While an increasing number of mountain bikers are shooting first-person cycling videos using helmet-mounted actioncams, attaching such a camera to one’s helmet can still be a rather tricky, inexact process. That’s why gear company Kali Protectives created the AMARA CAM helmet – it features a built-in mounting point, that accepts a number of popular actioncams and headlamps.

The mount itself is basically just a simple plastic rail, located on top of the helmet. Camera and headlamp attachments (which are included) slide on and off of that rail, and can be tightened down when in use. These attachments work with cameras such as the GoPro HERO, and with headlamps from manufacturers including NiteRider, Maglite, and Light and Motion.

The all-mountain helmet features the usual polycarbonate shell, which is bonded to an EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam liner. Since it doesn’t need to allow for camera-mounting straps being threaded through its vents, the helmet is also able to offer a nice extra – an interior layer of insect netting.

Buyers have a choice of three sizes, and five color/graphics combos. Prices range from about US$89 to $100.

For the price, what are they made from, Carbon fiber?

I already have bike lights on my helmet. I made it myself. The advantage is that the helmet is left indoors when not in use.
