Mounting a phone on a motorcycle doesn't have to be complicated. (In fact, it's less complicated than learning how to USE some of these phones!) But it's a good idea to decide what functions of the phone you are most likely to use when riding. This can help you narrow down your mounting preferences.
This list gives you eight things to think about when considering a motorcycle phone mount.
Pick your Phone "Gripper"!
Just like you may use a holster or case to carry your phone on your body, you need something that "holds" (or "grips") the phone, which can be attached to the motorcycle.
This is important, since it can be a weak point and cause your phone to fall from your bike. (We've road tested many a product, and most are not made with motorcycle vibration and the condition of today's road surfaces in mind.)
The sheer volume of phone shapes/sizes (not to mention cases and covers for them) means that what works for one will not necessarily work for another.
That's why the Leader Phone Mount line features different "grippers," each of which excels at different things. To help you quickly decide what's best for you, check out the video (right) and Style Guide (below)!
