The video above shows the iPhone 5 edition. This has since been upgraded to allow you to plug in your charger, while the iPhone is inside the mount. However, you can no longer rotate the mount.
Drop it in a bucket
You can drop the Tigra BikeConsole iPhone 5/5S bike mount in to a bucket and water won’t get in. Whilst I wouldn’t recommend going for a swim with it, it will keep your phone protected against the worst of the British weather.
2 minute installation
The bike mount takes two minutes to install on your bike using an Allen key which is supplied with the mount. You can also quickly remove it if you want to place it on a second or a third bike. We do also sell additional mounting brackets.
Safe for mountain biking, potholes and even on motorbikes
The bike mount is designed with the bumpiest rides in mind:
- Place your iPhone snuggly inside the mount
- Clip the two arms to securely hold it in place
- Slide it on to the mount on your handlebars until you hear it click
- Tighten the screw at the back
Your iPhone isn’t going anywhere!
Recharge your iPhone on the move
You can unclip the two openings at the bottom to allow you to plugin your iPhone headphones or your charger. This will allow you to charge your iPhone from a portable battery pack.
Use the kick stand
Using the kick stand attached to the iPhone 5/5s bike mount, you can position your iPhone at a good viewing angle. This makes this iPhone bike mount useful, even when you are off the bike.
Continue to use your iPhone 5/5s and from your handlebars
The touch screen remains operable even when the iPhone is inside the bike mount. Therefore, when you stop at the traffic light you can check your Strava stats or plot a new route. You can also still access the home button and wake button even while your iPhone is inside the case.
Can fit nearly all handlebars
The mounting bracket can fit bars/stems of 20-45mm diameter. This should fit 99% of bikes.
Quick release for when you reach your destination
The quick release mechanism, means that you can unclip the bike mount when you reach your destination.
Listen to turn by turn directions
If you are using an app such as BikeHub (free), you can still hear directions coming from the speakers despite the unit being water tight. This is thanks to a sound boost technology, that diverts speaker sound to the front.
Use it even if you’ve got a slimline case
Even if you are using a slimline case for your iPhone to keep it safe on a day to day basis, you can still place it inside the mount without the hassle of removing the case. If you don’t have a case for daily use, a stylish easy-grip polycarbonate case is included (use is optional).
Use it as a safety camera
You can still record using the iPhone camera, while it is inside the mount.
Included in the package
- Cradle with form-fitting silicone lining
- Easy grip polycarbonate case for daily use
- New universal mounting bracket
- Allen key for fixing bracket on bar
- Additional rubber pad for increasing bracket grip
