Product Review: Gear Gremlin Hurricane lock and chain

Gear Gremlin Hurricane lock and chain, £25.99 and Nimrod lock and chain £54.99

Time: Nine months

What’s good? Both locks offer a good, visible deterrent. The Nimrod is a lot sturdier than the Hurricane. I used the Hurricane on the front of the bike and the Nimrod on the back. Both chains are long enough to get through the wheel and around a post or ground anchor. The chain cover is robust and I’ve had no problems with the locking mechanisms on either having used them all year. Neither have faced the ultimate test, which may mean their presence was enough!

What’s not? The Hurricane feels a little lightweight while the Nimrod chain is hardened steel. For an extra fiver you can get a slightly longer chain (1.5 metres rather than 1.2) for the Nimrod.
