Question about Gimbals and Mountain biking

Hello

One of my main uses for my GoPro will be moutain biking. The type of stuff I do are tracks with rough terrain and jumps

 

I have not had time to gopro my rides with my test strap yet, but I am thinking already theres going to be alot of shakyness

 

I know you can get these stablizers called gimbals. Question is I am not sure which one to get to be able to wear + use just in my hand

 

Theres this one I first saw:

https://www.amazon.com/FY-FEIYUTECH-G6-EACHSHOT-Tripod/dp/B07CJZZCH8

 

But then theres this "wearable" one:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011YNWKEA/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9...

 

Can I get the wearable one and then attach a stick under it or handle later? Not sure ...

 

obviously these are already expensive so I dont want to buy both if I dont need to

 

also how do I change my username from hardcliff to something I want? lol

Re: Question about Gimbals and Mountain biking

For mountain biking and use with the Hero6, the wearable Feiyu Tech is the WG2, not WG. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073P1V1CK/ref=psdc_196573011_t2_B011YNWKEA

It's a good solution for chest mounted footage. You can use a stick, like the Handler or El Grande to use it as a hand held mount if you wish.

El Grande: https://shop.gopro.com/mounts/el-grande-38in-extension-pole/AGXTS-001.html

Personally, I like the stabilization of the Karma Grip. Combined with the Extension Cable, Chesty, and J-Hook or Swivel Mount and you get an outstanding hand held or wearable stabilizer.
