Fox is throwing all the acronyms at you with the V3 RS- MIPS, MVRS… OK, two acronyms. MIPS which is an impact technology that stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. This reduces the chance of your brain doing the twist if you crash. MVRS, which translates to Magnetic Visor Release System, in theory gives the visor a chance to absorb some impact before breaking off for additional protection.
That flexy-bit reminds us a bit of the Thermoplastic Polyurethane that we make our 3D printed GoPro chin mounts out of. This material is flexible enough to twist into a pretzel yet remain rigid enough to keep your GoPro (or DJI Osmo, Insta360, etc.) pointed exactly where you aim it without inducing vibration even at full boogie over rocky terrain.
Our action camera mounts are designed to extend far enough from the chinbar of the Fox V3 RS to allow the camera to have plenty of “tip back” angle for when you are standing on your pegs. This tip back angle allows you to align the camera with your eyeport on the helmet to get a parallel view of the terrain - a little of the bike, a little of the horizon - you know, the perfect perspective.
We have found that the chin mount location is optimal for a POV camera for a couple of reasons. First, audio pickup is much better. With the camera in front of your mouth you can clearly hear yourself swearing as your buddy pulls away or laughing when the same buddy gets stuck in the rut you warned him about 10 minutes earlier. Second, your camera does not stick out where a tree branch can knock it out of alignment, or worse, send it tumbling into the weeds or off the side of a cliff. While there is a chance that you may hit the camera if you crash, we have found that most people do their best to turn their head to avoid a face full of dirt whenever possible. Even if you do go chin first into a rock, we can promise you that the mount will not break.
That is a bold statement, one that we back up with a lifetime warranty. Hassle free, just let us know and we will get a new one out to you.
We designed the mounts for maximum convenience, not just durability. The GoPro mounting screw is on the opposite side making it easier to access the battery side door. We also have notches to help you get a consistent tip back angle every time. You should be able to fit most cameras from GoPro to DJI Osmo and everything in between on our custom-fit mounts.
The design of this mount was a bit tricky due to the shape of the Fox V3 chinbar, but we always win the design game. The mount is rock solid yet removable without leaving any residue on the helmet. We do offer replacement 3M mounting tape if you want to reattach it later. That said, you will need to also pick up some Gorilla Clear Grip Glue (say that five times fast) to adhere the tape to the mount.
If you were wondering if our mounts work with the Media Mod, the answer is yes, so get out there and make some epic content.
