LiteLock highly recommend the Flexi-O 52cm and the Flexi-U Regular as they can fit through most e-scooter wheels and frames.
The issue with most bike locks is that while bikes are getting lighter and lighter, secure locks are getting heavier and heavier. That’s because it’s the thickness of the metal chains and tubes that provides the additional security, however it also makes them cumbersome, heavy and impractical.
Professor Neil Barron and his team harnessed the unique security properties of multiple innovative, lightweight materials to create a composite strap called Boaflexicore®. Each layer provides additional security, meaning that it can withstand sustained attack to the highest level from tools like bolt croppers and hacksaws.
Neil Barron is an industrial design graduate from the Royal College of Art, London with over 30 years of professional experience formerly as a qualified Aeronautical Engineer (Rolls-Royce aero engines) and latterly as an industrial designer and innovator.
He founded Gusto, a design and innovation consultancy, and through it has worked with a number of diverse clients including Boots, E.ON, Intel, Lego, The Body Shop and Unilever on the design and development of award winning products for international markets.
