Reevu MSX1 Rear-View Helmet
This definitely takes some getting used to, but once you get used to it, you'll be glad you bought it.
In terms of style and protection, this helmet at least as good as other helmets of the same price, so don't feel bad about paying more for the feature. Just having that extra range of vision can be a life saver.
Tighten down the mirror after you get it adjusted right and it doesn't jostle at all wile riding.
Comfortable chin strap and plenty of room inside for Sena speakers and a mic.

The rear view mirror system is a great idea
Great Idea with the rear view mirror system, though it needs a couple more tweaks to get you to see a bit better out of the back with the reflected plate on it have not replaced it with the clear one yet but great overall helmet still a bit noisy and the decals are just a bit excessive love the helmet would buy again can't wait to see how they improve upon this helmet.

Great features. Truly innovative
The rear view actually works and adds significant safety value.
Looking straight ahead you have in your peripheral vision what is coming up behind and besides you as well.
The quality of construction is also very good.
Only downside is that it does feel slightly heavy

Rearview mirrors? Who needs them with this helmet!
I was blown away. My only nit picks were, wish the helmet was a more oval shape, my chin was up against the inside all the time, not a deal breaker tho, the tinted shields are a pain to put on and make sure it's in place proper cause you can't see thru it, the piece on the actual mirror that says "rear vision" is kinda loose on one side and feels like it could snap off if I'm not careful. My only other issue was going to be that I wish the mirror image was a bit bigger, but I changed my mind once I started to ride, it's just enough. It took me no time to get used too, unlike what other people were saying, I took right to it. Felt great to be able to see what was/is directly behind me. GREAT HELMET!

My first helmet, helmet is a bit heavier than other helmets but nothing too bad. Having the ability to look behind you is amazing, I can see three lanes wide behind me. Makes it a lot easier to be aware of your surroundings, using head checks and side mirrors plus looking behind you using the rearview its boss. Rearview mirror has never shifted while riding. Great helmet, would buy again.

It took me 1 ride to get used to the read view. It just takes adjustments to how you tilt your head to see what you want to see behind you. The view isn't crisp, but it give a nice quick view of what is behind you without the elbow dip to look in the side mirrors.
I found the helmet to be comfortable, more comfortable than my Bell Star. Fits me true to size and a tag heavier, but barely noticeable.
This helmet is not a gimmick. Works pretty well.

One of a kind
The REEVU MX-1 is truly a one of a kind helmet on the market today. I purchased the matte black option with the mirrored face shield.
I have about 10 years experience riding sport bikes and I have never seen a helmet so advanced.
I admit it takes a couple weeks of continuous riding to get used to a new stream of data coming at you due to the fact you have already trained yourself to focus on other things on the road.
Although I was willing to go out on a limb to try rear-view technology, I was a bit disappointed with the huge "Reevu" branding graphics on both sides of the helmet. In the future I hope they could be a little more subtle about getting their name out there; the industry leaders have proved subtleness in branding successful. So, if they plan to sell to the younger crowd they should consider changing the color/graphics scheme.
My next complaint is the quality of the matte finish; I recommend a helmet bag if you plan to purchase this option because the paint scratches extremely easily. I barely bumped the door when I was leaving a movie theater once and left a big nasty scratch on the side. Eventually I had to get the helmet professionally repainted to repair the small scratches I had accumulated over the course of a few months.
The last issue I had with the helmet was the fit, it seems as though this design was only meant for a round or semi oval head, so anyone with an oval head like me will probably experience a lot of wind noise.
Overall, I have enjoyed having this helmet despite the few negatives I’ve encountered.

Love it +++++ I'd be afraid to ride in any other helmet.
I just got my first street bike after about 5 years of riding dirt bikes casually. I'm an amateur bodybuilder, about 235 lbs and with the extra inches my armored jacket adds to my already wide shoulders I really can't see much in my side mirrors. I'm using this REEVU mirror waaaay more than the side mirrors and I couldn't imagine riding without it. A quick scan lets me see everything behind me in every lane. I do wish it shipped with the clear rear screen, the silver one that it comes with distorts colors slightly almost like the colors in an oil spill, this rear screen seems a little too dark also. I'll probably get the clear screen soon. Overall I would definitely recommend this helmet. I'm never gonna ride without a rear-view capable helmet after depending so much on this one.
