Iphone X Bikes

Quad Lock iPhone X case is mounted to bikes that are perfectly safe during the ride. These slim & strong cases come in standard as well as large sizes. Actually simple in design but doing a nice job. You can adjust at an angle and take photos with full security of the phone.

The Quad Lock bike kit is a two-part set, which lets you choose the case according to the kind of smartphone you have, and then pairs that up with the base handlebar mount, which cost me 70 USD/70 EUR for my phone. Various other bike phone mounts are available from other brands, like the Quad Lock Case. I enjoy (and frequently need) to take photos during many of my rides, and the Quad Lock iPhone X case, along with some styles of mounting, are the easiest ways to keep my camera safe & within easy reach. After riding on 23 smartphone mounts for bikes over 90 miles of both flat and rugged roads, we have concluded that the Quad Lock mounts and Quad Lock cases (which are available for both the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy versions) are what we would use for our phones.

Remember, your bike mount needs to be made from strong materials, to keep my latest iPhone safe. Before placing your order of any bike mount, be sure that it has strong hold on your iPhones housing.

You might shift the Z bike mount around in the stem, needing to adjust a soft, polyurethane, thermoplastic shell, but you will not be losing your phone in this fashion. Either before or after the case is locked onto the Z Bike Mount — and I found this easiest before — you can put a clear case on top of your phone. You slide the phone inside the soft, thermoplastic polyurethane cover (a small opening in the back leaves your camera exposed) and then secure the Z Bike Mount onto the stem using spongy rubber O-rings. A section of the cases polycarbonate backing snaps onto the mount; twist the phone clockwise by 45 degrees, and it locks in place, in either portrait or landscape.

You can mount the Z Bike Mount on the handlebars if you like, though Zefal does not state that, possibly because that placement might cause your knees to bump into your phone while riding off-saddle — not likely, but possible, depending on how you set up the bike. Both the phone cover and the universal quad-lock adapter twist and lock in place on the mount, which itself clips into the bikes handlebar.

Zefals are different designs, and are not compatible with each other, but they both involve securing a phone case to click into place on a Z-bike mount, and requiring a specific, conscious action to unlock the locks. Unlike most bike mounts, which feature a silicone rim, this one by Morpheus Labs has a powerful magnet that keeps the iPhone X locked into position. My iPhone X case itself is another two-part affair, comprising a hard-plastic TPU-fitted case with the Female Quarterlock interface at the rear, but it also offers a secondary, padded silicone covering that slides on top of your whole phone + hard case, providing water resistance for your screen, rear camera and the sides holes, called The Poncho (available for an additional EUR25).

The Slim Mount Case fits both iPhone X & 6/7/8, both Standard & Large sizes. Narrow and slim, we like the way that VUPs silicone mount does not take any room on our bike handlebars, and it keeps the phone safe and in-focus, making it easier to access and see. This case did move more than we wanted it to, so we would not recommend this mount for a high-performance mountain bike with a big phone.

The VUP silicone mount and Ailun silicone strap are both great, as you can pick the case that appeals to you, rather than being limited to the relatively limited selection of cases to mount a phone on your bike, and they fit different sizes and models of phones. The VUP Silicone Mount is one of the less expensive bike phone mounts that you can mount to a bike, the Ailun Silicone Strap works just as well. Visnfas bike mount is built to handle a weight of 3kg, so maybe as a result, it will be able to hold the phone steady even when riding on steps.

Accepting anything but iPads, this outboard mount is nearly universal, and also has the advantage of fitting into a pocket when it is not being used on the bike. While it is simplistic in design, this bicycle phone mount does the job nicely, and it is easy to use in your buggy, shopping cart, or bike too. This mount and case system is also the most expensive one in our round-up, but if you love having good tools to go along with your good bikes, this sturdy, attractive system is going to work great for anything from fast, simple daily usage to longer, rougher trails. With options for fitting just about any iPhone, Topeaks Ridecase system includes a case for the phone and a stiff, multi-positional mount that attaches to your bike.

In addition to bikes and motorbikes, Insten phone holders can be installed on strollers and treadmills. The silicone bands and adjustable clips on this mount keep the iPhone securely planted. Once the Insten Phone Holder is mounted to the bike handlebars, you just have to open the waterproof pouch and slip in my latest iPhone. The only thing making this experiment possible is the companys new F3 Cycling Phone Mount ($60), which screws on your bike through an adjustable, stem-cap-mounted attachment, and attaches to the phone via four neodymium magnets.

The iPhone 8 Plus case we tested did not hinder phone functionality, and based on the Quad Lock mounting cases we tested for other guides, we were sure that it would keep the phone safe during everyday usage. In fact, during my first week or two with the Quad Lock case, I actually dropped an expensive smartphone several times as it just fell out of my hands while using it everyday. All-in-all, having spent most of a year riding with an iPhone easily available by the stem or bars, it feels weird to jump onto the bike and instead have the phone tucked into my pocket. Asking leads me to consider if advances in phones and apps may have made the bike computer unnecessary.

With its huge array of various mounts, the Tigra is almost certain to have a solution to mount a phone on any bit of your bike that appeals.
