Getting used to wearing a GoPro

Anyone out there find the slight weight of the GoPro on your helmet a bit awkward? I've only worn it once, and I know it's light, but it felt like trying to balance a brick on my head.

Did it take long to get used to it?

It's not too bad getting used to it. Just keep doing turns and you'll forget you even have it after a while.

Where are you putting it though? Put it on the front rather than the top of the helmet (I lost mine twice when I was going through the trees like an idiot, haha).

I have the mount on the top of the helmet. I was thinking it could be a problem if I caught it on a tree, so your experience confirms it. Hopefully you found yours....

I'm wondering if I can figure a way to tether it to my helmet, just in case. I'm bringing the strap mount as well. saw someone at a local hill wearing that over his helmet.

I have a second helmet as well, so I might put the other adhesive mount on the front of that one.

It doesnt bother me at all... although I do have to tighten the chin strap on my helmet a tad bit extra.

If you think you're going to do tree runs, use the other helmet with the go pro mounted in the front. You shouldn't lose it in the trees (if you do hit a tree in that spot, you have bigger problems than a gopro).

Otherwise, the top mount works fine. It just won't hold up to getting slammed by a thick tree branch.

If I had a GoPro, I'd mount it on the front of the helmet. It looks ridiculous on top, like a periscope. Plus it gets whacked on everything like tree branches, lifts, etc...
