Hey Doug,

I've got the Virb. Which suction cup mount do you have/use. Looking to mount on helmet for starters.

Thanks,

Robert

The virb comes with a curved sticky mount for the helmet. Just make sure it clears your shield if its modular

It's easy to mount, but like Kirk said, just make sure you are leaving enough room for the visor or flip up.





The added advantage is that at high speeds, you can steer with only a slight adjustment to your head. It is rather ugly though, so here is what I've been working on as a modification...

Yes I've contemplated using that one. But I was looking for a less permanent swappable (to use on other surfaces, ie bike) solution.

I don't know about the virb suction mount, but I know the GoPro is too large for a helmet. It really requires a solid flat surface to stick and a helmet can't provide that.

Ok. Riddle me this Batman. Is the sticky mount removable?
