When it comes to motorcycle helmets, Reevu is one of the most innovative manufacturers. The company is known for its famous, high tech helmets with built-in rear viewers and now has an even bigger surprise for us.
Its new product is a modern helmet with an integrated head-up display that looks like a piece of gear borrowed from a sci-fi movie.
The digital display is integrated into the top of the visor and keeps you posted on vital stats such as engine RPMs, speed, sat-nav directions or sector split times and lap times.
Unfortunately the company didn’t’ reveal too many information about its futuristic helmet, but it seems to be using a technology called the “multiple reflective optical system” that won’t disturb the rider’s eyes in any way.
The solution found by Reevu is welcomed, as one of the most common causes of accidents is that the riders didn’t look where they were going. That lapse of attention created by the moment when one wants to check his speed or tachometer could transform into a disaster.
