Our review

For the price it’s okay, but there are better shackle locks available

The Varedo is Abus’s mid-range shackle, meeting Sold Secure’s Silver rating. It has a double-lock mechanism and parabolic shackle shape which helps resist twisting. 


For the first test, the Varedo resisted bolt cropping for 30 seconds, at which point we realised it was a futile method. 


Out with our trusty extending lever bar, and the Varedo twisted a little and then snapped in just 3.61 seconds. This did some damage to our dummy frame but we’d broken though and got our prize.
