Shock Mounts
for Slip-on Windshields

Rycote has designed the INV-6 HEAVY and INV-7HG MKIII shock mounts for use with slip-on windshields. Ideal for use with Super-Softie, Classic-Softie and BBG Windshield models, these robust shock mounts provide excellent isolation for boom pole and stand mounting applications.

The INV-7HG MKIII is one of our most popular InVision Broadcast & Film shock mounts.
