Biking or cycling is one of the most enjoyable recreations that can be done by kids and adults alike. You can do it in your spare time with your friends or family.
With the latest technology being incorporated from time to time, smartphone has become an accessory for biking as a GPS device or a device for accessing Google maps. You just need to mount the phone in front of your bicycle and choose the best phone holder for bike designed especially for this recreation.
Biking requires more durable and more secure fit phone holder for bike than the phone mount being used in cars. It is usually accompanied by shocks and impacts which bikes are designed for.

Material : Premium hard plastic

Roam Co-pilot universal bike phone mount is made specifically for bicycle and motorcycle. It fits to almost handle bars ranging from 7/8” to 1 ¼ “ in diameter. Its material is made up of premium hard plastic that securely holds your phone on the handle bars with its 6-point grip.
The package comes with 3 pieces silicone nets with different sizes and the phone holder set. The smaller silicone net is for smaller phones and the larger ones are for bigger size phones.
One of the great features of this Roam Co-pilot is its versatility. Its larger clamp allows you to either mount it on a bicycle or on a motorcycle with wider handle bars compatibility, except for sports motorcycle which usually have larger handles.
This is made possible by the 3 steps of the clamp where you can set which diameter will fit your handle bar. Aside from that, you can adjust the arms up to 3.5 inches wide that will fit almost all phone’s width. This is compatible with small and big cell phones alike.
This phone mount offers 6-point grip to hold your device securely in place even in a bumpy road, which is a normal condition when biking or motorcycling. The silicone net which can stretch up to 5 times its length provides 4-point grip basically on the 4 corners of your phone. The side arms provide the 2-point grip which allows your phone to sit securely in place.
Unlike rubber, the silicone net is durable even in extreme weather conditions which does not break or crack during long time use. In addition, the clamp is made from premium hard plastic which is resistant to breaking unlike normal plastic. Just be reminded to tighten it just enough since even metal loses their thread if tightened beyond their tightening torque.

CAW.CAR Accessories Universal CrowFoot is an all-out universal bike phone holder which can be mounted even to the smallest handlebars of 0.2 inch in diameter such as the tubular stand of car seat’s head support. Of all the aforementioned bike phone mount, this product has the biggest diameter compatibility.
The package comes with a uni-design crow-foot phone holder.
This bicycle phone holder is designed like a crow’s foot which makes it the most universal of all the top 5. With its screw-locking-releasing mechanism, you can easily snatch it to any handlebars and take it off very easily without the need of extra tools. You can imagine a real crow’s foot snatching on its prey easily.
This product’s uni-design makes it really convenient for users. All parts are already assembled into one including the rubber grips that are made built-in. You just pop it out from the box and you are ready to go. Goodbye to Allen wrenches and assembly of multiple components.
Similar with the previously mentioned bicycle phone holders, CAW.CAR Crow-Foot also offers 6-point grip but the silicone rubber bands are already built-in which allows a more secure and firm hold of your device preventing tremble.
The ball and socket design allows a 360 degrees rotation so you can tilt your phone to any position or viewing angle and lock it with the swivel. The rubberized clip provides better grip and protection your handle bars from scratches. Click HERE to check price.

Compatibility: up to 3.7 inches phone width
Mongoora bike phone mount is designed to fit any smartphone. The arm is adjustable from 2.2 inches up to 3.7 inches wide. Similar with Roam Co-pilot, it can be attached to almost all handle bars ranging from 0.9 up to 1.3 inches in diameter. This phone holder is designed specifically for bicycles but it can be mounted to motorcycles and other similar handle bars.
The package comes with 3 pieces silicone nets with 3 different colors to suit your color preferences and the phone holder set. There are 2 knobs provided, so you can choose which one to use. Basically the smaller one is for smaller diameter and the bigger one is for bigger diameter handle bars.
Mongoora phone holder is a universal phone accessory because it can be mounted in almost any handle bar diameter. This is made possible by the provided 2 sets of knobs and the 3 steps in the clamp that allows you to set based on the handle bar diameter.
The phone width compatibility of Mongoora is wider than the Roam Co-pilot by 0.2 inches so it offers bigger compatibility even for plus size phones with thick phone case.
Another feature of this product is that the clamp surface has soft rubber strips which provide better grip especially for uneven handle bars. Six-point grip seems a standard design for these types of bike phone holders which holds your phone in place even for a rough road ride.

4. Bovon Universal Bicycle Phone Holder
Handle Bar Size Range : Fits all handle bar diameters (belt-type)
Material : Premium silicone
Compatibility: 4.5 ~ 6.0 inches screen size
When it comes to universality, Bovon bicycle phone holder does compete with TaoTronics. Instead of clamp, this product is designed to be belt-type so you can adjust to any handle bar diameter from strollers, motorbikes, bicycles, and other handle bars. The whole product structure is made up of premium silicone.
It is very obvious that the package comes with a single phone holder since the product is designed as one.
When it comes to design, I would recommend this product. It is very simple and yet it delivers the product’s purpose. Applying the wristwatch structure to this product is I think a brilliant idea. Installation is made simple and convenient without the need of any tools.
With wristwatch design, this phone holder is compatible with any handle bar diameters. On the other hand, since the structure is made to be durably elastic, the compatibility with phone sizes is limited to 4.5 to 6.0 inches screen sizes only.
Unlike with the previously mentioned bicycle phone holders that offers 6-point grip, this product is designed to hold the phone on both ends freeing the center so you have easy access to all buttons and inputs to your phones.
Although this design type does not allow you 360 degrees rotation, you can still mount it horizontally or vertically which is possible for bicycles and motorcycles.
The silicone material provides more durable product than plastic, and at silicone body offers firm grip and absorbs shocks or impact during a rough ride. Click HERE to check price.

GUB phone mount is not just for bicycles but is compatible for motorcycles as well. It is also compatible with all phones even from the smallest 1.97 inches up to the biggest 3.94 inches width including the latest iPhone 11 PRO Max or Galaxy S20 Plus. This is applicable not just for smartphones but even for other devices like GPS and other gadgets within this width range.
The best feature of GUB bike mount phone holder is that it can rotate in 360-degree angle without detaching the clamp. This allows you to change your viewing angle anytime. Another nice feature is the design which does not block the cameras of the phone which allows you to take videos during biking.
Unlike above bicycle mounts, GUB uses a single screw mechanism to hold your phone tightly in place. You do not need bands to make it steady. The combination of aluminum and the sponge does lock your device securely in place. Moreover, the metal structure makes sure that the holder lasts for a long time without worrying about weathering effect on rubbers or silicone types. Click HERE to check price.

I personally prefer bike phone holders that provide easy installation to any handle bars and can easily mount and remove your phone. I am impressed with the snap-fit, wristwatch and crow-foot designs. These holders provide a more convenient way and hassle-free biking experience. On the other hand, some users may prefer assembling multiple parts.
