The allure of a POV camera is hard to deny, especially when there is twisting singletrack or fast descents to be tamed and simultaneously shown to the world. The K-Edge Pro Handlebar Mount for your GoPro Hero camera satiates multiple narcissistic cravings at once while providing a reliable and visually satisfying perch befitting the simplicity of the GoPro itself.
With their basic packages, GoPro offers a commendable array of mounts for just about every mounting application imaginable, but what they offer in selection, they more than lack in durability. Rough trails and gravel roads wreak havoc on the brittle plastic joints of the handlebar mounts, leading to failure. So just as they created solutions for chain-dropping during Paris-Roubaix, Idaho-based K-Edge has just introduced the Go-Big Pro Handlebar Mount — an elegant and bomb-proof new solution for mounting your GoPro camera on your handlebars. These are the same mounts used by pro teams like Garmin-Barracuda, the BMC Pro Racing Team, and our very own Competitive Cyclist Pro Team. In fact, watch our boy Chad Beyer take a GoPro for a hot lap around the Redlands Classic Criterium course.
The Go-Big Pro Handlebar Mount differs slightly from its little brother, the standard Handlebar Mount, only in that your angle options are expanded thanks to the elongated 'boom' style mount on the Pro. You can lower the camera to watch your front wheel as it gobbles up the tarmac, extend it out past your shifter cables for a crystal clear view of the trail ahead, or you can angle it towards the sky to capture your best suffer face. Both mounts otherwise provide excellent camera stability and bomb-proof mounting to your bars for perfectly capturing dodgy singletrack or your fastest Strava descents.
Like their excellent chain-catchers, the K-Edge Go-Big Pro Handlebar Mount is made in Boise, Idaho from CNC machined 6061 T6 aluminum. It fits all 31.8mm bars, and includes all of the mounting hardware — you'll only need an allen key to get it dialed in. All told, the mount only adds 46 grams to your rig, and should you manage to somehow break it, K-Edge backs all their mounts with a lifetime warranty. Choose between Black, Gunmetal, or Anodized Red.
