  • ball joint
  • cheap price

Price €18.00


The Enoneo clamp bracket made of stable aluminum is firmly attached to the handlebars with two screws. What is good against thieves could at least be visually annoying when driving without a cell phone. The viewing angle on the display can be optimally aligned via a ball joint. The retaining clips enclose the phone securely. In connection with thick cases, however, the holder becomes too narrow. Connections and control buttons remain accessible. In the test, the cell phone holder from Enoneo received 28 out of 40 points and thus a grade of 2.2 (good).

The test results at a glance

The expensive piece has to be stable, of course. And please also easy to read, without reflections. The mount shouldn’t be too expensive either. Optional weather protection and maybe a charging option, otherwise the battery will quickly run out. The problem with water protection has been resolved for most modern smartphones – the cell phone manufacturers have taken care of that.

Mobile phone holders for the bike in the test: the results


Special outdoor smartphones still have their place. The internal components are also trimmed for higher loads. If the mobile phone wobbles, it is difficult to read. Therefore, the distance between the handlebars and the cell phone should be as small as possible – long lever arms increase the vibrations.

Basically, when choosing the right bicycle cell phone holder: it is better to rely on systems with a custom-fit case than on a universal holder. You should avoid charging on the go if possible, unless it works wirelessly using the Qi standard. Because the tiny plug connections are not designed for the constant wobbling on the bike.
