New K-Edge Garmin MTB and universal camera mounts

Solidly built options for front and rear videocamera mounts

Following up on the excellent updates to its more road-oriented Garmin Edge computer mounts, K-Edge has now added a mountain bike-specific model plus new universal Go Big front and rear mounts for action cameras. They're not cheap but no other options we've encountered are as solidly built – or swanky – either.

Instead of clamping to the bars, the new K-Edge Garmin MTB/stem mount effectively acts as a 5mm spacer and secures underneath the top cap of a conventional 1 1/8" threadless headset. Available in either a solid or hinged configuration depending on your cockpit setup, the new mount places the computer head above the stem where it's a bit more protected in a crash than with an out-front type of mount.

The K-Edge Garmin MTB mount

As with K-Edge's other Garmin mounts, the new MTB variant is made of CNC-machined aluminum and comes equipped with the company's new molded Delrin computer interface insert for a silkier and more secure fit than the old all-aluminum design. Claimed weight for the fixed model is 21g while the adjustable one is just slightly heavier at 25g.

Adjustable versions will cost US$39 while fixed-angle mounts will cost US$29. Both are offered in black, red or gunmetal anodized finishes.

Videographers looking for the ultimate in platform stability get a trio of new Go Big mounts that will fit any action camera with a universal ¼-20" threaded mounting socket, including GoPro, Contour, Drift, Sony, and others. Like with K-Edge's Garmin mounts, the Go Big camera mounts are CNC machined for a precise fit and secure hold on either 31.8mm-diameter handlebars or most conventional saddle rails.

Rear-facing mounts incorporate a hinge to help perfectly dial in the field of view and there's also a separate ¼-20" adapter to convert current GoPro-specific K-Edge Go Big mounts.

Claimed weight for complete mounts is around 45g and retail prices range from US$59 to US$79. The standalone adapter will cost US$29.

All of K-Edge's new Garmin and camera mounts should be available now.

James started as a roadie in 1990 with his high school team but switched to dirt in 1994 and has enjoyed both ever since. Anything that comes through his hands is bound to be taken apart, and those hands still sometimes smell like fork oil even though he retired from shop life in 2007. He prefers manual over automatic, fizzy over still, and the right way over the easy way.
  • Discipline: Mountain, road, cyclocross
  • Preferred Terrain: Up in the Colorado high-country where the singletrack is still single, the dirt is still brown, and the aspens are in full bloom. Also, those perfect stretches of pavement where the road snakes across the mountainside like an artist's paintbrush.
