A bike smartphone holder is extremely practical, especially while riding. You can place your phone in it and use it to navigate and stay connected.
There are different smartphone holders for bikes that you can choose from according to your needs.
Find the right smartphone holder
A bike smartphone holder is a popular bike accessory, whether for MTB, road bike or e-bike. You can have your phone show you the way and notice when someone is trying to reach you.
A smartphone holder for a bike is usually waterproof. The smartphone is usually stowed in a waterproof small bag. This variant is particularly recommended if you use your bike in wet and windy conditions. With a smartphone holder in the form of a pocket, you usually also have the option of storing a few small things, such as some cash or a bank card. Larger bike bags are also suitable for transporting larger objects.
Most bike phone holders are adjustable: You can adjust the angle of your smartphone yourself so that you always have an optimal view of your phone and the route you are navigating. In addition, it is usually possible to use several smartphone models in one and the same holder, since you can adjust the size or width of the smartphone holder individually to the respective smartphone.
Some smartphone holders come with a charging function, so you can easily charge your smartphone while riding. Alternatively, you can also buy a bike smartphone holder with a power bank.
Where do I attach my smartphone holder to the bike?
You have three options for attaching your bike phone holder:
- on the bike handlebars
- on the stem
- on the bike frame
The decision as to which of the options is suitable depends above all on the bike model and your personal taste: should the handlebars remain free or not? From where and how do you want to look at the display?
With an e-bike or city bike, the smartphone holder is often attached to the bike handlebars. With a racing bike or mountain bike, smartphone holders are usually found on the stem or, due to the bent seating position, also on the bike frame so that the handlebars remain free. If you also use a bottle holder at the same time, you should make sure that both holders can be attached securely.
How do I attach my smartphone holder?
You can attach your bike smartphone holder with click or Velcro fasteners. Alternatively, there are smartphone holders for bikes that can be screwed on or fastened with rubber bands and cable ties.
Especially with a smartphone holder for MTB, racing bike or e-bike, you should rely on the strongest possible attachment, as you often travel fast and/or on uneven roads with these bike models.
Which of the mounting options you choose also depends on whether you need to be able to quickly remove your smartphone holder or not. Fixed screw connections or cable ties are suitable for permanent attachment, click and Velcro fasteners or rubber bands for quick removal.
Your smartphone itself is usually fixed in the holder with magnets or special (silicone) devices. In addition, non-slip padded claws are often used on the sides of the bags to enclose the smartphone firmly. Ideally, you should use a combination of several mounting options so that your smartphone is held securely even on uneven ground.
