When a new company enters the bike business with some innovative designs, they deserve props and attention. This one, Hiplock, took how we carry locks in different directions. And, while wearing a thick chain around your hips may not be for everyone, I like the DX Red for the clipless D lock design. You can pretty much drop and secure it into any big enough pocket of a bag or your jeans. Also, see the Hiplock Lite.
Hiplock isn’t that new anymore, but their DX Red is and built for maximum security with a Sold Secure Gold-rated design, 14mm hardened steel shackle and hardened steel body, mated with dual locking, anti-twist shackle tabs. If a thief tries, it’s gonna take them a long time to open the DX Red.
Hiplock reminds me of Knog, with a similar good-grip “kitchen” gadget approach to products we use daily; meaning, look at what OXO or Chef’n did with a cheese grater, flipper, or spatula.
Order the Hiplock DX Red direct or from a shop near you. It costs $99.50 USD.
It’s in the side pocket of my Warsaw Messenger II.
