Smartphone Cases and Mounts That Are Most Useful in Cycling

Jun 15th 2015 at 12:04 AM


If you love to bike and uses your cellphone for navigating, then a smart cycling phone case or mount would be very useful.

But you need to understand that some smartphone cases are only good for bike riding, while others are designed to stay permanently onto the mobile phone such as a fitness iPhone case. Cellphone mounts are also designed in different ways.

Some are mounted on the handlebars, some are mounted on the stem, and others are mounted in front of the stem, while others are clipped on the top caps of headsets. Some of these cases are also 100% waterproof so you don’t need to take off your cellphone from its case when it rains.

Here then are some of the mobile phone cases and mounts that you can use when going for a bike run.

A. For iPhone 6/6 Plus

  • Biologic Weathercase – this case zips your phone into it, and keeps it dry. However, its design reduces the phone’s functionality.

  • Rokform Protective Case – a decent smartphone case with a nice top cap mounting system.

  • Biologic Bike Mount Plus – a heavy duty weatherproof case that mounts to the stem.

  • Quadlock Bike Kit – you can use this as your iPhone clip. It has a slim design, is lightweight, and comes with waterproof ‘poncho’.

  • Topeak Weatherproof RideCase – this case provides protection against water and dirt.

  • SlimClip Case – this case is a super thin clip case that stays on the phone but has an integrated clip that you can use to clip the phone to your waist when you cycle. It works best when clipped to your back when cycling hard especially for great distances.

B. For 4/4S

  • Quadlock Bike Kit – this case has the slimmest design, truly lightweight, and comes with waterproof ‘poncho’.

  • Ibera Waterproof Case – this is a waterproof dry bag case, but also reduces the phone’s functionality.

  • Biologic Bike Mount – a heavy duty weatherproof case that mounts to the handlebar.

  • Rokform Protective Case – also a decent smartphone case that comes with a nice top cap mounting system.

  • Topeak Smartphone Drybag – 3-4″, 4-5″ and 5-6″ sizes – another waterproof dry bag case, which also reduces the phone’s functionality

  • Optrix XD4 – a super heavy duty case which transforms your smartphone into an action camera. The unit comes with a wide angle lens and a BarFly mount.

  • Topeak Smartphone Dry bag – a waterproof drybag case, but reduces your phone’s functionality

  • iCarry Bike S – another heavy duty case with a clunky looking mount. It comes with a speaker amplifier, which is neat.

  • Quadlock Universal Bike Kit – this adhesive mount can be attached to any smartphone case, enabling you to take advantage of its Quadlock system.

C. Other Smartphone Brands

  • Topeak RideCase – Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, HTC One M7 – one of the slimmest cases that Topeak sells.

  • Quadlock – Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 – this case also has a very slim design, is lightweight, and comes with a waterproof ‘poncho’.

  • Rokform Protective Case – Galaxy S3, S4, S5 – a decent smartphone case that comes with a nice top cap mounting system.
