That old TV show The Avengers (not to be confused with the recent super blockbuster) started out with the introduction, “Extraordinary crimes against the people and the state have to be avenged by agents extraordinary.” This is what comes to mind when seeing the Granit Extreme 59, the latest addition to the Abus u-lock line. This is serious security but it comes at a hefty price – $279.99.
Obviously this isn’t meant for the junker you might ride to work, but for those who absolutely, positively need to leave their serious bike on the street unguarded this is truly serious protection. It is actually in the “motorcycle” category but the company clearly knows those with high-end road or mountain bikes will want to protect their bikes.
The locking mechanism is reportedly certified Sold Secure Gold. So can you really put a price on that?
