I do get some people from time to time that walk up to the Sprinter van and elevator pitch me on some products they have come up with that I should try. While I was at an amateur national recently I met Ben Wilson who runs RP Moto and he mentioned that he makes watch mounts for dirt bike and mountain bike handlebars. Now this may not seem like a big deal to some but for a guy like me who wears a heart rate monitor watch 24/7 this was kind of a big deal for me. I also like to support people who actually ride and market their products in the same place they are at every weekend.
The RP Moto Watch Mount is a Flexible 3D-printed 95A thermoplastic polyurethane mount that is easily strapped on your handlebars with no hardware. Keeps your watch in a convenient location while also protecting both the the underside of the watch and the handlebars. Specially-designed part infill and flexible material also reduces the transfer of vibration to your watch, which could potentially damage its delicate electronics (which I have experienced).
Now this isn’t revolutionary product or anything, but it is nice that this mount is easy to slap on and allows the watch to be viewable while moto’ing. If I don’t have to wear my watch while doing motos, I try not to and mounting the watch on crossbar-less handlebars is a pain in the ass as well as risky for an expensive watch. I have been using the RP Moto Watch Mount for a while and it has made my life a little easier when doing motos with my kid. For $12.99 you can get a few of them and spread them around your two wheeled machines in your garage. RP Moto has mounts for all different types of watches and you check out their website to see if they have one that fits yours! www.rp-moto.com.
