The TiGr mini is a lightweight bike lock which is something different. It doesn’t appear or looks and doesn’t work like other bike locks. It isn’t even made from the same or identical stuff as other bike locks. It is a complete handmade tool.
The lock comprises two parts: a steel locking cylinder and a titanium bow. The bow is a good substantial quality strip of titanium1.25″ (32 mm) wide, and 0.125″ (3.2 mm) thick, and the strip is designed into a triangle shape with a clear or open gap in a single corner. The gap is about 2.8-inches (7 cm) wide. And it’s through that space that you need to fit your frame, your wheel and whatever you’re locking your bike to. But, that’s a pretty small gap. It includes PVC coating on the bow that protects your bike frame from scratches. It includes a Mounting clip that is simple to install.
The key cylinder of this product coupled with the bow via a simple (but strong) pin that wedges thick, riveted lugs into an unmovable position. The TiGr Mini is hard to compromise because of its frame-hugging small size, and it’s more difficult to get a bolt cutter or a saw blade on the 1.25-inch titanium bow when it’s secured tight around a bike.
The best thing about the TiGr mini or titanium bike lock is its weight. It’s much lighter than any other bike lock that offers comparable levels of security. And since it’s so compact as well, it’s incredibly easy to carry around on a day to day basis.
The flexibility or the quality of being adaptable of titanium then lets you squeeze the two ends of the bow together and adjust the locking cylinder, which is protected around the anchors at the end of the bow by pressing down a button type inner cylinder. In use, the TiGr lightweight bike lock is slick. A bow of titanium fits over your bike frame, around a post, and then it locks together with a click.
An entire re-imagination of what a bike lock should be, the TiGr mini comes from a desire to improve weight, storage, and usability without sacrificing security. The TiGr mini offers higher security for its size and weight when your bike is left alone on a hazy or sketchy street.
Eventually, all bike locks are simply a certain behavior or action. If you need lightweight and simple design, this lightweight bike lock will provide you with moderate security, and it won’t weigh you down, obviously.
