Reevu helmets were conceived to address a failing at the very
heart of bike helmet design and operation - to overcome the sensory
deprivation from loss of peripheral vision and hearing.
The inventors saw this as an crucial aspect of motorcycle helmet
design that needed to be addressed. The critical issue us that
accident prevention is just as important as impact protection and
that is where the patented Reevu rear view system plays its
Historically, helmets have had 'clip on' mirrors and other such
'external' devices or bike accessories, all of which had inherent
weaknesses and seldom made a significant contribution to road
safety. Never before had serious consideration been given to
integrating a rear-vision system into the shell of a helmet.
Whilst the overall aim was to allow the wearer to achieve the same
road awareness provided by a rear view mirror in a car; the real
challenge was to achieve this design within the very limited space
of the housing of a helmet.
After many years of painstaking development and testing Reevu now
provides the world's only integrated rear view system. It does not
rely on any electronic systems, cameras or screens. It uses an
ingenious reflective polycarbonate device that 'bends' the view of
the road behind and presents a clear image to the wearer.
A first in road safety and a celebration of ingenuity.
