â€œOur design team has worked closely with experts and athletes throughout the R&D process to create stronger, more reliable mounting accessories for Drift cameras. Our goal was to eliminate chatter and slippage in our mounting systems so that they would meet the needs of users in high action sports,â€ said Milo Murphy of Drift’s Design Team. â€œWe have fine-tuned the line by adding features such as the new ratcheted washer system for a more flush, secure fit.
