The idTAG is not a requirement for basic registration, but to enjoy the full functionality of the idRIDER app and technology, purchase is absolutely necessary.  The military-grade idTAG may also act as deterrent if a would-be thief notices the colorful registration, and if stolen the tamperproof annealed aluminum takes a very long time to remove leaving obvious signs of removal and a residue that can only be cleaned with an industrial solvent.

Either way, compared to the competition, the near-indestructible idTAG is unbeatable. When paired with our add-on stealth tag greatly ensures the odds are in the favor of the idRIDER owner.

  • idTAG will help capture information about your bike to establish ownership, assisting with an insurance claim and recovery efforts with police in the event of loss
  • idTAG sticker helps act as a deterrent if a potential thief sees a bike with the idTAG
  • Military-grade, tamper-proof and weather resistant
  • Simply purchase, scan and add the idTAG anywhere on your ride for added protection

The registration process was quick and easy to register my family’s bikes. Now I have peace of mind knowing if something happens to my bike, I have a much better chance of getting it back.

Every responsible bike owner should take a few moments to register their bike with idRIDER. I did.

For anyone who thinks it’s not worth the 3 minutes to register your bike – think again.

idRIDER helps ensure stolen bikes do not end up on the used bicycle black market – and instead stay with their rightful owner.

I was so thankful that my bike was able to be identified and returned to me. Without proper identification of my bike, there was not a chance I was going to get it back. I was lucky that idRIDER was so careful and took time to find the punched in serial number. I wouldn’t expect that level of care from just anyone. Having a way to identify my bike was crucial to its return, and I think having various ways to identify and get the word out about stolen bikes can help to get them back to their owners.
