The minds behind Tex-Lock are bike fans with body & soul, and product developers with passion & devotion. Equipped with textile know-how and dissatisfied with existing bicycle lock solutions, founders Alexandra Baum and Suse Brand developed the idea for Tex—Lock. Since the two women from Leipzig, Germany, travel a lot by bicycle, they experienced the frustration of having to ride around with a clattering, unwieldy metal bicycle lock. The bright idea was to make a bicycle lock out of textile. Tex-Lock is based and manufactured in Leipzig, Germany with the highest of German standards and expertise.
All products of the eyelet series are certified according to ART*2 anti-theft criteria.
Love the lightweight nature and the length of the cable. It allows me to wrap around different areas of the bike and secure my saddle cable as well.
The u-lock is solid and easy to use.
My only concern right now is with the cover over the opening for the keyhole on the u-lock. I’ll have to see how it wears over time. It seems a bit fragile and might not stay in position after a while, depending on how the u-lock is positioned when the bike is locked. Also, hoping it doesn’t crack.
Nice texture. Comfortable to touch. Heavy enough to feel like it will serve the purpose but not so heavy as to be inconvenient. The u-lock is just large enough to secure the Tex-Lock, frame, and a few spokes. I mostly lock around lamp posts, so even if the u-lock was bigger it would not do more than this does. So, glad it is just large enough for the purpose without being overwhelming in weight or size.
