OttoLock Cinch Bicycle Lock

Instead of increasingly thick and heavy metal tubing weighing you down, the OttoLock Cinch Bicycle Lock tries a different approach to securing your bicycle: Kevlar. The compact lock weighs in at a paltry four ounces and coils down to just three inches in diameter, easily mounting behind your bike’s seat tube or around your seat pack. Despite this it’s still extremely difficult to cut using wire or bolt cutters thanks to its mix of steel and Kevlar beneath the Santoprene plastic band. A resettable combination lock secures the coil as loose or tight as you need it to lock your two-wheeler to a variety of objects, and it’s also effective at locking other stuff like skis, snowboards, and kayaks thanks to the availability of different strap lengths of between 18 and 60 inches.
