What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Hi everyone, thank you all so much for supporting my project. It was great to see all the encouragement from the bike community. You have ordered more than 100 parts in just 4 days! That's amazing. But in the last few days, we realized that we probably won't be able to reach the goal of 20.000 € in the next 18 days on Kickstarter. So we decided to interrupt the project, make some important changes and start NINJA MOUNT again.

NINJA MOUNT is specially designed for fullface helmets to fit the action cam under the visor. It consists of two parts which have a special form, putting your cam into the perfect position. 

 

 

 

 

NINJA MOUNT consists of the following parts you get with each set:

The adapter and the pivot arm are high quality injection molding plastic parts designed by us. The two screws are purchase parts, the quality of which we also monitor.

  

 

  

NINJA MOUNT is easy to install and uses the existing screw thread under the visor. Have a look at the installation video:

 

NINJA MOUNT is compatible with most mountain bike and motocross / quad fullface helmets.

This illustration shows some of the MTB fullface helmets we tested with NINJA MOUNT:

NOTE: if you have an ONEAL, URGE or another helmet without a screw thread under the visor, you will need an additional adhesive pad and a buckle (not included, but easy to get standard parts). Nevertheless, you will benefit from the special pivot arm and you can mount your camera under the visor. If you are unsure whether your helmet is compatible to NINJA MOUNT, please contact us! 

NINJA MOUNT works great with action cam standard housings, for example: 

  • GoPro: Hero/ Hero3/ Hero4/ Hero5/ Session/ Session5 
  • Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 
  • Rollei: 430 / 425 / 415 / 300 PLUS 
  • Sony unfortunately not! 

 NINJA MOUNT also works great with helmetlights!

 

 

 

  

 

 

Kickstarter gives us the opportunity to reach supporters all over the world. We will use the collected money to:

- manufacture the tools for injection molding

- purchase parts (plastic parts, screws, packaging, manuals), 

- include free shipping worldwide

- provide a high quality product.

Since many people asked us what happens if the required sum of 20,000 € is not reached: in this case, the money immediately flows back to the supporters!

 

Instead of offering you a fancy colour (i.e. pink) we plan to invest some of the earned money in upcoming talents. Check www.ninja-mount.com for the latest news!

 

 

Hi, I’m Daniel, a German engineer living near Munich. I am working in the automotive industry and am responsible for the development of plastic parts. Therefore, I have good connections to manufacturers of plastic parts and can ensure a good quality of the product. I am also a passionate downhill biker and always try to improve my equipment. During an injury break of the season 2016 I began to work on the idea of NINJA MOUNT.  

Eva, my girlfriend supports my project with her knowledge in marketing and sales. Eva is for example responsible for our fantastic homepage (see link below).

Risks and challenges

The highest risk may be that kids start to dismount the visor of their helmet, I would call that the "Rogatkin style" ;)
