Choosing the Best 360 Camera for Cyclists and Motorbikes

The best 360 camera for cyclists and motorbikes is a tough question. If you’re looking to buy one, then this blog post will give you all the information that you need in order to make an informed decision about which one is right for your needs. We’ll discuss what kind of cyclist or motorbike rider each camera might be most useful for, as well as what features are important when it comes to choosing the right device.

The Best of the Best: GoPro Max

The GoPro Max is a new and improved camera. It takes very good videos and does not shake them up if you go fast or take sharp turns.

The GoPro Max is the best 360 camera for your motorbike. It has two modes: 360 modes and Hero Mode. 360 mode captures everything around you, while Hero Mode only uses one lens but has the same awesome stabilization. The Global Lock feature is perfect for bikes and can be used to make amazing videos.

The Max is a camera that can take 360 videos. It is easy to use for people who don’t know-how. You can edit the video on your phone, but if you want to do more advanced editing, you will need a different program like Premiere Pro.

Insta360 One X

The best 360 camera for bikes. The Insta360 One X’s stabilization is the best of 360 cameras. It can withstand any knocks and vibrations your travels may cause. You can capture fine details at 5.7K video quality.

The 360 cameras will not capture video in the same quality as other action cameras. However, the One X is close. The One X comes with a variety of mounts and accessories that can be attached to your helmet or bike. In fact, the One X even has a Bike Bundle that includes everything you need.

You can also create cinematic videos with One X’s amazing app. It allows you to create time-lapses and panoramas in just a few seconds. One X’s drawback is its inability to withstand water or weather. However, you can purchase a waterproof case. The video quality may be slightly affected by this case, so it is not the best solution.

The One X 360 camera is one of the most affordable. There are many people using it so it’s easy to find tutorials and help online. However, you will likely be able to use it in about 30 minutes. The One X can be purchased from their website. If you, you will receive a free invisible selfie stick.

Garmin VIRB 360

The VIRB 360 is the first camera that can be used for anything. It is water, dust, and shockproof. The camera has different lenses. Garmin makes good cameras and they put all their experience into this one. The best thing about this camera is how it keeps track of everything you do. You can see how fast you are going or how high you are instead of just guessing.

The stabilization is not as good as the One X but the VIRB makes up for this by being tough. It is designed to protect it from being damaged easily. The VIRB can shoot 360 videos so it’s better for VR than most other cameras would be in that situation. This camera and other cameras like the One X and Rylo can make 360 videos. They both do this by editing the videos afterward.

The data collected by these six sensors can then be seen as an overlay on the video. This provides a kind of heads-up display for your videos. Garmin called it G-Metrix and this is one reason why Motocross chose Garmin as their supplier of cameras. The VIRB has 6-axis stabilization technology. It makes videos smooth even when you are doing hard things like jumps or turns. You can see this in the video of a motocross race.

The video resolution is high at 5.7K but the quality isn’t as good as some other cameras on this list. On a clear day, you probably wouldn’t notice much difference anyway. The VIRB 360 is the most expensive camera on this list, and it may be because of its design and how many sensors it has.

Insta360 One R

This modular 360 camera is the best option for recording bike shots. This is a great option for many because it can record both high-quality 360 videos and 5K “normal” videos.

You can quickly take apart the camera and plug in a new lens using the modular device. There are currently three lenses on offer: a 360 lens; a 4K action lens; and a high-quality 1-inch sensors lens.

The One R camera is for you if you want to take 360 videos but also GoPro Hero-quality shots, then this is the camera for your needs. The One R also has the best camera stabilization and an array of accessories, frames rates, and shooting options.

Insta360 One R Bike Mounted

If the GoPro Max seems a bit limited to you, then the One R is a better option. You will need to take off the camera every time you want to switch between 360 and non 360 videos, but this can be frustrating.


The Rylo is a small, easy-to-use camera that has good technology for stabilization. It is like the Insta360 One X because it has an app that lets you edit your 360 videos. You can turn it into a flat video and make things smooth and tiny planets.


The video resolution is the highest yet and it has a stabilizer. It can be mounted to any GoPro mount.

The Best Tiny 360 Camera for Cyclists and Motorbikes: Insta360 GO 2

The Insta360 Go 2 camera is small and easy to mount. It can also capture high-quality stabilized video. The Insta360Go successor has all the advantages of the original, but also fixes some of the kinks and adds many important features. The case is the focal point of most new Insta360 Go 2 features. The original Insta360 Go case was only for charging an iPhone and plugging it into the computer.

The second-generation model is completely different. It features buttons and a mini screen for setting the camera’s mode. The flip-open lid can be used as a holder. It even comes with legs that can be used as a tripod. The Insta360 Go 2 is lacking in innovation regarding its form factor but it makes up for this with clever additions and dramatic usability improvements.


If you’re looking for a 360 camera that is easy to use and captures all the action, then the GoPro Max is your best bet. With its ease of operation, compact design, and compatibility with most mounts (including bike handlebars), this could be one of the few cameras on our list that provides an experience as close as possible to being in-person at the event. We hope we have answered any questions about how it works or if it will work well for cycling or motorbike events. What do you think? Have you tried out other options yet? Are there features missing from this model that would make it better for cyclists/motorbikers?
