Gadget geeks rejoice
Cycliq have launcehd a Kickstarter campaign for a nifty bar-mount for running two devices – a GoPro and a Garmin for example – at the same time.
The Duo Mount is made from 7075 aluminium and claims to be lightweight (claimed 50g), “super strong” and “beautifully designed”. It does look like a neat solution for those who need such a thing.
Duo Mount has a funding target of AUD20,000. Cycliq have history of using Kickstarter to launch/fund their products. Their Fly 6 and Fly12 action cameras-with-lights were done via Kickstarter.
Cycliq CEO Andrew Hagen: “In the early days, a great many people shared our vision for Fly6 and Fly12 … By launching the Duo Mount through Kickstarter, we’re giving the crowdfunding community first opportunity to purchase the mount and will do so at a significant discount. It’s a way of saying thank you for helping us to grow a successful business.”
Cycliq’s patent pending design has a scalloped base to fit devices’ mounting fins, making camera or lighting devices sit closer together with the head unit.
Supported bike computer brands include; Garmin, Wahoo, Polar, Cateye, Mio/Magellan. You can also connect any action camera or other devices (i.e. bike lights) that use the universal mounting system with the typical three fins made ubiquitous by GoPro.
The Kickstarter campaign will run until 1st December 2016. Mounts for the first 400 early backers are projected to begin shipping before Christmas.
