We use the most common attack against u-locks to test the Kryptonite Evolution Mini..
Author: House of Chain
The locks are great but man I thought Kryptonite cables that go on and protect wheels from being stolen would be very strong, but there’s a video on here of a guy with a mini bolt cutters slicing through one like butter,I need to get another U-Lock to protect my front wheel.
This won’t happen in real life, unless the thief wants to intentionally break your bike.
You are supposed to lock the bike through the frame and rear wheel. There simply is not enough space to fit a huge pry bar in there. Even if so, the attempt of prying it open will irreversibly damage the bike and thus the value to the thief is lost.
yes use a bar with holes in it, fucking dumbasses
one thing is breaking a lock that is only attached to one bar, when you have room to manouver, don’t have anything to damage, and because it’s not attached to a bike and you are filming, people are not going to react to you.
If you had that same lock going through a thick frame and wheels, and had to pry it open without damaging the bike it would probably work differently for you.
The problems with these is you only need to cut one side and it gone where as the Abus locks need to be cut twice.
Maybe you guys should of tested it with a junker bike and a more practical pry bar which a thief would use.
could you test those ones : *”KryptoLok series 2 955 Mini Integrated Chain”* and *”New York Fahgettaboudit Mini”*
Moral of the story.. Be weary of anyone walking down the street holding a 8 foot Pry bar.lol
We use the most common attack against the #Kryptonite evolution mini. #success

I think the lock passed this test. If there were a bike locked in there it would have been trashed. The lock IMHO gave a good fight. thumbs up
Ha! For a while I thought the lock was going to win! I’ve had a kryptonite mini-7 for a couple of years now…one of the advantages of buying the smallest u-lock you can get away with is that it leaves less room to get a pry bar between the lock and the bike. Without destroying the bike, of course. But if the thief just wants to destroy the bike, no need to mess with the lock! 😉
Could you please test this technique with the Abus Granit X-plus 54?
If I would be the owner of this car near by , I would kick your ass you fucking moron
Lol. You call that a pry bar? That’s just a flimsy piece of aluminium list. Try using a real iron bar next time.
You’d probably want to use some protection for your eyes next time. But that’s none of my business.
Another reason why kryptonite’s single locking u locks are garbage. I believe most thiefs use a pry bar instead of bolt cutter since they draw less attention.
My only concern is if the lock indeed held up, the bike frame would be more or less ruined especially if it was carbon.
I found a cool idea how to steal bikes in broad daylight- bring along a friend with a video camera and pretend you’re doing some sort of test!
This is how the every production test should be done , until it’s broken!
what is a pry bar made of?
This is not even a real pry bar… This is a $15-20 piece of unistrut stolen off a construction site… Admittedly it IS probably the sort of thing crooks might be using to break locks…but a real pry bar is made from solid steel like this http://www.amazon.com/True-Temper-1174300-60-Inch-Diamond/dp/B0015KQVXY/ref=cm_sw_em_r_dpcod_7Yq7vb0MWY9GQ_tt
Interestingly enough, you were able to break it anyway, but in a real lockup situation with a bike in the lock could you even get the bar into the ulock? Probably would be easier just to have a ratchet and remove the bolts holding the anchor to the ground…then take the whole thing.
