Abus Bordo 6100 Folding Lock Review

A German manufacturer and a leader in the industry, Abus has been producing security items and solutions since 1924. All products are meticulously crafted and relentlessly tested for optimum performance and endurance. Comprised of only the highest quality of materials, built to endure, and easy to use, the Abus lock provides superior security, convenience, and quality.

Abus was founded on strong values and the company continues to maintain a high code of ethics and principles to this day. Customer, partner, and client satisfaction is a main priority and for over 85 years, the organization has been providing a level of protection that has deemed their name synonymous with security.

The Abus Bordo 6100 Folding Lock is compact, lightweight, and versatile. Excellent for keeping your bike safe, the lock offers a number of different locking options and provides medium to high security for your item.

The Abus lock folds down quickly and easily and its small and lightweight size make it a breeze to carry. Its foldable design also makes it attach tightly and securely to the bike frame without rattling, coming loose, or even falling off. It includes a sturdy frame mount that is covered in a protective layer of rubber and can be attached in two different ways. You can fasten it with screws or velcro straps. Both methods for attachment are simple and provide a super tight fit against the bicycle frame.

Simple to use and convenient, the Abus folding lock allows you to secure your bike to a vast array of objects. It is easy to see why the Abus Bordo has become one of the most popular folding locks on the market.

One of its downfalls is the level of security it provides against high risk situations. Offering medium security, a pair of 30” bolt cutters would probably cut through the 5 mm bars; however, it provides more than sufficient security for low and medium risks. The pins that fasten the links together can also be an area of weakness as well. Another setback is that, although simple to use, some may find it a bit tricky to operate.
