Reevu Rear-View Motorcycle Helmet
Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Reevu helmets reflect an image around the shape of the head within the outer shell casing to achieve a rear-view for motorcyclists.
Reevu has developed a rear-view motorcycle helmet that uses a reflective polycarbonate plate to broadcast an image of what’s behind the rider into the field of view. According to the company’s website, “the optical device ‘bends light’ around the shape of the head all within the outer shell casing,” displaying it on a thin mirror that sits just above eye level. Reevu
claims that “when you wear a Reevu Motorbike helmet your view of the road is not affected in any way” and that “you see the road behind you with your peripheral vision.” The Vision system is said to react as a crumple zone in the case of an accident, and is claimed to displace the impact across the internal construction of the helmet. The company also claims that pillion passengers “tend not to interfere with the rear view of the front rider,” and that “the helmet has a series of reflective surfaces that limit the intensity of light hitting the front reflective surface.”
