Peace of Mind

Super easy deterrent to lash around my Reckless 80 and my Back Country 40 when I’ve got to leave the bike out of site in a public place while getting groceries or taking a dip in the hot springs.

Will it stop a would be thief? No - not much stops one thats motivated.
Will it be a PIA and cause them to move to an easier mark? Definitely.

Great Cable Lock

Let’s be honest… any cable lock is only going to prevent the opportunist from taking things. In that respect, you want something easy to use and pack, and you want something that has a reliable locking mechanism.
These cables have all of that. Even though almost any cable lock will accomplish the goal of this one, this lock feels significantly better and easier to use than other cable locks I’ve messed with. I do not feel like I have to worry about the locking mechanism freezing up or breaking loose. Someone will have to cut the cable in order to get past these.
The combination was also very easy to reset. I’m glad I purchased these in a package deal with my backcountry panniers.

Compact ADV Lock

Size

The Compact ADV Lock is the easy-carry solution for quick stops - leave your bags on the bike while you pop in for lunch or groceries. This unique cable lock cinches down tight, so it will also stay in place while riding, and keep out prying hands at border crossings, stoplights, etc.

The 5mm cable is so compact that you can easily travel with a set, and not even notice you have them. It fits neatly in the lock-pocket of your Backcountry bag, or in a MOLLE pouch, tank bag, or other small pocket. Plus it’s a programmable combo lock, so forget the stress of fumbling for keys, too!

Sold individually.

The unique cinch-able cable tightens around the outside of your bag, securing the roll-top and making installation easy, no matter how much (or little) you packed. It also seamlessly integrates with the locking bar found on our Backcountry series bags, a feature that makes it impossible for someone to yank the cable off the roll-top and gain access to your stuff. The bag is also simultaneously locked to the bike, when you pass the lock through your rack, grab handle, or bike frame.

Our ADV locks are made from cut-resistant steel cable, with a bright blue PVC coating for visibility and corrosion resistance. Although the Compact ADV Lock won’t stand up to a determined thief, visible deterrents are very effective against snatch-and-grab theft. If you’re looking for a higher-security option, don’t miss our Heavy Duty ADV Lock.

The Compact ADV lock comes in two lengths: 5ft (1.5M) and 6ft (1.9M), and we recommend ordering the following quantities:

- Backcountry 25/35L Pannier Kit: Two 5' Locks
- Backcountry 30/40L Duffle: One 6' Lock
- Scout 25L Pannier Kit: Two 5' Locks
- Scout Duffle (any size): One 5' Lock
