Australian company RearViz has two new wearable products designed to increase safety on the road and catch video for later use. Their first product, the patent pending RearViz (product name same as the company) is a rear view mirror that you wear on your body. An interesting alternative to the helmet mirror, the angle of the mirror is adjustable to fit your body.

The Uni Mount mounting system for GoPro cameras uses a similar body attachment system, and allows full 360 degree adjustability to aim the camera.  Available in different sizes and compatible with accessories for other items, see the details after the break…

RearViz_rear_view_mirrorThe RearViz rear view mirror is designed to be worn on the arm, placing it at the widest part of the body, letting you aim the convex mirror so you can see what’s coming up behind you. The the breathable, perforated strap is adjustable to any arm size. Classic and Standard models are available, with the Classic model upgrading to a pouch with a small medical ID tag. There are several colors available, and cost between $21.60 and $43.39.

Just announced, the Uni Mount uses a similar mounting system to the RearViz, but replaces the mirror with a GoPro mount. Primarily intended for the GoPro, it is designed to face either forward or backwards, which can double as a safety feature. Some riders using a rear-facing camera on the road who have experienced harassment, or even being hit by a car, have had success using the footage to press charges, find a hit and run driver, or show law enforcement evidence.

RearViz says that they are also working on other accessories that will fit the Uni Mount, such as a cell phone mount, and those will be available soon. The Uni Mount is coming soon, price TBD.

The best rearview mirror for road bikes is the CycleAware Roadie. Hands down. I am amazed all road bike aren’t using them as they are pretty aero, light, unobtrusive and blend with the normal lines of a road bike. Plus they are stable and provide a very good view almost regardless of position on the bike. I feel naked without mine.

I understand the notion of a camera for safety, but it really doesn’t provide that. It only provides data to possibly help from a legal standpoint, after the fact. A mirror at least gives a warning that a car is coming too close so you can take action before. Plus they are nice to see other cyclists coming up, especially on bike paths. Mirror first. Camera second.

If you want a good mirror, check out the Take a Look Mirror. I have used the larger one for years and it works great, plus you don’t have to look down to see into it. This just looks like it would be very inconvenient to have to take your eyes off of the road to look down at your mirror. Not that you don’t already do that if you have a computer or any other type of item on your bars, just saying.

If you can turn your head you don’t need a rear view mirror. Let it be known only Fred’s use mirrors.

That’s a deep comment, Marcos. The truth is that with a mirror you don’t have to take your eyes off the road for as long as you do when you turn your head. A mirror also allows you to check behind more often because of, well, that whole time thing again. There’s naught wrong with cyclists that feel safer with a mirror.

“Primarily intended for the GoPro […] can double as a safety feature […] had success using the footage to press charges, find a hit and run driver, or show law enforcement evidence.”

Being able to find a hit and run driver or press charges to someone is not a security feature. Once you’re dead, game is over even if the culprit is in prison.

marcos, the only Fred’s are the ones that think they can run sans mirror, only to “check their shoulder” as someone passes, causing them to move to said left.

Guys, I am very hard of hearing and rely on my mirror heavily. A recent incident has made me decide to get a rearview mirror type camera. I do not know what is best, originally I thought I could just wi-fi a camera to my Galaxy S6 Phone but I am now not so sure. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, apart from you Marcos!
