HELMET mirrors are NOT for everyone as they do require some getting used to. It took me at least 2-3 rides before I got used to it. I've been using one since 2003 and do not feel safe without one.
Helmet mirrors do a better job as you can still have a blind spot with the bicycle mounted mirrors - I have my helmet mirror set so I can see my shoulder and the side of my head. This gives me a clear view of traffic behind and to my right. By turning my head 30 degrees to my right, I completely "sweep" to all lanes on my left side.
I've tried this and the Blackburn helmet mirror. This one is definitely better.
- Does not remove (the Blackburn pops off the base so you can remove it offroading, for example. Don't lose it!)
- Shorter arm is stiffer than Blackburn (it's an I-Beam section)
- Adjustment range is better than Blackburn
- Lighter mirror vibrates less than Blackburn
Note: The helmets I have used them on are the Giro Atmos, Giro Animas, Bell Forza II and Bell Phi II

My only issue was that it didn't quite stick to my helmet well. It comes with a Velcro pad and though the Velcro is intensely strong, the adhesive pad that it comes with to adhere with the helmet doesn't want to stay on too much. I eventually had to give it a little extra help with the use of some electrical tape. Luckily my helmet is black and this isn't even noticeable. This is the reason for 4 stars and not 5.
I do like this mirror and it's already saved my butt a few times, I just wish that it came with some the extra sticky pads.
Taking a cue from the other reviewers, I removed the Velcro pad from the mounting bracket, cleaned it and the helmet well, then proceeded to use hot glue to mount the mirror. This, my friends, works great and is quite secure.
It took me a few rides to get used to the mirror; I used to use a bar-end mirror on my road bike. But once I got used to it, it works quite well. This mirror allows me to keep my eyes on the road. It also allows me to view behind me even when I'm standing on the pedals, hammering up hills.
I attached the Velcro part on the outside of my helmet since I have a rounded foam one, and it still works. I noticed there was a review that stated you couldn't take the mirror off the helmet,but it just pops off the Velcro so it is removable.
I was pleasantly surprised. After following the directions in the package and a little bit of trial and error locating of the mounting pad location on my helmet, I removed the backing tape and stuck it on. After two tries and having to gently peel off the foam tape from my helmet I got the mount where I wanted it, and was good to go. As would be expected, it took me a few tries to adjust the mirror and arm so that it was positioned correctly for rearview use, but after setting it and taking off my helmet and checking the position, I can now set the mirror position almost exactly before putting on my helmet. Also, about 2 months ago I got a new helmet, and I was concerned that I was going to have to replace the foam tape when I removed the assembly from my old helmet. No problem. With a little patient peeling I was able to remove the tape with it's glue and mount it on my new helmet where it is attached as permanently as it was to my old helmet.
If you like the idea of having a helmet-mounted rearview mirror, I would definitely recommend this one for you. Once you're used to having one, you won't want to be without one again.

Meh...instructions were vague enough that I got this in the wrong spot on my helmet and it fell off. Needs to be on plastic, not foam, I guess. Hopefully superglue will fix it.Published 11 months ago by PrineSwine
