Utilizing your phone for bike navigation is the logical choice, while cycling computers can feel somewhat outdated. That's why we introduce Micro Mount, an inconspicuous mount designed by Loop, ensuring a secure attachment of your phone to your bicycle during your journeys. Micro Mount is not only robust but also eliminates the need to switch your phone case for compatibility. With this innovative mount, you can confidently navigate the roads, assured that your phone remains securely attached, while staying on track with the correct route.
Key Features :
Discreet - blends into your bike seamlessly and isn't bulky or distracting.
Sturdy - although small, Micro Mount is durable and withstands skids, falls, and other accidents.
Safety - Micro Mount was designed for safety being first. Holding your phone while on any sort of vehicle is distracting and dangerous.
Installing the Micro Mount is a breeze, taking just moments to complete. The fixed stem position is our recommended placement, ensuring a secure and convenient setup. To begin, remove the stembolt and cap, and replace them with the Micro Mount and utilize the included bolt, fastening it securely with the provided allen key. The entire process should not exceed 60 seconds, allowing you to swiftly set up your Micro Mount and get ready to ride!
Design and Development
Loop places great importance on attention to detail. Every aspect of the Micro Mount has been meticulously considered and refined, showcasing our commitment to excellence. From the precise sliding mechanism to the carefully crafted gentle tabs that provide added security for your phone, no element has been overlooked. When you hold a Loop product in your hand, you can immediately sense the superior quality and engineering that has gone into its design.
If your bike features a Threadless stem, you have the advantage of permanently replacing your stem bolt and cap with the Micro Mount. This means you won't require any additional accessory to securely attach the mount to your bike.
In the case of a Quill Stem, or if you prefer the flexibility of transferring the mount between different bikes, they offer accessory options that allow for easy removal of the mount.
1. Removable Adapter
2. Removable Kit (O-Ring)

What We Love
1. Puts Safety First
Engaging in navigation without a mount while on the move poses significant risks, and interrupting your ride to check the route is both frustrating and counterproductive to the convenience offered by navigation and training apps. With the Micro Mount, these concerns are alleviated, allowing you to focus entirely on the road and your cycling experience, freeing your hands from the task of holding your phone.
2. Specific Design
While existing mounts are available on the market, they often have a cheap appearance and seem more suitable for car dashboards rather than bikes. We believe your bike deserves a better solution. Other alternatives may require an expensive, dedicated phone case for compatibility. In contrast, the Micro Mount is always prepared to serve you, regardless of the type of phone case you have. It effortlessly accommodates your phone within seconds, allowing you to hit the road promptly without any hassle.
What We Don't
1. Replication Instances
Loop has encountered numerous attempts at replication. It is important to exercise caution when considering alternatives. Copies of their products have consistently exhibited larger sizes, increased weight, and slight changes in comparison. Could this mean that their design isn't as one-of-a-kind as claimed to be?
Is it Worth it?
Loop is renowned for crafting cycling accessories that stand out from the crowd. The Micro Mount, yet another remarkable addition to their lineup, distinguishes itself as a phone mount that defies the norms of existing options in the market. While upholding the same principles as their previous products, the Micro Mount sets itself apart by offering a unique and innovative design that is sure to impress cyclists seeking something truly exceptional. We think it's worth what it offers: security, safety, and effortless cycling with your device.
