"graphene ceramic" clad to foul the blade. Still has a steel core for the bolt cutters to choke on.

$230

Yes I supported and ordered 3 for my kids and myself. It's lighter than the Kryptonite NYF and should compliment the chain to prevent wheel theft as well at school bike lots, which are normally poorly or unsecured. Hiplok doesn't have insurance if it's broken through, and Kryptonite does pay out if there's proof, with the school security and police report, plus a grinded off lock that was left behind luckily.

My guess- there’s a trick to cutting this lock. Once the trick gets known, it’s just another lock.

You may be right, but just like the high powered corded grinders that can defeat this with several blades and at least 10-25 minutes, thieves aren't likely to be walking around with it.

The proliferation of the cordless version escalated the crime of opportunity to an artform.

This new lock for the time being will put a serious pause on that which is probably the best we can hope for now days where most tech has a very finite shelf life.

I bought some too.

Funny, I'm reading the defining book on tank warfare right now; Achtung! Panzer- about the effective use of tanks. Written in 1937, it draws from WWI experience on both sides. A battle between tank designers, anti-tank weapons designers and military leaders. The early English and French tanks were unstoppable except by shell holes, breakdowns, etc. The Germans invented armor piercing bullets. Better armor plating appeared. The Germans started mounting their cannons on carriages that shot horizontally at close range instead of the high arching lobs that worked so well against infantry. (It's early 1918. I don't get to see what's next until I pick the book up again tonight.)

Replace tanks with bike locks. The allies with us cyclists and the Germans with thieves and you have this thread. (Not really fair to the Germans. WW1 wasn't about right and wrong. Historically, we (the Allies) became "right" because we won. And rubbed it in so hard we paved the way for Hitler.) And just like tanks, bike locks keep getting bigger and more expensive. (Shall we place bets on when the fanciest lock's weight crosses that of the early tanks? )

^^^ that arms race was about parity. That hasn't been the case since maybe the Gulf war and already rare by then. Now it's all asymmetric. Desperate guerilla infantry with tiny missiles smuggled in by rival belligerent, w shaped charge warheads, taking out big expensive tanks.

Although there's something definitely funny about a technological arms race between thieves and lock makers when what's being locked up and stolen are victorian contaptions

Cutting discs explode like that when you twist the disc while cutting. You have to keep the exact same angle and orientation you started your plunge at.

Probably an awesome lock though.
