Stronger than a cable lock and lighter than a U-lock, the OTTOLOCK cinch lock is the latest way to lock up your bike. It's made of multiple layers of high-temper, 18-millimeter-wide stainless steel bands that have been coated in scratch-resistant santoprene and reinforced with cut-resistant Kevlar. Ideal for short stops, it’s flexible design makes it easy to work with and allows it to lock nearly anything—from skis to canoes and surfboards. It coils down to just 3 inches so you can throw it in your saddle bag, backpack, or pocket, while the three-dial combination lock means you don't have to worry about losing or misplacing your keys.
Note: This drop is for two locks. At checkout, you'll have your choice for each: the 18 inch lock in green (base model), the 30 inch lock in black (+ $8), or the 60 inch lock in orange (+ $16). Limited quantities available.
OTTO DesignWorks, based in Oregon, was founded in late 2014 by a small group of bicycle lovers, product innovators, and technical experts who wanted to create products to fulfill unmet needs of cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts.
The need was identified by professional cyclist Jacob Rathe, who experienced theft problems when stopping for breaks during training rides. The OTTO DesignWorks team spent about a year developing the cinch lock and the Kickstarter was launched on September 12th, 2016. With the help of enthusiastic supporters, OTTOLOCK reached the $50,000 goal in under 48 hours. In the end, OTTOLOCK’s Kickstarter raised an impressive total $352,425 with 4,000 backers.
