U-locks have gotten a bad wrap ever since the Bic Pen-Kryptonite debacle of the mid- 90s. Oh if only they had used the Abus style design. Technically speaking, modern U-locks should be considered one of the best options for locking up your steed. While not the lightest or most compact of designs, they are certainly one of the strongest.
As the name would imply, the U-Mini 40 is one of the smaller U-lock designs available. This makes it an ideal partner for riders looking for solid security in a somewhat smaller profile. The 14mm shackle double bolts into the body which makes securing the lock onto a frame an easy task. The main body is made of case hardened steel and sports a high quality lock cylinder, perfect for any level of anti-theft protection. The lock is coated with Abus’s soft touch silicone that will not damage your valued frame.
