A company with a passion for road safety
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 part.
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.
