About

Why not put your smartphone where it's accessible without cluttering your bars? Use it in conjunction with a suitable protective case or put those old, unused smartphones lying around the house to good use.

The INDIGO uni mount adapts smartphones for use with Garmin 1/4 turn mounts with a low profile and self adhesive attachment.

Running apps like strava, wahoo or mapmyride turn you phone into fully featured bike computer with GPS.

COMPATIBILITY

Devices:

  • Any smartphone with or without a protective and/or battery case that has a flat smooth rear surface including all iPhones and iPods in both portrait and landscape orientation. Not Recommended for screens over 5 inch. Doesn't work with rubber, silicon, textured and porous surfaces. We have been working with 3M to find a suitable solution for attaching to polyurethane covers which is work in progress.

Mounts:

  • INDIGO dual mount.
  • Most Garmin 1/4 turn mounts including Barfly and K-Edge.

The uni mount is injection moulded in uv grade acetal thermoplastic with 3M VBH tape for attachment.

When adhering the uni mount to your device, placement will be dependent on the device/mount combination.

Can be removed by heating adhesive pad with a hair dryer and peeling off.

Please note that the adhesive tape is amazing and provides a secure attachment but we do not accept liability if a device is damaged.

Risks and challenges

As product designers, we understand the process of product commercialisation. In the past we have undertaken this process for our own products and also for our clients. Experience prepares us for the challenges that lie ahead, knowing full well there'll be some.

DEVELOPMENT
INDIGO uni mount has evolved out of the development of INDIGO dual mount. We'll endeavor to maintain the concept, hoping to improve at every step.
See recent development of the INDIGO range here: www.fb.com/indiglolights.
