Trelock have had a reputation in previous tests for building tough locks. This new MS650 is aimed at both the bicycle and motorcycle market and it is plenty tough enough for both. The double-locking mechanism is heavily armoured and the lock mechanism can freely rotate between the armoured casing making it tricky to attack the barrel directly.

In our first test the MS650 sailed through with mere cosmetic damage and despite our cropping, hammering and battering, still worked perfectly well after the full five minutes of abuse. In test two we brought out the big guns – power tools – and the MS650 took 34sec of full power cutting before we got through the armoured case and split the inner cable. We’d recommend this to anyone looking for the convenience of a cable – it is among the toughest cables we’ve seen – the downside is the 2kg+ weight.

TEST 1 – Passed.
