    You already know ABUS is one of the top dogs when it come to protecting your ride, and now they’ve set out to keep your head safe with a premium line of helmets.

    Born in Wetter, Germany, ABUS stands strong as Europe’s industry leader in commuter focused helmets. Committed to engineering innovative, high quality helmets since 1993, ABUS is proud to expand this fresh line to the U.S. With a mission to bring safety to recreational sports and everyday commuters, ABUS’s new line of helmets fuse rider safety and comfort into one innovative design.

    Fist up is the Hyban – a high end performance helmet that’s ready for the day-to-day abuse of urban cycling and commuting. It’s got 18 massive vents to keep your dome cool and is even equipped with 180 degrees of reflectors and a high mounted rear-facing LED light.

    Second, we have the Urban-I v.2 – a slightly more robust helmet made with commuters, city riders, touring cyclists and every day riders in mind.

    If you’re in the market for a new helmet or are looking for the perfect urban commuting helmet, I’d consider these new offerings from ABUS.

  • ABUS Bordo Centium Folding Lock

    With the Bordo, ABUS has completely re-imagined the bicycle lock and created something totally different – the folding lock. The Bordo family of bike locks offer totally unique features within the field of locks that all share a similar shape. While I don’t exactly think there’s anything wrong with a U-Lock, the folding style of the ABUS Bordo lock is unique and definitely has some appeal, especially when it comes to locking to odd or over-sized structures.

  • ABUS Brooklyn Chain A.P.

    When you live in a city like Shanghai (or any large city for that matter), you know the importance of having a quality lock. Thieves thrive on opportunity; so don’t give them much of one in the first place! German lock maker ABUS just released their Brooklyn Chain – a burly-as-hell chain that’s nearly impossible to cut. If you’re one of the many people asking me for lock recommendations, then be sure to check out the ABUS Brooklyn Chain.

  • Initial Reaction: ABUS Granit X Plus Mini 54 U Lock

    I came home from work today to find a nice little package from ABUS, containing their newly-released Granit X Plus 54 u lock. This mini u lock is their top-of-the-line in terms of security and portability. They took the locking system and wide profile of the largest Granit X Plus locks and shrunk the shackle size, which is great if you’re in an urban area and need a lock that won’t take up a ton of space in your bag. My initial reaction to this lock is that it’s beefy, and in the best of ways. Not only does it have a double bolted shackle, but it’s also equipped with an automatic keyhole cover that helps keep moving parts safe from the elements. I’m so excited to try out this lock! I’ll report back once I’ve given it some proper use and let you know what I think.
