A bike mount for your iPhone 5/5s can be handy for a lot of purposes. You’ll need bike mounts if you prefer tracking your bike ride (or using GPS). You’ll need bike mounts when you want to use your iPhone as an action-cam recording your bike tour.
A great bike mount comes with a lot of flexibility and holds your iPhone securely in place. Not only that, a great bike mount will also protect your iPhone from the elements: a mountain biking tour is going to hit a lot of dust and your iPhone needs to be safe.
Here’s a list of some of the Best iPhone 5/5s Bike Mounts:
#1. Bike Mount Pro Stem/Bar Mount
Bike Mount Pro is the companion to Quad Lock case for your iPhone 5/5s. It features a sturdy design made up of strong materials that keep the mount going for long. It’s easy to fix / remove your iPhone on / from the mount. The mount itself can be attached to your bike’s handlebar easily. You can use the O-rings if you plan to detach the mount frequently, or use the two zip ties for a permanent fixture. Note that you’ll need to purchase the case before you get the Bike Mount.

#2. Topeak Ridecase
Topeak Ridecase is a bike-mount-compatible case (the package includes the stem mount too). One important feature of the stem mount is that it’s adjustable: so you can go from a flat, horizontal orientation for the iPhone to a vertical one. It’s useful when you want to take a peak at the iPhone as you ride – or if you are recording video of the trail.
#3. Lifeproof Bike & Bar Mount
Lifeproof Bike & Bar Mount is one of the simplest bike mounts for the iPhone 5/5s. It’s made of nylon that makes it a bit more flexible than plastic mounts. The case itself comes with an integrated lock switch that secures the iPhone in the cradle. The mount best works with LifeProof case. Also, the mount can be fixed on bars of varying sizes.
The iBikeConsole is waterproof, shock-resistant and comes with a dual lock facility. This is one of the toughest bike mounts ever and a perfect fit for mountain biking (and all-weather bike tours). The case uses a lot of clamp-shutting parts and sturdy materials to ensure the highest levels of security. Also, there’s an integrated kickstand for when the iPhone is not mounted on the bike. The mount features a 360-degree rotation mechanism to offer easy, customizable rotation.
#5. Tigra Sport Bike Mount
This is one of the other waterproof bike mounts for your iPhone 5/5s. There’s full flexibility in rotating the mount in a 360-degree span. The mount can be mounted on the stem or the bar. The iPhone is largely accessible: you can plug in your earphone or even the lightning cable. There’s also an anti-glare membrane supposedly for easy outdoor (under the sun) viewing.
