Road ID Review and Giveaway



If you are a runner, cyclist, triathelete or just an active person, Road ID is for you. 
In the event of an accident, if you can't speak for yourself, your Road ID will. 
It's not just a piece of gear - it's peace of mind.


I think every active person should have a Road ID - that's why I was especially psyched to review and host this giveaway for Road ID. 


For my Road ID, I chose the Road ID Elite, Original version.   
The Wrist ID Elite just might be the sexiest ID in the Road ID lineup. With its rubberized band and watch-style buckle, this sleek ID has you covered on the bike, in the boardroom and everywhere in-between. It's perfect for all of your outdoor activities and knows how to play it cool at formal events. With the Elite, you get valuable peace of mind with a look that’s just right for everyday wear. Yes, we know, it's a bit more expensive. But, when you put it on, you'll know why you spent the extra money. Get yourWrist ID Elite today...your life may depend on it. Available in eight colors and both Original and Interactive versions. It's fully adjustable, so one size fits all.
My first inclination was to order one in black (boring), next thought was blue, but finally decided on purple because it's a bit flashier.  I went through the prompts on the ordering page and listed my name, birth year, city, state, country, K's and my father's phone numbers, allergies, blood type and for the last line - SUPER SEXY MAMA.  Pretty bold huh? Can you guess who suggested it?  The kids liked it also :).  Speaking of kids, we'll be ordering one for Tazer next.  He has shown us that he is responsible riding his bike and walking throughout the neighborhood either by himself or with friends (slowly pushing and expanding his boundaries).  I will forever worry, but a Road ID would provide a bit of assurance while he's out.  It's hard to let them go...




As for the fit, I cut the rubberized band to my wrist size.  It has a satin stainless watch-type closure for easy on/off.  I've worn it for a couple runs and while biking with no problems.  It's comfortable, and while an additional bracelet could have been too much, it wasn't.  When finished - a quick rinse and it's ready for my next adventure!    


It really does provide me (and my family) peace of mind wearing it, especially on my long runs and outside of our neighborhood.

  2. I would wear a Road ID when I run in our neighborhood. I have found that a lot of drivers are oblivious to runners and don't even check cross walks or try to go through them without waiting for me. I have been scared a couple of times so this would at least make things a little safer should the worst happen.

  7. Good idea to get one for your son. I don't have a Road ID or anything like it, and I'm not even good about taking ID with me when I run or ride. I should be better about that.

    I'm training for a 12-hour adventure race in September and considering another marathon and possibly a mountain bike epic (made even more epic by my hideously slow pace).

    I'm not entering, though, because I'm not sure it would be fair to everybody else. :)

  10. But Kate must win, otherwise the universe might tilt on its axis and terrible things could happen. On the other hand, it might be nice for someone else to have a chance.

  11. i would wear Road Id several times a week this summer when i run at a local park or at some races around town. I've considered the whole stick a label in your shoe w/ your info idea but i think a Road id bracelet would certainly be more noticeable and helpful in an emergency!

  13. I would probably wear Road ID pretty much everywhere, but especially on my runs alone in my neighborhood and on the bike trail (never know when you'll get run over by an angry biker!).
