Litelok is the result of years of research, development, engineering and testing. In some of our tests we use machines to apply forces far greater than any human can achieve, with Liteloks meeting or exceeding industry standards.
U LOCK VS LITELOK GOLD - TORSION (TWISTING) TEST
In this test we compare a Litelok Gold against a U lock (also Gold rated). This torsion test rig has been developed with an engineering consultant and Swansea University College of Engineering - Prof Stephen Brown (Head of Engineering), Prof Nick Lavery and Dr Adam Philo.
As you can see, Litelok Gold performs much better than a U/D lock against this type of attack.
MATTHEW ‘PRITCH’ PRITCHARD VS LITELOK GOLD
We asked Matthew ‘Pritch’ Pritchard, former MTV star of Dirty Sanchez, and ironman athlete, to try to break a single Litelok Gold with common theft tools. He couldn’t do it! Watch the video.
ENGINEER VS LITELOK GOLD
We asked one of our engineers to attack a single Litelok Gold with a range of common theft tools consecutively to show it can withstand sustained attack. The tools included bolt croppers, a hacksaw, freeze spray, and a cordless drill.
U LOCK VS LITELOK SILVER - TORSION (TWISTING) TEST
In this test we compare a Litelok Flexi-U Silver against a rigid U-lock (also Silver rated). As you can see, the flexibility of the Litelok means that as the bar turns, energy builds up within the boaflexicore material and the resistance increases, making it close to impossible to break in a real-life situation.
REAL BIKE THIEVES VS LITELOK
We have conducted extensive testing on our Liteloks, but Litelok also has proven real world success. This is genuine CCTV footage of bike thieves in London attempting to break a Litelok to steal a bike.
