5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase
The mirror arrived in good time all the way from Germany. With my helmet - A Giro - the best attachment was on the INSIDE of the helmet on the RHS. I chose the Right side because this is my dominant eye. I think this is important. This position doesn't get in the way of my head as I thought it might. Follow the instructions carefully and the sticky pad works fine. They even provide you with a spare. They suggest that you try out the best position by using masking tape BEFORE using the glue pad. The pad can't be reused so check 2 or 3 times to make sure. The mirror gives a clear undistorted view. You can't see directly behind you because your head is in the way, but moving your head side to side to scan behind works fine. Try it on quiet roads first as it takes a little getting used to like anything new.

10 Months later 27/5/2013... I'm still happy with the mirror but the glue allows the mirror to slide around over time. I intend to use some epoxy resin to glue it better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adhesive works better than clamps... 29 Jan 2011
By Y. R. Wu - Published on Amazon.com
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've tried this and the Blackburn helmet mirror. This one is definitely better.

MINUS
- Does not remove (the Blackburn pops off the base so you can remove it offroading, for example. Don't lose it!)

PLUS
- Shorter arm is stiffer than Blackburn (it's an I-Beam section)
- Adjustment range is better than Blackburn
- Lighter mirror vibrates less than Blackburn

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Eye Helmet Mirror 18 May 2009
By D. Brian Youens - Published on Amazon.com
Although I messed up installing the mirror the first time, once installed I have used the mirror for over six months, traveling over 1,000 miles, with no problems. It has stayed attached to my Trek helmet perfectly. Unless I hit the mirror, in my clumsy fashion, it always stays in position. Parts and repairs are readily available. I would never bike without a mirror of this type--it can save your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far Superior to the Vibrating Blackburn Helmet Mirror 11 Jun 2012
By Steve Oh - Published on Amazon.com
I reviewed the Blackburn Mirror a few days ago and complained of high vibration at speeds above 20 mph, which renders the Blackburn mirror a poor choice for my rides. Slower rides are OK, though. So I wanted to replace the Blackburn mirror with the 3rd Eye Pro because it seemed like its larger diameter arm was going to be much stiffer with less vibration from wind. And...the verdict....it is so, so much better, so much more stable compared to the Blackburn model. The 3rd Eye Pro mirror is larger, too, which I did not think was going to be that much better, but it is better! Now I have a very stable rear view at higher speeds. And you don't have to spend much money, either.

Many complained about installation, so maybe this helps, even though I found the instructions pretty good. The mount is rather large, about twice the area of the Blackburn mirror mount. The slots in the mount allow for flexibility so its larger flat surface conforms to the curved surface of the helmet. It should be mounted on the hard plastic part of the helmet surface, not the styrofoam. I recommend using scotch tape to temporarily mount the mirror on the helmet to make sure it's in the right spot. Put the mount as low as possible on the helmet, and forward enough to get the mirror a few inches forward of your left eye. Place the mount so the pin/ball joint is vertical up and down. This will insure enough adjustment is available when you are fine tuning the position of the mirror and arm. I wear glasses so I have the view from the mirror coming through the upper left corner of the left lens. I unsnapped my Giro helmet's visor before installation to gain better access to the placement of the mount, and snapped it back on after mounting. Before mounting permanently, clean any grease or oil off both the surface of the mount and the helmet with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and a paper towel. This will insure a good bond with the self stick pad. Mount the self adhesive pad on the mount first by peeling off the large protective tape strip and carefully center and position the slots in the pad to line up with the mount slots. Then peel off the small protective tape and mount to the helmet. Push down hard so the flat mount follows the curve of the helmet. That's it. It comes with 2 self adhesive pads, but you could probably use a small amount of contact cement, too. Applying to both the helmet and the mount, letting it dry, and then pressing it into place. Don't get the contact cement on the foam of the helmet. Maybe mask off the foam areas near where you will mount it because contact cement will disolve and melt styrofoam. I would not recommend "Gorilla Glue" which bubbles off while curing, and it would have to be clamped until it sets up. Same with silicone cement. Some hardware stores carry very thin foam self stick pads. Thicker foam self stick pads may result in higher vibration and an unstable mount.

I am very happy with this product. Ride often and ride safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice for the price 15 Sep 2011
By kellykungfu - Published on Amazon.com

Great mirror for the price. One thing that I didn't see anyone talk about is getting it on the correct side of your helmet. I'm a right hand and right eyed person, but thinking that traffic would almost always be on my left, I stuck this on my left, bad idea. If you do not use your dominate eye for this mirror, it'll be almost impossible to focus in on whats being reflected in the mirror. Good thing, this product comes with two double sided tapes :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but with some limitations 11 July 2012
By T. Cocker - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This product is well made and works just as advertised. It was fairly easy to install, although I took the extra time of cutting and sanding the mounting area in the styrofoam shell of my bike helmet to ensure good adhesion of the double-stick tape. Fortunately, my helmet is kind of old and grungy-looking, so a little bit of modification was of no concern to me. My kit even includes a second piece of specially cut double-stick tape in case I want to move the mirror to a new helmet.

I gave this only four stars for the idea more than the product. For some reason, when I bought it, I did not take into consideration that the mirror's mounting point (the helmet) moved as I rode my bicycle. In a car, you know the rear-view mirror is jiggle-free and always pointing straight out the rear windshield. I'm still in the process of learning to first move my head to the exact same position every time I need to glance up at the mirror to see behind me. Also, when I ride in the night hours, seeing the headlights of the cars behind me jiggle in the mirror is also confusing and is taking a while to get used to. Riding on rough roads or pedaling hard (which makes my head bob around) emphasizes the problem.

Pros: Well made. Light weight. Doesn't easily come out of adjustment while riding, although is easily bumped out of position when I take the helmet off. Relatively large mirror area.

Cons: Have to re-adjust it every time I put the helmet on. Needing to 'find' the area behind me as I ride by repositioning my head (Imagine running down the street and using a hand mirror to see what it behind you. Those extra moments finding the right head position is time not spent looking forward).

Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and will, in time, get used to its limitations. Given the chance to do it all over again, I would buy this model without reservation, just the knowledge that it is not as simple to use as it initially appears.
