Must Watch: Shimano Cam Captures Exclusive POV Footage, Takes You Inside the Sprint to the Finish

The next time someone tells you road biking is about as exciting as watching cars turning left, show them this video captured on the new Shimano Action Cam.

That was fantastic. I hope there is more of these to come.

Put camera’s on all pro bikes please! Make bike racing more fun to watch like rally car racing!

is that a go pro? or does shimano have their own set of cams?

Doge- the video was “captured on the new Shimano Action Cam,” as the single sentence that comprises this article states.

Just what I need…a SAC on my handlebar.

Here’s a better version of this (split screen with the TV coverage) done by my buddy at In The Crosshairs.

Doge, Not Doge, and the rest of the faithful, we just wanted you to know that those Shimano cameras are being held on the Tour of California riders bikes by K-EDGE GOBIG Mounts. Shimano cameras are GoPro mount compatible and the K-EDGE Mounts smooth out the video because there is zero movement from the mount. That’s it.

K-Edge is rock solid!

As recently as last year a UCI official was giving a racer crap about wearing a GoPro. Has the UCI changed their tune – is this now OK – or was this a renegade video?

@slippyfish, UCI has decided to do a one time exception for ToCal. They want to see how the public reacts to it. I think that this will make TV more interesting, especially when they start move this to live streaming.

Awesome video. I’m all for it. A buddy of mine works over at Shimano and I’ve ‘played’ with a demo version. Very cool and IMHO much better than a GoPro.

nice, thank you.
