Velocity Clip is the world’s only universal smartphone video mount. It is a convenient and inexpensive way for you to film hands free with the smartphone you already own. Use your Android, iPhone, or compact digital camera to film POV video, edit, upload and share immediately. Velocity Clip will accommodate any protective case to ensure your phone is totally safe. You can mount a Velocity Clip to your chest, head, bike, or any hard surface using four available accessories, a Head Mount, Chest Mount, Bike Handlebar Mount, or Adhesive Mount.

                 -up to 4 Mounting Options-

Velocity Clip +Adhesive Mounts- Every Velocity Clip comes with 1 flat adhesive mount and 1 curved adhesive mount to get you started. With these mounts you can record from any hard surface like your helmet, car dashes, or surf board. Every Velocity Clip also features standard tripod threads that allows you to mount your smartphone to any standard tripod!  

Velocity Clip Chest Mount- This accessory allows you to film from the comfort and angle of your chest. If you’re big, small, girl, or guy, this will fit you! Want to wear a big jacket and toss this on over it? Go ahead, it’ll fit it. This mount is great for skiing, skydiving, bungee jumping, skateboarding, or anything else where you’re trying to video what’s right in front of you.

• Adjustable one size fits all.

• Adjustable swivel allows for a full 180 degree angle range.  

Velocity Clip Head Mount- This accessory allows you to film from the true POV angle, your forehead, right where your eyeballs are located! This head mount works well over hats, beanies, and even fits over some bike helmets and other head protection gear. This mount is idea for anyone looking to film hands free, because it films right where you are looking. Use for snowboarding, biking, hunting/trap shooting, bird watching or even filming your children. Epoxy grips ensures that the head mount stays secure on your head or helmets.

• One size fits all

• Fully adjustable

• Epoxy grips for security

• Adjust Velocity Clip 180 degrees

Velocity Clip Bike Handlebar Mount- Easily attaches to most standard bicycle handlebars for great angles looking forward and backward! This mount is ideal for any kind of rider, whether you are a hardcore downhill mountain biker or leisurely tooling around town on your bicycle. This mount can be used to film the trail in front of you, POV shots of the rider, or even allows you to turn your smartphone into a bike mounted GPS or emergency bike light.

Our V2 includes stronger plastic ABS materials.  During testing for V1 we had 1 unit crack out of 200(after heavy use), that is actually a pretty good amount but we decided to make 100% certain that this wouldn't happen again. V2 also features stickier rubber grips on the clamp part, we never actually had any of the phones fall out of V1, but again we wanted to make certain that your phone stays 100% secure.  The rubber materials we are using now is the same that NFL receiver gloves are made of!

We need your help so we can fund our inventory!  Our goal is to raise $5,000 to get our first large inventory.  

Why do we need inventory? 

We need stock so we can start sending samples to retailers and distributors so we can start our revenue streams.  We also need stock for trade shows, it's pretty embarrassing showing up to a trade show without product :(  So far we have only had a few units on hand and we keep running out really fast, so it's very difficult for us to keep up with demand.  However, a large inventory will solve our problems.  

Story of Velocity Clip  

Two friends from Northern California, business graduates, and extreme sports athletes bring you the Velocity Clip. Born on a mountain side in Lake Tahoe, Ca on a ski trip with two friends from California State University Chico. Swen (Velocity Clip Founder) wanted to film his snowboarding trip with his cell phone. As college students we didn’t have $399 to spend on a GoPro. We got online and found there were tons of iPhone products, but these were also expensive and wouldn’t work for our phones. The problem was we both had Android phones, and two different models at that. So we set out to create a product that would work with ANY smartphone. Thus the beginnings of Velocity Clip was born!

Risks and challenges

One huge risk is delays from customs. We have been successful with small shipments but this will be our first large shipment. We have heard that sometimes customs can take 3 weeks for clearance, if this happens we will have to notify all our backers and press our trading companies to expedite the process.

Quality is a big issue, as we said earlier, we have only ordered in small amounts. If for some reason there is a drop in quality or some small error on the units, we will be stuck with a large inventory of defects. The best way to combat this is to keep in contact daily with our suppliers and ensure quality control isn't skipped. If we do receive a defective shipment, there will surely be delivery delays to the users, but we want to be sure there is a top notch product in their hands!
