Vibration absorbers: what are they and what do they do?

If you're a motorcycle enthusiast, you know how crucial riding comfort can be, especially on long journeys. The purr of the engine beneath your feet is undoubtedly one of the most satisfying sensations for any motorcyclist, but it's also the source of various types of vibration which, over time, can damage a smartphone resting on a phone holder on your bike.
That's where vibration absorbers come in. These clever devices, also known as vibration absorbers, are designed to dampen unwanted vibrations, protecting your phone in the process.
In this article, we'll take a closer look at motorcycle vibration absorbers. We'll discuss what they are, why they're essential for every biker and how they work. Whether you're a seasoned biker or a two-wheeled novice, this guide will help you understand the importance of vibration absorbers for a more comfortable and safe riding experience for your smartphone.

What is a vibration absorber?

A vibration absorber, also known as a vibration damper, is a device designed to attenuate or eliminate unwanted vibrations in a system. In the world of motorcycles, vibrations are generally caused by the engine and can be transferred to the handlebars and frame of the motorcycle, affecting the rider's ride and comfort. When using a phone mount, these vibrations can also have an impact on your smartphone, disrupting the display or, in the long term, damaging components such as your camera.
The Tigra Sport vibration absorber works by means of a pneumatic suspension, reducing the amount of energy that reaches the phone holder. This is an essential element in protecting your smartphone when using a phone mount on your motorcycle. The smartphone remains stable on the mount, with a touchscreen that's easy to use.
At Tigra Sport, we have vibration absorbers specially designed for use with our motorcycle phone mounts, offering optimum protection for your device while enhancing your riding comfort. The Tigra Sport vibration absorber attaches to Fitclic Neo motorcycle handlebar mounts, trigger guard screws and rearview mirrors.

Why use a motorcycle vibration absorber?

Using a vibration absorber on a motorcycle offers a variety of benefits that improve the longevity of your phone. Here's why it's an essential accessory:

  • Protecting your phone: When you attach your smartphone to a motorcycle mount, it's exposed to the vibrations of the machine. This can disrupt the display and, in some cases, damage internal components. A vibration absorber effectively reduces the impact of these vibrations on your phone, protecting it from possible damage.
  • Improved safety: Using a vibration absorber also increases driving safety. By minimizing vibrations on your phone, it ensures clearer reading of your navigation or tracking applications.

In this way, a vibration absorber plays a crucial role in enhancing the driving experience. Not only does it ensure a more comfortable and safer ride, but it also contributes to the protection and durability of your phone and its mount. At Tigra Sport, we offer a high-quality vibration absorber, designed to be perfectly compatible with our motorcycle phone mounts and cases for iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, OnePlus, Huawei and Google Pixel.
