Which Phone Mount? - December 28, 2018, 11:45 AM

Okay, so I went cheap with two different options (under 20$ on ebay) and they don't securely hold my phone at all.

I need a mount that if I come down a little hard, the phone does not knock off. I don't stunt by any means, but I do fool around every now and then and don't want to lose my phone.

Can any one recommend a bar attached phone holder (preferably under 60 bucks) that truly holds a larger phone securely and has some vibration reduction?

With a 3 piece defender case its 3.5 x 6.5 x 3/4")

Perfect Squeeze Phone Mount

Lots of reviews in the advrider forum and has it's own thread. Made by riders, for riders. No, I'm not associated with either.

I saw this one, but the max opening is the same size as my phone, I have a feeling its going to squeeze my side buttons (volume, power and active keys)

The only way I'm hitting 200 is down a ramp and off a Clift.
IF it works at that speed it should be good for what I need. Thanks Shiphteey

I use Ram Mount's X-grip. Works great, though you do have to be careful as to where the fingers hold on. Side button layouts are sometimes in inconvenient places.

X grip works well. There are 2 other larger sizes. One is a phone/tablet size, the other is the full fledged tablet size.

This. Slight annoyance but it's a solid phone mount

Yep, took some finagling buts it's on there rock solid. This is a very sturdy mount, really well made.



Thanks for the suggestions and confirmations guys!
