I bought 2 of these. One to mount on my snowboard helmet and one for my motorcycle helmet.
First I would like to tell you what you get in the box. You get the mount, a safety strap and an extra 3M stick on pad.
I have wiped out many times on my snowboard and the mount has never come off. At high speed on my motorcycle
it has never come off. I find the locking mechanism works great. There is no movement of the camera. I attach the safety
strap from my camera to the helmet strap and not from the camera to the mount.
Sometimes you want to adjust the angle in which you are shooting and this mount allows you to do so.
The old mount that came with my contour HD had velcro and you could rotate it, but I was always worried that it would pop off.
Not with this mount. I would not hesitate to buy this mount if your looking for a good solid mount with rotation options.

The first generation of this mount suffered from its fair share of problems, and this new mount addresses all of them:

1) The old base was perfectly flat, which, okay, is implied in the description. But I'm guessing the vast majority of these end up on (slightly convex) snow and skate helmets. The little wings make the base slightly concave, perfect for getting as much of the adhesive pad on the surface as possible. I'd estimate 70% of the original mount pad ended up sticking to my Smith Holt helmet; the new one probably has 95% contact. Of course, the wings flex in the other direction as well, if you want to mount it on a completely flat surface.

2) The old ratcheting was coarse, and rough. At times it could feel like you may twist off the mount, or break it. This new one glides smoothly when unlocked, but is completely immobilized at whatever angle you choose when you lock it.

3) The fit of the rail mount and the base could be very poor; a mounted camera would still wobble or jiggle, even when locked. This new mount is completely still.

Of course I'm disappointed to have to buy another mount, but Contour have clearly taken all the feedback they received from the first mount, and made the one I'd always wanted.

This mount is a must if your original Contour camera came with the older mount. Camera adjustments are easy, especially at night when you can easily see the laser beams from the camera. The old mount was pretty junky (IMO) and this one is great. I would highly recommend this if you have the old type mount.

I used this to mount a ContourRoam HD to the side of my motorcycle helmet. It is very secure and the rotation feature allows you to get the right angle. There is a little play after it is locked though. It will still rotate a mm or so, but it hasn't noticeably affected my footage. The camera also doesn't seem to lock very tightly to the rails. It only takes a light press forward to unlock it, but it hasn't unlocked itself or fallen off my helmet yet and I ride on the highway frequently. It has a loop to secure the safety line, so I will not lose it if it does. The mount comes with two adhesive pads. They seem to be 3M extreme mounting tape or similar. They are very strong, yet not too difficult to remove without damage. The surface I mounted it to is slightly curved, but the mount bends slightly, so it is secure. One other gripe is the price. It seems a bit expensive for a small piece of plastic that isn't built to the tightest tolerances.

The little footies on this do not stay put w/the contour (no pun intended) of your helmet. The mount still prefers to be on a flat surface. On the flip side, the lock that allows you to rotate it is nice and far better than the weird gear/velcro mount they had before. All in all, no issues w/this, but it's not perfect. Used for two seasons of snowboarding.

I bought this mount for my Helmet (Smith Optics Vantage Adult Ski Snowmobile Helmet, Acid W3, Medium.) I put the mount on top. You need to let the tap to sit over night for great adhesion. The mount is great and easily adjustable for rotation. I had another one that I mounted on the side of a different helmet and worked great. My son now has it doing snowboarding and it is still attached to his helmet despite his numerous falls.
I would recommend this product.

I use this as a dash mount for my ContourROAM. It sticks to an old cell phone suction cup mount. I have been using it like that for a long time. Right now its winter and normally in the single digits in the morning. So far it sticks well in cold weather. There are cheaper ways to mount a contour but the ability to rotate the mount is why im buying a second one of these.

This mount works pretty well, but it is a little pricey for how simple it is. The only other drawback is it is not quite concave enough to match my helmet shape perfectly. It is flexible so you can bend it onto the helmet surface, but the edges have still popped up a bit. Regardless of that it is still holding my camera on at over 100mph.
