Default Re: Italians master rear-view helmet technology

I wonder if that new Italian helmet technology will allow me to look back in time, so I won’t buy that slightly used iron barreled DKW back in ‘76. Six gears and twelve neutrals.



But seriously, that technology would be great, considering I canÂ’t see anything, except my armpits, out of the mirrors anyway.



Remember the Visor-Vu, marketed my Malcolm Smith back in the 70Â’s?

If the technology works, I'm all over it. Probably best to let this concept mature and get support from more than one manufacturer.

You can get a mirror that will stick on your helmet at any bicycle shop. For less than a jillion dollars.



Too bad neither of the links work.

Default Blog link is fixed

Looks like a decent design, but I can't help but think it would be distracting.

I think it depends on how far down the mirror above your eyes hits, and how you wear a helmet.

My bigest concern would be lights behind you at night, I did not see any means to "dim" the light. Nothing ruins a night ride like blindness due to lights in the eyes.

Does the system include a target designator as an option?
