Last week, GoPro took the wraps off three new high-end products. While GoPro fans still have some waiting to do for the Hero 5, it’s good to see these new innovations from the company. All three products, two mounts and a backpack, complement each other nicely, but the headliner is definitely the pack.
Called the Seeker, it is GoPro’s first backpack, and directly competes the best bags produced by third parties. The $170 bag features a large, 16-liter capacity with a dedicated camera compartment that securely stows five GoPros with underwater housings. The pack features an integrated shoulder strap and chest mounts for recording on the move, and also allows for a three-way pole to be mounted for over-the-shoulder shots. Like other action camera packs, the Seeker also includes room for a two-liter water reservoir.
The Pro Handlebar / Seatpost / Pole Mount is a redesigned and upgraded version of the original handlebar mount. At $60, it is designed for serious cyclists and mountain bikers. It features a lightweight aluminum construction and new, rotating camera mount that offers 360-degree freedom for locking in the perfect camera angle. It is the most flexible handlebar mount on the market, according to GoPro.
The Pro Handlebar / Seatpost / Pole Mount (as its rather long name would suggest) is suitable for a wide range of applications outside of cycling, as well. It can be mounted to any pole ranging in diameter from 22.2mm to 35mm. In GoPro’s product video, for example, it’s put to use shooting some creative selfies of a whitewater rafter from the perspective of the paddle.
In addition, the new Seat Rail Mount keeps a GoPro camera snugly mounted underneath a bike saddle. The bespoke, under-slung design leaves room on the seat post itself for a bike light (or, hey, another GoPro). It’s built to fit most two-rail saddles and provides an over-the-tire, rear-facing angle. When used with the GoPro Session, it also makes for a perfectly centered shot.
The new backpack and mounts are available now.
