That's pretty damn cool

I wonder if it works for all riding positions or whether adjustments can be made to suit your head position on your bike

Hm... Maybe I'll put off getting a new helmet for a bit longer... I guess it depends on two things: whether they fit me properly and how long we have to wait before they hit the US...

wow, thats a good idea. I don't know how it would look in a corner though, think it might make you a little dizzy. Depends on how much you can actually see behind you though. I'd love to try one of those out when they hit the market though

I would think that you will just see your gas tank in the conners and speed hump in the full tuck .... I think its cool but personally I think it might be too distracting. ...just my .02 c

That helmet definitely looks like it's worth a try. Good idea if nothing else.

interesting idea, but it needs to be more wider. With the helmet on u still have a blind spot (the sides).

The patented multiple mirror system that is fitted within every Reevu bicycle helmet is a unique achievement of creative thinking and technical excellence. The mirror system is manufactured from a reflective polycarbonate material rather than glass. Unlike glass, this material is almost impossible to break and is lighter, providing additional safety and comfort to the wearer.
Wow! What a novel and original idea. I would buy this, although I think it would take my brain a little bit to get used to the two images. Anyone know how much 220 pounds is in dollars? Be cool if they had one at the San Mateo Show in November. Is this product currently available or in the process of being brought to market. I was also thinking of investing in a new helmet in the nearby future. Anything that gives more safety gets a

Helmet Mirror

Has anyone designed a helmet mirror for motorcycles? Can't find any online. Why not? Most sportbikes have decent looking mirrors these days. Why not translate that sort of aesthetic styling into something small & aerodynamic that doesn't make the user look like an idiot?

I guess there's probably a bunch of reasons it may not work.
1) Adhesive-type mounting probably wouldn't work, since freeway air would most likely tear it off your head.
2) Nobody wants to mount gadgets to their Arai using wood screws.
3) Even if it stayed mounted, it would be likely to howl in the wind and create drag on one side of your head.
4) Your helmet would no longer fit in a helmet bag, and you'd probably end up accidentally bumping it into something and breaking it off.
5) You might get confused whilst trying to watch shit behind you and crash.

...So would somebody please design one already? I think the motorcycle community has waited far too long.

Thanks.
