Making motorcyclists safer & more confident, improving visibility and the ride, saving lives.
Third eye design was founded on the belief that we can use technology to make the world a better, safer place.
We are starting one motorcycle at a time.
Third Eye Design, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets a wireless helmet brake and turn signal light centered on a patented, groundbreaking Radio Frequency (RF) communication protocol. Headquartered in Pittsford, NY, the company has launched its first product, a sophisticated wireless, helmet-mounted brake, and signal light. This exclusive technology allows almost all helmet battery power to be used for LED illumination instead of RF communication with the motorcycle. Our innovative technology provides for a feature-rich unit that is free from user intervention.
Third Eye Design believes in supporting US manufacturing and US jobs. That is why inView is proudly made in the USA for our North American Markets.
