Muc-Off has introduced its latest innovation called the Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder, a unique hidden bike tracking solution that allows for an Apple AirTag to be stowed inside the tire and rim of a tubeless-compatible wheel, providing a covert tracking solution that’s completely hidden from bike thieves.
Designed for use with an Apple AirTag (not included), the Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder is housed in a protective, 3-part silicone and rubber tubeless valve mount that’s supplied with a range of tubeless valve bases, ensuring an airtight seal against the rim and tubeless tire.
Also built-in to protect the rim and the AirTag from high-impacts, is a sacrificial stem that compresses and rebounds under extreme loads. Although the holder will absorb impacts, it’s secured to the valve via a durable stem mount that allows sealant and air to flow through the valve without rattling inside the rim and tire.
Additionally, the Apple AirTag itself works by allowing users to track any item from their phone, using the Find My app. Once activated, any item the tag is connected to appears on the radar within the app, so tracking one’s bike down is as simple as looking on the map.
According to a study from Direct Line Insurance, between April and August 2020, UK bicycle thefts exceeded 110,000, while bike registration specialists 529 Garage reported that the US experiences over 2 million bike thefts every year, that’s one every 30 seconds. Moreover, aggregated data from Worldometers suggests that the number of new bikes produced in 2021 will exceed 150 million by year end, so there’s never been a more important time for bike owners to equip themselves with the added security the Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder provides.
“Technologies like the Apple Airtag can be a great defense against would-be bike thieves. This is what led us to develop our Tag Holders, we wanted to give riders secure and thief-proof ways of fixing the tracker to their bikes. The newest offering – the Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder – is a completely unique undercover solution unlike anything we have seen on the market so far. We will continue to embrace emerging technologies to enhance every rider experience, as we continue our exciting program of innovation in the future,” says Alex Trimnell, CEO at Muc-Off.
The Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder and the Secure Tag Holder follows Muc-Off’s recent launch of its new Bike Insurance product, provided by NextGen, offering several innovative benefits including a multi-bike discount, free upgrade coverage and no renewal price hikes.
The Stealth Tubeless Tag Holder is available directly from Muc-Off, or through its dealer network for $19.99, which requires a set of black Muc-Off 44mm Tubeless Valves that retail for $44.99.
