by fromNot perfect, but does it's job. I'm only a week in with this, but have use it daily on my commute. First, it takes a little getting used to. Second, it can vibrate on rough surfaces. Third, it takes a little fiddling to get it adjusted for each ride. However, it sticks well to my helmets slightly curve surface, and it allows me to check traffic coming up from behind, making for much safer moves to the left, which my commute requires. Without it my field of view just is not good. I'm keeping it, gladly.

by fromEasy to lose mirror The adhesive used to connect the mirror to the helmet is very weak. The mirror fell off my helmet. By the time I could retrieve it, it had already been run over by a car. Remove all the adhesive if you do decide to buy this mirror and replace it with some real double sided tape.

by fromFar from good As mentioned already, the adhesive is far too weak to keep it secured. Not only that, the mirror is connected to the arm by a cheap ball joint which disconnects very easily. This thing fell off my helmet and exploded a couple times before I stepped my game up to a glasses-mounted mirror. Much better.

by fromwon't ride in the road without this I have been using this for 3 years. the only problem is the mirror is easily knocked out of the socket. I lost 2 mirrors then I tied the mirror to the arm with thread. never lost another also never adjust the mirror while riding just stop. I won't go on the street without my mirror. Its a great product.

by fromA good mirror This helmet-mounted mirror gives a good image, with little vibration. It's easy to adjust while riding and holds the adjustment for the entire ride. You can flip it up and out of your field of vision if desired. Snaps on and off the base, which permanently attaches to the helmet, so it can be stored safely to avoid scratching when not in use. Adjust it so you can see a little bit of the side of your head and shoulder then when you turn your head slightly to the left you scan the whole road behind. When installing the base, clean the spot on the helmet with alcohol, then after attaching let it sit undisturbed for an hour. As an extra measure I apply some Gorilla superglue around the edge and it's a very secure attachment. I was going to rate it 4 stars but I couldn't think of a thing wrong with it so I'm giving it 5. If you want a helmet mounted mirror, this is the one to get.

by fromGood product I was initially reluctant to try this product after reading all the negative reviews, but I did not find anything better to use with my road bike. I honestly wanted to throw this mirror away after first couple of rides, as it is not easy to get used to. However, after using it daily for few hundred miles commuting to work on roads with busy traffic, this mirror gets 5 stars from me. It does not come unglued from the helmet, it stays in position once aligned, and it reliably provides the traffic information that I need to get by. Does not get any better then that.

by fromGreat Mirror if you know the trick This is an excellent helmet mirror. Problems with the mount can be completely avoided if you A) CLEAN the helmet thoroughly before attaching the mount and B) DETACH the mirror arm from the mount point when the helmet is not actually on your head. To detach the mirror arm, rotate it 90 degrees to expose the sides of the mount, use one hand to PRESS the mount firmly against your helmet and the other hand to pop the mirror arm off the helmet. Any constant pressure on the mirror arm will pry the mount point off your helmet, so support the mount when you pop the mirror off and don't store your helment in a bag, or even on a shelf, without removing the mirror arm. The helmet itself will lean on the arm, creating a lever which will eventually cause the mount to fail. I've retired three helmets; the original mirror and mount point outlasted each. As long as you're the kind of person who can keep up with the part you took off (I store my helmet upside down with the mirror arm in it) this mirror will last the life of your helmet.
