Californian company JOBY shot to fame a decade ago, when they redefined the tripod industry with the innovative GorillaPod™ flexible tripod. Now they have added to their cycling range of products.
“Cyclists of all kinds want to capture views from their ride, but are limited in the amount of space they have on their bike to mount accessories,” said Kate Farmer, JOBY brand director. “We wanted to create something that helped streamline your accessories while still providing you a reliable, durable hold. The JOBY mount isn’t just designed for action cams, but can also accommodate multiple devices including a Garmin® computer, and lights for added visibility. The versatile mount enables cyclists to connect their devices to their handlebars or seat post for an alternative footage perspective and can easily detach to go with you.”
The platform fits a variety of bike handlebars that measure 22.2mm to 35mm, including mountain, road, hybrid, cruiser and fixie models. Three attachment points allow consumers to mount their action video cam at any preferred shooting angle: top, front or back. The Action Bike Mount is built for simultaneous use of devices and accessories with 1/4″-20 attachments, such asthe JOBY Bike lights, a GoPro® camera, a Garmin® computer (mount included). No tools are needed to attach or detach items and three rubber inserts are included allowing the mount to fit most handlebars.
The Action Bike Mount & Light Pack includes front white light and rear red visibility lights – also with JOBY’s 1/4″-20 attachment point. Designed for true flexibility, the lights may be attached to the mount or to another point on a bike with included stretch bands. The lights turn on with a simple push of a button for single light or flashing mode and last up to eight hours.
The Action Bike Mount (US MSRP $34.95) and Action Bike Mount & Light Pack (US MSRP $69.95) are part of the JOBY Action Series of lightweight, portable, sturdy and high-quality action video cam accessories. They sell online and ship to the UK from $15 but also have their products getting into distribution over here.
