A MATERIAL THAT OFFERS RESISTANCE
The concept that the IvyTex technology is based on, has already been in use for several years in industrial applications in areas subjected to high loads, where moving parts have to be protected against wear and tear.
ABUS has taken advantage of this concept by using it in the sleeves for its chain locks. The effect of this is twofold: it provides protection against wear and tear, as well as preventing the chain from causing damage to the bicycle. IvyTex technology has many other benefits aside from its endurance. The hi-tech fabric is also durable and highly flexible, as well as being weatherproof and resistant to liquids. This prevents water from being absorbed by the fabric, thereby protecting the locks against corrosion. Its durability also means that there's no excuse for not securing your bicycle, even if the weather is bad and you worry about the lock getting dirty.
