Here at Muc-Off, we know how important your bike is to you, which is why we launched both the Secure Tag Holder and the Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder, to help protect you in the event of a bike theft.
A recent study from Direct Line Insurance showed that between April and August 2020, UK bicycle thefts exceeded 110k, whilst bike registration specialists 529 Garage found that the US experiences over 2m bike thefts every year, that’s one every 30 seconds! Data from Worldometers found that the number of new bikes produced in 2021 exceeded 150 million, so there has never been a more important time for riders to make sure they have extra security.
Secure Tag Holder
First up, what is the Secure Tag Holder?
The Muc-Off Secure Tag Holder is a simple solution to secure and install an Apple AirTag® to your bicycle frame using the bottle cage mounting holes, so you can track down your bike down in the event of theft. The tracker is housed in a machined aircraft grade 6061 aluminium body, that’s supplied with T25 security bolts and a security key for an extra level of protection against theft.
The Apple AirTag® allows you to track your bike with the Find My® app. Once it’s has been activated through the app, your tag will appear on the radar, allowing you to track your bike down.
Is it right for me?
The Secure Tag Holder is perfect for any road, gravel, MTB and commuter riders who want to add protection to their bike.
Whilst the holder is securely fixed under the bottle cage which makes it difficult to spot, it isn’t completely hidden from view.
Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder
What is the Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder?
The Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder is probably the most discreet way of installing an Apple AirTag® to your bike. It’s stowed inside a tubeless-ready tyre and rim, making it completely hidden from would-be bike thieves.
The Apple AirTag® is housed in a protective, 3-part silicone and rubber tubeless valve mount and comes in a choice of bases, so you can get an airtight seal against the rim during the installation. It also features a collapsible stem built-in to protect the rim and the AirTag® from high impacts, avoiding compression and rebound under extreme loads.
Is it right for me?
The Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder is the ultimate security partner for any MTB and Gravel riders running a tubeless set up.
Unfortunately, this first version is not compatible with tyres below 38mm (sorry roadies), but watch this space!
