The Super-Visor Low Profile Under Visor Mount for Motocross, BMX, MTB and ATV riders debuts this week! What a crazy couple of weeks. Two new products in two weeks.
The Super-Visor is the mount you've been waiting for if you race BMX or MTB, ride motocross or ATV.
Here's some of the design features that make it so great.
Integrated Roost Guard
The integrated roost guard protects the mount from snapping when hit with roost debris, keeping your GoPro safely on your helmet and off the track - safer riding for everyone.
Smoother GoPro Footage That Looks More Like Your Memory
Lower placement than traditional helmet mounts ensures you get the smoothest footage possible. With the camera only a couple inches above your eyes, the footage looks a lot more like what you remember from your rides because the POV is so close to the same position as your eyes.
No one know's you're filming so you can blend in a lot better.
UCI Race Ready
Design is compliant with all UCI helmet cam breakaway rules for filming during events. Designed to breakaway with your visor during crashes.
No Snag - Safer Riding
Protects your head and neck by preventing the snagging of other riders, branches, fencing and flagging tape, keeping everyone safer.
I pride myself on Pro Standard's completely different take on GoPro accessories. My products look nothing like anyone else's. It's because I've done so many different things in my life and they all usually involve some form of shooting photos or video combined with having fun.
I've been a professional photographer since 1983. A filmmaker since 1986 and a pro snowboarder from 1983 till about 1990. Shooting pro snowboarders is a lot of fun. I've traveled the world doing just that. Dragging equipment around gets pretty old but the enjoyment of capturing amazing moments never does.
When I realized that I was carrying more equipment for my GoPro, the world's most versatile camera than I was for my DSLR, I knew I could add something to the GoPro experience that made it more fun to shoot and more fun to travel with less stuff. I didn't know I was going to invent what Mountain Life Magazine calls "the Best New GoPro Accessory".
GoPro mounts and accessories are great, they just aren't as versatile or indestructible as the camera. Knowing from experience that everything only happens once, I wanted to make accessories that kept you in the moment instead of always saying, "Hang on a second while I change mounts!"
The only way way to do that was rethink the GoPro accessories experience and start with the goal of every accessory being able to be used the maximum amount of different ways so that you have to change mounts the least amount of times to get the shots you want.
Once I'd created the Grill Mount, the mount that Kris Jamieson the former Head of Global Education and Training at GoPro calls "The single overall greatest GoPro mount ever made", my next design job was to speed up and simplify the whole changing mounts experience so you could use more mounts without having to change the bolt on your camera. I wanted a consistency of connection. Because, no matter how good the camera was, changing mounts sucked.
The GoPro family of mounts didn't have a unified connection. Sometimes you had to use the cleat to change mounts and sometime you had to unbolt it. Changing mounts was a slow process. It was such a hassle that lots of people who loved the camera stopped using it just because of that. Too much hassle. Worst of all you only had four angles. 0°, 90°, 180° and 270°.
So that was my design assignment. Unified connection experience, faster change and the ability to put your GoPro on any angle.
A big thing I also wanted was durability. I was so tired of parts breaking right when you needed them most. We went through a lot of different materials before we ended up custom formulating our own material that had the characteristics we wanted. The ability to abuse it, treat it like dirt, flex instead of shatter, perform instead of fail. 360 Quick Connect parts are definitely the highest quality parts you can get for your GoPro. It's why I can give a lifetime warranty.
It it took two years of R&D, and more prototypes and blind canyons to get to the 360 Quick Connect parts that are finally shipping out to the world. I had to explore every possibility to make sure that my way, 360 Quick Connect was the best, most efficient, effective and versatile way to achieve my design goal.
I've succeeded. 360 Quick Connect is absolutely the best mounting system ever created for GoPro cameras. Get yours now and change how you shoot.
Kris "Jaymo" Jamieson is a huge fan of the Grill Mount. In this video he uses the Grill Mount combined with his GoPro Hero 5 Session three ways - as a mouth mount, tripod mount and a hook mount.

Plastic packaging sucks. All you have to do is go to Bali and see a paradise drowning in plastic waste or see whale wash up on shore filled with plastic to never want to add to that problem. So we went to great lengths to make sure that our eco footprint is as small as possible even if it cost more. You have to put your money where your mouth is to see any change. Or at least start a change. First we made the plastic parts as indestructible as possible so they last as long as possible. Then we went to work on traditional packaging. Skipping the little ziplock bags and plastic trays and boxes that everyone else seems to be proud of, we made all our 360 Quick Connect packaging, 100% plastic free, which we are very proud of.
The Pacific Gyre is growing every year and now plastic waste has even started showing up in the arctic. No matter how well intentioned we are a huge percentage (80%) of plastic packaging ends up not getting recycled
Ignorance is is bliss but ignorance is also complicity. So as a brand and a person I couldn't be a part of the problem. So when it came time to create and design the packaging for the 360 Quick Connect, the best new GoPro accessory, there was no decision. We were going plastic free.
All our packaging for the 360 Quick Connect GoPro mounting system is 100% plastic free and printed on recycled paper with vegetable oil ink. All our sayings printed on the paper parts bags we used to replace the ziplock bags that traditionally get used, are Kenism's collected from my friends when asked for "What kind of dumb stuff have I said over the years that are either inspirational or funny or both. We ended up with these three. There were more than a few others saved for round two. #Lulusfromkenmon #stretch #badjokesarefree
The packaging is also printed in Canada at Topline Printing in Calgary. Everything is packaged in Whistler so that all our parts can be shipped in bulk from China to save space on shipping so less fuel is used to get us our epic GoPro accessories.
The shipping boxes we use we use to get you your order make us stoked every time we ship parts out. We use cardboard takeout food boxes from Earth Pak. We designed the 360 Quick Connect packaging to nest inside the takeout container. We couldn't stand the over packaged corrugated cardboard box that is the standard shipping container. The take out box is perfectly strong enough to keep your Grill Mount or 360 Quick Connect parts safe in the mail. Best of all our shipping box is so light we can ship two Grill Mounts to you for the same price.
Going left or right? Get better surfboard mounted footage and photos by slightly rotate your 360 Quick Connect GoPro mount on the Cleat connector so you get more lip or more wall and best of all get yourself out of center and get a better feeling of the wave you're riding.
