    Also, that docu uses massive attack's music. This makes me giddy.

What they don't show is what happen if the metal part is attacked with an angle grinder instead. Hopefully, if they have put some rubber under the metal part then...
    Can you give me a link?

    For sure, i hope you can understand french, video is in french, beware it's full of marketing ***:
    by the way i've noticed that they've attacked the metal part with the angle grinder for 1s or so but the video shows only a proof of concept rather than real attacks

    The key broke inside, and he explained that it took 15 min to get through with an angle grinder. Another guy had a locksmith cut through it, this time in 10 minuts. No video, but at least an image.

    Sry about the weird thumbnails, I had problems adding the image and getting rid of the thumbnails seemed impossible.

    10, 15 minutes seems plausible

    Very interesting.. Ofcourse they didn't give each of the tests much time, so It's hard to say but the fact that they market it as "theft proof" is still very promising. I look forward to seeing some reviews when it reaches the stores. But 60 euroes? I mean, IF it does what it's supposed to do and even prevents angle grinder attacks, I'd pay hundrds for it.

    Added to the story is their promise that if you buy a bicycle from their website, AND the hardlock, you will get a full refund for the bike if it gets stolen - and this goes internationally.

    What they say is that they have created a universal method to test any lock on the market with all the tools that are used by thieves anywhere around the world. They then have asked an independant company to test all the locks (or nearly) available on the market today using this method and it is the hardlock that stood up the tests.

    I agree 60 euros is not much. Will see where it stands in real life. I have some doubts with the metal part.
    A problem i see is that they claim that thieves have to use some tools in the proper order to defeat the lock, the problem is that once someone find out the order then it becomes useless like when thieves find the proper tools to defeat other locks.
    For instance, i was interested in the abus granit extreme 59 but now that i know that it has a big weakness other than the grinder I'm not anymore.

    Yeh I dont know what they mean by that either. But even so, if it cant be cut through with an angle grinder, no other tool can cut through regardless of order. The anti-grinder layer is the bottelneck I imagine, which makes me wonder why they woudn't make it entirely out of this layer then.
