Rear View Motorcycle Helmet

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:

  1. How does it handle bright headlights behind you at night?
  2. Are you tempted to rely excessively and dangerously on it?
  3. What is its greatest advantage?
  4. Are you satisfied with the other safety features of this helmet?
  5. How is focus handled for people who require reading glasses?

I like the concept. For a good YouTube review of this innovative design in helmets, click here. For the company’s website, click here.

    A rear view helmet? Does that mean you will have eyes in the back of your head?
