Reflex™: The Flexible Helmet Mirror
[01-4000]

Pros: It turns with your head, and doesn't force you to turn your handlebars, and you can see a wide range without pulling into traffic or into a ditch (or in my case this week, over a cliff on Highway 1 in California). You can still see where you're going. Big plus!

Super flexible: you can make this thing do any dance you want to, just adjust it however you need. All axes are covered!

The mirror is a real mirror, and not an image-distorting piece of metal like you get on some other models, particularly handlebar-end models.

It attaches to the helmet, and not on a pair of glasses, so you can use it all the time. Glasses-type mirrors are okay in bright sunshine, but I usually don't wear sunglasses at 5 a.m., and I don't wear prescription glasses.

Cons: It falls off WAY too easily! I lost my mirror after a run this week, and a buddy almost lost his. His mirror comes off the flex arm, mine fell off at the ball-and-socket joint, so when I bought a new one yesterday, I put a screw into the ball-and-socket joint, and it still rotates but also stays put.

Summary: Great mirror, just needs a design tweak.
