Insta360's second micro-size Go camera offers improved image quality and an innovative remote control charging case, similar to the Apple Airpods case. This improves usability for shooting videos beyond 30-second social clips. It's not for everyone, but the Insta360 Go 2 is perfect for vlogs or as a second-action camera that you can take virtually everywhere. But is it good enough for creating mountain biking videos?

At the end of the day if you are looking for an unobtrusive camera to capture your rides the GO 2 is worth a look. Its wearable usability and 'lifestyle' angle is the true selling point. If using mainly for biking and action videos, it's not a great solution. The phone is also a better tool for quick videos and uploads.

But if one wants an unobtrusive camera that is wearable, mounts anywhere, and is ready for action, the Insta360 Go 2 is a viable solution. The good news is Insta360 has an impressive array of cameras that will fit the needs of most video creators
