Knog describe ‘The Frankie’ as the new sausage on the block. It takes its form from the popular Party Frank, but is improved in every key element. A reinforced key, and a reinforced lock housing make the Frankie stronger, sturdier, more reliable and sometimes tastier.
I normally wouldn’t trust any light weight cable lock to keep my bike safe, however Knog have done a bit of lateral thinking and have included some microfilaments inside the cable in the hope that it will make them more resistant to bolt cutter attack. As I am on my bike daily it is a great option for some security, and more importantly it’s easily portable and extremely lightweight. I especially like be able to wrap the cable around the frame and not need to carry a cumbersome lock in a rucksack.
Knog understand its limitations and realistically claim that if you are after maximum security then the Frankie is probably not for you.
We like the Frankie it offers a good balance between functionality, portability, versatility, and value for money.
