Hiplock has introduced the latest addition to its vast range of bike security solutions called the D1000, calling it “the weapon of choice for the professional bicycle and motorcycle thief is the angle grinder – a motorized hand tool that can cut through any lock, no matter how big, how heavy, or how expensive. Until now, this fundamental problem has been largely ignored by the security industry as it has seemed too difficult to solve.”
According to Hiplock, the D1000 is the world’s first truly portable bike lock to resist angle-grinder attacks, comprising advanced material technology never before used in a bicycle lock such as the use of Ferosafe, a composite graphene material that effectively resists high power angle grinders due to its unique chemical and physical properties, resulting in a lightweight, mobile bicycle lock that can be used in the same way as any other classic U Lock, but with anti-cut properties that are unrivaled. Moreover, like all Hiplok D-locks, its anti-rotation double locking tabs mean a thief would need to cut through both sides to steal your bike.
Additionally, the D1000 is also available with an optional Carry Pouch, which allows the D1000 to be carried on the bike (on the handlebars or pannier rack), or the waist via the integrated belt loops.
Hiplok has undertaken a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter, with goal of bringing the D1000 to market in early 2022.
