Allview Review Mirror - Wide Load Mirror

Posted in Product Reviews on January 1, 2005

Sure, most of us use a rear-view mirror, at least someof the time. The problem is that you usually can't see everything you want at a glance, so sideview mirrors are checked and a glance over both shoulders confirms what you couldn't see. And if you have a stiff neck or wear a helmet, you can't really be checking the sideview mirrors as much as you should. So what's a driver to do?

We've seen the convex-style rearview mirrors before, as well as the multi-segment style, and found that the distortion and aggravation to be just not worth it. But then we tried the Allview mirror, and it really works well for us. Instead of the weird view most oddball mirrors give, this style is aspheric, or only slightly aberrated, yet gives a clean view from side to side with relative ease. By looking out the rear-side windows at the same time as the rear, it's easier to judge the speed and distance of a vehicle behind you, and also when it's safe to change lanes without the over-the-shoulder glance. While nothing can eliminate blind spots, this mirror can really help you on the freeway, and works just as well on the trail or competition circuit.
