A favorite of Tours Director, Arlen Hall, Tiger Eye mirrors have been handmade in America for over a decade. They are constructed from high grade glass optics and a stainless steel bicycle spoke and should fit almost any helmet.

Installation instructions:

  • To install the Tiger Eye mirror it should be placed in the northwest corner of the helmet; not too far in front or it will block forward vision, and not too far back or you will have to look too hard to the left to see it.
  • When attaching the mirror to the helmet the large rubber-coated U portion of the mirror that slides onto the edge of a helmet should be squeezed almost closed and then gently opened just enough to get it started on the edge of the helmet, then push it on the rest of the way. This will insure a tight attachment to the helmet; half of the U should be between the brow pad and the inside of the helmet, and the other half of the U on the outside of the helmet.
  • Since every helmet is different, the final adjustment requires some bending of the spoke to get the mirror where it needs to be on a particular helmet. Don't be afraid to bend it, it's a bike spoke and it won't break from bending it. Place your left finger in your left ear and bend the spoke until you can see your finger. This will require you to take the helmet on and off a few times and hold the mirror onto the helmet while you are bending it and testing it’s position. Once you have that position, set you will need to turn your head very slightly to the left to see directly behind you.

I have tried many different mirror types, including handlebar mounted, glasses mounted, and helmet glue-ons. This is the best mirror and mounting arrangement I have found. It does take a little work to get it adjusted just right, but once you get it set, it provides a clear, full view of the road behind. You need to be careful not to knock it off or out of adjustment when removing/storing your helmet, but I have traced the gripping end of the mirror onto my helmet with a permanent marker, so I can easily realign the mirror every time I put my helmet on. Great product!

Works for me

This mirror is solid once you get it dialed in. I like the real glass lens and it keeps me from getting run over. Or more accurately, at least it won’t be a surprise.

I have 3 of these. One for each helmet. Best mirror on the market once I get it on and adjusted it stays there!?? I use a pliers to help bend the wire. Like the real glass and the clearity.

Excellent once i got it attached

This is my first bicycle mirror. At first, it was very frustrating trying to attach it to my bell helmet. Then someone explained there was no way the spoke would fit as mokded/bent. However, he showed me it was easy to unscrew and attach to a straight spoke, which he ran through gaps at the top of the helmet and attached w ties.

Love it

Works good and feel much safer knowing what's approaching.
