The Best Folding Bike Locks

So, you’re wondering which is the best folding bike lock. When it comes to folding bike locks, there aren’t many models that have received a Sold Secure rating.

Throughout this short article, I’ll talk you through the best quality and most secure folding bike locks on the market. I’ll aslo help you decide which folding works best for you.

Currently, as it stands there isn’t a huge selection of folding bike locks available. This is mainly because folding locks are still a relatively new concept.

There are both advantages and disadvantages of using a folding bike lock, but overall, the pros do outweigh the cons. I use one of the folding bike locks I’ve recommended below almost daily and have never had an issue with it!

Reasons to Use a Folding Bike Lock

Cyclists choose to use folding bike locks for a number of reasons. Folding bike locks have quickly become a popular choice within the cycling community because of their practical, compact folding design. 

No cyclist wants to be burdened by a bulky, heavy lock. Heavy locks are awkward to transport, and even if you were to stow one away in your rucksack, it’s likely to be uncomfortable.

Folding bike locks can easily be attached to your bike's frame, to provide convinient and secure transport.

The best folding bike locks come with a carry case/mount that allows you to easily attach and transport your folding lock, whilst cycling. Some mounts are better than others and I’ve made sure to comment on the quality of each lock’s mounting system below.

Folding bike locks give you the ability to secure your bike to almost anything. If you’re using a D lock to secure your bike, it’s likely that from time to time you’ll encounter an immovable object too large to secure your bike to. Simply because the solid metal shackle is just too narrow.

D lock's shackle too small to fit around lampost, the best folding bike locks
Smaller shackles do increase a D lock's security, but can also be very inconvenient!

With folding bike locks, shackle space isn’t an issue. This is because each plate is secured with a rotating rivet that allows the lock to easily fold around larger objects.

The best folding bike lock weighs less than the best D lock and gives you more locking room. Compared to the majority of D locks, folding bike locks offer a small increase in locking room. The difference is marginal, but can be very helpful at times!

Disadvantages of Using a Folding Bike Lock

Apart from not having a huge selection to choose from there aren’t many significant disadvantages of using a folding bike lock.  

If you haven’t used a folding bike lock before, it may take some time to get used to operating one. Most folding locks have a similar but slightly different design, which means their operation is not as straightforward as a classic D lock.

Moving parts require maintenance, which means folding locks require slightly more attention than D locks do. Every bike lock however, should be kept clean and given regular maintenance to stop parts deteriorating, and to prevent your bike lock from jamming.

Due to their compact design, folding bike lock’s plates are not as thick as the shackle of a D lock. This means, most of the time a folding lock won’t offer the same level of security as a D lock with the same Sold Secure rating. 

The practical features that a folding lock offers, easily makes up for their few disadvantages. Next, we need to find out which folding bike lock will work best for you…

How to Choose a Folding Bike Lock

Before I show you the best folding bike locks we’ll need to find out which security level you require. 

Sold Secure are a non-profit organisation, set up by the Master Locksmiths Association to test and review the security of different security products. For bicycles, the three security ratings available are bronze, silver and gold. 

    • Bronze Sold Secure bike locks only offer defence against opportunist thieves. Bronze rated locks have passed testing, but have gained the lowest rating and shouldn’t be used to secure your bike for long periods.
    • Silver Sold Secure bicycle locks offer ‘a compromise between security and cost’. Silver is the next level up from bronze and will provide more security for your bicycle.  
    • Gold Sold Secure rated bike locks are the best of the best. This is the highest security level and therefore the most secure option when it comes to bicycle security. These locks are suitable for use in ‘high risk’ areas. 
When purchasing a new bike lock keep an eye out for these Sold Secure rating badges. We'll decide below which rating suits you best!

Selecting Which Security Level Suits You Best

So now that you know about the security ratings, you’ll need to find out which rating suits you and your bike the best. Using the flow diagram below you’ll be able to work out which Sold Secure rating you require. 

You’ll notice that I don’t mention Sold Secure Bronze. This is simply because bronze rated locks only ‘offer protection from opportunist thieves’. This quite simply isn’t a suitable level of protection for any bike. 

A diagram explaining which sold secure rating cyclists require.
Using this flow diagram you should be able to work out which security rating you require. I recommend you take note of this, but feel free to choose the rating you want.

So now you’ve decided which sold secure rating you require we can move onto the best folding bike locks. As I’ve already covered, there aren’t many Sold Secure rated folding locks available, so your choice is fairly limited.

As long as you choose the right security rating for your circumstances, any of these folding locks will do you proud. These are the best folding bike locks available. Below you’ll find a detailed breakdown of each folding bike lock, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. 

Sold Secure Silver Folding Locks

 

ABUS Bordo Alarm 6000A

The ABUS Bordo Alarm begins a new era of bicycle security. I’m not aware of another folding lock on the market that offers an alarm feature. This 100dB alarm greatly adds to the security of this impressive folding lock.

The Bordo Alarm folding bike lock is 35″ (90cm) long and provides 10.1″ x 4.65″ (25.8cm x 11.8cm) of usable locking space. The 5mm metal plates that this folding lock use are made from specially hardened steel and provide great resistance to cutting, prying and freezing attacks.

ABUS Bordo Alarm 6000A vs Foldylock Compact shackle size
The ABUS Bordo Alarm has the largest shackle area of the four folding locks covered in the article. But it is also the largest when folded away.

ABUS gave this lock 10/15 on their security scale, which lands this lock in the lower end of their ‘Maximum Security’ category. The Bordo Alarm received the Sold Secure Silver rating and provides a compromise between security and cost. 

If someone was to fiddle with your bike or this folding lock whilst it was in use, it would let off a short pre-alarm warning. Normally this will be enough to startle thieves and scare them off. However, if they were to ignore the pre-alarm warning, they would be met with a 100dB sharp acoustic alarm. 

When I tested the alarm feature myself, I didn’t find it deafening, but it is definitely very loud. The alarm is easily loud enough to grab people’s attention, which increases the likelihood of thieves being caught. The chances are thieves will be startled by the loud alarm and will target a less secure bike.

Bordo Alarm 6000A review
To mount the ABUS Alarm you'll need your own Allen key (hex key), but apart from this, everything you need is included in the box.

The mount that comes with the Bordo Alarm 6000A is secure and uses two spring-loaded clips to keep the lock in place whilst in transport. Mounting instructions are supplied, which are fairly straightforward to follow.  

The mount that’s supplied with the Bordo Alarm is easily the best to operate. Simply press on the spring-loaded clips to both remove and secure your folding lock. Check the video below to see just how easy this is. You can also secure this lock to the drinks bottle mount of your bike, or to the seat tube if needed.

When cycling the mount isn’t completely silent, and if you listen carefully you can hear the lock quietly rattling around. It’s really nothing that will affect usage, but I’m aware some people would prefer a silent ride. 

This lock comes with two coded keys, which you can order replacements for. You can also order this bike lock to be ‘keyed alike’ to other ABUS locks, which is handy if you already use ABUS security products. 

This folding bike lock and it’s mount weigh 3.28lb (1.49kg) together and could easily be carried in a rucksack if preferred. This is slightly heavier than the Foldylock featured below, but with the impressive alarm feature this lock was always going to weigh slightly more.

All in all, a great choice of folding bike lock. The Bordo 6000A uses a loud, high pitch alarm system, that should give you extra peace of mind whilst leaving your bike unattended. 

If you’re considering this folding lock, take a look at the Sold Secure Gold folding locks below, these locks retail at a very similar price. Definitely worth a look. 

Key Benefits:

  • Loud alarm scares thieves
  • Sold Secure Silver (bicycle) rating
  • Large locking area
  • Specially hardened steel plates
  • Fantastic mounting system
  • Competitively priced 

Seatylock – Foldylock Compact

The Foldylock Compact is another genius invention from the team at Seatylock. I was pleasantly surprised by the impressive build quality of the Foldylock. 

The Foldylock Compact is 33.4″ (85cm) long and provides 9.4″ x 4.5″ (24cm x 11.5cm) of locking space for your bike. This means the Bordo Alarm Provides slightly more locking space than the Foldylock.

I actually found that the extra locking space the Bordo Alarm offers isn’t necessary. I was able to secure both of my wheels and my bike’s frame using the Foldylock without any issues. Also, because the shackle is slightly smaller it left considerably less room for thieves to attempt to pry or twist the Foldylock open.

Foldylock Compact secured to bike
The Foldylock Compact provided a secure, snug fit around both of my bike's wheels and it's frame.
The Litelok on its own weighs 2.2lb (1kg) this is the lightest Sold Secure Silver folding bike lock. For a lock of its weight, the Foldylock Compact provides incredible security. It’s 5mm hardened steel links are the same thickness as the Abus Bordo Alarm’s and provide resistance from all forms of attack, including bolt cutters.
 
The packaging of the Foldylock Compact boasts ‘silent ride’ which I was eager to put to the test. The Foldylock’s mounting cage was very easy to attach to my bike’s water bottle mount. You receive two screws in the box and even the allen key to tighten them with! Impressive.
 
Just as it says on the box, the Folylock Compact stays completely silent whilst riding. No rattling whatsoever. Bonus points for those who (like me) prefer a silent ride. The mount is made from super lightweight hardened plastic and weighs roughly 3.2oz (100g). This means the Foldylock and it’s mount only weigh a  2.43lb (1.1kg). Crazy lightweight!
 

If you use your water bottle mount for a bottle holder, don’t worry. Instead, you can use the rubber-lined velcro straps to secure the mount to your bike’s frame.

Foldylock compact folding lock mounting device
Using the strap mount system you're able to secure the Foldylock almost anywhere on your bike. All of the best folding locks come with straps for mounting.
The plastic coating that encapsulates the Foldylock’s steel links, prevents this folding lock scratching your bike’s paintwork. This hard layer of plastic also protects the Foldylock from unwanted wear and tear and will keep it rust-free. 
 

Seatylock rated this folding bike lock at 14/18 on their security scale, which puts it in their silver category. The Compact is Sold Secure Silver rated and probably sits in the upper half of this category when compared to other Sold Secure Silver bike locks

Because the Foldylock’s plates are only 5mm thick, it provides slightly less protection than a Sold Secure Silver rated D lock. However, due to its flexible shackle, you’re able to sure your bike to many more objects than a D lock would be able to.

Another fantastic choice of lock, easily earning its place amongst the best folding bike locks. 

Key Benefits:

  • Rattle free silent mount
  • Sold Secure Silver (bicycle) rating
  • Super lightweight 2.4lb (1.1kg)
  • Anti-scratch casing
  • Perfect for commuting
  • Hardened steel plates

The Best Folding Bike Lock – Sold Secure Silver

 

Choosing between the Bordo Alarm and the Foldylock Compact is a hard decision. 

The ABUS Bordo Alarm 6000A features an impressive alarm, that will scare most thieves away, or even better, get them caught. I was easily able to secure both of my bike’s wheels and frame using this folding lock and the mount system, once attached to your bike is seriously impressive. 

The Foldylock Compact is a great example of precision engineering. The lock feels rock solid, it’s mount is silent when riding, and for me it provided the perfect amount of locking space. The cylinder of the Foldylock is almost impossible to pick and I really struggled to find any issues with this folding bike lock. 

If I had to choose between the two, I’d choose the Foldylock. However, there really isn’t much between these seriously impressive folding locks.

Sold Secure Gold Folding Bike Locks

 

ABUS Bordo Granit XPlus 6500

The ABUS Bordo 6500 is ABUS’ most secure folding bike lock yet. This impressive lock received 15/15 on ABUS’ security scale, which shows it’s much more secure than the Bordo 6000 despite being in the same ‘maximum security’ category. 

The Granit XPlus received the prestigious Sold Secure Gold Bicycle rating and is one of the only two folding bike locks to receive this accolade. It’s Sold Secure Gold rating means the ABUS XPlus 6500 is suitable for use in high-risk areas.

The Bordo Granit is slightly heavier than the Sold Secure Silver folding locks, weighing in at 3.48lb (1.58kg) on its own and 3.79lb (1.72kg) when weighed together with it’s mount. This extra weight comes from the thicker 5.5mm specially hardened steel plates that the Bordo Granit utilises. This extra plate thickness makes the XPlus much more resistant to bolt cutter attacks than the Sold Secure Silver folding locks shown above. 

The Bordo Granit 6500 is 0.5mm thicker than the silver rated folding locks. It may not sound like much, but you can see the difference in this comparison. Extra thickness = Extra security.

When unfolded, the Bordo Granit provides 8.9″ x 3.9″  (22.6cm x 10cm) of locking room, making this lock slightly smaller than the Sold Secure Silver folding locks. However, the difference in size is small and the reduced size adds to this lock’s ability to resist twisting and prying attacks.

This lock feels super sturdy and it functions seamlessly. When I first started using this lock I was impressed with how much time and effort had been put into it’s design. The complete outer shell of the ABUS Bordo Granit 6500 is lined with a soft, yet durable rubber coating which eliminates the chances of this lock scratching your bike. 

ABUS Bordo Granit XPlus 6500 mount and lock
The tough rubber coating on the outside of the XPlus provides fantastic protection for your bike's paintwork and prevents the lock from the elements!

The mount that you receive with this folding bike lock is easy to operate and attaching it to your bike is very straightforward. This lock can be mounted using either the velcro straps (included in box) or using your bike’s water bottle mount, which tends to be more secure.

Two keys are supplied with the Granit XPlus, one of which features a bring LED light for operation in the dark. This is the only lock in this list of the best folding bike locks that has this useful feature, which can save you from scrambling around in the dark!

ABUS LED Key Torch
Using ABUS' bright LED key fob I was able to effortlessly lock and unlock my Bordo Granit XPlus.

Unlike the Foldylock Compact, you don’t receive any screws to mount the Bordo Granit with. It’s likely however, that your bike will already have the screws in place but it’s worth checking in case you need a pair!  

Whilst riding with the mount in place I did notice a very quiet rattling, but this wasn’t as loud as the Bordo Granit 6000. 

This folding bike lock is one of the two locks that I use to secure my bike and I’ve never had an issue with it. For the tiny amount of extra weight you have to carry, the Granit XPlus is definetely worth it. It offers an incredible level of security, and rivals many of the strongest bike locks.

This lock retails at a very similar price to the Sold Secure Silver folding locks. If you were thinking of getting a Sold Secure Silver lock, it may not be a bad idea to opt for this instead!

Key Benefits:

  • Maximum Security 15/15
  • Sold Secure Gold (bicycle) rating
  • ABUS link protection shield
  • Suitable for high-risk areas
  • 5.5mm hardened steel plates
  • Anti-scratch strong rubber casing 

Trelock FS500 Toro 

Not many cyclists have heard of Trelock before, so it may surprise you to hear that they have been producing bicycle security products since 1854! This is the only other folding bike lock to have received the Sold Secure Gold rating that I know of and is definitely one of the best!

The Trelock FS500’s 5.5mm thick plates are made from TREDUR speciality steel, which provides impressive protection against all forms of attack. With its mount the FS500 weighs 3.41lb (1.55kg) making it a lighter alternative to the ABUS XPlus 6500.

ABUS XPlus 6500 vs Trelock FS500
The Trelock FS500 Toro is slightly longer than the ABUS Bordo Granit, however, it's actually the lighter lock of the two weighing in at just 3.45lb (1.56kg)!

 ‘Special deep link bolts with TRELOCK Security Link Technology as well as the TREDUR®-special steel, resist even the most brutal breaking attempts’.

The Trelock FS500 is 35″ (90cm) long, and it provides 10.2″ x 4.92″ (26cm x 12.5cm) locking room, which is Bordo Granit XPlus, which will be helpful if you need to lock two bikes at the same time.

Like the other locks I’ve covered, you’ll be able to attach the FS500 to the water bottle mount, allowing for quick and convenient usage. You can also use the supplied velcro straps to attach it anywhere else on your bike.

Trelock FS500 review - FS500 Toro securing two bikes
Using the FS500 Toro i was able to secure two bikes at the same time. Both frames and rear wheels safely secured! Impressive.

The mount supplied with the FS500 Toro is very robust and provides a secure way of transporting this folding lock. Attaching this mount to your bike is super easy and I’ve had no trouble operating it. Simply slide the Toro folding bike lock inside the hardened plastic shell and pull the strong rubber strap over the securing clip. 

Unfortunately this lock isn’t silent like the Foldylock Compact, which makes the Foldylock Compact the only silent folding bike lock reviewed in this artilce. Compared to the ABUS Granit XPlus the Trelock FS500 make a similar quiet rattling noise whilst riding, but this doesn’t affect either locks usage in any way. 

I managed to get hands on experience with the Trelock FS500 Toro after writing this article. Since then I have been using this folding lock daily to secure my bike and haven’t been able to find a single issue.

This lock isn’t supplied with an LED key, but it does feature a very useful auto-locking feature, which is helpful when operating this folding lock in the dark (see video above).

Instead of having to fully insert the shackle before you can twist the key to secure this lock, you simply push the shackle in and the auto-locking feature takes care of the rest for you!

This lock feels incredible, it operates smoothly, and utilises top quality materials, to provide incredible security for your bike. I’m seriously considering using this lock as my secondary bike lock, instead of my ABUS Bordo Granit 6500. 

Key Benefits:

  • Sold Secure Gold (bicycle) rating
  • Auto-locking feature
  • 2/5 ART rating
  • Suitable for use in high-risk areas
  • 5.5mm TREDUR® steel plates
  • Anti-scratch soft coating

The Best Folding Bike Lock – Sold Secure Gold

Both of these Sold Secure Gold folding bike locks will provide fantastic security for your bike. 

The ABUS Bordo Granit XPlus is a top-quality folding bike lock. I have been using this lock for the past two years, alongside the Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit (one of the best D locks) and have never had an issue with it.

The Trelock FS500 Toro does not disappoint. I had heard good things prior to testing this folding lock, and it has lived up to and exceeded my expectations. As I said, I’ve been using the XPlus 6500 for two years, but I’m seriously considering swapping it out for this folding bike lock. The FS500 also offers a larger locking area, whilst weighing in less than the XPlus.

Trelock FS500 vs ABUS Bordo Granit
The Trelock (Left) provides more locking space than the ABUS 6500 (Right). Very useful when securing multiple bikes.

The Trelock retails at a substantially cheaper price than the ABUS 6500, making it the more affordable of the two locks.

Both of these folding locks received 2/5 stars from ART and Sold Secure Gold Bicycle ratings. So the security they offer appears to be very similar.

If you’re looking to purchase a new folding bike lock, I’d recommend the Trelock.

The Trelock FS500 weighs less, costs less and gained the same security ratings as the ABUS Bordo Granit 6500, making it the obvious choice of the two locks. 

This being said, the Bordo Granit XPlus is a fantastic choice of folding bike lock, which I’ve been using for the last two years. Apart from price, there’s really nothing between these impressive bike locks.
