A favorite of a former 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.

Even though I use the Garmin Varia Radar, which works extremely well, there are times when the unit disconnects from my Garmin Edge 530. This mirror provides a second way to see traffic, especially other cyclists, that are behind me. It took some time to fit the mirror onto my POC Octal, but now that it is on it stays in place and works well. I highly recommend it.

the best mirror I've tried

I commute, bike in traffic and ride a lot. I feel naked without a mirror. Tiger Eye is easy to attach and adjust and gives a clear, wide view. I liked mine so well, I bought one for my wife. She likes it too, says it is the clearest mirror she has had. For me, a mirror is a requirement and this is one of the best.

I have tried glasses mounted, and helmet glue-ons mirros. This is the best mirror and mounting arrangement I have used. 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. I need to be careful not to knock it off or out of adjustment when removing the helmet. The clarity is the best that I've seen.

Just one problem

I got mine in Spring 2017. Getting it set up took a few iterations, but then it was good for over a year. I came to depend on it. But this year the reflective silver has started to deteriorate, to the point where it interferes with the view. Otherwise, I've been very happy with this mirror.

I found it easy to adjust. It took me two tries to get it right, and it stays right if you don't bump your helmet around. Very satisfied!
