Reevu Rear Vision Helmet Product Overview
Periscopes use Mirrors that allow the observer to view an object without looking directly at it. Without this invention, submarines could not have stayed hidden below the surface.
Rear Vision Mirrors in cars allow the driver to view traffic behind the vehicle.
These helmets do not use a camera. The Reevu helmet uses old fashioned periscope technology to reflect the image.
Instead of using glass to reflect the image, as is the case with a periscope or rear view mirror, these helmets are manufactured using a reflective poly-carbonate material. Poly-carbonate, which is safer than glass and unbreakable, bends the light around the shell of the helmet to provide a clear view of traffic behind the motorcycle.
Motorcycle helmets serve one purpose – to protect. Reevu have taken this concept further, producing the world’s first helmets with an integrated rear view system that helps prevent accidents. A new age in helmets has arrived.
See Your Blind Spot
A Blind Spot in a car is toward the side rear of the vehicle. On a motorcycle the Blind Spot is also behind, and the benefit to us motorcyclists is the warning time provided to avoid rear end accidents.
Now riders can see safely as we do in our cars
The Reevu Helmet is perfect for all riders. Riders with neck and shoulder issues may find relief in using this helmet, if turning the head causes discomfort or pain. While riding a motorcycle you should remember to never ride in another driver’s Blind Spot. Now you can ensure you know who is in your Blind Spot with ease. Simply look up and get a clear view of what is behind you from inside your helmet.
Reevu Science and Safety Standards
The Rear-view system developed by Reevu engineers and Scientists is to overcome the inherent design flaw in helmets, namely to overcome the restriction of the riders peripheral vision.
This technological marvel has required British inventors, European expertise and Italian design to comply with strict International Safety Standards, as putting vision systems into helmets was deemed impossible by industry insiders.
The Reevu team, have collaborated over a number of engineering and scientific disciplines to make that impossibility a reality. The Reevu helmet is now tested and approved to the highest International Standards and the optic part was developed and now acts as a crumple zone due to its unbreakable and load displacing properties.
It has taken over 10 years of research and development to bring the RV MSX1 through the manufacturing process so that Motor sports enthusiasts don’t have to endure the lack of information of what is coming up behind them.
See Forward & Behind
This helmet has a patented optical device in it, which enables the user to see behind similar to a rear-view mirror in a car. The device is located at the top of the opening so you can pick up the view in your periphery or a quick glance up, not blocking your forward view enabling you to see behind while looking straight ahead.
Reevu customers have commented that after a short period of time, they are able to maintain awareness of the road ahead and behind without making a conscious effort. This means no loss of vision of the view ahead when you are looking behind you!
Quite simply, Reevu helmets will transform your riding experience. Having provided motorcycle instruction, even if a student has a Reevu Helmet, I will continue to teach them to check over their shoulders before making any manoeuvres.
This is a genuinely unique helmet, currently only available through exclusive distribution.

Pinlock Anti-fog Visor Technology
Riding with a fogged up helmet visor can be really annoying and dangerous, as it disrupts the rider’s vision and focus on the road.
The fog build-up in a visor can get even thicker and blurrier during cold and rainy weather conditions, making it even more difficult for the rider to see what’s ahead.
Improved Safety with Pinlock Visor Insert.
Flip-Up helmets can be very handy. As a motorcycle instructor, I have found my Flip-Up extremely useful in providing instruction to students. Talking through a chin guard can be muffled, especially when you are trying to compete with the noise of two motorcycle engines. Dave
Driving Instructor’s Favorite – High Visibility MSX1 Reevu Helmet
Reevu Helmets are available in Matt Black – Flip-up
Available in Matt Black – Non Flip-up
Some of my students did not like Flip-Up helmets and chose to use their own helmet (which I was happy to allow). If you don’t really like Flip-Ups, then perhaps this cheaper option would be more suitable.
Available in Gloss Black – Flip-up
They are available in white – Flip-up
And Available in Sporty Designs
For those riders that need a helmet to color coordinate their riding gear, they are also available in a variety of Design Colors.
Now you will be able to see behind you
When you wear a Reevu helmet, your view ahead is not affected in any way. The view behind, however, is so dramatically transformed – you can see the trail behind you with your peripheral vision.
This is truly an innovation that will save lives and make riding a motorcycle an enjoyable experience.
