A smartphone mount, whether in your car,  bicycle or motorbike, can make things a lot easier when you’re on the go. Hands free and still accessible it’s almost like turning your phone into something from a sci-fi movie. With a good mount, your phone, with all its convenience and functionality, becomes an extension of your ride. Just switch on voice control and you can ask for directions, order a pizza, or even go shopping all while focusing most of your attention on the road ahead of you. Pretty cool is what we say. They can also make driving a car or riding a bike a lot safer for you. The same goes for surrounding pedestrians, drivers and, of course, your phone.

Speaking of keeping your phone safe. Having a good case is also a good investment. Click here to view our case selections.

It is advised that would be buyers consider this before purchasing and, if after purchase, the mount doesn’t seat securly, add an after market adhesive to ensure stability of the mount while driving.

This is another online best seller and one that offers a rather unique mounting method: it physcially inserts into your car’s CD player. This may sound like a rather strange thing at first but, when you consider the ergonomic placement of your car’s CD player, it may not sound so strange at all. Because CD players in cars are strategically place to allow easy access for both drive and passenger, this mounting method actually makes access to your smartphone while either driving or sitting in the passenger’s seat extremely easy.

For those who may be wondering: YES, you can still play CDs in your car while the mount is inserted (for those of us who still use CDs).CD slot Car Mount by MPOW best car and bike phone mounts

The mount in action. Ultra stable but still allowing easy access. The vertical placement of the phone, up and away from the console controls, offers a minimal profile while stilly being fully functional and accessible. Litte design touches like this can go a long way toward increasing the creature comforts of your ride. There really is only so muc space in a car and every little bit counts.

 

The mount can also function as a stand alone operation to turn your phone into something like the equivalent of a laptop screen enabling hands free viewability and things like voice interaction.

Designed for rough and rugged use, this mount/case combination can handle just about anything a serious cyclist can through at it. That includes both mountain and road riders. Despite this, the mount is extremely minimal and simple in it’s design relying on the stiff strength of aluminum and a precisely engineered design to give you maximum protection with minimum material. The company offers a range of models designed specifically for certain companies and phone generations. Including iPhone 4 thru 8 and a number of Samsung Galaxy models. There is also a universal version available but one would be advised to do their due research before placing an order for one as this setup is designed for a very precise fit; almost like becoming one with your bike.

The mount itself is made from aircraft grade aluminum with its two amazing qualities of being extremely light (1.9 ounces) and extremely strong. It bolts directly into the stem of your bike and essentially becomes an integral part of your set up. Simply pop the stem cap, spend about a minute switching out the hardware, and you’re good to go. Very easy installation for such a secure unit.

The phone case, which is included in the package, secures to the mount via a lock/magnet combination. The magnet is engineered as a second line of security for really hard shocks and there is also a lanyard included which will keep your phone from going too far should you somehow manage to detach it from the mount when riding (highly unlikely but Rokform doesn’t mess around)

The case, which is made from high strength plastic, is compatible with all of Rokform’s other mounts. And they have a lot. As they say themselves on their Amazon store “Not only do we have bike mounts we have motorcycle mounts, tripod adapters, suction mounts, universal magnetic car mounts, universal twist lock mounts, golf swing video analyzer, belt clips, stands, stroller mounts, wall mounts, vehicle mounts, running armbands, bundle kits and more.” So should you need a mount elsewhere, the included case will come in handy.

Another nice feature of this mount is that the angle of view is adjustable from from -20 to +55 degrees allowing a high degree of possible configurations for different stem assemblies. It will fit well and look good on both road and mountain bikes.

The mount is made by a small company in California that has an excellent reputation in their field. This mount will be something of an investment at around $100 +/- but will definitely not disappoint. Recommended for the serious mountain or road cyclist looking for serious protection for their phone.

Universal Bike Mount by ADURO

This mount is specifically designed for rides of the two wheeled variety. While fully compliant with handlebars of a diameter of 1.5″/3.81cm or less most buyers go with this product for their bicycle. There are those who use it for their motorbike but we would recommend the mount listed directly below it that’s your plan.

This mount is very adjustable and offers a locked in position of both horizontal and vertical for your phone. So you can go for a low profile vertical lock to reduce drag or a wider, vertical setting for greater viewability. The highly adaptive nature of the mechanism allows a secure fit for phones with a screen size of up to 5.5″/13.97cm. That’s plenty enough to accomodate the majority of smartphones on the market today.

There is an extra security option included in the rubber like web which enshmeshes your smartphone to ensure your it’s place in the mount no matter how rough your ride may be. The mount is, by all standards, rather minimal but has been consistently rated very highly in online reviews. And, when you see the price, you may be surprised by what you get for your money.

Metal Bike & Motorcycle Mount by CAW.CAR Accessories

Metal Bike & Motorcycle Mount by CAW.CAR Accessories best car and bike phone mountsClick on image to view on Amazon

Currently unavailable in EU but to take a gander at popular items of a similar nature on Amazon EU please click here.

This mount is designed specifically for motorcycles. Yes, it will function just as well on your bicycle. But it will definitely take the use and abuse of the speeds and forces you put your motorbike through, too. Not a lot of manufacturers can say that about their mounts. So, if you’ve been looking for a mount you know can take a beating, this is it.

There are actually two models for this mount made of different material. One is made from super durable plastic. The other is mad of plastic with a heavy duty metal clamp. The average price difference between the two is around $10.

We would recommend the metal option for motorbikes and the plastic one for bicycles. Unless, you want a super-solid mount for your downhill bike.

Left: Full durable plastic mount. Right: combination durable plastic body with heavy duty metal clamp.

As the manufacturers say, the fit of this mount is  “OUT AND OUT UNIVERSAL – we mean it, mount any phone to any bike or motorcycle with tubular handlebars! “.  This mount has received massive reviews online and is a consistent best seller. One purchaser mentioned that he got his bike up to a 110mph/176kmh with this mount on (the metal clamp version) with no problems

 

The phone clamp offers two mechanisms to secure your phone. The first is  standard springloaded clamp which grips your phone from the sides. The second is an extremely durable, high tension rubber web which encloses the phone and pulls it down into the clamp from all sides. Great for those times when you’d say to yourself “hold on tight!”

 

The mount also has 360 degree rotation capacity with a locking mechanism. So you can set it at a viewable angle with just about any handlbar set up.

This mount will fit phones up to a width of 3.7 inches. Most phones are somewhere around 3 inches wide. So a 3.7 inch phone is a very wide phone.

Overall an excellent option for the money and one of the very few mounts out there which the manufacturers guarantee will work on your motorbike.
