Basic Bit of Kit… but with issues. First up, I’m not a big fan of the GoPro mounting system as it’s way too limited in its ability to rotate freely like a ball mount. It’s OK for direct mounting where ever that’s possible (like on the front or top of a helmet) but mount it to the side of that same helmet and the only way to twist and turn the camera to where you want it (unless it’s looking straight in the direction of the mount) is to add more adapters into the equation. More adapters means more length, and more length = more…

A tip for buyers I see that a couple of users had an accident where the camera fell off its mount, probably due to the 3M adhesive not holding well, or the camera was used too soon after the adhesive was applied. I would suggest attaching a tether to the camera, directly to an opening in the helmet. By doing that, you protect your $300 camera in case the adhesive/mount does not hold well. To me, this makes perfect sense to avoid losing a camera.

good item works if you know how to use it. seen them survive pretty gnarly moto cross/bmx/mountain biking/even a fall from space […]. make sure sticker is applied correctly and does not receive much water damage. and always tie a safety.
