package includes: 1 mirror, mount on either side
(traffic side recommended.)
Bar tape not included.
Whether or not you've used a mirror before, you'll find The Italian Road
Bike Mirror™ to be much more than a typical bicycle mirror.
These mirrors are made of highly scratch resistant optical quality glass
that displays a clear, sharp image that could never be matched by any
kind of plastic. Even in this age of mass production, each mirror
is hand cut from a large piece of convex glass. Then the edge of
each and every mirror is beveled, again by hand, followed by a thorough
inspection. Only the ones that pass are allowed to leave the
factory. And yes, they truly are made in Italy.
The housing, also made in Italy, is made of a special aerospace grade
rubber compound, not plastic. Yet the complete bicycle mirror, housing and
all, weighs only 54 grams.
We're really picky about
quality. Before discovering The Italian Road Bike Mirror™, we tried many
other bicycle mirrors. We tried clamp on, clip on, strap on, you name it,
even bending and twisting the mounting brackets on other mirrors in an attempt
to get them to work. This is the only mirror that really worked without
looking stupid, coming out of position, or vibrating. There's one
mirror being sold these days that looks similar at first glance, but it's made
completely of plastic and sticks out much further than The Italian Road Bike
Mirror™. Considering the money you spent on your bike, only a quality
component will do. Here at AVT, we don't want any junk on our
bikes, and we're pretty sure you don't want any junk on yours either.

This mirror was invented and
is made in a little Italian village by a gentleman named Mario (his real name).
Mario first produced these bicycle mirrors in 1996. Since then, they have
become hugely popular, especially in Italy. Although he was born in the
1930's, he still rides 12,000 kilometers per year. In his younger days,
Mario won many races in Italy, including the Italian National Championship.
Only a dedicated road cyclist could design a mirror like this. We thank
him for his wonderful mirror, and We think you will too.
Everyday Riding, Commuting, and Training
Thousands of Italian Road
Bike Mirrors are now in use all over the world for all types of riding.
Its nice to know when cars are passing you safely, instead of just being at
their mercy. It's also easy to tell when you can take the whole road, and
when you can't, without looking over your shoulder all the time. When
stopped at a light, it's nice to know that the car behind is really going to
stop. We've heard many times from cyclists that after using this mirror,
they never want to ride without it.
Having this mirror on your
road bike is similar to using a gear position indicator. It's an
instrument that provides you with a convenient way to get important information
without having to drastically change your forward attention, such as physically
looking at your gears or turning around to see what or who is behind you.
Training and Racing
Racers find that The Italian
Road Bike Mirror™ gives them a definite tactical advantage, especially in
criteriums where there's not a whole lot of time to be physically turning
around. They're great in road races too, giving you lots of advance notice
that competition is coming. When another cyclist tries to close a gap from
behind, you'll know they're coming in plenty of time to do something about it.
Because The Italian Road Bike Mirror™ is inconspicuous, you won't give up your
strategic advantage by having some big mirror hanging off your race bike, or by
looking over your shoulder. Knowing when there's no one behind you is also
really helpful so you can rest up for your next attack. It's quite an
advantage to know when your competition is there, without them knowing that you
