Kryptonite S10 S Folding LockGET IT
Do you remember in 2020 when the racks at your local bike shop were empty? Between the supply issues out of Asia and the fact that everyone was just dying to get out a ride a bike somewhere—anywhere—retailers couldn’t keep a bike in the shop for five minutes. To some degree, the industry has not caught up and even used bikes are valuable. That also means that bike theft is up. And the 610 S from Kryptonite gives peace of mind most places that you lock up.
Kryptonite named it such because they consider it a “6 out of 10” rating on a scale of “here, take my rusty old bike, this lock is just for looks,” to “I have no choice but to leave my new Pinarello F10 on that sketchy access road by the airport for three days.” For super security, they have items with names like the New York Legend Chain. Probably don’t need to say much more.
But for affordably securing your beach cruiser at the local surf break, heading across campus or dinner at the local brew pub, the 610 is enough to deter the casual thief. The 610 is a foldable lock of 5mm hardened steel links, with double rubber coating that protects your bike. And it also includes a tight click transport bracket that fits to your frame. And at 2.65 pounds, it won’t weigh you down, although you could probably use it to crack anyone trying to steal your bike.—Jon Coen, Men’s Journal contributor
