It happens all the time on my road rides. "Who's going to stay with the bikes?" You've done it too. A long training ride. The group stops for coffee or a break and everybody looks around for the best place to lean the bikes and you wonder, "will we be able to see them from inside?" Maybe you try "locking" your bike with your helmet straps.

 

We've got a lock for that! The Bordo Lite - and coming in just under 650 grams it's light enough to put in a jersey pocket. This is not a high-security lock (not recommended for long-term or urban locking) but it is PERFECT for long road rides, cyclocross races and mountain bike races. Pull the lock out of your jersey pocket, lock-up your bike and relax and enjoy your mid-ride coffee or post-ride beer!

 

See how great it looks in the pockets of the awesome TWENTY16 Professional Women's Cycling Team!

The latest in ABUS's award winning Bordo lock line-up, the new uGrip Bordo 5700 is made in Germany from high-quality steel and designed for lower theft risk locking needs. It comes in an array of bright colors that making locking fun. The rattle free carrying case mounts quickly to the bike via the Velcro straps or can be screwed directly into the bottle cage mounts.

 

A one-touch button frees the lock from its case and a color-coded link and lock body make it simpler than ever to identify the locking side of this lock. The "snap-closure" makes locking and unlocking breeze.

 

The uGrip Bordo 5700 was named a 2014 Red Dot Design Award winner in the mobile category for it's beautiful design, function and form.

In 2014 ABUS celebrates its 90th anniversary. Over the past 90 years ABUS has relied on high quality materials, custom tooling, innovation and engineering in its quest to produce the best locks in the world. Last December PinkBike joined us in our German factories for a tour of the factories and trip through ABUS history to get a greater understanding of what sets the ABUS brand apart.
