What do you consider when buying a new bike? Durability? Size? Performance? Chances are many of the qualities you look for when choosing the best bike are also the qualities you’ll be looking for when choosing the best bike camera.
Whether you’re an MTB, BMX or road cycling nut, capture every exhilarating moment with the best small action camera money can buy. Here’s why we think that camera is Insta360 GO 2:
GO 2 is a tiny bike camera
Don’t spend the whole day wishing you’d left your heavy camera and gear at home. Insta360 GO 2 weighs just 27 grams (less than an ounce) and is about the size of your thumb!
GO 2 was designed to be the best bike camera around by achieving the performance of a regular-sized action camera in the smallest body possible, and boy does it deliver! Cramming all that tech, including a 1/2.3” inch sensor, into a 5cm camera was no mean feat, but the result is the most practical and lightweight bike camera on the market.
How does such a small action camera benefit cyclists and mountain bikers? There are two major advantages:
- When you’re not shooting, you can stick GO 2 in your pocket or your bag with your other BMX gear, cycling accessories or MTB accessories. Carry it for the entire day without feeling weighed down.
- When you are shooting, GO 2 won’t get in your way or obstruct your line of sight. Just mount it and press to start shooting hands-free footage. You’ll barely notice it’s there and you can live 100% in the moment.
Capture sick shots of your rides with MTB accessories
So GO 2 is small, which is great, but once it’s mounted on your helmet, is there really a difference between GO 2 and other standard action cams? Well, that’s just it! When you buy GO 2, you’re not just getting a small action camera, you’re also opening a whole new world of creative shooting possibilities.
GO 2 comes standard with three accessories included in the box—the Easy Clip, Magnet Pendant and Pivot Stand. Thanks to GO 2’s magnetic design, you can pop the camera in and out of these accessories in a snap, without the need to unscrew a typical action cam mount. Best for bike riding is the Easy Clip, which you can clip onto your helmet for sick POV shots.
Compatible with a whole range of MTB accessories, GO 2 offers new perspectives into riding. For mechanical shots it can be attached to the frame or the pedals with the Action Mount Adapter. Shoot unicorn shots with the helmet extension mount, record the road ahead with the handlebar mount or even nestle it among the spokes, if you enjoy feeling dizzy!
FlowState Stabilization and Horizon Lock
For many cameras, the bumpy business of trail rides often leads to shaky and blurred shots. Insta360 GO 2 is a different story thanks to its world-class FlowState image stabilization technology. Another built-in feature of GO 2 is Horizon Lock, which ensures that no matter how much the camera moves and at what angle, the horizon will always be level.
All you have to do is upload your footage to the Insta360 mobile app or Studio desktop software. The algorithm will take the most turbulent of pump tracks and the toughest trails and turn them smooth as butter.
Nobody wants a delicate bike camera
Small? Yes. Lightweight? Yes. Fragile? Not a chance. GO 2 is an action camera, and an action camera that breaks easily isn’t useful to anyone.
The durable design of GO 2 ensures it can withstand the impacts of MTB trails and BMX tracks. We all know that when you’re riding your bike, sometimes you fall off. It happens. In order to prevent scratches or damage to the lens if you do crash, Insta360 GO 2 comes straight out the box with a protective lens guard. If you do break it, simply screw it off and screw on a replacement.
For those of us not lucky enough to live in sunnier climates, Insta360 GO 2 is also an IPX8 waterproof action camera. It can be submerged to a depth of 4 meters (13ft), so however much rain or mud you’re willing to endure on your ride, GO 2 will endure it with you.
