics, you should take precautions.
Important purchase information
Experts recommend 10 per cent of the bicycle purchase price in safety technology. But if we're honest, regardless the cost of your ride, a secure lock is a worthwhile investment, because it's not just expensive bikes that are stolen and then sold. Old or cheap bicycles that were not or insufficiently secured are often taken along in order to get from A to B, and when they arrive at B they are left lying around or disposed of.
If you want to be on the safe side, you should park your bike within sight and secure it with two locks. One should connect the rear wheel to the frame, and the other should connect the frame to an immovable object such as a fence or street lamp. With the combination set consisting of the U-lock 32/150HB230+USH32 and the cable lock Cobra 10/140, with which a common key fits, Abus offers exactly the right system.
To make it as difficult as possible for thieves, it is also advisable to lock the bike to a large, immovable object or to lock several bikes together. In addition, Abus locks with a key are harder to pick than bicycle locks with a number combination.
Abus locks offer top products for all common types of bicycle locks, such as folding locks, U-locks, armoured cable and chain locks, frame locks and spiral cable locks. There is no uniform assessment of the security level of bicycle locks, so Abus has created its own system. The locks are divided into 15 security levels, helping buyers easily classify each lock and the level of protection they provide.
Read on below for an overview of the different locks from the Abus range.
Abus spiral cable locks
Then entry level for bike locks and for the Abus range are spiral cable locks. With security level 3, the Abus Primo is intended for cases where a thief should be prevented from stealing a means of transport that is readily available, because you should also secure a bike that is worth reselling.
Abus frame locks
Frame locks like the Abus Shield or the Abus Tectic are permanently attached, so you always have them with you. In terms of security, they take it up to level 9, but you should lock a valuable bike with another lock, preferably one that allows you to lock the bike to an object.
Abus chain locks
How secure a chain lock essentially depends on the thickness of the chain. The thicker and heavier the chain, the heavier the equipment the thief must have with him. All Abus chain locks are covered with a textile tube that protects the bike from scratches. These textile coats allow an extra wide range of designs, from neon colours to pink bike locks or rocket prints - there is a bike lock for every taste in the range. Depending on the chain and the lock used, the Abus chain bike locks offer security levels 2 to 6.
Abus cable locks
In the middle field, at least as far as security is concerned, are the Abus Cable locks. The Cetero lock gets it to Level 8, Key Combo to 4, Primo Color to 3. They are basic security, but are uncomplicated to handle, the weight remains manageable, the longer models can easily secure several bicycles.
Abus folding locks
Abus rates most of its folding locks with security level 15, and rightly so. You can find them all under the name Bordo. In order to get the foldable steel rods small, a thief has to be really serious and carry heavy tools with them. In contrast to other locks, however, folding locks can only be bent in one direction; for example, wrapping them around the seat post could be difficult. That's why there are practical frame mounts that store your Bordo safely while you pedal. A special feature on the market is the Bordo Alarm, which emits a 100 dB alarm sound when there is movement.
A solid steel shackle locked with a bolt with a high-quality locking cylinder - no wonder that Abus U- locks offer security levels 9 to 15. In addition, padlocks are expressly recommended by the police and insurance companies. So if you call a high-quality bike your own, it is perfectly secured to a fixed object with an Abus U-lock.
Small lock, big effect - Nut Fix
A bicycle whose saddle or front wheel has been stolen is almost as annoying as a bike that has disappeared completely. With Nut Fix , Abus has brought a unique development onto the market that can prevent exactly that. Nut Fix caps secure the nuts that fix saddles or wheels and can only be opened when the bike is laid on its side. So if your bike is locked to a fixed object with an unpickable lock and cannot be laid on its side, the saddle and wheels are also secure.

Abus Locks for Sale
Abus is a German locks and security products manufacturer. In fact, it’s one of the best known names in the industry. Part of its range includes cycle locks.
The company was founded in 1924 making padlocks. Its first bicycle-specific lock was produced in 1958. The lock was circular to fit around the bike's frame, and was opened with a combination. The company's first u-lock, one of the most common types of bicycle lock available today, was made in 1971.
Today the range is more extensive and includes the latest in security technology and design features. These make Abus locks more secure but also more user friendly for the modern cyclist. The famous u-lock is still part of the range.
You can find an extensive selection from the Abus locks range on Bike Exchange.
Abus Locks Product Range
Abus offers a range of different locks to suit the varying needs of cyclists. They combine both security and deterrent characteristics.
• Cable locks - flexible and lightweight locks that are bent into shape to secure the bike. Both combination lock and key options are available.
• Coil cable locks - this range of locks is similar to the cable locks range, except the cable is longer. This makes it easier to secure bikes where access is difficult.
• Folding locks - this range of locks offers high levels of security. The unique design means the lock folds in on itself to make carrying easy. It then folds out to secure the bike.
• Frame locks - locks that prevent bikes from being used. The bike is not attached to anything, so this type of lock doesn’t prevent theft, but they are useful devices in many low-risk situations.
• Holders - one of the biggest problems that cyclists face with securing their bike is carrying the lock around with them. They look unsightly when fixed under the seat and can damage the bike. That usually means a bag that either has to be carried or fixed to the bike. This range of lock holders offers an alternative. There are options for all Abus locks, and they are designed specifically to be used on bikes.
• Lock chain combinations - using the traditional chain and lock, but with modern security features built in. This includes high strength chains that are protected, plus options for either key or combination locks.
• Special locks - this range includes options designed for the various situations and locations that cyclists face every day. It offers solutions where normal bike locks don't work.
• Steel-O-Flex - a cable lock made from toughened steel. This makes the lock even more secure.
• U-Locks - the traditional u-lock design with modern components and design features. This type of lock is still regarded by many as being the best way to secure a bike.
• Anchors - that can be attacked to walls or floors. They are for cyclists who don't have a good fixing point to secure their bike at home.
