I have been working on this new mount for a while now, I attached my GoPro to a wing and fly it behind me while I ride. You manage to get the camera far enough away so that your whole body is in the frame which I have never been able to do before, so pretty stoked!

The mount can also be used as a pole to get the shots that we know so well or as a long boom for smooth and stable footage while you are standing still.

This was filmed on a backcountry mission in the Swiss Alps.

If you have any questions or comments, let me know. What do you think of the shots? Feedback is welcome and sharing is awesome!

The shots are awesome... The idea is different...

The limitations as i see them are simple...

Not enough will buy them to make it viable, it is a specialist market for this type of accessory, and you are limited as to what you can do while using it...

As an example, strap on, take a run at a 30-40-50 foot kicker... Great footage, but you forget you are wearing this, and do a rotation... Disaster... It is something that could cause serious injury used wrong is what i would worry about...

Saying that, i would definitely use one on a mountain POW day, and possibly out on the water on a Wakeboard etc, but groomed slopes, probably not...

:D

Glad that you like the shots.

Yes - it is a specialist tool, in terms of the amount of uses = you can use it for in one particular sport. But it also has applications across many others like mountain biking, downhill skateboarding, motorcross, trail running or behind a car.

Safety is an important issue in the design, there is a safety release joint where the pole attaches to the rider. This breaks free if it is put under any twisting force - similar to a ski binding.

Thanks for the honest feedback, it is helpful.

We're developing as fast as possible, so hopefully release won't be too far away. We're just working on the final design tweaks right now.

The best way to stay in touch is to sign up on the site below, if you do, there will be early-bird specials just before we launch.
