Rear View Motorcycle Helmet
January 19, 2011 3 Comments
A rear-end collision in a cage isn’t pretty, but on a motorcycle it’s pretty unsightly. And this is one concern I have waiting at a busy intersection, with traffic all around me. Which is 75% of the time in Southern California.
So the idea of a rear-view motorcycle helmet sounds like a good idea, if it works.
Apparently, Reevu is the company that has figured out how to make it work. They have a slick-looking helmet called the MSX1 that’s getting favorable reviews.
I haven’t seen one yet, and I have a few questions about its utility. But I’m interested. If you’ve converted to one, I’d like to hear from you. Here are a few questions:
- How does it handle bright headlights behind you at night?
- Are you tempted to rely excessively and dangerously on it?
- What is its greatest advantage?
- Are you satisfied with the other safety features of this helmet?
- How is focus handled for people who require reading glasses?
