Raleigh Protector 100 lock review£16.99

Budget option, and it shows

BikeRadar score1.5/5Find prices on Bicycle Blue Book

The budget-priced Raleigh Protector comes with a plastic mount bracket, but that’s about as good as it gets for this super-cheap U-lock.

It’s well sized, with a shackle that’s usable, but neither thick (10mm) nor tough enough. We snapped through it in just 2.9 seconds with our trusty bolt croppers so it doesn’t really offer a great deal of protection. Supplied with two keys.
