We really like to use this mount as our main view because it’s very dynamic and it’s also very easy to record on the fly. You need some sort of gimbal, some GoPro parts and the chest harness. As gimbal we use the FeiyuTech one axis gimbal. The view looks a bit shaky sometimes that’s why we mainly use it on smooth roads. Also the GoPro isn’t easy to center. This is also a great mount with curvy mountain roads or even on the racetrack. It looks very smooth and stable great for fast riding. You can really display your lean angle with it.
For the mount you need the gimbal and a few GoPro parts to mount it on your bike. In general: As less GoPro parts you take, as more stable is getting your final shot. Again we use the GoPro 4 with a ND filter. If you can, try to place the GoPro sticker on the highest point of your fuel tank. It’s great in turns but not that great in straights, as you don’t really see much of the road. It’s also a bit annoying sometimes, but that depends to your bike A really good mount in chasing situations or while riding in groups. It’s our main mount for action shots. We use the roll bar mount from GoPro to attach it on the passenger foot pegs, just near to the wheel. We prefer the GoPro session because the smallest one of all. For sure it works with any other type of GoPro.
But the mount can be a bit annoying sometimes because you touch it while riding with your leg if you lean into a corner and need to move your food from the footpegs and the rider behind you need to get really close for good action shots. This view is really cool for wheelies and knee down. You really feel the action, right in the moment. We place the GoPro on the rear part of the swing arm with a normal GoPro sticker. Then we use some GoPro parts to create a right angle. We use our oldest GoPro Hero for this view, since the GoPro gets hit by dirt, gravel and chain lube a lot and you really don’t want to mess up your newest GoPro on that one.
We think all of you should already know this popular mount. It looks very dynamic, even in the slower parts and it’s great to exactly see what that rider is seeing. The setup really depends on your helmet. As said, the rule is to use as less GoPro parts as possible for better video footage and more stability. We think the mount looks the best when the GoPro is mounted on your chin. We use the GoPro 4 with ND filter on it. Since the ND filter can only be used without the waterproof housing we also go to the frame for mounting It’s a really good view but it tends to make the helmet a little front-heavy Some tips: If you ever experience that the sticker and mounting buckle and to shake a bit just place some tape over the sticker.
