Kit review: Abus Granit 68 Victory-X Plus

Published: 19 August 2009

Abus Granit 68 Victory-X Plus £69.99

Tester: Marc Potter

Miles covered/time: Used for four years

What’s good? It’s been out in the rain for years, but with a squirt of WD40 it works a treat and has never let me down. So strong that I wheeled a GSX-R1000 backwards a foot and it smashed the disc and the front mudguard without bending the pin of the lock. It’s Thatcham approved, too, and is a brilliant deterrent though it has never had to face the ultimate test of some toe-rag having a go at it.

What’s not? Forget to attach the coiled flex to the brake lever to remind you it’s on and commit the usual disc lock crime.
