Have Duct Tape Ready
January 25, 2010(Olympia, WA)
Even when strapped down as tight as possible to the helmet, it experienced a lot of forward and backward movement during a mountain bike ride (the video footage was unusable). We added duct tape between the mount and the helmet to stop this movement, and now it works just fine. Also, the metal pin that provides rotation comes loose on one side from time to time. Can be fixed by pressing it back into place with a butter knife.
Surprisingly stable platform

I bought this to mount a countourHD 1080p on my Giro Xen helmet. I was worried that there would be a lot of image shake because the mount was only strapped on as opposed to velcro'd or glued, but fortunately that's not the case! Before each ride I check the straps to make sure they are tight and snug around the vents of the helmet, and then lock the cam into place. The resulting video is surprisingly stable. I still get some image shake from the bike bouncing over rocks/roots/small animals, but running it through an image stabilization program smoothes it out perfectly. I would definitely by another and suggest it to anyone who owns a vholdr helmet cam.
