Data-Tag Stealth Security Identification Systems for Bicycles

When even the strongest bike lock isn't enough Datatag UV Stealth system for cycles offers a multi-layered approach to identification, that makes life difficult for even professional thieves!

Simple to fit and both include visible and hidden identifiers including the latest state-of-the-art stealth UV etching that won't visibly mark your bike and gives your bike a unique finger print. Bike theft is well known to be a problem and many owners think that just by registering them on a database, theft will miraculously stop, but the truth is that registration without the right identification system just doesn't work.

The Datatag systems offers premium identifiers combined with probably the most comprehensive database of its kind on the market today. Equally important, Datatag works with the Police to back up the product and gives free scanning equipment and database access on a 24/7 basis as well as technical training. Owners of Datatagged cycles also benefit from reduced premiums from the major insurers.

The Datatag UV Stealth Cycle System is ideal for all cycle frames and is a Police Preferred Crime Prevention Product.

The system includes the following state-of-the-art technology:

Stealth UV Etching

The system contains 4 UV Stealth Etches to permanently mark your frame, forks and wheels.

The unique, almost invisible UV etching system, form a major part of the risk deterrent and subsequent identification. These stealth UV etches won't visibly mark your cycle paintwork!

Ultimate TE Label

These specially designed Datatag tamper evident labels contain a unique cycle identification number and QR code. They warn off any potential thieves and are both attractive and impossible to remove without damage.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Peace of Mind
by Tim T on 23/02/2016

Have used Datatag products for years and whilst the change from fitting a transponder to frame etching had me a little worrried.....with the previous system I had the comfort of knowing any stolen bike could be located. Anyway its cheap insurance that is easy to apply and gives you a certain amount of peace of mind.

Datatag and insurance
by Chris B on 13/11/2015

This product secured me a discount with Velosure insurance - it is easy to fit and hopefully will do the job - as yet untested - of returning my bike to me if it is stolen. Having had a bike stolen in the past I feel it is value for money (potentially!)

Datatag peace of mind
by Nick R on 29/08/2015

I've used similar Datatag products on motorcycles and know they work. This was easy to install and should the worst happen, can help identify your bike if its found

Bike Locks Guide

What type of bike lock do I need?

Cable Lock | Use in low crime areas

These are the lightest bike locks. They’re very flexible and easy to carry in your pocket or on your frame. Great as a visual deterrent or secondary lock to fix quick release components to your frame.

Combination Lock | Use in low crime areas

These are cable locks with a 3 or 4-digit combination rather than a key lock. They are great if you don't want to worry about forgetting keys.

Chain Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

Chain locks are versatile. Thick chain links are great against bolt cutters. You can secure your bike to a range of bulky and unusual objects.

D-Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

D-locks are strong and often made from hardened steel. You get 360-degree protection for your frame. Locking mechanisms can resist picking and drilling while the D shaping makes leverage style attacks difficult.

Ground anchor | Use in high crime areas

Ground anchors are immovable platforms you fix to your garage floor or wall. When used with a strong chain lock you can fix your frame to the anchor. These offer the best protection for home storage.

How heavy is a bike lock?

In general, the stronger a bike lock, the heavier it will be.

Cable / Combo locks

These range from around 400g up to 1.25kg depending on the thickness and material used in the twisted cable. These are the lightest bike locks for easy transport.

Chain locks

Chain locks range from around 1kg up to 7kg for the thickest and toughest chain locks. Choose a mid-range weight if you're commuting daily to blend strength and weight.

D Locks

D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.

What is Sold Secure?

A great way to determine the quality of a bike lock is to see if it is Sold Secure Rated. This is a third party, independent rating system.

An approved lock is graded as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rating is chosen by how long it takes to break the lock and the tools needed to break it.

If you're planning on insuring your bike, many insurers will state you need a Sold Secure rated lock to make a successful claim.

Typically a bronze rating covers a bike up to the value of £500, silver up to £1,000 and gold for any bike worth over £1,000.

These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.
