Vholdr ContourHD 1080p Preview

It seems one of the new big things in Mountain Biking is recording the experience. Whether it’s to relive the rush, to learn and improve or vain self-gratification, it’s a lot of fun. Another great trick is to follow your friend down the mountain and suddenly they’ll be interested in seeing your video too!
I’ve been lucky enough to receive a demo (free to use for a few months, then send back and no, we do not get paid to review products) Vholdr ContourHD 1080p to review over the next couple months. The ContourHD 1080p is a self-contained, rechargeable helmet camera that is rugged enough to take along on your mountain biking (and other action sport) exploits. The ContourHD 1080p strikes a great first impression with its clean and clever packaging.

Out of the box the good vibes get just slightly mixed, the goggle strap mount is great!..provided you wear goggles. The other included mounting option is designed for flat surfaces and utilizes double-sided foam tape. Unfortunately my DH lid and XC helmets have no flat surfaces, so it looks like I’ll be recording my exploits with my DH lid and goggles. Vholdr does sell several other mounting options along with other accessories here.

The Mtnbikeriders.com will be bringing along the Vholdr ContourHD 1080p on some of our future exploits, for now, feast on the specs here and check out the video community to see what the Vholdr cameras can do. Keep in mind, the online videos do not do 1080p justice, this is screen filling content that is at home on a 42″+ HD TV. Here’s my first attempt at using the ContourHD and well, I aimed the camera low, but you can still tell this camera is capable of quality footage.

  1. Nice! Man you were flying on the wall! Who was that guy yelling in the beginning…he has a voice that soothes and comforts!

  2. Specs look pretty good. For best riding results I would recommend using the 720p/60. Resolution will be secondary to frame rate to get good motion.

  3. Looked dope when you were passing by all that graffiti. There’s considerably less “warbling” with this camera. Looks good.
