Abus does 11 different Bordo folding locks with some of them available in 20 different versions. We've been putting the Bordo Lite 6055 through its paces to see if it warrants a place in our guide to the best bike locks

The 440g folding lock from Abus is super convenient and still beats most cable locks for security, but it can’t quite match the security of heavier D-locks and chains.
