Sold Secure Diamond bike locks: The List

Sold Secure have added a fourth level to their bicycle lock security ratings: Diamond! And it now becomes the highest security rating for bike locks. From their 2020 catalogue:

  1. Diamond locks: "provide the highest level of security ... aimed at very high value bicycles and e-bikes."
  2. Gold locks: "offer the next highest level of security, aimed at mid-to-high value bicycles."
  3. Silver locks: "offer a compromise between security and cost."
  4. Bronze locks: "typically offer defense against the opportunist thief."
Sold Secure bike lock ratings

Sold Secure rate the security of bike locks from Bronze to Diamond

This change makes a lot of sense!

It seems easier than ever for a lock to achieve a Gold rating, and as a consequence there are more and more Sold Secure Gold locks every year. Which dilutes the cache and confuses the customers.

Certainly there is wide range of different security levels included in the Sold Secure Gold rating.

For example the 16 mm Kryptonite New York Standard and the 12.7 mm Kryptonite Kryptolok are very different locks, offering very different levels of protection. But they're both rated Sold Secure Gold!

So a new higher level than Gold (Diamond!) is definitely a step in the right direction.

The problem is that locks can't be rated until they're submitted for testing. So for a while the picture will be confusing as locks that should be Diamond remain Gold!

Below is a list of the locks that are already rated Sold Secure Diamond. In most cases they are the same locks that were previously rated Gold, they've just been re-tested. However there may be a few that have never been tested before, so were never rated Gold.

Be aware that if you buy one of these locks, they maybe still labelled as Gold as it will take some time for new (Diamond) stock to get into the market.

Yes, I know it's confusing and it will remain so for some time! If you have any doubts about the rating of any lock, leave a comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!
