A bike lock is an effective deterrent to opportunist bike theft and quality locks like the VAULT – premium range (‘D’, Folding and Chain) when used to secure the bike to a solid object will defeat most attempts. Unfortunately, even quality locks on their own are little match for the determined recidivist bike thief who prowls the streets targeting commercial and residential storage areas for high-value bikes and is known to carry tools, including angle grinders that can defeat any lock.
Targeted bike theft is largely driven by how easily thieves and black market traders can profit from on-selling stolen bikes as a whole or as separated parts to unsuspecting purchasers. They have virtually no fear of the stolen bike being identified and know that the likelihood of their crime being detected and being prosecuted by police is extremely low.
Rapid advancements in bike technology and the growth of the ‘E’ bike segment has led to ever-increasing bike values. This means greater profits for thieves and black-market traders and fuels an even stronger motivation for theft.
The cure is simple. Remove the thieves' and black market traders' profit motivation by making bikes easily identifiable, unsaleable, and too hot to handle.
