1000 Series wins design and Innovation Award

Leamington Spa, 24 January 2024 – Hiplok wins a 2024 Design & Innovation Award for 1000 Series, a revolutionary range of anti-angle grinder locks and anchors. The awards celebrate products that showcase advancements in the cycling industry, and the judges commended Hiplok’s 1000 Series for “setting a new gold standard in bike theft prevention”.  

Anti-Angle Grinder Security for Riders Everywhere

The 1000 Series features the world’s first anti-angle grinder anchors and a D/U lock designed specifically for motorcycles, e-bikes, and cycles. Developed with a focus on urban riders, these products protect against all forms of attack.

Hiplok Co-Founder Ben Smith said, “Winning an international award recognising our commitment to innovation is a great way to start the year. We design solutions for the evolving needs of riders, and the 1000 Series is a modular system leading the way in bike and motorcycle security.”

The Judges’ Verdict

“If you want uncompromising security for your bike, the Hiplok 1000 Series, which includes the DX1000 U-lock and the AX1000 pivoting arm with ground anchor, is the lock for you. Both the lock and the arm are strong enough to withstand an angle grinder. The U-lock is big enough to fit motorbikes, cargo bikes and larger framed e-bikes without the need for heavy, cumbersome chains, which don’t always offer the best level of security. Despite its impressive size, this lock is surprisingly easy to use and provides maximum security. The ground anchor can be mounted on either wall or floor, and its arm rotates 360° and swivels 180°, providing a wide range of security options. Whether it’s in your own home, a remote rental garage, a company parking lot, or even a dark alley in the city, the Hiplok 1000 Series provides security anywhere and sets a new gold standard in bike theft prevention.”
