Default How to mount a GoPro

Just got a GoPro helmet cam. Have the helmet mounts and that should not be a problem, but I am wondering how everyone is mounting them on their sleds? Tons of videos with them mounted up front facing the rider, and some others with them on the rear behind the rider facing forward.

So I am asking what do you guys think is the best way to mount it?

I always use either the role bar mount or the suction cup mount. Guess you could use an adhesive mount but then its permanent.

Ok I will look for one of those. I have the suction cup mount and was hoping that would work.

Sorry guys, accidentally posted this thread in the wrong forum

gopro suction cup mount. Just make sure to use a leash attached to you camera and fixed to the sled.



Amazon sells a "petco clamp" that works well too.

that is the one you want..the clamp adjusts to fit different diameter bars.


they do also make a roll bar mount...but I think that would be too large

handle bar mounts are not so good...because of counter-steering
