RaceDots™ are the simple, elegant and effective alternative to safety pins. Each RaceDot is a unique assembly of two magnets that lock together to hold your race number in place, but they never hurt your clothing.
RaceDots™ are made from extremely strong rare-earth magnets in a thin metal shell. The patent-pending design allows the two magnetic pieces to nest inside one another making for an extremely strong, hard-to-break bond. GORE-TEX®, thermal jackets, rainwear? No problem!
RaceDots™ hold fast through clothing, so you’ll never pierce or tear your favorite technical tee or cycling jersey again. Plus, the RaceDots™ shell is nickel-plated copper, so they will never rust and leave ugly stains no matter how much you sweat
Putting RaceDots™ on is a snap—no more pricked fingers! Plus, you can slide them around or hold a RaceDot in place and move your number underneath it for perfect placement. Try that with a safety pin!
RaceDots are available in several colors to match any outfit. Doing an overnight relay or an ultramarathon that starts and ends at night? You'll never fumble around in the dark with our reflective RaceDots.
Have a large team or event coming up? Custom RaceDots are ideal for matching team kits or as part of a fundraiser or special event. The minimum for customer orders is 500 RaceDots (100 5-packs/50 10-packs). Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Hi, I’m Jason Berry, the inventor and founder of RaceDots™. I’m an independent filmmaker, have been making sport documentaries for the past 15 years and have been racing bikes for just as long. I ride mountain, road, and cyclocross, and manage my own team, Gripped Racing.
Over the years I have had countless conversations with other athletes about the lack of alternatives for safety pins. I began experimenting with magnets and realized I was on to something. Once I shared the idea with fellow cyclists and runners, I knew it was worth a try. I sincerely hope you like our idea and will consider trying out RaceDots.
My company Gripped Films has been producing films all over the world for over 10 years. If you need some motivation while training, take a look at our video work.
We knew that RaceDots™ would appeal to a wide segment of athletes, so we turned to you—runners and walkers and cyclists of all kinds—to make RaceDots happen. We used the on-line crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise the funds we needed to bring RaceDots to market. And, boy, did you respond! We more than doubled our $30,000 fundraising goal by raising just over $69,000 in a little over a month. In the process, we became the third most-funded sports-related campaign on Indiegogo to date!
