Just in time for the summer! If you’re the type that likes to hit up the mountain trails with your bike, but you have come to rely on your smartphone for everything from mobile music to GPS navigation, then this new product from Bracketron could be a good fit. Literally.
Called the All-Weather Soft Case Bike Mount, it is a mobile device mount that’ll accept not only your iPhone, but also a variety of MP3 players, smartphones, and other similarly-sized electronics. They say that they are targeting both recreational and competitive cyclists. Basically, you can mount your mobile device to your handlebars while still being able to use the touchscreen behind the clear protector. And yes, the whole shi-bang is weather resistant, in case you happen to get caught in a shower.
No tools are needed, since this’ll mount with an adjustable C-clamp. That should fit most handlebars with its three latch levels. I’m not much of a cyclist, especially when it comes to mountain trails, but I might break out the bike for some city rides this summer. This would certainly come in handy for that. Find the All-Weather Soft Case Bike Mount now for $39.95 through Bracketron.com. It’ll hit REI retail stores next month too.
