LifeProof Cases were designed with the Four Proofs in mind: Water, Dirt, Snow, Shock. The cases are designed to be used at pretty much any time so you can have confidence and freedom to stay connected wherever you are with whatever you’re doing. If you participate in any sort of endurance sport, staying connected can mean a lift home after a twisted ankle, an unexpected second or third flat on the bike, or any other reason, including emergencies. LifeProof was designed to protect against water damage to 6.6 feet under water and shockproof to 6.6 feet above ground. As with all things, there is no complete guarantee that failure of protection will never occur.
The new LifeProof Bike and Bar Mount fits a wide range of bicycle bars and bar-stems so users can take their iPhone on the road, off the trails, on the snowmobile, motorcycle or jet ski. Crafted out of premium, high-impact materials, LifeProof users can bike through rugged terrain, drive cross country on a motorcycle using GPS, take video during bike trips, listen to favorite tunes, stay connected on the work site and much more, while having full access to all iPhone functions. All buttons and features are accessible in the mount, including iPhone speaker and microphone, and allows for use of performance and navigation apps in real-time.
The LifeProof bike and bar mount can be adjusted for portrait or landscape orientation and is rear-camera compatible so it can be adjusted to vertical angle suitable for video recording activities. The gimbal ball-head allows for fine adjustment of viewing angle. The LifeProof bike and bar mount allows for the iPhone to conveniently be placed and removed with one hand through a quick release locking mechanism, giving the rider the ability to fully focus on enjoying the ride. The MSRP is $39.99.
LifeProof sent me a case and bike mount to try out. The bike mount comes with three inner rubber rings to give a secure fit for differing tube or handlebar thicknesses. The case is pretty intuitive, though the additional connector is not. Their website has great instructions to follow both in written and video form, well worth watching before use.

LifeProof Cases are designed to be used with iPhones (when will someone create things like this for my Blackberry? Probably never.). However, in a bit of serendipity, my wife’s Droid X fit perfectly into the bike mount. No case means no protection, but on pleasant days it could be used with that as well.
If you have an iPhone and need to carry it with you regardless of weather or location, these LifeProof Cases are definitely something to look at. High quality, reasonable price for the performance, and peace of mind.
