ProChips can be used at many different types of sports. They come with ankle strap for use at triathlons, swimming and more.

The ultimate system for high-speed elite sports

All athletes have a ProChip FLEX attached to their ankle/wrist strap or bike in order to identify each participant and to record the exact time at which they pass the start, finish and intermediate time lines. Each ProChip sends out a unique signal to the ProChip system that is embedded in the track.

The ProChip FLEX: used for many different sports

The ProChip Flex can be used for many different types of sports. They come with ankle strap for use at triathlons, swimming and more. When used at cycling events it is recommended to mount the ProChip FLEX on the bicycle’s front fork, as close as possible to the front axle, by using cable ties.


Every MYLAPS ProChip FLEX comes with a subscription for 1, 2 or 5 years. After the initial subscription period, the subscription can be renewed.

Detection loops are installed in the track at the start and finish line and intermediate time points. The loops work as the system´s antennas and pick up the ProChips signals.

The detection loop can be installed in basically every type of surface.

  • Asphalt or concrete (not permanent): use industrial quality adhesive tape to affix the loop to the course. Make sure you use high quality tape to secure the tape to the road.
  • Ice: Cut slots of approximately 2 cm (1inch) deep in the ice, embed the loop wires and fill with water. Make sure to do this well in advance of an event, as the water will need some time to freeze.
  • Snow: cut slots in the snow, approximately 20 cm (8 inch) deep. Place the loop wires in the slot and fill them with snow.
