New device warns of overhead damage to your bike

car park damage to bicycle

Carrying a bicycle on a roof rack can be a perilous. As a provider of cycle insurance that covers against accidental damage we know all about the damage inflicted to a bike by the height restriction bars at the entrance of car parks.

But what if you don’t have a friendly insurance company to put everything right? Raacked is an ultrasonic sensor that sounds an alert when an obstruction approaches your roof-mounted equipment above or behind your vehicle.

Roof rack danger

The small transmitter unit can be placed anywhere on your roof rack and can detect items from 4ft to 12ft away. The receiver unit is then plugged into any device with a USB port.

Protection for you and your bike

ETA Cycle Insurance doesn’t just protect you against that moment you realise you have smashed the bike on your roof rack.

The one true test of a cycle insurance company is what happens when you make a claim – it’s why we don’t farm the process out to a third party like other providers. Your claim is dealt with by one of us here and you are always welcome to call us directly. It’s also the reason we will never devalue your bicycle, no matter how old it is.

You may have noticed we don’t claim to be the cheapest product on the market, but should you ever need to make a claim, you’ll understand why we consider ourselves the best. Perhaps it’s why we are awarded the title of Britain’s most ethical insurance company year after year.

Should the worst happen, and you are involved in a collision, we have an excellent legal team ready to fight your corner. We also offer up to £250 for a hire bike if yours is vandalised, damaged accidentally or stolen.

Over the last 27 years we have earned an excellent reputation for cover that is comprehensive and a relationship with our customers that is friendly and fair. Whether you are looking for cycle insurance for commuting, mountain biking, triathlon, sportives or just ambling in the park with your family, our comprehensive policy has you covered.
