Full Review: Morsa Cycling Mount

Are you short on handlebar space, specifically in the coveted center spot? Do you wish you had a cleaner mounting system or a more modular one for all your devices? This 54g one-armed carbon reinforced nylon mount can hold pretty much all common devices — and do it securely.

The mounting bolt comes with a precision machined washer.

What’s cool about this mount is it’s modular. You buy an arm where you can hang attachments and you can decide exactly where to locate the devices. The arm costs $20, attachments are $10 each. The mount is designed to hold two devices securely, but given the right devices that are not too heavy, we were able to hang three.

The design and construction is awesome. Attachments can be hung on either side and they can slide forward and backward for optimum position. Some attachments can tilt up and down and some are secured by an oval connector so it can’t rotate. The nylon is reinforced with carbon for strength, and the bolt interfaces are reinforced with shaped washers and embedded nuts.

All the mounts can be rotated for the optimum angle for viewing, lighting or video recording. There is a bevy of options available for mounting a device from the left, right bottom or top.
