Last week we had some fun with the Predator Helmet, now it’s time we look into a cool, more utilitarian motorcycle helmet model.
The Reevu RV MSX1 helmet features a fully patented rear view mirror system incorporated in the head protector outshell. While this is not an entirely new idea, what’s cool about the Reevu helmets is that they are not using cameras and LCD’s to allow you check your back … so, there is no danger of malfunction, battery run downs or any other system failures.
Here’s how the guys from Reevu explain how the system works:
“Its Vision system is constructed from a reflective poly carbon plate. In the event of an accident this plate has been designed to react as a crumple zone displacing load across the internal construction of the helmet, in effect a double shell.
Put simply the optical device ‘bends light’ around the shape of the head all within the outer shell casing. The outershell casing is made from a mix of carbon composites to offer alight weight with full impact resistance in adherence to the Worldsmost stringent standards.
REEVU RV MSX1 has already passed most of the Worlds most stringent safety standards it has already proved itself on and off the Track and is currently homologated to ECE 22.05. INMETRO DOT AS/NZS 1698. 2006 S.A.B. K.S.”
Let’s here you in the comments … Do you already have a rear view helmet? What’s your take on this helmet?
