Bike thieves suck! And unfortunately in most cases, if your bike ends up stolen, your chances of getting it back are slim to none. While there are several different wireless trackers on the market, including Apple’s new AirTag, there isn’t really a dedicates option for attaching the tracker to a bike, until now!
The new OMNI TRKR is the brainchild of Steven Blue, a consumer packaged goods and product development specialist from Colorado. The concept was born after Steven’s heavy-duty lock was cut and his bike was stolen and he was later intrigued by the Apple AirTag as a way to track a bike after it’s taken. The OMNI TRKR is a bike-mountable housing designed to accommodate Apple Airtag, Tile Mate, and Chipolo ONE Spot trackers. The housing attaches to the bike using any single boss and provides a discreet and secure option for keeping a close eye on your bike’s location.
While current prototypes are 3D-printed, the plan is to produce an injection molded version for the final design, which will be made in Denver, Colorado. There’s currently a Kickstarter campaign underway to help get the project off the ground. Those who pledge $25 or more can get early bird pricing on a single OMNI TRKR, with or without a locking bolt, and $30 will get a single OMNI TRKR for folks outside of the US.
