This Mirror is Worth Your Money

A mirror is an essential safety accessory to your e-bike. Some e-bike manufacturers include mirrors in their designs but most don't.

Mirrors come in many styles and sizes. Amazon offers over 9,000 rear view mirrors ranging from $222 to less than a dollar with high shipping costs.

Handlebar Mirrors are a Good Option

Handlebar mirrors appear to be most popular. You attach the mirror either on the handlebar or insert it into the handlebar. Helmet mirrors and eyeglass mirrors are less popular.

The mirror we tested on the helmet kept on shifting, and it was always “in your face.” Some may like it, but it became annoying quickly. For that reason, we skipped the testing of eyeglass mirrors.

We Recommend the Hafny Bar Rear View Handlebar Mirror

We have tried various models and found that a simple but well-built handlebar mirror of less than $20 made by Hafny is the best option.

The Hafny Bar (End Bike Mirror, Stainless Steel Lens, Safe Rear View Mirror) has been tested for over 3,000 miles by E-bike Lovers. The mirror performed so well that we have installed one on each handlebar. We also have a spare mirror just in case.

We guarantee that we have reviewed and used products as described on this website. Our reviews are by E-bike Lovers for E-bike Lovers.  

Pros
  • STABILITY AND VIBRATION – It is surprisingly stable and does not vibrate.
  • FIELD OF VIEW – The convex mirror provides a good view of your surroundings. If you install a mirror on both handlebars, you have an even wider view.
  • ADJUSTABLE – The mirror is easily adjustable while it is firmly attached to the handlebar.
  • 360 DEGREE ROTATION - You can rotate the mirror in all directions.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT – If you are concerned about adding weight to your handlebars, these mirrors do not add much load.
  • UNIVERSAL DESIGN – The mirror can be installed on the left and right handlebars and adjusted to a position above and below the handlebar.
  • CONVEX STEEL LENS – The mirror is made of stainless steel. It will not break easily and can be cleaned easily.
  • SIZE – Fits 14.8~23 mm inside diameter of the handlebar.
Cons
  • PLASTIC CASING – The mirror's casing is plastic. If the bike falls, the plastic may break, which happened to us. Not a big deal and it was my fault.
Conclusion

We give it 5 stars for the price and quality of the design. It is worthy the E-bike Lovers’ seal of quality and approval. 


You can see the mirrors “in action” during our next biking event as several E-bike Lovers have installed the mirror. If you buy one, we would be happy to install it during our next e-biking event.
