"This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road.

Last fall, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, and I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

I had three goals for my design:

 1.   That it work as well as an OEM mirror for seeing what was going on behind
2.  That it could fold completely out of the way, safe from giving or receiving damage when offroad and,
3.  That it be tough.

Ideally, it would even have some ability to give in a crash and prevent damage not only to the mirror, but also to the bike.

Many experiments later, the mirror for sale here is the result. The benefits of this system are many, but let me expound on a few.

First, because there are two ball joints, you have the ability to position it exactly where you want it, both when extended for viewing, and also when folded away.

On most bikes, you can fold it perfectly along the handlebars, out of the way of any conceivable crash, and without blocking the view of the speedometer or GPS.

Second, because there is adjustable tension, it is easy to position it and then lock it in place.

The system uses RAM-Mount components, which are well known for their durability and effectiveness.

Third, the joints are stiff enough to hold the mirror at triple digit speeds, but will move if they are struck, which protects you from injury and your bike from damage.

I'm sure it is possible to break the mirror, but I haven't succeeded yet and I've tried pretty hard, going so far as to race an enduro with the mirror in place.

The body is made from 43% glass filled Zytel, which is really tough stuff.

 

Other benefits:

* Easy to remove the mirror entirely- just loosen the RAM arm, and remove it along with the mirror.
* Convex lens- we used SAE spec convex glass that provides a nicer field of view than a flat piece would, while retaining the ability to focus on details. 
* Universal fit- You can easily swap the mirrors between bikes.
*Can be positioned further out than a stock mirror, resulting in seeing more of what is behind you and less of your elbow.

The product meets each of the goals I started out with, and after thousands of miles of testing, has proven to be exactly what I was looking for all those years!" , Ned Suesse

 

NOTE: The pre-defined options below are for 1 mirror (ie. 1 mirror, 1 RAM arm and 1 RAM ball) - for a pair enter "2" in the Qty box at the bottom next to the "Add to Basket" icon

The 'Extras' are parts that may be for specific bikes. For example if you own a BMW F800GS or R1200GS you would unselect the 'RAM Ball with M10 x 1.25 pitch" and add the "RAM Ball with M10 x 1.5 pitch" instead.

Much costlier than in the US (because ripoff britain?). On the upside, much better than OEM equipment on my 2003 KTM. Only the Ram ball mounts could be improved. If anyone's interested, I'll explain how www.hawkshawinnovation.com

highly recommended Review by Zagora
highly recommended" by , written on 22 March 2017
Works well at high speed, clear and no vibration. The mirrors when used with a ram arm are so easy to adjust and ideal for riding off road as easy to tuck in out of the way or just loosen the ram arm a little so in the event of a fall they would fold in undamaged. The only downside is they're easy to steal although I doubt most people will realise how easy they are to remove. A great product, highly recommended.

Great bit of kit for the serious off-roader. Fitted mine the day I picked up my new R1200GS and already proved themselves on my first off-road outing. Also better visibility than the OEM mirrors, cannot rate them highly enough.

très bonne qualité, plus léger que ceux d'origine !! (africa twin 2016) on peut, sur le droit mettre une gopro quand on roule et sur les deux en mode enduro mettre des feux additionnel que l'on branche sur une prise 12v afin d'éclairer l intérieur des virage ou pour avoir un faisceau plus long ou plus large, c'est l'avantage, on peut les diriger comme on veut. sinon les rétros sont efficaces ( je n'ai pas fais le test de la batte de base-ball) . merci a AS pour leurs sérieux ;-)
