RigMount XL Camera Gimbal Mount
RigMount XL is a robust mounting platform designed for mounting brushless gimbals. This configuration builds on the popularity of our RigMount X magnetic mount. Brushless gimbals have quickly become a regular part of on-location production and the RigMount XL provides a quick and secure way to get dynamic shots from vehicles.
The RigMount XL provides a wide “stance” which is ideal for the higher center of gravity associated when mounting a gimbal. The wider stance also helps distribute the weight of the gimbal and camera over a greater area so flex in body-panels is not an issue. This wider stance is also ideal for mounting larger camera rigs without a gimbal. Parts are precision machined from 6061 aluminum and machined to a tolerance of .001″.
A gimbal mounting adapter plate is not included with this configuration. Depending on the type of gimbal you have different mounting adapters are available. RigWheels is making a mounting adapter for the Ronin M that will be available in September available pre-order here.
As will all RigWheels products, there are many different ways you
can configure components depending on the shot you’re trying to get and the surface you’re mounting to. The RigMount XL shares some of the same components with our other mounting and dolly products so if you already own a system you may be able to upgrade to this configuration and vise versa, if you purchase this mount you will have the ability to upgrade to add more functionality.
Pictured is the standard configuration using 8 of our RigMount Magnetic Mounts. The magnets are rubber coated to protect the mounting surface. Each of the magnets provides up to 50lb of pulling force. To help adapt to curves in the body panels of a car magnets can be screwed in/out of the the arms. Magnets can be added or removed to provide the strength necessary for your application. You can use up to 20 magnets with the mounting holes in the RigPlate and Arms (up to 1000lb of pulling force).
For occasions where suction mounting is necessary, 8 of our industrial grade A-Cups provide an excellent suction option. Suction mounting can take more time to rig than our magnetics and needs to be more closely monitored to ensure that suction is maintained however, 8 cups in this configuration provide excellent redundancy.

Sidecar - Hostess Tray
The Sidecar / Hostess Tray configuration is one of our favorites to get some great classic angles. Because the sides of vehicles generally have a lot of curves and contours our A-Cup suction cups are recommended for this setup because they can conform the the curves. When possible magnets are preferred because of the more solid connection.
