OTTO DesignWorks, makers of the OTTOLOCK Cinch Lock—which we’ve put to good use over the last couple of years—just announced the new HEXBAND series. The OTTOLOCK HEXBAND touts added resistance to shearing tools such as snips and cable cutters. OTTO claims that getting through the HEXBAND requires significant effort or powered devices, making it a stronger lock option for quick, mid-ride stops.
OTTOLOCK HEXBAND uses six stainless steel band layers (versus three in the original) while still being wrapped in a Dupont Kevlar jacket. The form factor remains unchanged with a small weight addition of just 75 grams (30” version), making for a total weight of 250g.
In development for more than a year, HEXBAND can be distinguished by its titanium-colored head and band. It’s available in 18”, 30”, and 60” lengths and priced at $65, $75, and $95 MSRP respectively. Learn more over in the video below and over at OttoLock.com
