In today’s blog we will try to answer one of the questions most frequently asked by users about the products of the Viro 2Ruote range: “What is the top of the range for bike security?”. Continue reading →
Whether it’s a motorcycle, a moped or a bicycle, when we decide to protect our 2-wheeled vehicles we are not always able to adequately compare the security items we have in front of us. In fact, every security product of the “2Ruote” range has its own characteristics which make it more or less suitable for our vehicle. If you have already read our article “Saving on security, is it really worth it?”, where we talk about the right proportion between the value of the item to be protected and the value of the security item used to do so, and also the first part of the classification “Security for your two-wheeled vehicles: Viro product classification (Part 1)“, then you are ready for this second part.

Choosing a security product to protect our two-wheeled vehicle, i.e. a chain, a disc lock or an alarm, may not always be as easy as it seems. In fact, every security product of the 2Ruote Viro family offers a more or less high level of protection and adapts differently to the needs of the vehicle, whether it is a motorcycle, a moped or a bicycle. Therefore, before making the purchase, after answering the fundamental question “What do I intend to protect?”, which we talked about in the article “Saving on security, is it really worth it?”, what we need to pay attention to, apart from the costs, are the characteristics of the security product.

Are you traveling and have lost your suitcase key? Have you left your bike locked to a pole and don’t know how to open the padlock because you’ve lost the key? First of all, stay calm and bear in mind that the Internet is always full of useful resources. If you are looking for a way to open a padlock, the Internet will without doubt provide you with more than one solution. However, the purpose of this article, in addition to showing you how easy it can be to open a padlock, especially if it is a poor quality one, is to make you understand how to prevent someone else from opening it instead of you.

As the saying goes, a chain is as strong as its weakest link. This is the case for chains by themselves, but it also applies in general for all security systems which consist of several elements. The entire system is as strong as its weakest component. If you lock up your bicycle or motorbike with a system consisting of a lock and a chain, it is therefore important to evaluate not only the quality of the padlock but also that of the chain. If the chain is the weak point, any thief will attack this instead of padlock.
But how can you recognise a good quality chain, which is able to effectively resist any attacks? There are 5 main features to take into consideration: Continue reading →
In the previous blog we talked about how to choose a good quality chain to protect your bikes. When it comes to motorcycles or mopeds, a padlock + chain locking system may not be enough and, in order to sleep more soundly, it may be useful to integrate it with additional protection, such as a disc lock.
The disc lock is a widely used anti-theft system on mopeds and motorcycles as they are very easy to use: quick to put on and take off, don’t take up much space and are not very heavy. However, disc stops have some security limitations which are important to know, especially to be able to use them in the best possible way. Continue reading →
In the previous blog we presented some products, an example for each level (from standard to maximum), to ensure agreater protection for the garage door. It is also possible to maximise the strength of the lock. A solution which makes the presence of an armoured lock even more effective is to install additional accessories to enhance the strength of the garage door and the locking system already installed.
Today’s article is dedicated to garages and the most effective methods to protect them.
If you’ve seen the infographic published recently on our blog you’ll remember that we’ve talked about products with “standard”, “higher” and “maximum” levels. What does this type of classification mean?
We have recently spoken several times about theft from garages because unfortunately this phenomenon has intensified over the years and has become a real problem especially for those who use their garage for storing equipment of all kinds.
