OVERVIEW

Your Bike is Freedom. Never Lose it.

Boomerang was founded by a group of avid cyclists. Our mission to develop a line of bike theft protection products brought forth the Boomerang CycloTrac. The device is a portable tracker which uses a motion-sensing alarm and GPS technology to keep your bike safe, no matter where you travel.

We are in the production stage but pre-ramp.  We have had revenue of $104,000 in 2019, $192, 000 in 2020 and $133, 000 YTD 2021. We are optimizing all areas of the company before we ramp to high volume. Our 3,000 customers growing to 5,000 before the year end give us a large user base and a lot of data  to understand where we need to optimize before scaling.

THE PROBLEM

Bike Theft is Common in Cities Around the World

Bike theft plagues every city. While 15 to 20 million adult bikes are sold each year in the United States, several million bikes are stolen annually.

THE SOLUTION

Double Down On Your Bike Protection

Boomerang’s solution is the Cyclotrac V2, a bike Alarm and GPS tracker that attaches to your bike. The device includes a built-in alarm system and runs on Cloud based Software through an App. The GPS tracker can attach to your bike in multiple ways, but the most common attachment is under the water bottle cage. 

When our customer leaves their bike at the coffee shop or store, they arm the alarm with the app.  If anyone touches the bike, they are greeted with an audible alarm and the bike owner receives a text message and phone notification. 

Our technology requires a cellular data plan. Our customers pay us $3.90 per month and we pay the carriers. We make roughly 20% of margin on the hardware and 92% of margin on the data plan. 

THE MARKET

A Million Dollar Opportunity: Disrupting the Bike Theft Industry

The bike market is growing daily. E-bikes are also on the rise, with a projected 130 million e-bikes to be sold globally between 2020 and 2023. Despite the number of bikes being sold, we believe there are few companies targeting bike theft and we are the only company with an audible alarm system. 

As far as we know, Boomerang provides a solution other competitors do not. 

OUR TRACTION

An 80% Customer Satisfaction Rate 

As of August 2021, we have 3,000 customers paying us $3.90 each month.  By December of 2021, we project reaching 5,000 customers. 

We received an 80% satisfaction rating in a recent survey with customers.  We are confident in our next firmware and app release and anticipate that we can achieve an 85% to 90% satisfaction rating.
