Whether you are just biking around a park path or going on a long ride into the country, nothing beats pushing down the pedals and riding with the wind blowing through your hair (or through your helmet — safety first!).
Most people take their smartphones with them while they ride, and many cyclists like to use them to navigate on long trips. The ride can get bumpy, so we have to figure out how to keep these expensive gadgets safe. You may want to get a bike phone holder, designed specifically with your bike in mind. Here are the best phone mounts you can buy!
Best bike phone holders:
Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best bike phone holders regularly.
1. Ram Mounts RAM-B-149Z-UN7U
Ram Mounts is a renown brand among motorcyclists. These are built with strong materials and a superior design meant for taking on high speeds, bumpy roads, and rumbling motors. Of course, if this mount can handle a motorcycle, it should also manage on a bicycle. It isn’t cheap at $49.99, but it’s great for those who want more peace of mind.
2. Widras Bike Phone Mount
3. Quad Lock Motorcycle Handlebar Mount
Here’s another high-quality motorcycle mount that can also be used on bicycles. The Quad Lock mount is known for its unique mounting system, which attaches to a phone case with a twist. iPhone, Galaxy, and Pixel users can get cases with the mounting system. Otherwise, you will need one of their universal mounts, which attaches to any flat surface.
4. Taotronics Bike Phone Mount
This mount uses non-slip rubber grips to keep phones from moving inside. It also can hold smartphones up to 3.94 inches in width, while also rotating the phone 360 degrees for the best angle. Silicone rubber on the handlebar side will also keep the mount from moving and the phone clap can be undone with just one push of a button.
5. Nite Ize Wraptor
The Nite Ize Wraptor is not as solid as some of the devices listed here, but it is a very convenient phone holder. It can be installed with no tools in seconds, as it uses a simple strap to attach itself to any handlebar. The mounting strap should also fit most smartphones, and has proven to be a good method for keeping phones secured.
6. Ibera Bicycle Top Tube Phone Bag
The Ibera Bicycle Top Tube Phone Bag is a pouch that includes a transparent cover for your smartphone so users can see and access its display. The ArcEnCiel Roswheel pouch is designed to mount on a bicycle’s frame, rather than the handlebar. The pouch can hold a smartphone that is up to 5.5 inches. Other features include velcro straps for easy mounting, a convenient headphone opening, and a waterproof design.
