I've used one of these mirrors for a number of years and would not be without it. It's not the cheapest available but, although it's the only type I've tried, reviews of others at Amazon have not persuaded me to try any of the other brands/types.

The main drawbacks with the mirror are that eventually the adhesive attaching it to the helmet fails. I solve this with "no nails" double sided tape. Secondly, after a while the flexible arm suffers from being flexed and also fails. Thirdly the mirror can become loose in its mounting and start to swivel too much. So this mirror has a limited life span of maybe 3 to 6 years depending on how much you use it.

Nevertheless it's still my preferred choice of mirror because it does the job so well.

When parking the bike I generally include the helmet on the securing chain, when some care is need to avoid knocking the mirror out of alignment. However if this does happen, and it usually does, then it's easy to adjust back to it's correct alignment.

Unusually the Amazon price is not on this occasion the best price available.

Like Eyes in the Back of your Head 20 Jan. 2008
By ARLMAR - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Have had this product for more than 1 year. I'm an avid cyclist, 3 times a week, over 3,000 miles a year (OK, I'm retired) During the summer most of my cycling is on country roads so it's imperative that I see what's coming before I hear it. It works well once you get used to it. First you must set it up on your helmet. With some of today's designs this takes some thought, but stick with it (no pun intended). Then you must position it so it doesn't block your forward vision. Practice around the house or walking outdoors until you feel comfortable. The mirror arm is quite flexible & strong so it's easy to move. The oval shape gives a large view & the mirror design increases the depth of field to make it easy to see the approaching objects.As well the mirror itself swivels making it adjustable for anyone. If you have to move it to another helmet I found that several layers of 2 sided thick carpet tape worked just fine to secure the base. The mirror which snaps on a little ball joint at the end of the arm became sloppy so I wrapped a small piece of painter's tape around it. It's quite strong though as I found out when I took a tumble off my mountain bike. I cracked my helmet & ribs but the mirror stayed on in one piece. Would highly recommend this safety device to any cyclist whether you bike on roads or just a neighborhood trail. I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars as I feel you should be able to order additional arms and or mirrors as needed.

Un-hinged 17 April 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I was a little hesitant to do this review until I had used this item for a while, and fully gave it a chance since the first time I took it out of the package, I was manually moving the mirror around to see its range of motion and it came off in my hand. Not a good way to start a consumer/product relationship. Still I gave it a chance as I was in need of a mirror, and was excited to finally have one. The "assembly" was easy enough, pretty much peel and stick. Although if you have a helmet with no flat areas at least an inch wide, it may not work. It BARELY fit on my Giro helmet, but its stuck tight ever since so no complaints there.

If you are careful not to turn the mirror to a completely 'landscape' type orientation you have a pretty large area you can cover with the mirror. It's easy enough to adjust during a ride, and has saved my butt more than once already. I probably would have made the mirror more wide than tall if I had designed it, but it still serves it's purpose. I'd say my biggest gripe about the product is the hinge, once again. Not only does it come off in your hand from time to time, but if you are facing a particularly bad head wind, the mirror re-adjusts itself. One minute you are fighting against mother nature, the next you look up and all you can see is the ground. Not cool. Overall, I think it serves it's purpose and helps greatly, although I think the hinge could have been a little better.

loose socket 19 Jun. 2010
By dancer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a terrible mirror. It stuck to my helmet well enough, but it often pops out of the attachment. My biggest complaint though, is that the universal ball joint is way too loose. It requires constant readjustment- the slightest head wind, down hill or road vibration and the mirror moves, rendering it useless. My husband has the third eye, and it's much better. I'm getting one of those.

Good, but flimsy connection mirror/arm 6 July 2008
By W. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
I've had the mirror for two weeks now. It took some time to adjust and get used to, as I had grown fond of my handle-bar mounted mirror.

I've noticed an increased field of view with the helmet mount, which is a great advantage when riding 8.5 miles down two major roads to/from work every day.

My only complaint is that the mirror detaches from the arm far too easily. Lost it the other day when a co-worker gave me a ride home from work since I'm lacking a suitable rain suit.

Will probably contact manufacturer to see about buying a replacement mirror if the co-worker hasn't managed to find it.

I would suggest finding a way to 'tie' the mirror to the arm to prevent loss, or maybe even go to the extreme of gluing it once you find the ideal positioning.

disappointing 19 Sept. 2008
By Robert Keeney - Published on Amazon.com
I bought two of these mirrors for two different helmets. They worked fine, but the small oval mirror came out of the snap socket too easily. I lost both of the mirrors within days of purchase (under normal use). I called Performance Cycling's customer service and they agreed to refund my purchase. This would be a good product if the mirrors stayed put.
