The Nite Ize Handleband is a simple and reliable way to mount your smartphone on the handlebars or frame of your bike. We used the mount on our cross-country bike tour and it was really helpful to have our phones readily available when needed. The mount it-self held up well to being used daily repetitive stretching of the rubber didn’t seem to deteriorate the material over time.

For the most part, it is easy to use your phone while mounted to the Handleband, however, the rubber can get in the way sometimes and need to be pushed out of the way to use the entire touch screen.

We found the bottle opener functionally un-necessary and awkward to use. I personally would take the weight savings and would prefer to lose the heavy aluminum hook.

Overall, this is a great way to mount your phone to your handlebars. The mount is a little large and heavy due to the minimally useful bottle opener, but otherwise it functions as needed and held up well to being used day in and day out.
