What you should pay attention to when buying bicycle cell phone holders
The best cell phone holder for your bike does not have to be the most expensive model. It really depends on your needs and your smartphone. Some tips for making the right purchase decision:
- Assembly: Most mobile phone holders can be attached in a very short time without additional tools. This is practical if you also want to use the mount for rental bikes, scooters or an e-bike. If it is only to be used on a bicycle, this aspect is not so important.
- Smartphone protection: If you’re going to be action-packed and love touring with your gravel bike, then give your smartphone additional protection. Some mobile phone holders come with special protective covers that also cushion falls. These are so-called case mounts. Alternatively, regular clamping brackets are suitable, with which you can stow your smartphone with its own case.
- Size of the phone: When buying, make sure that your smartphone fits in the holder and that the buttons and the USB/Lightning port remain free. This gives you the option of connecting a mini power bank if required. Make the effort to measure your phone. Tablets with a display size significantly larger than 8 inches should not be attached to the bike. They are too big and too heavy.
- Equipment: Swivel arm, hands-free system, an associated app and other functions are not absolutely necessary, but increase comfort when driving. More importantly, the mount is tight on the handlebars, sturdy, protects the phone, and easy to attach.
