Launching today at Eurobike are two new additions to the HipLok brand (see our previous review of their chain here).  First up is their take on the traditional U-Lock (or D-Lock depending on where you are from).  The Hiplok trick here are two clips attached to the body of the lock that allow you to easily clip it onto a messenger bag strap, belt, or even your back pocket.  The slim profile lock is Sold Secure Silver certified.  It weighs in at 1000g.  It features a hardened steel body, nylon outer shell, and has a 13mm hardened steel shackle.  Retail pricing is set at £59.99 (about $93)

To accompany the new U-Lock, Hiplok has announced their Hiplok Pop cable lock.  Like the chain that preceded it, the Pop is a wearable lock, but is intended for lower security areas.  It would also make a great companion to the Hiplok D when used to secure your wheels.  It uses a clip system to hold it around your midsection while riding. It will be available in six colors to suit your personal style  It’s security risk is not certified, but simply label “Low Risk”, it fits up to a 42″ waist, weighs 400g, and is made from a 10mm plastic coated steel cable.  Retail for the Pop is £19.99 (about $31)

  1. Not even for a messenger it makes sense, wearing it in front is useless, wearing it in the back – we just put it in the belt/back pocket/behind the hipbag. So its useless.

What do you think?
