Reevu MSX1 Helmet High Visibility The world's first rear-view helmet! Reevu has been the industry leader in rear view technology with their patented mirror system, manufactured from a reflective polycarbonate material rather than glass! The polycarbonate material is almost impossible to break, weighs less than glass and provides additional safety and comfort to the rider. The mirror system essentially bends the light around the shell of the helmet, offering a clear view of what's behind. The Reevu System works just like a car's rear view mirror offering awareness of the road ahead and behind without making a conscious effort as both are simultaneously in your field of view. Features Patented rear-view technology Tri-composite carbon fibreglass, Kevlar and synthetic hi-tenacity advanced fibre shell Fully removable and washable liner Anti-fog face shield The Reevu Mobility Program gives the rider an opportunity to replace their Reevu helmet that has been damaged in a crash with a new one at just 1/2 of the price

I've been waiting to get a replacement for my 2009 HJC CL-SP for a while, so decided to pull the trigger on the REEVU MSX1.
First off, I absolutely LOVE the mirror. I've had it for 2 weeks or so and it took a couple of rides for me to get really comfortable with it. But now I can't imagine riding without it.
I've heard others ask why you need it. Basically, I use the mirror how you'd use the center/rearview mirror in a car. It's great for keeping an eye out for where other traffic is with just a quick glance. Just like the center mirror in the car, you still need to use the side mirrors and turn your head (especially when changing lanes). However, it's a handy tool to let you get info about your surroundings quickly.
Now, the rest of the helmet is only ok. The mirror is actually not quite aligned on my helmet. It's a degree or so off left, so I need to turn my head just a degree or so to the left in order to see "straight back". Given the wide angle of view, it's not a big deal, but it's a bit of an annoyance.
Others have commented that the helmet is hot, and I concur. On a summers day in Northern California, when I put the helmet on with my glasses or sunglasses, my breath will start fogging up the glasses (this isn't a problem while moving obviously). Also, I like the ratcheting buckle mechanism, but the buckle is too close to my adams apple, so it rubs a bit.
Lastly, the chin bar seems awfully close so my chin just barely fits without touching the chin bar. If it were half a centimeter farther towards the tip of my chin, it'd be fine.
All in all, I love the helmet even through its shortcomings. The mirror really is amazing. I mentioned the center/rearview mirror in a car, and that's how I feel now when riding it. It's similar to driving a car without a center/rearview mirror and driving a car with one.
