There is nothing more exhilarating then the thrill of riding 85 miles per hour across rough terrain on a motocross bike, enjoying the sound of your engine roaring. Trying to capture and share these moments of utter bliss on the other hand, is usually not as enjoyable, requiring either overly expensive equipment or destroying cheaper handheld HD cameras like the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1010 Camcorder, that just aren’t built for speed and a little destruction.
What any motocross or auto racing fanatic needs is a reliable and exceptional camera to document their moments of glory in style. With that in mind GoPro created the HD Motorsports HERO, a professional grade full HD 1080p video camera that mounts to virtually anything, whether it’s a helmet, motorcycle, car, ATV, jet ski, snowmobile, or boat. GoPro HD Motorsports HERO records extremely stable video, beautifully smooth even at highest speeds and during the most intense races, you won’t find any kind of wobble or shakiness you’d find in other HD cameras.
Included in the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO pack is the HD Hero camera, featuring the industry’s widest angle (170º) and sharpest lens. This truly is a professional grade HD Camera but still manages to have a consumer price tag, despite coming with a massive range of additional accessories included in the pack. You also get a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 2 hours, a waterproof quick release housing, 3 flat and 2 curved adhesive Mounts, 2 quick release buckles, a vertical surface buckle, and USB and HDTV cables. However, our two favourite accessories in the pack are the suction cup mount, perfect for attaching the camera to your car window or bonnet, and the fantastic three-way pivoting side arm assembly that lets you mount the camera on side of a helmet.
We are also huge fans of the amount of destruction the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO is capable of surviving through. It’s quite literally shockproof, bombproof, and waterproof. It can handle anything you throw at it thanks to the highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing on the HD HERO camera. Even if you do trash the camera in a massive crash, replacement parts are really cheap and it’s built to be fixed very easily. The GoPro HD Motorsports HERO pack will set you up to start documenting your epic racing moments, be they motocross, hot rod, trucks, boats, or snowmobiles. Whatever you’re into, if it has an engine and you like to drive fast the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO is the camera for you. Buying one today will make watching your own video footage almost as exhilarating as the moment itself.
