Xena XZZ6 Disc Lock - 6mm Pin
Customer Product Reviews
Not long lasting
Bought this item last august, used it for the rare occasions where I leave my bike unattended in town. Must have used the lock less than 10 times, and I am being generous with 10. The lock does not close anymore, some mechanism must have broken inside. Shame because the alarm is definitely loud enough and would do the job. Other people seems happy with theirs, was mine a faulty one ? Anyway, £30 for less than 10 uses is not great.
Alarm is good
My main worries with this were that: 1) The alarm would good off all of the time and annoy my neighbors. 2) The alarm would not go off when I needed it. I've found that the alarm is really good, I live on a fairly busy narrow street and keep it on the front disk. The vibration from cars driving by does not set it off, however if I tug at the cover or bump it in any way it will go off. Keep in mind there is one main limitation here in that if you cover the speaker with your hand you can effectively silence it. This is important in case you accidentally bump it so you don't annoy everyone around you, but not sure if a thief could cover it while angle grinding it to bits.
A no brainer for me
Well made solid lock, already got one of these for my fair weather bike, this additional lock is for my commuter bike. Take into consideration that if you have a light bike that two people could carry away with a normal disc lock on, they can't with one of these. They are a great buy, very loud and come with three keys.
Compact disc lock
I like this lock...as you could carry in a pocket, not advised for safety reasons though, but that is how small and light it is. So it fits easily under the seat of my GSX 650. Bright colour to be seen easily, 6mm pin fits most disc brake holes. Seems good quality from a good manufacturer. Be careful you can lock it without the key so beware, make sure you have the key with you before pressing the lock button! Surprised that it is not supplied with a reminder cable, so budget for one of these when you buy. Reasonably loud alarm and not overly sensitive when fitted. Competitively priced, top value and service from SBS, as always.
