Environment your E-Bike is left in

High risk vs low risk.  If you are considering investing money in an a bike lock for your E-Bike you need to be buying for it’s greatest risk.  This is usually busy urban areas or when you are leaving your bike for long periods of time.  Is your bike secure in your home environment where it is stored for long periods of time?  Chain locks combined with wall or ground anchors are a great option for this at home or all day at work scenario. 

Will you have a good choice of ‘fixed’ objects to choose from?  There are usually a good selection of bike racks in most down town areas, along with sign posts and power poles.  Avoid locking your E-bike to a wire fence that can be easily cut.

Does an E- Bike Lock need to be different to a lock for a standard bike?

While the lock does not need to be a special lock we do recommend a mid to high risk lock with the design features that make it difficult to cut or break open.  The more expensive your bike was the more attractive it will be to thieves so also take this into consideration.  Certain brands of locks are really good at what they do, ABUS consistently get very high security ratings as do HipLok.  On Guard are good at great locks for reasonable prices.

You do need to be aware that E-Bikes often have larger, thick frames so small D or U-locks will not be an option.

Features of an E-Bike Lock (Mid to High Risk)

Materials – strong, durable, thick.  Steel and hardened cables.  What are the weak points of your lock.  The pivots on a folding lock need to be high quality for it to be a worthwhile investment.

Design – The shape of the bike lock should give you good options in terms of space or length.  Being able to fit a thick part of your E-Bike frame to a sturdy fixed object gives you options.

  • silver, gold or diamond security ratings
  • portability, ease of carrying
  • good opening space or length

 

Locks We Recommend for Using with E-Bikes

Chain locks have the best security ratings but are heavier to carry.

U-Lock with large internal space, portable and strong

Folding locks have a lower security rating but they are great with unusual shapes and fold down to be easily carried
