Velocity Clip – An iOS Accessory Made for Action

Velocity Clip is the creation of David Kephart and Sven Duerigen, both California natives. Kephart came up with the initial idea while snowboarding in Tahoe. Originally conceptualized as an iPhone point-of-view case, Kephart realized the potential such a product would have. He got Duerigen, a fellow outdoorsman and businessman, to come up with the eventual process and marketing plan 

The Velocity Clip’s appeal lies in two important elements. First, it is a total "three-in-one" professional camera mount that comes with attachments for helmets, the chest, as well as hard surfaces. Each piece in the package is designed for maximum freedom of movement, great point-of-view shooting, and high durability. For example, each mount has an adjustable swivel to account for every shooting angle possible. The Velocity Clip itself is made with extreme grip rubber that will hold your device firm at speeds as high as 150 mph. It can accommodate any device, from a smartphone to a compact digital camera. It also can hold devices in their respective waterproof cases.

The second element to Velocity Clip’s appeal lies in its extremely affordability. Priced at $34.99, it is less than all of the available mounts on the market. For the budding videographer or the professional looking for alternatives, this is a steal. In addition, the three accessory mounts offered all check in under $30. The Velocity Clip has sparked a great deal of interest, and its Kickstarter campaign is a key indicator. In 35 days, it met its earning goal with 50 backers and a few days to spare.

For those who want total freedom to shoot action video and don’t want to break the bank to do so, Velocity Clip could be a new favorite. Find out more at or on Facebook at
