GPS cycling computers are getting more aero, so why not smartphone mounts, too? If you prefer your iPhone or any of the Android-based phones to a Garmin, Wahoo, etc., you now have a premium alloy out-front mount. The new Quad Lock Out Front Mount PRO is a sleek, alloy mount that’s a major upgrade from the original and uses their proven retention system to secure any smartphone (or anything, really) to your handlebars.
If you’re rocking one of the more popular Android phones or any of the iPhone models, Quad Lock has a case for you that both protects it from drops and dings and integrates the female end of their twist-to-lock mount. Or, opt for their stick-on universal mount and you can literally stick just about anything with a flat surface on the back to their mounts (photos at bottom show options).
The new PRO mount brings the phone lower and further out, perfect for today’s ever larger screens. The design upgrades to an CNC’d 6061 aluminum body with a lower profile, and positions the phone in a more viewable spot, too.
The PRO mount keeps the original’s dual locking system. Twist it into place and the tabs hold it securely while the blue tab springs up to lock it into place. To release, just push down on the blue tab and twist. It’s shipping now for $59.95, cases sold separately (~$29.95). They also have cases for the new iPhone XS/XS Max phones available, too, and a GoPro/Light mount ($14.95) add-on that can be bolted to the bottom of either Out Front mount.
