We are often asked by people what makes Litelok so different from other security products on the market, so we have put together a list of answers that prove Litelok is the best choice for any Motorcyclist.
How is Litelok Gold Moto different from a chain?
Chain locks are used by a large portion of motorcyclists who wish to secure their bikes when travelling. They are strong and flexible, but they are also very heavy. Litelok offers a radically lighter alternative to chains as they are engineered to the highest level from a patented, lightweight material called Boaflexicore. Because of this, Liteloks are able to offer the high level of security that chains can provide, whilst being considerably lighter. Plus, they’re Made in Britain, at our HQ in Swansea, Wales.
The challenge with using a chain is that often a proportion of them when secured rest on the ground - leaving it open to strike attacks. In comparison, Litelok's are flexible yet maintain their shape. The innovation of the Boaflexicore strap itself, has been tested to Sold Secure Gold Motorcycle standard, and has excellent resistance against bolt croppers, crowbars, and strike attacks.
