Big city riders need big city protection, as would-be thieves aren't intimidated by just any lock. Enter the Kryptonite New York 1210, a high-security lock with an innovative oval crossbar disc build designed to defeat thieves' toughest attacks. The New York 1210 is equipped with a 12mm, six-sided chain made of 3t hardened manganese steel for maximum strength. The chain is tough and intimidating, with a durable protective nylon cover that includes hook 'n' loop fasteners to hold it in place. The New York 1210 also includes the Evolution Series 4 disc lock and 14mm Max-Performance steel shackle. The lock's high-security disc-style cylinder--which offers more than one million key variations--boasts a patented, oval-hardened steel crossbar for extra security.
The New York 1210 offers such additional security-enhancing features as hardened double-deadbolt locking for extensive holding power, a reinforced anti-drill/pull cylinder protection system, a sliding dust cover that protects and extends the cylinder life, and three keys--one of them lit with a high-intensity bulb and replaceable battery. Ideal for anyone who lives in moderately high crime areas, the New York 1210 boasts a 10 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. However, city dwellers demand extreme protection, which is why the New York LS is built for serious deterrent security.
The Legendary Durability of Kryptonite Locks
The first big test for Kryptonite locks came in 1972, when Kryptonite founder Michael Zane directed the Second Avenue Bicycle Shop in New York City to lock a three-speed bicycle to a signpost in Greenwich Village. Although thieves immediately stripped all of the bicycle's removable parts, the bicycle itself remained for 30 days and 30 nights. The Kryptonite lock and the bike frame were still in place, even though the lock had been attacked numerous times. The publicity gave Kryptonite the boost it needed and forever changed the face of bicycle security.
Twenty-two years later, Kryptonite returned to the streets of the Big Apple to test its latest innovation, the New York lock. In April 1994, the New York Post laid down the ultimate challenge: Could Kryptonite's New York lock last 48 hours on the toughest streets of New York? In a city where more than 100,000 bikes are stolen each year, Kryptonite and the Post locked a brand-new, bright green Univega road bike worth $600 to a parking meter in the East Village--the Bermuda Triangle of New York bicycle thievery. For a full 48 hours, the bike remained locked on the corner of Avenue A and 11th Street. Zane and Neil McDaid, director of product development and design for Kryptonite, watched from around the corner as the bike came under every possible means of assault, stumping thieves at every turn. After 48 hours the bike remained intact except for the gear derailleur, which had been stripped off. The lock showed definite signs of abuse, but it had not failed. The New York lock had met the Post's challenge.
Not satisfied with the length of the test, Zane moved the bike to SoHo for another six days and, finally, uptown near the Lincoln Center. Even in these high-theft areas the properly locked bike lasted another three weeks before being pulled off the streets by Zane and McDaid. The Post also ran the New York lock through a battery of street tests using common bike theft tools: a 4-foot bolt cutter, a crowbar, and a hammer. The non-Kryptonite locks cracked in seconds, but all methods failed on the New York lock, even the monstrous bolt cutter, which was rendered useless with large dents in its jaws.
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.

Kryptonite rates the security on this set to be a 9 out of 10. This provides a discount if you want to buy the extended anti-theft protection plan they offer. (1 year is included free with locks graded 7 up through 10.)
Well the thief stole our tarp, cut the cable lock, and took our two regular bikes in addition to all the neighbors'. these were still there the next morning (the only bikes still in the garage). They didn't even attempt to cut the chain, its not marred at all.
The bikes left were a Teocali Elite, Pilot 2.1 and Ventura Comp, that would have been a huge loss if the thief made off with them.
In the picture you can see the cut cable lock and the bikes left standing (stolen bikes not pictured)
Basically this bike lock is very good, but only for short term use. After awhile, it'll start getting really hard to unlock and will take a few minutes.
Top reviews from other countries
After several months of hauling it in my backpack (along with laptop, books, toolkits, and more!), I decided to start leaving it locked up at university to save me some back trouble later in life. This is a rather heavy lock (I would weigh it if it was at home with me), and actually weighs more than my bike itself!
As for security, it's great. No one is getting through this without extreme difficulty. I only say that because any lock can be broken given enough time and patience; I'd be more worried about a potential thief destroying/stealing what the bike is actually locked to, it'd probably be easier.
If you're going to be using this lock with a bicycle that has quick release wheels like mine, I'd advise you purchase the lock alongside a cable, such as the Kryptonite Kryptoflex 7 ft Cable Lock (10 mm x 213 cm) , which you can snake through your wheels and lock up to this chain.
You get 3 keys with this lock: one main key that has a blue LED inside (useful for seeing the lock in the dark, but I've not had to use it yet, personally) and 2 spares. If you do buy, remember to register your keys with Kryptonite should they get lost or stolen (they have numbers on them).
All in all, very happy with the lock. I'd gladly leave my bike all day at uni without fear of it going walkies... well, ridies.
Sure, an Angle grinder will cut through the links, but they are massive. Not only will it take them a minute or two. they'll wake up the entire neighborhood. The lock seems pretty sturdy as well, has a small plastic cap to cover for water too.
My only regret is buying a 100cm one, it feels very short. Will opt for a 150cm in the future if I can find one.
Use it to lock up my Suzuki Bandit every day at work. Several bikes have been tampered with but no one has touched mine as this lock looks impossible to break into. Could be classed as a visual deterrent...
It also drove my insurance costs down by more than the cost of the lock for 1 year.
I will probably end up buying another to leave at work as it’s really heavy...
