Meet the Kryptonite New York Cinch Loop 1275 chain lock. Possibly the best cargo bike and electric bike lock available, especially at the price of $110.

Using a 2.5-foot chain that has nearly the same “in-use” length as a traditional 3.5-foot chain thanks to the CINCH LOOP. At one end of the chain you’ll find a round chain link, this allows the chain to wrap around a bike rack and through itself, adding a foot to the usable length of the chain without carrying around a bigger lock.

The chain consists of 12mm six-sided hardened steel links for maximum strength, the lock is secured with the Evolution Series 4 Disc Lock with a 14mm MAX-PERFORMANCE STEEL SHACKLE.

This lock is rated 9 out of 10 in the Kryptonite ratings, and 4 out of 5 ART ratings. It comes with 3 keys that are uniquely coded and can be replaced if lost.

If you have the place to carry this lock for your cargo or electric bike, as a cargo bike specialist this is the one I would recommend.

In an upcoming video, I’m going to be comparing my top 5 electric bike locks that will cover this lock, and others available from Abus and Kryptonite. Make sure to hit subscribe to be notified when that video is live!
