Ahead of its launch at Interbike next week, Dahon has anounced details of the Biologic Bike Mount – a cycle mounting device designed for the iPhone.
Set to take advantage of the device’s GPS capabilities, the Biologic mount is weatherproof, using a welded, touch-sensitive membrane for keeping water out. The product is 360 degree pivotal, shock resistant and includes membrane protected openings for photos and videos on the fly.
Dahon vice president Joshua Hon said: “The iPhone has a phenomenal GPS mapping function that’s great when you just want to get on your bike to start exploring.
“But we weren’t able to find any good bike mounts. I scoured Amazon and the Internet for months but couldn’t find anything and ended up using a rubber band for quite a few months. So we sat down with a partner, drew up the specs, and ended up with the Bike Mount.”
The device is set to cost €49 and will be available in January 2010.
