Detection mats are placed at the start, finish and split timing locations. The mats serve as the system’s antennas and detect the signals sent out by the BibTags. We offer modular mats that allow you to create timing locations between 1 and 8 meters wide per system.

Timing & Scoring is the improved successor of ToolKit and offers a complete and easy to use software package to set-up and time a race and then to create and publish reliable results.

Tag options

The UHF timing solution with 1 tag and a thin spacer to save on expo space and shipping costs. The MYLAPS ThinTag is unique in the sports market and uses patented technology by MYLAPS.

The MYLAPS ThinTag is a reliable UHF timing solution that reduces handling and shipping cost because of a very thin (2mm) design. The ThinTag uses a spacer that is made of spongy material that only expands when it absorbs fluids. This technology is unique in the market and patented by MYLAPS.


The ThinTag spacers have a new improved adhesive layer. The rolls on which ThinTags are shipped have the spacer already applied. Should you have a ThinTag printer, you can print and encode the tag yourself without the need to apply the spacers after the process.

MYLAPS BibTags are the world’s standard in sports timing tags and require only one tag attached to the bib. BibTags are easy to use, for athletes and for race organizers.

The BibTag is attached to the back of the runner’s BIB number and sends out a unique signal. Each tag sends out a unique UHF signal that enables the detection mats to identify the athlete and record the exact time at which the athlete passes the mat. The tags are designed to withstand rain and sweat as the mechanical part of the tag is covered by a foam spacer.

Learn more about BibTags

The MultiSports Tag is designed and optimized for triathlons and mud runs and works with the MYLAPS BibTag timing system. The tags can be worn under a wetsuit: results are guaranteed since they have 3 integrated timing tags.

Reusable or disposable MultiSports Tag

We offer two versions of the MultiSports Tags, a disposable and a reusable one. The reusables can be collected, washed, stored, and used again after every event. Both tags feature the same benefits, but the reusable tags are made from longer-lasting and easily cleanable materials.

More on MultiSports Tags

The SeatPost Tag is the most elegant cycling tag in the industry. It’s designed to be user-friendly, accurate and according to the proven BibTag technology. Only compatible with SideAntennas.
