Product Reviews

  1. Great for Cycling Races

    Posted by

    We've put these through the ringer, in extreme rain, heat and everything in between...and we've had the best read rates we've seen in any event. I simply cannot recommend these enough. We adhered ours to synthetic numbers and told riders to wear them on their backs. Using overhead readers, rates were well over 99% with a single tag per rider.

  2. Good service, but ultimately a disappointing tag...

    Posted by

    I used these in conjunction with a cloth bib made by Champion Systems and unfortunately had very poor read rates. The adhesive backing wasn't quite up to the task and as the day went on I found that many racers lost their tags. Adhesion was especially poor in the rain or as the bibs got wet with sweat.

    ***atlasRFIDstore response:***
    First, thank you for your detailed review; this sort of feedback is very valuable to us and other customers. After taking your feedback to the manufacturer, we've been informed that the adhesive doesn't work well with cloth bibs due to the porous nature of cloth, which effectively limits the amount of surface to which the adhesive can bond. In short, these tags will NOT work well on cloth and, if used on cloth, are prone to eventually fall off.

    The manufacturer recommends using these tags on paper or synthetic bibs. Lastly, while the wetness may have exacerbated the issue of the adhesive incompatibility with cloth, wetness should not affect the adhesive when applied to a non-cloth bib.

    Thank you again for taking the time to leave us feedback!

  3. Great foam back custom chips

    These shortdipole chips are great. I love the customization and the foam backing is top quality. As a race timer these will save you lots of time. Thank you Atlas RFID for a great product and customer service.
