JOBY connects to bikes, batteries

joby bikeJOBY has something new for you action camera users, a multi-device bike mount designed to fit most handlebars. The Action Bike Mount provides a variety of configurations for action cam mounting, enabling cycling enthusiasts to capture their biking experience from the angle they want.

And apparently it’s not just for action cams, also able to 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.

The platform fits handlebars from 22.2 mm to 35 mm. Three attachment points allow mounting the 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. No tools are needed to attach or detach items and three rubber inserts are included allowing the mount to fit most handlebars.

With this tool, you can use the grip alone or pair it with an extra ¼-20 accessory. An included USB charging cable enables charging the action video cam or smartphone while in use. The adjustable wrist tether provides added security and may be detached when not needed.

All of the Action Series products come with a built-in, standard GoPro mount and thumbscrew, plus a top pin to use with other action cams with a ¼-20 attachment point. Removing the GoPro mount makes each of the Action Series products compatible with other action video cams.

The Action Battery Grip features a bottom mount to attach to a tripod for an eye-level, hands-free set-up.
