Ive had a couple of helmet-mounted cameras before getting the Contour camera and the mounts have always been "tempramental" to say the best. From the picture on Amazon, this one didn't look too convincing either but I gave it a go and I'm glad that I did.

Unlike a lot of other mounts, which use a combination of velcro and glue, this one uses two fabric "tapes" with snap-lock fasteners. The tapes are of generous length which means that they are highly adaptable to whatever the vent-spacing on your helmet happens to be. Fitting them is easy, loop the tapes through the vents, run them through the plastic snap-locks and clicp them tight. Stability of the camera comes from cinching the tapes up nice and tight, which the snap-lock connectors make easy work of. Using the tapes to mount also means that it's easy to get the lens positioned just how you want it on the helmet - central or to one side - just by adjusting the tape lengths.

Once mouinted there's even some fine-tuning of the camera angle built into the mount, allowing a few degrees of up/down tilt.

The mount uses Contour's "TRail" system which provides for an extremely secure atttachment of the camera to the mount itself - in fact I'd recommend putting the camera on the mount before attaching the mount to your helmet. Likewise, unmount the whole setup from the helmet before trying to remove the camera - the TRail system keeps a tight hold of tings. So far the vented helmet mount has held firm and provided great footage from some seriously bumpy mountain bike riding without budging, including hits from branches etc.

This is easily the best helmet mounting platform I've come across for cycling helmets so far and a great option for your Contour camera. Highly recommended.

I purchased this helmet mount to use with my bicycle helmet, it works, but it does tend to work itself loose after a few hours of riding causing the camera to shake about, resulting in shaky video. It is however a good compromise if you do not wish to use the sticky camera mount that comes with the Contour HD camera.

Flawed design 9 Mar. 2010
By Richard Singer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I just received my VholdR helmet mount. After strapping it to my bike helmet, I noticed that the pin holding the two plastic pieces together, slid to one side, allowing the other side to come apart. There is no provision for the pin to stay put, allowing the two-piece construction to randomly come apart. This is particularly dangerous if the supplied leash is not used - potentially resulting in a lost or damaged camera. At very least, the construction as supplied, may not serve as a secure camera mount and may induce a shaky video.

I fixed the problem by removing the pin and putting a rubber-band between the pin and the half-round seat in the camera-mount, then cutting the rubber band after the pin was mostly slid into the helmet-mount. Then I used a thin-bladed screw driver to push the pin completely into the helmet-mount. This is something of a temporary solution, as the rubber will eventually degrade and loosen. But for now, I have an interference fit between the pin and the plastic parts.

Pin Broke Off the Base Right Away!!! 21 May 2010
By Rex V. Polito - Published on Amazon.com
Good tilting concept but absolutely poor design and plastic material on the base saddle.
The pin which holds the slider to the base of the mount broke off right after I landed
a jump off a 4 feet ramp while snowboarding. The plastic saddle is too weak/thin to hold
the camera securely. The side of the camera touches and exerts some pressure against
the base of the mount which causes the pin to pop out from its saddle.

Don't buys this! Vholdr makes good cameras but this accessory is absolutely disappointing.
Look elsewhere or wait until they correct and improve this design.

Does not fit ContourRoam 22 Sept. 2011
By Jinko - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Good product idea and looked like it would be good for biking. But it wouldn't fit the new ContourRoam camera. The two mounts that came with the camera fit well while this one could barely even go 1cm into the camera with a lot of force. Returned, Amazon helped and the service was good.

Not a steady mounting system 13 Sept. 2010
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I tried this helmet mount on several mountain bike rides. The camera moves around in the mount and rattles with any kind of bump. Probably okay if you are just walking around but don't expect good video if you are doing anything remotely bouncy.

I would not buy one again 17 Aug. 2010
By Tony - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Strap design wouldn't really ever get fully secure on my helmet, though it didn't matter because one crash and the plastic ribs in the middle tore right off. I know you want to have a weak link somewhere, and better on that than your camera, but maybe a detachable design or something with a little more thought. It also did not offer much in regards to adjustment with the "rocker plate". In the end, I still love my Vholdr camera, but I got little use out of this cam mount before it was completely toast.

Two thumbs down for a badly designed product.
