Peace of mind has never been more affordable with Take a Look's simple yet effective mirror design. The three-prong clamp attaches securely and easily to virtually any helmet visor or pair of glasses for a vibration-free view of what's behind. A small-profile frame paired with a wide borderless mirror ensures unobstructed forward vision; all that's needed is a quick glance for a complete rearward view.

Steel, brass, and acrylic construction makes this highly portable mirror strong enough to handle the toils of an everyday commute or multi-day touring in erratic weather.

Regular and compact versions (shorter arm & mirror) available. Both can be mounted directly to a helmet using the optional helmet adapter.

Use with sunglasses, works well
by IslandRider

This is the second one of these that I've had. Love them. When I was racing bikes, I don't know of anyone that would be caught with a mirror, including me. But, with distracted driving becoming the default and no longer living in a low traffic area, having an idea of what's behind me in traffic could save my skin. It weighs next to nothing, requires minimal care and can be adjusted to provide a good view of what's in your 6. I don't leave home on a ride without this thing nowadays.

It attaches to my sunglasses and is angled for maximum and sufficient rearview. For several weeks I have used this item, the first of its kind that I have used. I have no complaints about it at all. I ride city streets with lots of motor traffic multiple times a week. No longer need I twist my neck around to see what is behind me. If you ride your bike where cars are driven, there is nothing to decide but to get this mirror.

Granted it looks a little dorky, but now that I have a mirror I don't feel complete if I am on my bike without one.

I prefer the head mounted mirror to the handle bar mounted variety, less vibration, easier to control field of view.

by TBplayer

Road biking. Helmet or eyeglass mirrors take a little while to get used to, but once you do, you'll feel hindered by the limited view of the bike mounted ones. Tried several others but kept coming back to this one for ease of adjustment and stability.

After several years of trying to get other mirrors to work, a friend lent me a Take a Look and I have used it ever since- that was 25 years ago! Put it on your glasses and use its great adjustability and you have excellent rear vision. It is absolutely the best cycling mirror available!

Once you use it, it will be hard to ride without it

I started using a mirror as a ride leader for a local cycling group so I could keep an eye on cyclists behind me. Once I got used to it which really didn't take long, I felt I was missing a critical piece of cycling gear whenever I rode without one.

The regular version may be a bit too close to the eyes for most people since it blocks a lot of your peripheral vision. I find the extended versions works better.

The mirror slides onto the eyeglass temple pieces. Some eyeglasses, particularly the fancier cycling eyewear, have oddly shaped temple pieces that may make it difficult to mount these, so take this into consideration.

In general, I found the eyeglass mounted mirrors to be more effective than helmet mounted or bike mounted mirrors. Helmet mounted mirrors inevitably get dislodged since they are generally attached with simple adhesive. Bike mounted mirrors tend to vibrate too much for my taste, and don't have a wide enough view to get the full picture of what is behind you.

It is easy to mount on a visor, but not on a helmet with out a visor. Found an attachment device the works pretty well. Once mounted in a good location it is easy to a line the mirror for looking at approaching traffic. It is very light weight and good visual field.

by Dennis

Unlike other models with plastic frames that easily break, this metal frame is durable and easy to fit on most eyeglass frames. I rely on this mirror for monitoring traffic behind, and being head-mounted, you can sweep the entire scene behind you. This mirror is a great asset for enhanced safety.

Just got back from my first ride with this mirror. Wow. I've spent hundreds of dollars on fancy neon clothing, flashing lights, reflective fabrics... and nothing even comes close to the amount of safety that this tiny $XX device brings! Not only does it provide you, the cyclist, with information about cars behind you, but, for the first time in my four seasons of cycling, I felt like a valued vehicle on the road. There's an odd psychological behavior that I observed, and I'm not sure how to explain it, but if cars behind you know that you can see them behind you (you slightly tilting your head to view vehicles as they approach), they're much less likely to try something stupid (pass you with a semi-truck approaching in the other lane). Today, in my short 1-hour ride, I had three cars wait to pass me until the opposite lane was clear. No vehicle passed me with cars in the opposite lane. I even had people wait to pass me until no-passing lanes ended! It was amazing! I had more cars treat me like a vehicle in one ride than I have historically been treated in years! I'm not sure why mirrors have this effect and not flashing lights or certain clothes, but heck, for $XX... that's a steal. Stop reading and buy it. Your life is worth more than an IMAX movie.

Essential accessory

Genius engineering.

I am car-free and wear this mirror attached to my helmet visor. It allows me to keep track of what's going on behind me without constantly turning my head around. While no substitute for scanning by turning my ahead around before merging into traffic or a left turn lane, the mirror saves my time by allowing me to monitor traffic and pick a better time to make my move. I see many, many experienced riders wearing these, including long distance tandem tourers wearing one on each side.

I love the elegant infinitely adjustable angles. It was easy for me to set up, and I find the mirror an extremely helpful tool without being a distraction. Super light and strong.

I rode for many years without a rear view mirror. Simply put, this was the best investment I have ever made in regards to safety. Now I couldn't imagine riding without it.

Clips right on to my plastic frame Ray-Ban's no problem, nice and snug, never shifts or slips. Very easy to adjust, then stays put.

Other reviews explain all the great points about this mirror. I mount mine on my glasses and never notice any weight or other comfort issues. It is easy to remove after biking. I'd think helmet mounting would expose the mirror to much impact when tossing the helmet around after biking.

I know, I know...roadies would never be caught dead using a rear view mirror. Well, all I can say is that over the past few years my life has been saved from certain murder by idiot drivers making that right hand turn inches right across my right of way. I refuse to ride unless my rear view mirror is on my shades.

I think those who disdain using them have never really given them any sort of one month trial. Perhaps they are afraid they will actually find them very useful. Being able to see traffic behind you is a must with all the distracted drivers constantly trying to murder bicyclists and it is only getting worse every day.
