GoPro Hero 6: Zero Protection for front Lens Cover; Shatters in an Instant

Get GoPro Hero 6 at B&H Photo.

Very first usage, I dropped it onto pavement. It landed perfectly square on the front lens area, cracking the cover glass.

I do not understand why zero protection to the front—absolutely nothing but maybe 0.5mm of cheap plastic—no rubber bumper or nothin'.

Isn’t it a rough-and-tumble sports video camera?! Alas today’s videos are flawed; I shot them anyway on a very fast descent of Rock Creek from Mosquito Flat.

I won the Eastern Sierra double, and in under 3 days I have had complete recovery, so I did a 4800 foot climb today. Below, from today’s ride, my Team OWC (MacSales.com) sponsorship bike and wheels, which still needs OWC decals. The Moots Vamoots RSL + Lightweight Meilenstein wheels combo rides like a dream—I was able to do up to 50 mph on the descent and the bike tracks like it is on rails—feels so safe and sturdy compared to the prior bike, just awesome. And it’s even more comfortable for doubles than the old one (for sale).
