The story behind the invention of the RearViz...
After nearly hitting a cyclist with his car four years ago, Australian business owner Raymond Crane came up with an idea. With a compact makeup mirror, ripped up wet suit material and a bunch of staples, the first ever RearViz mirror was created. From then, the idea quickly transitioned into a packaged product and onto the arms of cyclists around the world. The product is an arm-mounted rear vision mirror that allows cyclists to look forward and see behind their bike for oncoming traffic. Now often referred to as ‘the next best thing to a helmet’ the RearViz mirror is combating rider safety in a big way.
What makes the RearViz so special?
The RearViz is the world's first arm-mounted cycling mirror. With a fully-rotatable base and a mirror that pivots 180 degrees riders can position their mirror anywhere on their arm to find the perfect rearward vision to suit their eyesight and riding style. The RearViz mirror is designed for the rider, not just the bike. Whether you're dodging busy traffic commuting to work or riding in a group, the RearViz mirror gives cyclists a virtual pair of eyes on the back of their heads. Cyclists can now watch the road in front of them while using their peripheral vision to check for oncoming cars or hazards. As the mirror is mounted to your body, the RearViz eliminates road vibration and does not distort your vision like conventional bike-mounted mirrors do. The materials are waterproof and weather-resistant, making the mirror extremely durable in tough conditions. With a perforated, lightweight, one-size-fits-all armband, users can wear the RearViz for short or long rides.
