Wheeltags has announced a new series of designs for cyclists and triathletes alike to tag their ride and Roll with StyleÃ¢â€žÂ¢.
“After our initial launch with Series One, we received amazing feedback from customers and fellow cyclists. They gave us some great design ideas and we decided to roll forward with a new series, just in time for the spring riding season. With some patriotic influenced designs to Asian dragons, we had a great time working on these new designs, adding in bolder colors and even the new 25mm tag size, to fit the popular 38mm rims we felt was overlooked in our Series One launch” said Kevin Koval, Sales Director and one of the founding three members of WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢.
The WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ brand was inspired by the vibrant imagery and evolving art form of graffiti and the artists’ stylized signatures, or “tags”. Encouraging cyclists to put their own signatures on their rides, WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ launched with “Series One” in the spring of 2008 and the new Series Two helps to round out the longer term product development plans.

WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ were designed to be compatible with various wheel materials, rim depths and are flexible enough to conform to dimpled rims. The WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ are sold by the wheel in two different application options which allow the customer to create two different types of affects, as well as tremendous creative freedom across their bike. The installation of a set of tags on one wheel is no more time consuming than changing a flat and instructions are included with each WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ order, as well as a small tool to help with the process. An online video of an installation is also available on the WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ website. Weighing only 2g* PER tag (for the 38mm), cyclists concerned about additional weight can make educated application decisions accordingly. Sizes are based on minimum rim depth and an easy to read size chart is available on Wheeltags.com to help riders select the correct size for their wheels, regardless of brand. Clinchers and tubulars alike can have WheeltagsÃ¢â€žÂ¢ applied to their rims.
WheeltagsÃ‚Â are now available in 16mm, 25mm, 38mm, 60mm and disc sizes, with retail prices starting at $38 (US). Series Two and Series One can be purchased on www.wheeltags.com
