Vibration absorption

Test protocol

As a good scientist, we detail here why we managed to prove that our mount for motorcycle prevented damage to your optical stabilizer (camera of the smartphone) by absorbing better than its direct competitors the engine and road vibrations.

Materials needed:

- Shapeheart XL Motorcycle mount
- Rigid Motorcycle mount from a competing brand
- Handlebars
- Smartphone: OnePlus 6Pro
- Application: Physic Toolbox Suite (to retrieve accelerometer data)
- Drop box
- to generate the 40Hz

All you have to do is put the smartphone in one of the devices, attach the handlebars to the subwoofer, start the acquisition and turn up the sound :)


On average and along all axes of the accelerometer, we calculated the power transmitted by the vibrations to smartphone ( RMS= Root Mean Square).

Conclusion: along all axes, the mount Shapeheart absorbs the vibrations of the engine compared to a rigid mount by 47% on average.

A mount Shapeheart will absorb half of the vibrations emitted by the engine from your motorcycle engine to your smartphone.

These vibrations are what cause the degradation of the optical/electronic components that are used to take pictures on a smartphone.


Well, all the components are made to absorb vibrations, unlike a mount where the connection is rigid. It is as if your smartphone is directly connected to your motorcycle engine.

The differences of the Shapeheart motorcycle mount:

The fabric sleeve(vs. a hard case) Thesilicone strap(vs. a metal/plastic mount)The dock base which is made of silicone(vs. a plastic/metal adapter)

We are also often asked the question, whether the mount smartphone Shapeheart will break the stabilizer of the smartphone.
So we decided to answer it in a new article available right here.

Attention! Contrary to our sleeves, the adhesive steel plate does not fully protect from engine and road vibrations. The 2 wheels listed on the product page can damage the optical stabilizer of your smartphone by vibrations.
