Thinking of getting a helmet Cam for my road trips. Last week I was behind a drunk/drugged out character that ran a few people off onto the shoulder. Wish I had it on tape.

It will be for mostly road/single track riding and an occasional Moto ride. Ease of operation would be key for my lack of computer skills. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated to help me make my purchase.

On a road bike, GPs can grab a lot of wind and it can be annoying at times. I prefer the bullet kind on a road bike.

Per Contour website, they are out of stock of 2 of their 3 models. And I can’t figure out if they are selling their 4K model.

FWIW I bought an ACTIVEON CX on Amazon this year for $60 or so and it’s great. Just us d it on a family ski trip so far but pretty happy with it.

I run the 50 buck Vivitars in the dirt.
Not the same one but similar. For the road, I dont like the bigger(And Flat) Go pro types. They catch a lot of wind and tug on the helmet.

I've heard the Active on is pretty good and for the money, how bad can it be right?

Asimo is this vivatar the low profile model for the road? I never thought if that but I do get up to oretty high speeds once n awhile and I don’t want the helmet to be jerking all around. And the low one would also be okay for the occasional Moto I would imagine

Thanks for all the input guys. Would rather get reviews from you guys instead of who knows who on the websites

No, I run those in the dirt. On the road I prefer the bullet style by contour and others.

Ive been looking at this..and the new 3.
