"If you don’t fancy becoming another victim on the police bike theft database, there isn’t a better lock for you than the X1."October 2022
"It’s definitely the most secure bike lock I’ve ever tested. It manages this without being excessively heavy, bulky, massively expensive or incredibly unpractical, is indeed a BIG DEAL!"November 2022
"It destroys the most common type of grinder blade with a single cut and it requires two. LITELOK X1 is exceptional."November 2022
"Litelok’s tough coating makes mincemeat of angle grinders."November 2022

Armoured D-Lock for Motorcycles & Scooters
THE D-LOCK REIMAGINED
Barronium™, our new composite anti-grinder armour, is fused to a hardened fine-grain high-tensile steel core to provide protection against multiple tools attacks, including angle-grinders, bolt croppers, cable cutters, long bars, hammers, chisels and more.
X1 locks are finished with Quartz White retro-reflective vinyl strips along the lock shackle and on the X's at each end. These offer increased visibility of the lock to deter thieves and remind you it’s fitted. X protects the spot.
LIGHT & EASY TO CARRY
LITELOK X1 weighs just 1.7kg, far lighter than any motorcycle chain yet still offers Diamond level protection & angle grinder resistance. It’s also easily stored in your backpack or panniers when not in use.
The plant-based eco-rubber outer layer is sourced from 80% non-food grade crops, which dramatically reduces the amount of petrochemical plastic required in the manufacturing of our locks. Due to the nature of these materials, any waste generated during production can be recycled and re-used in our solar powered manufacturing facility in South Wales.
ANGLE GRINDER RESISTANT MOTORCYCLE D-LOCK
If you don't own an armoured D-lock then your bike is not protected against angle-grinders, which is increasingly becoming the tool of choice for bike thieves.
SOLD SECURE MOTORCYCLE DIAMOND D-LOCK - INDEPENDENTLY TESTED
X1 has been accredited to Sold Secure Motorcycle Diamond, Bicycle Diamond and also meets the ‘Police Preferred Specification’ of Secured by Design (SBD) providing the best deterrent for cyclists and motorcyclists looking to secure bikes, e-bikes and motorcycles.
Barronium™ is a fused composite armour that offers unparalleled angle grinder resistance without adding extra weight. It is a super hard ceramic composite material that repels angle grinder attacks and turns the grinder's energy and force in on itself. Continuous cutting wears down the grinder discs, batteries and ultimately the grinder motor itself.
MOTORBIKE Security Reimagined
Our aim is to re-imagine bike and motorcycle security by inventing the lightest, easiest-to-use and most secure locks on the planet. Using innovative materials, expert design engineering and cutting-edge technology in Britain, LITELOK X1 is the latest and most secure product to date from our portfolio of constantly developing portable anti-theft devices. We have truly reimagined the D-lock category.

Depending on the style of your wheel, the lock can be fitted through your spokes, through your spokes and disc, or even through the disc and hub itself. It can also be used around the wheel and tire itself on the front wheel of your motorbike.
X1’s can also be daisy chained together from a solid object or to another bike.

Our founder and CEO, Professor Neil Barron, supported by Innovate UK, worked closely with some of the world’s leading material scientists for over 5 years to develop Barronium™, our ground breaking angle grinder resistant technology.
LITELOK X1 is built with Barronium™, a patent-pending anti-angle grinder material that is applied as a permanently fused composite armour, providing maximum cut resistance and protection from angle grinder attacks. The Barronium™ layer repels angle grinder discs.
The X range comprises of three layers of protection:
1. A fine-grain, hardened high-tensile steel core providing inner strength against multiple tool attacks
2. Barronium™ anti-angle grinder armour, permanently fused to the core to repel angle grinder discs
3. A plant-based eco-rubber outer layer is soft to touch, so it won't damage your frame.
LITELOK X1 is sold with a 3 year warranty to provide peace of mind and covers mechanical or operational faults through normal usage. The warranty does not cover aesthetic wear and tear. It is important to register your lock and keys with us so that in the event that you lose your keys, replacements can be ordered.
Looks the part
So easy to use and hopefully the toe rags know how good it is and move on
D Ring lock
Quick to arrive, fits front wheel of T100, feels robust, better than a disc lock there is no risk of a Pringle on the disc.
It gives me confidence to park my ebike when going shopping
Really big,sturdy lock and it fits well my fat tyres(4inches).I definitely have more confidence parking my ebike when going shopping.After watching the video reviews of it I decided to buy it and I think it's a good investment to protect my ebike.One thing I found very important: when locking your bike,make sure it's locked against a strong,grinder resistant rack/post etc So far,very happy with my purchase,thank you.
Has it been tried on all makes of bike?
A little disappointed as will only fit through 1 spoke and will not fit through the rear wheel hub centre ad in both cases not wide enough, wondering if it has been checked on many bikes, don't think it has on a GS
Hi Roderick, Thanks for your purchase. We've tried it on various bikes from the likes of KTM, BMW, Kawasaki, Ducati etc. Each one was slightly different fitment but could be secured with an X1. With the GS, we'd recommend locking the front wheel with the X1. It will fit through the hub and both discs making it virtually impossible to attack or move the bike. ( have this bike personally and it fits great) The most recent review of x1 & X3 from Bennetts on YouTube gives some great tips on securing and fitments. Enjoy the lock and safe riding. Phil
