At first glance, we were a bit skeptical of the Ottolock, an ultra-light bike lock from Otto Design Works. However, after a thorough bolt cutter test, we were blown away by its durability. The Ottolock is a fraction of the weight of a U-Lock but far stronger than a cable lock, making it the perfect solution for quick rides around town. Watch to see our gear editor's first impressions of this innovative bike lock.
