Los Angeles, CA (12 June 2009) – yikes ID, Inc., this week introduced its first
collection of identification products designed to change the way
cyclists, runners, and triathletes protect themselves while training.
Yikes ID’s innovative personal emergency identification
gear allows athletes to easily include their ID when they workout
because only yikes ID’s 'attach once, always there' tags integrate into
equipment athletes already use: helmets, shoes, bicycles. "Let’s face
it, accidents happen!" said Bruce Temesy, Founder and CEO of yikes ID,
Inc. "Competitive cyclists and runners don’t want to remember to wear
their identification every time they train, nor do they want to wear
products that aren’t part of their normal attire. They’ve asked for
streamlined identification that’s always there and yikes ID has
“Iam acutely aware of how important the timely gathering of vitalinformation can be when confronted with an emergency situation.”</span>
The yikes ID Helmet tag
is a highly visible identification that integrates into the design of a
rider’s helmet by attaching comfortably to the fitting system or chin
strap. MSRP: $12.99. The yikes ID Shoe tag
easily attaches to one’s running or hiking shoe laces. MSRP $13.99.
These custom laser engraved yikes ID tags are the industry’s lightest
IDs so performance isn’t impacted. Most importantly, EMT/First
Responders quickly recognize the tag’s purpose so if an athlete is
injured, they will be promptly identified and receive treatment based
on their vital medical needs, while affording friends and family
"I am acutely aware of how important the timely gathering of vital
information can be when confronted with an emergency situation." Said
Frank G. Piersol, LAPD Deputy Chief, Retired. "I would not consider
leaving home without my yikes ID."
"No road must go untraveled on my bike or trail unexplored on my runs". said Wendy Ingraham, Pro Triathlete with 9 Ironman wins and 10 Top 10 Hawaii finishes. "I love keeping my training fresh and adventures. This is made possible knowing if anything ever happened to me I could be identified with my yikes ID tag. It puts my husband at ease knowing that he would be contacted right away and my important information is at hand to medical emergency personal."
