We’ve seen folding bikes and even folding bike helmets, but the new Abus Bordo 6000 Ecolution is a bike lock that folds up. As with prior models from Abus, the lock can fold into a compact package that can be mounted on the bike or stashed in a pack. The lock unfolds via a series of riveted links making for a variety of locking configurations.
The Bordo line is available in a range of security levels, but the Bordo 6000 Ecolution is designed to be recycled at the end of its life. That’s an odd twist for a product, especially one that most users would want to last forever. Some reviews also note that because it is easy to break down to be recycled it could be all too easy to break when it should be protecting the bike.
But for those who tend to only lock the bike such as when stopping to get a coffee or another quick jump off the bike, and don’t want the hassle of a larger bike this one could be worth considering.
