GoPro cameras have changed the way we film adventure, sports, and even our lives. During the explosion of POV cameras, third party GoPro accessories and mounts played a huge part in allowing people to capture incredible footage.
Our company started out building accessories for GoPro cameras and after years of testing and feedback, we’re excited to introduce a new line of lightweight, durable GoPro accessories.
Rhino GoPro Accessories are designed to easily get you 3rd person footage. While there are other poles and spins mounts on the market, we designed ours to be modular, super strong, and ultra-light weight.
Rhino 360 Swivel Mount
Capture 360º video when you attach the Rhino 360 Swivel Mount to your helmet. Simply attach the Rhino Pole EXT’s to each end of the 360 Swivel Mount and use your GoPro and the included counterweight to achieve stunning 360º footage.
Secure the entire assembly to your helmet and it will spin around effortlessly.
Rhino Magnet Mount
We also designed the Magnet Mount, a simple, yet powerful, magnetic quick release for the 360 Swivel Mount. It is designed to break away when excessive force is applied.
Simply mount the included curved base to your helmet using the adhesive pad. Then snap in the 360 Swivel Mount to start filming.
Rhino Pole EXT
The Rhino Pole EXT in an extendable, carbon fiber GoPro pole that expands from 18 inches to 32 inches with a simple twist.
The Rhino Pole EXT is built to be modular and go from being a hand-help pole, to a helmet-mounted extension pole, to part of the Rhino 360 Swivel Mount system. It’s extremely versatile, very durable, and is the only GoPro pole you’ll need to capture amazing footage.
We decided to make this pole 2 sections and 32” long because it is much quicker to deploy and infinitely stronger than what is available on the market. In our testing 32” was the max length most filmers needed to capture incredible footage.
The Rhino Pole, or as it’s known around our headquarters: “The Selfie Stick”, is a fixed, 20 inch, carbon fiber POV pole which is perfect for basic hand-held shots. It’s really affordable, and can be used anywhere from hiking, snowboarding, or just playing with your kids at the beach.
Note: The Rhino Pole is NOT compatible with the Swivel Mount.
We’ve made our GoPro accessories lighter and stronger than ever. Built out of carbon fiber, durable glass-filled nylon, thermoplastic rubber, and aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum, our GoPro accessories are low-profile, easy to pack, and built to last. They all come with Rhino’s Lifetime Warranty and excellent support.
Rhino Camera Gear products come with a Lifetime Warranty. Our exceptional build quality allows for peace of mind knowing that your camera equipment is mounted to tough, top-of-the-line gear.
In fact, before we allow any new product to go to market, we put it through a series of intense quality control tests. We throw them against walls, light them on fire, stand on them, jump on them, and even drop them from space.
All that to say, Rhino Camera Gear products are built to last a lifetime. We walk this extra mile because we realize that to push the limits of film, your camera gear needs to function reliably in the toughest environments.
Our GoPro accessories are for everyone and every activity. Wether you’re biking, hiking, surfing, skating, kite boarding, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, racing, diving, sky-diving, wing-suit jumping or dropping from outer space, we’ve built incredibly light and incredibly tough gear that will help you capture absolutely stunning GoPro footage and create professional looking GoPro videos with unique angles and motion.

For our new Rhino GoPro Accessories, we've decided to ship around the world with DHL Express. While it's slightly more expensive, DHL Express ensures 2 or 3 day delivery times and is set up to clear customs faster.
At Rhino, we take product design and film making very seriously. It’s a great combination, because we love the products that help us capture amazing footage, and we also REALLY love the footage.
When we began redesigning our GoPro accessory line, we knew we wanted to create durable, lightweight, high-performance gear, but we knew the ultimate goal was building accessories that helped capture great video.
We’re happy to say our new line of GoPro accessories and mounts does just that. Pro athletes and amateurs have used and tested our gear, and they asked for more. So we’re really excited to bring these new products to market through Kickstarter, because this isn't the first time we've been able to create great gear using the Kickstarter platform! Thanks to our awesome backers, we’ve successfully funded three other Kickstarter campaigns, the Rhino Steady, Rhino Slider, and Rhino Rig.
The Kickstarter platform has shaped our company and allows us to bring products to life with people who are equally passionate about quality gear that helps capture quality video.
Our new GoPro accessory line is already designed. We have solid, working prototypes in our warehouse and by the beginning of the campaign, we'll have a small first-run of inventory to ship to the early-bird backers as soon as Kickstarter funds get deposited (usually 2 weeks).
As soon as we reach our funding goal, we will place an order for more parts and will expect them in our warehouse within 2 months of placing the order.
A big priority for us is to ship products as quickly as possible after a Kickstarter project is successfully funded, while maintaining perfect quality. To accomplish this, we always assemble our gear in-house, make sure the quality control process is intensive, and make sure the final product looks great before it leaves the warehouse.
Risks and challenges
Every project has potential obstacles. There is always a risk that supply chains break down or parts don't turn out right. Because of that reality, we do our very best to plan ahead and manage the risks.
With that in mind, sometimes the best planning gets thwarted by the reality that things can STILL go wrong. In the event that supply chain breaks down, shipments get delayed, parts are not ‘to spec’, or our warehouse gets flooded because of our weird obsession with coffee, we promise that our communication will be regular and honest.
We have a track-record of being forthcoming with our backers about the problems we face in the big manufacturing world as a small company. When issues with production have come up in the past, we come up with solutions, and our backers are the first to know.
All in all, we love our backers, because they have been building our company from the very first Kickstarter campaign we funded about 3 years ago. And what that means is we do EVERYTHING we can to exceed expectations, ship quickly, and impress with product quality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
