Leaving your expensive E-Bike at the supermarket, or outside university requires a means to secure your E-Bike. What you need is a sturdy lock, and there’s lots of options available. As part of our Urban Special we’d like to present some products that offer some extra features on top of just being locks.

Modern Locks do more than just secure your bike

Along with bags and clothes there’s a whole range of other things that are important when riding in the city. An obvious issue we’re all aware of: theft. We’ve chosen a few locks that we will present to you here.

A 100% theft-proof lock simply doesn’t exist – but you can protect your E-Bike by using a quality lock and dissuading any chancers, as well as making it more difficult for a more dedicated thief. It’s important that you are clear on the risks of leaving your bike unattended. When we’re riding in town and want to leave our E-Bike somewhere we always consider the following:

  • Where will I be leaving my E-Bike?
  • How long will it be there unattended?
  • How much is my E-Bike worth?

When you take the time to think about it, you’ll no doubt be a lot more interested in what lock you need to protect your E-Bike when you leave it alone.

Opinion @eMTB-News.de

Protecting your E-Bike from thieves is essential if you’re going to leave it anywhere. Locks need to be solid and secure, but shouldn’t damage your precious E-Bike or be too much of a hassle to carry with you. It’s useless having a super secure lock that is so heavy that you don’t take it with you. That’s why we particularly like the Hiplok V1.50, that can easily be carried as a belt. Great idea – thanks Hiplok!

Your E-Bike will never be 100% secure when you lock it, but the locks we’ve presented here will make it harder to vanish away whilst you go and grab your groceries.

If you need to leave your E-Bike somewhere, what lock do you use to secure it?
