Bracketron (http://www.bracketron.com) has launched the US$39.95 All-Weather Soft Case Bike Mount, a mobile device mount for recreational and competitive cyclists. It’s compatible with the iPhone, iPod and other mobile devices.
The All-Weather Soft Case Bike Mount positions your mobile device on your bicycle handlebars so you can monitor your speed and trip data with your device’s GPS or other cycling apps. The detachable weather-resistant case offers protection and has a clear screen that allows you to use your device’s touchscreen functions while in the case.
The mount doesn’t require tools and sets up in just seconds, according to Mark Mandel, executive vice president of Bracketron. It features an adjustable C-clamp with three latch levels that ensure the mount’s tight grip to the bike handlebars. The mount is height adjustable and includes a ball swivel adjustment feature that lets you position your device for optimal viewing.
A weather-resistant case snaps onto the mount with a safety lock and can be detached for security purposes when not in use. In addition, water resistant zippers form a seal to protect your gadget from the elements. The case includes four protective foam inserts that provide a snug fit for your mobile device when inside. A clear screen allows you to use your device’s touchscreen while it’s in the case.
