NEW GEAR: MedicAlert Biker Tag

MedicAlert and Biker Down have joined forces to create a new helmet tag, making it easier for first responders and emergency services staff to get their hands on a rider’s medical information should the worst happen and they’re involved in an accident.

The MedicAlert Foundation is a UK charity which provides a full medical ID service. With medical checks to ensure accurate details, your records are kept safe and made available in an emergency via a 24/7 hotline. Members wear medical ID jewellery containing vital information and the hotline number. However, in the case of a biker injury the jewellery may be hidden under heavy clothing – and that’s why MedicAlert has joined forces with Biker Down to release a new helmet tag.

The helmet tags are essentially small plastic pouches which attach to the side of a helmet – and can be torn open when needed, to release a piece of paper which contains a riders medical information. The clever solution helps first responders to ensure the injured biker is treated according to their specific needs.


MedicAlert are offering the helmet tags for free, for riders who join up to MedicAlert – and you can also get a £5 discount on membership (using code BD5). And for any riders who do not require the services of MedicAlert, the helmet tags are available for the price of a stamp addressed envelope.
