This Universal Mount Will Let You Use Any Phone on Your Handlebars

Illustration for article titled This Universal Mount Will Let You Use Any Phone on Your Handlebars

Mounting your phone on your handlebars isn't a new idea, but this little piece of silicon, known as Finn, is the neatest solution we've seen: it simply stretches over your bars and will hold a phone of pretty much any size.


Made in Austria from what's claimed to be 'high-grade silicon', the strip loops over your bars, through itself, and then stretches to accommodate whatever smartphone you throw its way. Maybe even that monstrous iPhone 6 Plus. (Watch the video below to see how it works.) It's a neat solution: lightweight, quick to fit and small enough to slip into a pocket when you jump off your bicycle. Perhaps even better, it only costs $15.

The obvious concern here is stability: can a simple silicon band hold a phone firmly enough for the rough and tumble of fast city biking? Well, it's claimed the thing can hold up to downhill mountain biking; if that's true, it should cope with any kerb or pothole you throw at it. Guess there's only one way to find out.

You mean "silicone". Silicon is a mineral (sand). Silicone is a synthetic rubber. If the manufacturer calls is "silicon", they have it wrong too, but then, the Europeans pronounce both words identically. Silicone, man.
