The Evo Mini 7 boasts a 9 ranking on the Kryptonite 1-12 comparison system, which ranks the varying levels of security within the company's product range. A lock that ranks 1 on the Kryptonite scale might work if you live in the burbs and have a Rottweiler parked next to your bike or motorcycle. A 9, by contrast, isn't the toughest rating on the Kryptonite scale, but it's pretty darned close. Other security-enhancing features include a high-security Bent Foot design, a reinforced cuff over the hardened crossbar and cylinder that protects the disc-style cylinder; and a center keyway that defends against leverage attacks. As a bonus, the lock includes three stainless-steel keys, including one with a high-intensity LED bulb for convenient, easy unlocking in the dark. The lock measures 7 by 3.25 inches.
In the early 1970s, Michael Zane was a free-spirited, bearded kid with a VW van and a big idea for a new kind of lock. He traveled thousands of miles showing the unique U-shaped locking device and spreading his passion for bicycle security to bike dealers all around the country and forged lifetime relationships. The company soon expanded its product line to include power sports, hardware, and snow sports security. Through innovative product designs, cutting-edge marketing savvy, legendary customer service, and pure fanaticism for security, Kryptonite grew with a cult-like following. In 2001, the company that was started in a VW van was purchased by industry giant Ingersoll Rand and became a flagship brand in the company's Security Technologies sector. Publications such as Bicycling, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, US News & World Report, and a host of others continued to tout Kryptonite products as the best on the market.
The company's dedication to its customers is best represented by its actions during the fall of 2004, when it was discovered that the industry-standard tubular cylinder could be compromised, at times, with a household item. Kryptonite flew into action, created a voluntary lock exchange program, and replaced more than 400,000 locks in 21 countries for free. In essence, the company redesigned the equivalent of nine years worth of new products in just 10 short months. Kryptonite is the only company in the world that offered such a comprehensive plan to customers, taking its "legendary customer service" pledge to new heights.
HEAVY, BIG, SECURE, works great, but a bit on the heavy side if weight is important to you....but if not it's secure....ddPublished 9 months ago by Doug Douglas
The lock is good, hefty. The cable is long enough to go through the front tire to the back tire with a lot of length to spare. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Andy C
This sounded great to use for what I consider an expensive new bike, but when I tried to read the directions and put the pieces together, it was very difficult. Read morePublished 12 months ago by kpowers40
Really needed a longer lock to go around larger poles etc. Waited too long and Amazon wouldn't accept the return. Had to resell privately at a loss. Read morePublished 12 months ago by jezibel
I must have received a dodgy one as the key doesn't fit the lock great and have to do a lot of wiggling around to lock/unlock it. Other than that it is a very sturdy lock.Published 13 months ago by Daz
I work on a college campus so I needed a good bike lock as bike theft is fairly common. I like the smaller U lock and the cable enables me to lock up my front wheel. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Bovilexia
