THE SITUATION: Keeping your smartphone secure on your bike ride is one thing. Actually being able to use it for GPS or music while on your ride is even better.

A SOLUTION: Satechi’s RideMate Waterproof case provides both protection and usability with its IPX6 certified enclosure that stands up to virtually any weather.

The RideMate mounts directly onto bike handlebars with a dual-lock design that is secure without damaging the mounting surface. Its touch-sensitive screen won’t leave you struggling to operate your phone while riding, and the mount has an adjustable screen orientation for both portrait and landscape modes.

THE DETAILS: The case is designed with a clear back window that allows users to take pictures and videos while the phone is mounted. It also includes a removable waterproof pouch for additional protection from the elements. It is compatible with most smartphones, including the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5.

PRICE: $49.99.
