Are you keeping your phone or other e-device in your pocket where it can fall out or cause you to struggle to retrieve it? Choose the right mounting option to keep it right in front of you.

If you use your phone as a GPS device or cycle through it to deliver tunes, you’ll obviously want to keep it close to eye level, so a proper mounting solution is in order. No, duct tape doesn’t count as a “proper” method. With so many quality mounting systems available, you’ll be able to attach your phone to your handlebars at your preferred angle every time you ride. Not all mounts are made the same, however, so we have put together a list of five units that deliver the same basic functions but with unique features that might better appeal to your specific wants and needs.

Tackform Enduro Series Motorcycle Phone Mount

Lower-end mounts are made of cheap plastic, which we shy away from. Units like the Tacform Enduro series utilize machined aluminum and industrial springs to better safeguard your spendy device.Amazon

There is no plastic used on the Tackform Enduro Series cellphone mount—this quality product is constructed of 6061 machined aluminum that features a high-strength industrial spring system to better grip your device. The Tackform Enduro mount is also compatible with nearly all regular-sized devices as well as the plus-sized iPhone models and other larger Galaxy devices. One-hand operation makes docking and removal of your device easy so there’s no annoying fumbling around. Change from landscape to portrait viewing quickly thanks to the aluminum ball-and-socket joint. Mount to just about any type of 1.25-inch bars without having to use the included bushing options.

It’s a phone mount. It’s a phone charger. It’s waterproof. This universal cellphone mount securely fits most current popular cellular devices, and is compatible with handlebar diameters ranging from 7/8 inch, 1 inch, and 1-1/4 inches. The waterproof USB charging port and IP 66 cover keeps your mobile phone or GPS unit fully charged while on the road. Never again will you have to worry about running out of juice when it comes time to make the right turn or answer that ever-so-important phone call or text. With premium auto-grade ABS construction, there’s never a need to worry about rust or corrosion. To maintain an ideal angle for screen readability, a 360-degree rotating system allows for simple adjusting and locking with a special rubberized ball and bracket design.

Budgets concerns happen with every project, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice quality. The Diamond Plate mount is a good example of solid construction and convenient design at a not-unreasonable price.Amazon

For less than 10 bucks, you can grab this Diamond Plate cellphone/PDA/GPS mount that is fully adjustable and features a 360-degree swivel lockable joint to get that perfect viewing angle. Maybe you would like to have one of these types of mounts stashed away just in case you need it or don’t feel like spending more than $10 for one. Either way, there’s no losing out with this mount. Foam-padded ratcheting clamps and a secure mounting clamp ensure that no unnecessary scratching or marring to your handlebars or device will take place during proper use. Solid ABS construction promotes long life of the mount just in case you plan on using it on the daily.

Yoke 50 Motorcycle Yoke Nut Cap Mount

Handlebars don’t have to serve as your only mounting point, and unique designs like the Yoke 50 positions your device front and center which may be the best choice for your application.Amazon

Available for a wide range of motorcycle fitments and phones, this device-specific mount utilizes a very unique mounting position, unlike the handlebar norm. This yoke nut cap mount base replaces the yoke cap or nut, which positions your phone centrally—not off to either side of your bike’s bars. To further tout this mount’s selling points, it’s constructed from high-tensile anodized solid billet aluminum, so it’s lightweight and nearly bulletproof. A full 360 degrees of tilt and swivel adjustment is also a highlight of the mount that will help keep your eyes aimed front and center.

Aside from boasting a firm grip on your cellphone or GPS device, the iOttie handlebar mounting system features an easy one-touch lock and release feature that locks and unlocks its hold on your phone with just a push of a finger. A flexible safety strap secures your cellphone or other device tightly, so not even the shakiest of roads will knock it loose.

In the box, you’ll get the Easy One Touch 4 mount, Allen wrench, safety strap, rubber strips, and instruction manual to get you rolling in no time.
