RaceBone: Light and Fast
RaceBone is the latest upgrade of the original RaceBone. New features are improved stiffness and an 1/8th turn engagement. At 9 grams RaceBone is the lightest Ogee forward mount for your Garmin Edge 200, 500, 510, 800 and 810 available. It is also the highest performance mount in the lineup, fully optimized for weight reduction and maximum stability, while allowing for one handed “on the fly” view angle adjustment.
Mounting your Garmin forward of the handlebar gives you better access for viewing your data at a glance and reduces the risk of incidental crash damage. With aerodynamically smooth profile supporting arms optimized across stiffness and weight, RaceBone positions your Garmin on the centerline of the stem and below the top of your handlebar, reducing frontal area and additional wind resistance.
RaceBone can be adjusted to fit all diameter handlebars, but is optimized for 31.8 mm. It also will accommodate alternative shaped profiles.
After placing your order, you will receive the printed part from Shapeways. RaceBone requires two o-rings and two zip ties for attachment, not included from Shapeways. Look for 3/4" O.D., 9/16" I.D. and 3/32" thickness o-rings (AS568-113) in the plumbing aisle of your local hardware store or online.
Attaching the Race Bone
Securing the mount is accomplished by using two standard zip ties in conjunction with captured AS568-113 o-rings (see images). It is important to tighten the zip ties to the "last click" possible for secure positioning of the mount. The o-rings provide the necessary friction and compression for a solid fit.
