The Abus Granit Detecto X-Plus 8077 alarm produces a high-pitched sound of over 100 dB, fairly easy to recognize and hear in most situations, alerting owner or passers-by about the tampering. The disc brake recognition system makes sire the alarm does not go off when the lock in in your topcase, and the hardened steel construction and patented X-Plus cylinder make sure the Abus Granit Detecto X-Plus 8077 is a nut that's really hard to crack.
