The UK's most trusted forensic security marking system for your bicycle - “DATATAG PROTECTS - FOR LIFE!”
What is it?
The Datatag Ultimate Cycle system consists of multi-layered security marking technologies
Visible and stealth identification technologies mark your whole bike Often thieves nowadays target bikes for their valuable components such as groupsets, forks, suspension shocks, wheels, etc. and so just marking your frame won't be a deterrent. Datatag protects your whole bike, not just your frame.
Easy to install with simple online registration
This system has combined all of our cycle technologies into one ultimate 'kit' – this allows you to only fit the components that best suit your bicycle composition whether it be carbon, steel, alloy or titanium.
Why fit it?
True identification of ownership with registration specific to you
Acts as a true deterrent to theft Thieves will generally target bikes that won't cause them issues, ones which can easily be sold on. Datatag, with its permanent identification technologies, makes life difficult for thieves as it can quickly be established that the bike is stolen and as such they target bikes that don’t have Datatag fitted.
Aids the Police in recovery and identification of ownership Thousands of bikes are stolen each year and most are never returned to their rightful owners as police cannot identify who they belong to! Datatag overcomes this problem by providing a quick and easy way in which the police can check a bikes true identity. Our 24/7 police contact centre is on hand to confirm ownership and thereby help police.
Unique benefits of having the system installed on your bike
