Some riders may be hesitant to wear motorcycle helmets on the road because the gear limits their field of vision, but a new development from Reevu is changing that. The manufacturer recently introduced a new helmet, the RV MSX1, which comes equipped with a rear view imaging system.
According to Slash Gear, the helmet's signature is an integrated optical device that allows riders to view what's going on behind them. Instead of a camera, the safety accessory utilizes a series of reflective surfaces - all coated on bulletproof material designed not to shatter in the event of an accident - which can be adjusted to allow motorcyclists to see everything going on around them.
The helmet is currently available as a full face model that builds off Reevu's long-standing tradition of creating innovative motorcycle gear.
"During soft market conditions, business success relies heavily on innovation [and] product developments that can excite the market," said Graham Steele, Reevu's marketing director. "Reevu's motorbike helmet range are most certainly delivering on that front - it's like having all of the spades and just waiting to play your hand one card at a time."
