PETALUMA, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- JOBY creates a versatile and durable solution for mounting any smartphone plus additional devices to bicycle handlebars, based on its best-selling and award-winning GripTight design. The GripTight Bike Mount PRO and GripTight Bike Mount PRO & Light Pack provide bike commuters, mountain bikers, road cyclists and weekend enthusiasts with a sturdy, non-obstructive and flexible mounting platform.
"We have grown accustomed to bringing connected devices with us everywhere we go, from work to remote mountain locations," said Tim Grimmer, Vice President of Brand and Product for JOBY. "The JOBY GripTight Mount for Bikes now enables riders to take their smartphone with them wherever they go. Riders can stay connected by securely mounting their smartphone, GPS and lights to their handlebars providing a reliable, durable hold without cluttering their handlebars or obstructing their view."
The GripTight Bike Mount PRO (US MSRP $59.95) is a compact mounting solution that fits any smartphone and attaches to any handlebars (via included inserts) that measure 22.2mm to 35mm. Constructed of durable ABS plastic, Polyarylamide thermoplastic and TPE grip pads, this super-stable design includes over-molded stainless steel plates that slide and lock to securely hold a smartphone in place – with or without its case – and create an extra-stable attachment with the addition of lights, a GPS device, Garmin®, Strava® or other device with a ¼"-20 mount. The GripTight Bike allows users to position their devices in portrait or landscape mode, and even adjust the tilt angle to avoid glare and capture the perfect imagery or view in ideal light.
The GripTight Bike Mount PRO & Light Pack (US MSRP $99.95) pairs the newly designed and robust mount with front white and rear red visibility lights – each with a built-in ¼"-20 attachment point. Designed for true flexibility, the lights can be secured on the mount or attached separately to a bike with the included, stretchable bands. Light operation is simple – even with gloved hands – a push of a button activates a single light or flashing mode. Cell batteries are included in the GripTight Bike Mount Pro & Light Pack and last up to eight hours..
