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 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

I kept tweaking this mirror to see traffic behind me, but I just couldn't get it right. For very near objects, it is ok, but I found I could hear the cars/trucks long before they showed in this mirror. Maybe I need more help in the adjusting, but I felt it just didn't give me a big enough picture.
