Where to mount my gopro

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. So I just bought my troy lee designs se3 helmet and I'm having trouble finding a spot to mount it. The air vent on top is kind of the center point of the helmet and I can't mount it there. And I really don't want to do a side mount I hate that angle. Anyone who has this helmet let me know!! ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1398363465.666030.jpg

I ride with the chesty in the woods and tight trails, because my head is always swiveling around really fast and the videos will make you dizzy... but in the open I just slapped a sticky mount on top, and used the "swoop up" bracket. I'm sure you could mount it back a ways and just get the tall swoop up bracket and tilt the camera level... or maybe loosen the nuts and lower your visor a bit? maybe find room up foward

Mount it under your visor hanging upside down. Best footage ever and the camera never gets snagged.

Hmm... would work great, but that's where I keep my tool kit!

Uploaded these from my phone. Just took them twenty seconds ago. If they aren't perfect my bad. I mounted my GoPro like this. I had it on the top of my helmet for the longest time. Then decided to make a custom mount and this is what I got. It wouldn't go on the visor due to the visor having ridges on it. This view is almost like the chest mount but less movement and better picture I think. I won't be changing it anytime soon. Took about an hour to make.

 

 

Here is a video of the said mount in action. Don't judge the riding haha. Just messing around with Pops. :ride:  I really like this angle compared to the top mount. It doesn't get stuck on branches, risk of it breaking in a fall are minimum, and no visor or half of your helmet in the way.  :thumbsup:

I watch a guy on YouTube that uses this mount location! Best footage imo

Yea I ended up just mounting it right in front of the air vent. I'm going riding next weekend so I'll see. ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1398639365.233890.jpg
