How to attach a helmet cam to a Giro Omen helmet...?

So me and my girl both have Giro Omens. We do have a goggle strap mount so we can resort to that, but I would much rather a more stable/interchangeable mount for the cam on each helmet.

So I'm curious if anyone has attached a helmet cam to this helmet. It's a 2010 regular Tachyon XC camera to be specific.

The issue is mostly the way the venting system works on the helmet... It restricts any sort of mounting on the top of the helmet.

I will figure something out, but to hear from someone who may have already tackled it would be nice.

May have just answered my own question.... I got to looking and putting zip ties thru the vents and around the base of the camera may just work.

Totally different helmet but similar way to how I'm gonna attach mine.

I still havn't gotten to the point where I wear my helmet as the last time I tried to ride with it I felt like I was being strangled

Ah looking at your other posts, you're just trying to sell your cameras.

No wonder you seemed like a complete idiot by posting a completely different helmet and completely different camera then the ones I was questioning about.

I do sell cameras but I was honestly trying to help solve your mounting question.

fuck off spamfucker



Milo303, get some 3M dual-lock low-profile (velcro industrial sucks ass), and some regular velcro backing

put the dual-lock on the goggle/helmet mount, put the velcro backing on the helmet

dual-lock is incredibly strong, but is a major major major pain in the ass to remove from the backing (i could show you the massacred strips to prove it)

low-profile dual-lock is strong enough but much easier to remove from the backing

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

and don't put the dual-lock on the helmet unless you like pulling strings out of your goggle straps

and amazon is basically the best place to get the low-pro dual-lock - $17 shipped for a 10ft roll

fuzzy stuff can be bought anywhere
