This may be ok for those who sit upright but I found that I didn't get a decent rear view and natural head movement plus vibration meant that I spent more time trying to find a position. It's safer and easier to look round - don't buy.

Its very difficult to line up the mirror to be able to see behind you. Since the stalk holding the mirror is very thin there is a certain amount of movement coming from the road to the bike that makes the mirror shake.

This mirror is so small there is no way anything can be seen when cycling. It is difficult to attach to an ordinary helmet.

May not be what I needed 26 May 2007
By XRing - Published on Amazon.com
I have to agree that the mirror 'arm' is too short.

However, my helmet is one of the larger made.

(Bell Faction Dave Mirra Multi-Sport)

I also think I should have purchased a mirror with a larger diameter.

Since the mirror arm and mount adjustment socket-balls have such

a limited range of movement, I had a very limited choice in where

the mirror base (double-sided-sticky) could be installed.

I have to look way up and left to see the mirror, and

that might take a lot of getting used to.

Had I been able to mount it lower, it would be easier

to use (without rolling my eyes so far over).

While out riding today, I found that the mirror can be removed

from it's base. Built into the flat mounting section, there

are two little 'snaps' that hold two segments together.

While I was reaching up trying to adjust my view,

the whole thing popped off in my hand.

I snapped it back on later when we stopped for ice cream. :)

There is much more vibration ( = fuzzy vision) than

is seen in my handlebar mounted (Blackburn) mirror.

If you ride on bumpy roads a lot, forget this mirror!

If I get another one, It will be bigger and have a longer arm.

Easy to Use Helmet Mirror 4 Nov 2007
By Linda Sigismondi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was surprised to see the negative reviews of this item. I have been using a Blackburn Helmet Mirror for 4-5 years. I was only ordering a new one to go with a new helmet. I have used a third eye helmet mirror and a wire helmet mirror in the past, and find the Blackburn much easier to attach and adjust. I have been using a helmet mirror since I began serious cycling in the 1980's. Though it is much smaller than a handlebar mirror, it gives a more accurate picture of the distance of the approaching vehicle.

Removable but not as good as Third Eye Mirror... 22 Aug 2009
By Y. R. Wu - Published on Amazon.com
<Summary> A huge plus for safety, but not the best type of rear mirror on the market

A rear view mirror is a MUST for anyone riding with traffic.

HELMET mirrors are NOT for everyone as they do require some getting used to. It took me at least 2-3 rides before I got used to it. I've been using one since 2003 and do not feel safe without one.

Helmet mirrors do a better job as you can still have a blind spot with the bicycle mounted mirrors - I have my helmet mirror set so I can see my shoulder and the side of my head. This gives me a clear view of traffic behind and to my right. By turning my head 30 degrees to my right, I completely "sweep" to all lanes on my left side.

I have BOTH this this and the Third Eye helmet mirror. The Third Eye is definitely better. I have this one mounted on my Giro Animas so I can pop off the mirror when I go offroad and don't need to see behind me. The Third Eye is mounted on my Giro Atmos, which I use exclusively for road riding.

PLUS
- Pops off the base in case you want to ditch it for an offroad ride (or lose it...)

MINUS
- Long solid arm is not very stiff
- Adjustment range is limited
- Heavy mirror means it bounces and vibrates a lot

Note: The helmets I have used them on are the Giro Atmos, Giro Animas, Bell Forza II and Bell Phi II.

Needs getting used to, but will work fine. 11 Jun 2008
By Jennifer Davis-Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this after having a handlebar mirror that jiggles all over the place. This one doesn't jiggle, but I'm not sure this is superior. It is nice to be able to see traffic behind you in your peripheral vision without having to consciously check. Looking at the mirror itself gives you a pretty clear picture of the traffic. I think it will work for me eventually as I get used to it, but here's some caveats:

1. You must mount it so that only your left eye can see it. If you mount it too much in the front of your vision so that your right eye tries to look in it, your brain will get really confused. To figure out roughly where it needs to go, look straight ahead, cover your left eye and move the mirror until it just goes out of sight of your right eye.

2. Because of #1, you do need to look pretty far out of the upper left side of your eye. Overdoing this at first may give you some eye muscle strain! Better to use your peripheral vision most of the time.

3. It takes a lot of adjustment to get the mirror in the optimal position. I finally got the adjustment right and then the mirror fell off because of the heat + repositioned glue pad. Luckily they give you two extras.

5. Because the mirror is mounted on your head, it's a bit counterintuitive seeing things. If you move your head, the image moves the wrong way! You have to move only your eyes.

So I'd recommend a handlebar mirror for most people, since they are easier to use. But if you're set on a helmet mirror, I suppose this one will do fine, just be prepared to have it take some getting used to.

Too short, thus rendered useless... 6 July 2006
By N. Maddix - Published on Amazon.com
This mirror may fit on any helmet, but the legnth is far too short to see anything. I was looking for something a little longer and wider. For the reference, my helmet is a Bell Ghisallo ('05).
