Best Motorcycle Phone Mounts

by | Jul 27, 2020 | motoGP News

Smartphones have integrated themselves into almost every aspect of modern life. So, it should come as no surprise that people want to make them more accessible while riding their motorcycles. A well-placed phone can make it easier to follow GPS directions or check to see who the incoming call is from to determine if you should answer on your Bluetooth communicator. This has lead to a burgeoning selection of phone mounts for securely placing your smartphone on your bike where it can be easily glanced at. Here, we’ve gathered a listing of what we think are a few of the best motorcycle phone mounts that we know of. If we’ve skipped your favorite, let us know in the comments.

RAM X-Grip Large Phone Mount with Handlebar U-Bolt Base

An early player on the motorcycle phone mount scene, Ram Mounts has a deep well of accessories to draw from to make your phone stay on your motorcycle. Shown here is perhaps the company’s most universal mounts. The X-Grip cradle grips your phone tightly. The spring-loaded X-Grip cradle expands and contracts, allowing for a custom fit of your cell phone without obscuring your phone or requiring a bespoke phone case. Those who want a more secure fit can use the included rubber web that wraps around the four corners of the phone. While the X-Grip is cool, the real advantage of Ram Mounts comes from the wide variety of mounts for the X-Grip. Although the U-bolt here will accommodate rails from 0.50″ to 1.25″ in diameter, options for the steering stem and other locations are available.

Pricing starts at $60.

Bottom Line/Multiple mounting options are available from Ram Mounts

Riders on a budget will appreciate the list of features on this inexpensive mount.

If your phone can fit within the 3.5-inch grip, you and your smartphone are good to go. The list of phones includes: iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone 8 | 8Plus, iPhone 7 | 7 Plus, iPhone 6 | 6s | 6 Plus.

While the company has other mounting methods, Rokform’s Billet Aluminum Motorcycle Perch Mount is specifically designed for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. However, it will also fit metric cruisers and Indian motorcycles with 25mm – 50mm bolt spacing. Constructed of CNC Machined Aircraft Grade Aluminum, the Rokform mount secures your smartphone via a twist-locking system. Naturally, this requires a Rokform case, but the company stresses that this makes your phone part of a wide-ranging phone support ecosystem – not just a motorcycle mount.

The Rokform Motorcycle Cell Phone Perch Mount retails for $100.

Cases start at $40.

Bottom Line/Part of an ecosystem of phone protection and mounting products

There is even a Universal Adapter that allows phones without a Quad Lock case to be used with the system. The company claims that the patented dual-stage lock holds your smartphone secure over the roughest terrain. To remove the phone from the mount the blue lever must be depressed, and the phone must be twisted 90°. While the handlebar mount is shown here, a variety of mounts are available, from mirror mounts to steering stem to 1-inch ball mounts.

The Quad Lock Motorcycle Handlebar Mount retails for $50.
