Mounting your phone on your handlebars isn’t a new idea, but this little piece of silicon, known as Finn, is the neatest solution we’ve seen: it simply stretches over your bars and will hold a phone of pretty much any size.
Made in Austria from what’s claimed to be ‘high-grade silicon’, the strip loops over your bars, through itself, and then stretches to accommodate whatever smartphone you throw its way. Maybe even that monstrous iPhone 6 Plus. (Watch the video below to see how it works.) It’s a neat solution: lightweight, quick to fit and small enough to slip into a pocket when you jump off your bicycle. Perhaps even better, it only costs $US15.
The obvious concern here is stability: can a simple silicon band hold a phone firmly enough for the rough and tumble of fast city biking? Well, it’s claimed the thing can hold up to downhill mountain biking; if that’s true, it should cope with any kerb or pothole you throw at it. Guess there’s only one way to find out.
