Tackform Solutions 4333026683

Universal Mount for Phone

We’d like to introduce the Tackform Enduro phone holder, the product which can easily become rock-solid support for your smartphone while you are at the wheel. It has survived the roughest crush tests, so you can be sure it won’t let you down. The Enduro mount is made from high strength steel that means you’ve got the lifetime warranty for this product. As you see, this model is really made to last.

This phone cradle is spring loaded, which implies two things. For one, it can provide a strong grip for smartphones of different sizes, including (but not limited to) standard and plus-sized iPhones, LGs, Samsung Galaxy, and more. For two, it is very easy to place and remove a phone from the mount with a single hand. You may think such an “ease of use” makes the spring looser, but it’s not the case. Understanding that users might want to hedge their bets, the manufacturer has put a rubber tether in the box. By the way, the construction of the holder allows you to install your phone either in portrait or landscape modes. Handy, right?

As for the clamp, this model fits any handlebar from an oversized road bike to a mountain bike perfectly. Plus, the Tackform Enduro comes equipped with three custom fittings for 7/8”, 1”, and 1-1/4” to provide you with more mounting options.

Overall, this is one of the best motorcycle cellphone mounts on the market because it has exactly what people expect from high-quality holders. It is durable, holds a phone tightly, and looks awesome, whether you attach it on a Halley-Davidson or YAMAHA motorcycle.

RAM RAM-B-149Z-UN7U

4 Points of Fixation

The RAM X-Grip phone mount is a well-made model from one of the leading companies producing high-grade mounting equipment. This product is not an exception. It is easy to install and it perfectly fits any gadget that is no wider than 3.25”. But in case you need it wider, you can opt for a larger mount that can hold devices up to 5.5” wide.

The tight fit of the RAM X-Grip is provided by a 4-leg stainless steel cradle. It is spring loaded and has rubber pads on each leg that hold a phone very snugly and do not obscure the screen. On the contrary, thanks to the patented socket system and the rubber ball that allows for 360° rotation, the RAM B-149Z-UN7U lets you pivot your phone in any direction so that you can find the perfect viewing angle and see every pixel clearly whatever the weather.

As for the type of a rail you can attach this mount to, the RAM holder fits any bar from 0.50” to 1.25” in diameter. Thanks to the U-bolt design, it is simple to install. The zinc coating of the bolt guarantees its long service, while the rubber covering won’t let it scratch the bar. By the way, the manufacturer produces several types of clamps that you can buy additionally to mount your cell phone in your car as well. Without a doubt, this mount is a good choice for users who like versatility and fast rides!

CAW.CAR Accessories Crow Foot

The Iron Grip

The CAW.CAR Accessories motorcycle cell phone mount is praised for its sturdy and universal design that enables you to install it almost on any motorbike, bicycle, or car. That is to say, its CrowFoot clamp fits any handlebar that is 0.2” - 1.9” in diameter, which makes it ideal both for a chopper or a cruiser bike alike. And in case you need to entertain your kids during a road trip, you can attach the mount to the tube of the head support in your car so that they can watch a movie. The best part is that you don’t even need a screwdriver to attach the mount. The process is so simple that you can adjust the clamp for the size of a tube and fix it with your eyes closed.

Talking about design, this model is made strong. All the parts are produced from heavy-duty metal, thus ensuring a lifetime service. At the same time, the fastening elements (clamp and cradle) have rubber coating for a tighter grip. So whatever the speed you are riding, your phone is always safe. Plus, neither your smartphone nor handlebar of your bike won’t get a scratch.

Another thing that we like so much about this product is the excellent phone compatibility. Although most mounts can carry quite a wide variety of gadgets, this model can suit larger devices up to 3.7” in width. It also has built-in silicone belts to grip a phone tighter and more securely. These belts keep a device steady even during the most extreme rides.

Well, the CAW.CAR Accessories motorcycle cell phone mount is one of those phone holders that can meet the expectations of any user who rides fast and needs something extra reliable.

ILM 4333305286

A Protective Glove for a Cell Phone

The ILM motorcycle phone mount is a very nice phone stand for those bikers who wish to get a solid product without breaking the bank. Being made of high-grade aluminum, this holder won’t fall apart after a few uses as it may happen with other cheap models. This adjustable phone bracket can hold the iPhone 6s Plus and higher as well as the Galaxy S7. In other words, if your smartphone or phablet is not wider than 3.7”, it will be safe with the ILM mount.

The design of the cradle might seem odd at first glance because it has a screw mechanism instead of the spring system and two walls on both sides to hold a phone. However, in practice it's rather convenient. In order to secure your gadget, you need to loosen these screws, then widen the walls, place your phone between them and, in the end, tighten down the screws. This ensures a tight grip, even tighter than that of spring-loaded cradles. It is also convenient to use. The mount supports 360° rotation and multi-adjustable viewing angles for better visibility while driving.

What we also like about this phone stand is that it goes well with any bike. For one, it's available in silver and black color options so you can choose one that suits your bike better. And for two, it's adjustable in width so it can fit a handlebar that is 3/4” - 1-3/8” in diameter. If it had a rubber tether, which it doesn't, unfortunately, it'd really have no flaws at all. However, even as is, it's certainly not a bad deal, especially for a mount that costs less $20.
