FXR Blade & Helium Helmet Chin Mount for Action Cameras

FXR Blade & Helium Helmet Chin Mount for Action Cameras

FXR is one of the more requested brands for us to make mounts for, and we have listened! In this article we talk about the mounts that we made for the FXR Blade and Helium helmets. We know that they are not the same shell, but that is the beauty of 3D printed mounts. They’re custom, baby! If you don’t see a mount for your lid, let us know and we will look into making one.

Capture all the action of your ride when you pair your favorite action camera with one of our custom, 3D printed chin mounts. Our mounts are designed to extend far enough from your chinbar to allow the camera to have enough “tip back” angle. 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.

An FXR Blade helmet is shown, slightly grayed out, with a wannabes chin mount and gopro installed. Three angles of the mount are shown in the foreground.

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.

Our chin mounts are made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane which has rubber-like properties. This allows us to make mounts that are flexible enough to twist into a pretzel, but strong enough to keep your camera pointed exactly where you aim it without inducing vibration even at full boogie over rocky terrain.

We designed the FXR 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 mounts are designed to be removable without leaving any residue on the helmet, and 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.

For samples of what kind of perspective our mounts can give you, check out our Instagram channel. That is unless you are under 15, then you can hit up our TikTok. If you are baffled by both of those, we also showcase our hooligan antics on YouTube. Whatever you choose, you can see why mounting your camera to the chinbar is the best way to capture the action.
