Check your six: Reevu MSX1

Found this lid on the tech-guide portion of a magazine. First helmet that sports a rear-view mirror; interesting concept. Worth a look: Reevu MSX1 It'll retail for $399USD

That looks very interesting. Would like to find a US distributor that would be close enough to me to actually try it out before buying though.

How the hell do they get the view to crve around your head? Awesome concept, I'd like to try one on for fit and see how much it weighs.

As of now, they haven't distributed them to dealers. There's a link on their site if you want to buy one, but all it is is an e-mail address link. The weight is on the modular helmet range, XL being 4lbs 7oz (1880g). What's even more interesting is they state you can still see behind you even with 2up.

I know that g00gl3it has looked into becoming a US distributor for the Reevu. Currently, I think they are only European... could be wrong tho.

Yes, I've been in contact with a fellow named Graham. I have the option to purchase 2 helmets.

Note, they just came out with a carbon fiber version.

I'll look up some details on my emails and post them here.

Anybody interested?

$2700USD SRP for the carbon fiber version is a little rich for my blood. Just out of curiosity, what do the CF weigh in at (XL)?

A friend of mine purchased this online late last season. I have tried it on (while riding) and it works well, you can see right behind you but not very far. You just have to get used to not letting your helmet slide forward or backward on your head. The weight is pretty normal. I see this as a somewhat useful system.
The real question and answer.......I will not buy it.

I don't get it. In a car, you cannot see through the heads in the back seat. You have to look between them. How does the reflection get over your own head in this thing?

np. i was considering one almost 2 years ago, but the distribution wasnt DOT certified and not in the US yet...plusthe earlier models weighed a bit more than i liked.

i cant wait until we all get star wars helmets with hud, gps, bluetooth 4.0, biometric readings, solar powered and auto tint in our helmets...and all weigh the same as my bell star

it will come, but i'll be too old to ride by then, or we'll have hovercycles or something.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

If you get to the point of being a distributor, would you be able to get discounts for group buys? If so, I would be interested.

I'm sure I could. I bet I'd have to garner at least 10 or more, to make it viable.

What's the difference between the R and non-R version? The HiViz non-r version is $399.
Also what's the weight on those suckers? I'm spoiled at 1350g for an XL

If the price and weight is right, I'd be interested

Looks like I asked a question I had the answer for 2 years ago. LOL! 1880G for an XL. Hopefully the R model is lighter?
