28 August, 2013 - Faster Photochromic Motorcycle Visors Now Possible - InVision Inserts
Hyper Optics Shield
#Photochromic #Visors #Tinted - Riding your motorcycle in "unstable" weather, weather were you get alternating sunshine and clouds, or riding in places where there are a lot of shadows (cities, forests), means that your eyes will need to get used to sudden sunshine or sudden darker vision. Of course this is not a problem when you ride with sunglasses since it is always dark. But that is not a good thing either, since if your vision is darkened by sunglasses you might just miss seeing that pothole or animal in front of you. The same applies to using sun-visors built-in your helmet. Although built-in sun-visors are the next best thing since you can lower or raise them whenever you need to, you need to let go of your handlebar to do it, and that is not always welcome either.

One accessory that helps you achieve a more relaxing motorcycle ride, not requiring you to do anything to cut the sun glare or be able to see more of the road, are photochromic visors. These are visors that are placed onto (from the inside of your helmet) your normal visor, and when the sun hits these inserts, they turn darker. When the sun goes away, they go clear. You can buy prescription glasses that do that for the last few decades, so it is not new technology.

So very simple and easy, right? Not really, since one of their biggest defaults until now was that these visors require time to change tint. A few years ago, it could take up to 60 seconds for them to change, and when riding a motorcycle, 60 seconds can be a lifetime.

Maric Performance, a company that has been supplying anti-fog inserts for ages now, have a new product called Hyper Optiks. Hyper Optiks are photochromic inserts that change state within 4 seconds!..........

17 July, 2013 - Reevu Adds HUD To Motorcycle Helmet Integrated Mirror
Reevu HUD
Reevu HUD
#Reevu #HUD #Helmet - Reevu are those folks that have made several years ago a helmet with an integrated mirror, allowing you to see what is going on behind you from the top of your helmet where a mirror is integrated. This way your eyes would have to travel far less distance to "see" behind you. The idea is pretty interesting, but after a fast "mini-test" I noticed that your eyes needed to get used to the concept and the mirror is actually quite small, which worried me slightly.

Despite several attempts, Reevu never wanted to send over a review helmet for me to test properly, so I can only stand by my original review. Now Reevu are adding more information to the mix. They have what they call the "Intelligent EYE Helmet" device, a device that uses Reevu's own MROPS (Multiple Reflective Optical Systems - the process that makes it possible to see behind you) and projects data from integrated mobile communications into the mirror system. This data is presented to you the way a fighter pilots gets his data, in the form of a Heads Up Display (HUD)...........

Patent Helmet Video Screen
#Patent #Helmet #Gadget - Of all the daft ideas I've seen and read, here's a beauty. It's a patent filed last year in the USA, and the patent calls for a screen, let's say a LCD-type computer screen to be mounted to the back of a motorcycle helmet.

This allows the pillion to see a video image on the back of the rider's helmet. I kid you not. One idea of the "inventor" is to put a camera in the front of the helmet, thereby allowing the pillion to see what's on the road. Gulp...........

21 March, 2013 - France: Some Clarification About The Motorcycle Helmet Stickers
click to see where France is on the map
Two weeks ago I published an article about an old law in France that requires all motorcycle helmets sold in France to have reflective stickers on them. In the article I stated the dimensions, and it was just a reminder of the law.

The article itself drew several questions, and I've been monitoring discussion forums and blogs on this matter, and I'm amazed at some of the things mentioned. Here are some responses to the items ..........

14 March, 2013 - France: Little Known Fact - All Motorcycle Helmets Require Stickers!
Reflective Helmet Stickers
France flag
Here's a little fact that few people know, even those living in France. France is the only country in the world, to my knowledge, that requires all motorcycle helmets to have reflective stickers.

Officially you need four reflective stickers; front, rear and both sides. The surface of each sticker needs to be 18 cm2, and within each sticker you need to be able to draw a 40mm diameter circle, or a 12.50 cm2 rectangle with a minimum 20 mm length. The stickers should not be removable (without damaging the helmet) and remain reflective over time.

Crazy as it may sound, this is true, and if you get caught without one, you get fined €135 and they deduct 3 points from your license. So you get docked the money and points even if you motorcycle helmet itself has been properly homologated...........

There's been quite a lot of heated articles and debates concerning the helmets used by the French police. Even so much so that a part of them went on "strike", since their helmets were totally inadequate.

However, the French National Police and the Gendarmerie (which is a different authority), have contracted German motorcycle helmet manufacturer Schuberth to deliver 7,000 police version C3 helmets (not the C3 PRO which was introduced later). This means that over the next 4 years all the old helmets are being phased out, and replaced by the newer, but heavily modified, Schubert C3...........

18 October, 2012 - HelmetLok: Ideal Motorcycle Helmet Locking Device?
I always struggle to lock my helmet on my motorcycle when travelling. I never want to carry my helmet when I've arrived at my destination, and although my BMW has got a helmet lock, the Ducati or Suzuki doesn't. I do have a small chain and lock, but they take up room when not in use, usually stowed away in the Beemer's topcase, or in a backpack. And when riding two-up, it becomes more of an issue.

Australian HelmetLok looks like it's the right product. HelmetLok comes in normal or rubberized versions, chrome or none, and as an extra option, you can get a cable to add extra things to the lock-up, or if your helmet doesn't have a D-ring...........

6 June, 2012 - Send Your Motorcycle Helmet To A Spa
Helmet Spa Machine
USA flag
Motorcycle helmets get tired, sweaty and dirty. When you get hot, you start sweating. Your head sweats as much as the rest of your body, maybe even more. And the sweat needs to go somewhere, and on your head, that somewhere is your helmet.

After a day riding off-road, or in the blistering sun, quite a lot of sweat will have accumulated in your helmet. That has several drawbacks; it will stink, and more importantly, bacteria will start growing like mushrooms in a cave.

For companies that hire out motorcycles and helmets, it is even more important to make sure helmets are sterile and clean. Would you want to hire a helmet that has someone's sweat in it? I know I don't...

The helmet has Facebook decals splattered over it, but what sets it apart from other plain vanilla helmets is that the back of the helmet is a blank white area. The area has been treated, and can be used to write on with a magic marker.
