Finn bike mount: can be used universally for many smartphones

Finn instructions

The concept of the "Finn" universal mount is as simple as it is ingenious. It puts an end to the fact that you need a new holder for every new iPhone model and is otherwise not picky about the smartphone brand. The makers of Finn come from Austria and advertise with no less than the slogan "For every smartphone, for every handlebar, fits in every pocket!" How it works? With a fairly flexible material: silicone. How it works exactly can be seen in the following video that you can find on the homepage getfinn.com place.

Now you might wonder whether your own smartphone is actually supported. For this reason I have put together a list of models that were named in customer reviews and are therefore almost certainly compatible with the Finn:

The Finn is identified as a bicycle holder, but I have found a video, in which a user also uses it as a smartphone holder for the motorcycle. I suppose it depends a bit on the thickness of the motorcycle handlebar and the size of the smartphone. A thick motorcycle handlebar and a Samsung Galaxy S5 should bring the Finn to the edge of what is possible. Although a customer even his Acer phablet attached to a bicycle handlebar with the Finn bracket - without it tearing.

By the way, Finn's customer service is very courteous. All customer reviews that have reported about a cunning Finn have been updated with a new one in a short time.

It is also highly praised by Ingress playerswho think it is a must buy for Ingress cyclists. I don't know the game directly, but you have to navigate the city using your smartphone.

It is also interesting that the bracket can easily handle even very rough terrain. One user was even on an alpine cross and on various MTB tours with it and only has praise for the Finn. So it actually seems to live up to its good reputation.

I also found some practical tips ...

  • When the Finn is not in use, a user rolls it under the bicycle saddle. He's been doing this for a while and hasn't lost it yet. Of course, the silicone also gives it a very good "grip" and keeps it trapped.
  • The Finn can also be used very well to attach a power bank to the bike bar. When you are out and about with the navigation software, it sucks a lot of battery and on longer tours a small power bank is not wrong.
