As fitness tracking fever continues, smartphone bike mounts are becoming more in demand, in the interest of accessing features such as GPS maps, ride statistics and cardiovascular stats from wearable trackers.

If you like the idea of the iPhone 6 for its large screen but aren’t sure if you’ll find a compatible bike mount, look no further.

What’s new

BioLogic bike mount for iPhone 6

Urban cycling gear guru BioLogic has released its anticipated Bike Mount Plus for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which offers 360-degree rotation so that you can choose between using your phone in portrait or landscape mode.

Like the others in the company’s smartphone case selection, it’s shockproof and waterproof, offering protection from impact, rain, sweat, mud and dirt without blocking access to phone features.

MSRP $39.95 and €39.95; available from retailers worldwide.

Grows (or shrinks) with your iPhone

Magnetic iPhone Bike Mount by Proper

Australia-based Proper offers a case for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, as well as models of yesteryear, that all attach to the same mount for your bike, and it also offers a mount for your car, facilitating GPS navigation.

You can choose your priorities, for they offer both a Light and Strong case and are available in black and grey for 20 AUS to 35 AUS ($29.55).

The M Lock bike mount costs 59.95 AUS ($50.60) and you don’t need to update it for the next iPhone model to come, for all of Proper’s iPhone cases can be mounted on it.

Everything included

Quad Lock's dual locking system

To score a case and compatible bike mount in one purchase, try the Quad Lock mounting system, whose mount for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was announced in August and claims to be ultra-light and ultra-strong.

It comes with a rain poncho and the case itself detaches for use as a protective cover when you’re not cycling. All the hardware is included. 69.95 AUS ($59).
