When you are going out on a recreational bike ride, you don’t want to lug a big ol’ U-lock along with you. But, if you stop for a coffee on the way home, you yet require to secure your bike pretty. That is definitely where the Hiplok FLX comes in. It’s a small cable lock which doubles as a wearable tail light.

The 100-gram FLX showcases a 1-meter (3.3-ft) braided steel cable, along with a three-digit combination lock. Needless to say, you are not going to be via it to secure your precious two-wheeler for long periods of time – instead, it is actually meant additional only to store thieves of walking past and grabbing your bike while it is actually parked near you at a sidewalk cafe (or, let’s be honest, at a bar’s patio).

As an introduced bonus, in case it is actually getting dark by the time you’ve finished your “coffee,” the FLX can be clipped onto your back pocket, hydration pack or whatnot and utilized as a tail light. It has a 10-lumen LED which can be set to flashing or steady modes.

If you are interested, it is actually on the market now in black or white, for £30 (about US$44) via the Hiplok website. For another take on a multi-purpose “cafe-style” bike lock, check out Lazer’s Cappuccino – when not being utilized as a lock, it serves as the clasp on a helmet strap.
