Rokform is proud to return as sponsor of the 2017 Over the Hump Mountain Bike Race Series. Since 2009, the 12-race bike series has taken place in locations around Orange County - right in our backyard! The series held its season opener for the 2017 season on Tuesday, May 9 and draws up to 600 racers every week. For every race of the series, we'll be joining the fun with a booth set up to say hello to riders and their families.
As the OTH community has grown, new additions continue to make the event even more fun for the entire family. Even if you aren't competing, there's always tons to do and a great community of people to hang out with. Notes Over The Hump's mission: "This is a community for fun and camaraderie, around the sport of mountain biking." This year, OTH is bringing back post race fun, like Wheel Bowling, Drag Race, and Last Rider Standing.
OTH is designed to be a fun, relaxed event for everyone. Our race course has been designed to challenge all levels of riders, and give you a great place to experience the fun and excitement of mountain bike racing. Our beautiful course offers a variety of scenic terrain with views of Irvine Lake and Santa Ana Mountains. Weave through the pine trees above the lake to single track in the cottonwoods.

Why Rokform Loves OTH
Over the Hump is a challenging, but recreational race. As the website notes, be ready to HAVE FUN. Rokform’s team has had tons of fun at OTH supporting OC's local mountain bike community since OTH’s inaugural season eight years ago. There’s nothing better than getting to hang out with local riders. We love hearing stories people tell us about using their Rokform Bike Mounts to mount their smartphone securely as they navigate through bumpy trails and challenging terrain.
Have you seen the PRO-LITE before? The PRO-LITE Bike Mount for the iPhone and Galaxy is the lightest, most compact bike mount we have ever made. It works with stems of zero to 10 degrees rise, fitting most modern bikes. The PRO-LITE is made from CNC Machined aluminum and is hand assembled with a durable anodized finish. When you want to use the mount, you just twist and lock using the dual retention mounting system to secure your phone, even on the roughest terrain. It's perfect for both road and trail rides. When it's not mounted on your bike, the magnet and case continue protecting your phone from drops and shocks.
If you’re curious about how it’s made, check out the video we just posted on YouTube about how the PRO-LITE Bike Mount is made. Or, if you're at OTH and see the Rokform table, stop by and say hello! The PRO-LITE Bike Mount is available for purchase at our website here.
