I bought this to use for snowboarding and the footage is a lot more stable than other contour mounts but the adhesive on this blows. If you're going to use this on a helmet, make sure you have good quality super glue and know that once you have this on you can't change angles. I used something similar to gorilla glue for plastics and it's holding perfectly, although messy.

I totally disagree with the comments about the poor quality double sided tape that these mounts come with.
I wanted to relocate one of these mounts to a different location on my helmet, and I could not believe how difficult it was to remove.
The key to making these mounts really stick is to clean the surface with isopropyl alcohol before hand.
If you don't, then nothing will stick permanently, no matter what type of tape you use.
As for using glue on a $750.00 helmet....forget about it...!

This product should cost eight bucks at the most, certainly not the twenty dollars (not including shipping)that this mount is being sold for here. This mount is nothing but a peice of molded plastic attached to some flimsy two sided tape. The design, product and adhesive are all cheap, and it probably costs the manufacturer about a dollar to make so the twenty dollar price tag is way to much for what the buyer gets.

The main problem is this two sided tape. Basically you are supposed to attach your two hundred dollar (and up) camera to your helmet with a twenty-five cent piece of tape. It is ridiculous. I am a kayaker who runs class IV-V whitewater and I would not trust this mount to get down the river on one trip let alone many river trips. The tape just isn't durable enough to take the constant temperature changes as well as the wet to dry conditions of running rivers. This is just a poorly made product that will not meet my needs as a boater. The big problem for Contour is that this mount is not in the same league as some of the Go-Pro mounts that are less than this mount.

If you decide to purchase this mount understand that you are going to need to modify this product if you are using this mount for water sports. If you are doing any kayaking class III and up then you will need to improve this product before you trust it keep your expensive camera safe. I basically super glued mine to my helmet, and simply used the tape to keep the mount in place as the glue dried. My first river trip with this mount was the Russell Fork and at the bottom of El Herrendo I smashed into a rock that I have no doubt would have ripped this mount from my helmet had I not modified this product.

In the end this is a cheaply made product that is not going to meet the expectations of aggressive boaters or really any water sport enthuists. It is just way over priced for what the buyer recieves.

I ride dirt bikes and seem to have a penchant for hitting trees with my helmeted head. Personal problem I suppose.

Have torn the guts out of many of the rotating type mounts with all the branch bashing, but this simple stick on mount is far more durable. I run a waterproof case on my camera, more for sound reduction and impact protection than anything else.

Of course, once it is on, it is on, so you do have to have the angle right. If just starting out, I suggest using some two sided tape or other temporary means and then testing before arriving at the final angle. Also, the rotating mount has a tiny bit of slop in it that translates to some extra shake in the video compared to the simple stick on mount.
Either way, for my use on the dirt bike, the adhesive has been good. As I mentioned before, the guts get torn out of the rotating mount before the base lets go. I am hoping that if I eat it or really whack something, the camera does not get destroyed with this mount, it is on there for sure.

Gave it 4 stars as this is just a simple mount, I would like to see the price about 50% lower and then we are talking 5 stars. At least they give you 2 of them. Would prefer 1 left and 1 right though in the 2 pack. Sometimes I like to point the camera backwards to film my buddies behind me.

For your amusement, crash video on my CR250. Yep, the guts popped out of the [...]

...two sided tape sounds sketchy. It would be easier to melt a hole using the end of a small flat head screwdriver and punching strategic holes in the profile holder. Then all you need do is slip in a couple of zip lock ties to a bike helmet. Glue in snow or rain will never hold up. And the mount I had on my bike recorded every bump and rock I rode over.

I broke the plastic past of the mount that came with my roam, and bought this set to replace it. On my original mount the glue held great, but even with proper cleaning (with alcohol) I could not get either of these two mounts to stick to my helmet in the same place where I had my original one. I originally really liked the idea of being able to mount these on the side of my helmet, but after one season of use I can say that contour really needs to improve this product if they want to have any chance of competing with gopro. The plastic holding the camera is way too thin, and in my opinion way over priced. CONTOUR IF YOU IMPROVE YOUR MOUNTING SYSTEM I MIGHT STICK WITH YOUR PRODUCT, BUT FOR NOW I THINK YOU ARE LOSING THE RACE.

I can't complain. They are made for Contour camera, works with Contour camera. Just wish they made adhesive replacements for them.

I was worried about the adhesive not being strong enough to support my tumbles. I like to ride hard and often end up doing a somersault or two along the way. My fear was that I would lose the camera on the first fall. I rode with the mount on the top of my helmet (the side mount is stupid if you plan on wearing goggles). The top down vantage point works best for my clips anyways and the Contour has the option of pivoting the camera 90 degrees to accommodate. After a few hard falls (my goggles flew off with one particularly hard hit) the camera sat strong. I would check it after each crash to make sure I didn't need to look for it.

Follow the instructions: clean the helmet with alcohol and let the tape adhere overnight. The result is impressive. I asked a guy on the mountain his thoughts before buying mine and he said "the plastic will break before the tape let's go." That was enough for me to make the plunge.

So far I am very happy with the result!
