Every day a lot of bicycles are stolen. The number of reports of stolen E-bikes has even increased by 37 percent.
To prevent theft, it is important to secure the bicycle properly and to invest in a good second lock. Breaking open 2 locks with separate cylinders takes a lot of time and therefore bicycle thieves will leave this bicycle. In addition, it is also important to secure the bicycle to a post or fence and that is perfectly possible with a second lock!
AXA works every day to stay one step ahead of bicycle thieves. In addition to everything AXA can do for you, there are many more options to protect your bike against thieves.
For example a ring lock and a chain lock. Bicycle thieves often have one specialism and therefore often leave a bicycle with two locks. Moreover, it takes a lot more time to break open two locks than one. Always use an approved lock, these are always approved by independent institutes.
Prevent thieves from breaking open your lock in a quiet location. So pay attention to the location where you park your bike.
By attaching your chain or cable high on the bicycle and not on the ground, less force can be applied during a break-in attempt. Preferably attach locks through the frame or to the rear wheel of the bike. Front wheels can be removed more quickly.
Preferably in a place where there is a lot of activity, for example at a bus station or metro stop. Thieves don't like to be watched. A place with many passers-by is less safe, because passers-by hardly look around and can even camouflage the movements of a thief.
In the fight against bicycle thieves, we recommend the Absolute chains. These chain locks vary from a 5 mm to a 9 mm chain with ART 2 star approval.
They are ideal to use as a second lock and are long enough to attach the bike to something.
