The summer months are the prime season for anyone to get on their bicycle and enjoy the outdoors, but the fall can be a great time too. 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. But how do you keep these devices safe during the journey? You may want to get a phone holder for bikes, designed specifically for that transportation method
Enkeeo Bike Phone Mount
The Enkeeo bike mount is a universal product designed to hold nearly any smartphone. The mount has a clamp and grip, both of which have silicone gel and are designed to keep the phone scratch free and avoid any issues with bumps.
