The Litelok Silver uses patented ‘Boaflexicore’ material

High-tech Welsh bike lock maker Litelok is crowdfunding on Kickstarter in a bid to deliver the "world’s lightest" secure bike lock.

Designed by CEO professor Neil Barron, the Litelok Silver uses patented ‘Boaflexicore’ material.

As well as being lightweight, starting from only 630g, the bike lock makers has said Litelok Silver is flexible, wearable, joinable, rattle-proof, easy to use and comes in three different lengths.

It’s described as a premium, durable, bike lock range that has been engineered for security using high grade materials and hardened aerospace-grade steel alloy.

The locks can reportedly withstand two tonnes of force and have also undergone intensive, custom, torsion testing, conducted by professor Stephen Brown, head of engineering at Swansea University.

Litelok has also partnered with Yellow Jersey to offer worldwide theft protection for bikes, so long as they’ve been secured by one of its locks.

All Liteloks are made in a high-tech factory in Wales.
