Benchracing is one of the greatest parts of riding. We can spend as many hours talking about what happened on the track as we spend riding the track. What if you could record your day of riding? That would be great, but video equipment can get expensive. All forms of motorsports have been using some type of race-cam. In cars, it’s an in-car camera or a bumper cam; or, as in roadracing, a swingarm cam and even an under-the-rear-fender cam. These cameras can easily run in the tens of thousands of dollars. The helmet cam used for our “Dirt Rider Adventures” television show cost more than $1200. A company called CyberSpeed has solved this with a new helmet camera called the R Cam.With this helmet cam, you can now prove to your buddy that you really did jump that huge double. Other than a camcorder, it comes with everything to do the job. The kit includes a battery pack (eight AA batteries required), waterproof cables and a low-light camera with 380 scan lines of resolution. This camera is housed in an extremely compacted aluminum shell and is very durable, and it only weighs about a pound. We used a Sony GVD 900 to record, and with sound, the picture turned out great. CyberSpeed also has other accessories to mount the camera on handlebars or just about any other place you can think of. This camera is great. The helmet-mounted system is $299.99, and the hard-mounted system is $349.99.
