I've been a fan of Reevu ever since first hearing about them on Beyond 2000 many moons ago. If you're not familiar with Reevu, the helmet features an integral rear vision mirror. In the above picture, that's the little bar above the eyes. (I can confirm that it does not interfere with primary vision.) Today I was able to arrange an exchange for my mint in box Gen 1 Reevu from a few years ago, for a current AS1698 approved Gen 2. (How good is that! Woot!) I haven't had a chance to get the helmet out on the road yet, but first impressions are that it's a clear step up from the previous series. The fit is good, finish excellent, materials of construction top notch, surprisingly light and no tight spots that I can detect at this stage. The helmet strap mechanism is unique - not a seat belt latch, not a D ring, but a ratchet latch - might even be simple enough to do with gloves on. The idea of being able to keep tabs on what's behind you just using your upper peripheral vision appeals. It'd be an ideal helmet for commuting riders on scooters, tourers and more upright style bikes. Stay tuned for a ride and "living with it" report. I'll be interested to see how it works with the 9R - the sports riding position might not work ideally with the mirror, but the mirror might come into it's own in traffic when you're generally more upright. They aren't widely available in Melbourne yet - if I'm not mistaken though, Geoffrey Honda carries the helmet. Stay tuned.
