For avid cyclists out there, how many times have you had to fumble with your iPhone to respond to a text, call or to check something? That can now change with the Kickstarter project, the Handleband (from the makers of the WINGstand).

Our phones help us navigate and train. They’re our cameras, our lights, and our emergency link home. So why don’t we use them with our bikes?

The Handleband is a simple tool that uses the untapped power of our smartphones. It is an elegant and universal means

of uniting your smartphone with your bicycle.

Essentially the Handleband easily straps onto your bike handle and securely mounts your iPhone. It’s also removable (or it can be permanent by strapping on two zip ties) and will work with any bike and any iPhone case. It won’t cover your iPhone’s camera or light plus it can also hold other objects, such as a flashlight. Plus–it’s a bottle opener too (don’t drink and ride!). The band even has a cut out to access your iPhone homescreen’s dock.

With 14 days to go, the Handleband project has raised $52,299 (as of writing) and smashed through its initial funding goal of $12,000. Pledges for a Handleband starts at $25 (plus $10 extra for shipping outside the USA). Is this something you’d be interested in?

We’ve funded this project and will let you know how it is when it arrives! Check it out here over on Kickstarter.

Thanks William

    Personally I have the Quadlock Case and love it. I’m not sure I’d trust my iPhone with this project.

    Didn’t know this was an issue.

    Just curious, can you get a ticket if your texting/using a handheld device while riding your bike?

    Same as Daniel here… this case seems like a bad joke to me. The Quadlock Case is just the best solution on the market right now… and as it seems… the foreseeable future.

  • The difference between the Handleband and the Quadlock is the former does not require a case to function. This makes the Handleband appeal to people who have all sorts of cases. Also, the Quadlock is secured to a bike with zip ties–which the Handleband can as well. I see the Handleband + OtterBox case as the ultimate solution.

  • What do you see as a joke with the Handleband case?

  • Jacques Saint-Germain

    The strap that goes over the iPhone… just looks really bad to me. But I guess the term “joke” was exaggerated on my part.
