GoPro Mounted to Chest Protector

Recommended Posts

Let me know what you think about this angle. Put one of the GoPro mounts on the front of my chest protector. This was my first attempt with this mount location. I think it turned out pretty cool.

The track is Bremen Motocross in Bremen, GA.

Nice, can you post a picture of the mount setup. Thanks.

That's pretty cool. Personally I like the side of the helmet at the level of the riders eyes....that way the video is shot from the same perspective as if you were riding the bike when you watch it. A little to the side, but the same height anyway.

I like the setup. My cam is supposed to be in tuesday and I'm planning on hitting Millcreek thursday night so I may try it myself.

I used one of the curved helmet mounts. It fit perfect on my 661 chest protector.

My kit came with a quick connect mount that works on a vertical mount.

Then just clipped it on, put on the chest protector and adjusted it where it was pointing slightly up from level. (This picture doesn't actually show the angle used. (Sorry)

I like that angle but every time i've seen it in a race or buys track day roost covers up the lens. I still love the side of helmet look

I've gotta agree with a lot of the other guys...in my opinion, the view from the chest protector is much better than when mounted on the helmet! It made me feel like I was riding the bike...rather than just watching the video. The helmet mounted cameras give off the perception that your looking straight down all the time...I HATE that, but I think that this angle works out much better!

that's way better then a helmet setup look's like your riding the bike not just looking down I wounder what a front numberplate mounted go pro would look like?

Put your sound setting on low to cut down on the wind noise.

I like seeing the bars it makes a big difference in feeling the presence of the bike. Helmet cam even the goggle one to the side always feels a bit floaty/flying to me
