Topeak’s RideCase is an engineering grade plastic phone case with a rigid composite fibre base plate. It has an integrated foldout metal flipstand, that props the phone vertically or horizontally when off the bike.

Two mounting options allow fitting directly to the stem, or clamp around the bar or stem. The case plus stem mount weighs 81g, or 98g with the bar mount too.

We fitted ours using the stem mount, replacing the steerer’s usual top cap. Tightening the bolt also locks the adjustable angle of the supporting arm, then the RideCase just slides onto the mount and clicks into place.

The RideCase requires the iPhone to have any back and side coverings removed, and provides no additional surface protection, though an alternative weatherproof RideCase is available. The phone is secure within the case, and the supporting arm strong enough to lift the bike with, which gives great confidence that your flashy phone won’t bounce off.

The phone’s large size worked well above the stem. When mounted, the RideCase rotates by 90 degrees, allowing you to view apps in either orientation.
