The widest of its kind, this lock can accommodate extra big bike frames such as those on e-bikes. It’s made out of:

This lock is also well designed as to keep your bike protected:
- Its plastic coating keeps the frame of your bike safe and protected against scratches or damage, and
- It makes the lock resistant against the weather and the elements!
