A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Riding a motorcycle is all about freedom and adventure, but there’s a few areas where stock motorcycles are seriously lacking – and we’re fixing them all with just one smart tool that is patent-pending!
Very often, stock motorcycle mirrors don’t offer a perfect view, vibrate at high speeds creating a blur, and are too far in so your view is partially blocked by your own shoulder.
The patent-pending MirrorLok is a multi-functional accessory which solves all of these problems: with the MirrorLok installed, your mirrors are repositioned, increasing the field of vision and giving you a better rear-view perspective as well as minimizing the vibration of the mirror.
But that's not all: we love ergonomic, multi-purpose designs, so the MirrorLok also doubles as a helmet lock! An easy push-button lock will keep your helmet in place, protected from falling off or being stolen while you're enjoying a walk or a coffee off your motorcycle. Worried about your gear? We've got that covered, too: using an additional cable, you can easily secure your riding jacket to the lock at the same time.
How does it work? MirrorLok is made from machined aluminum, making it sturdy and reliable but keeping it elegant with a black powder coat finish. MirrorLok is oval-shaped with smooth, rounded edges and measures 1"X3"X1" weighing 3 ounces.
The Mirror Extension Function: easily installed on your handlebars with the hardware provided, MirrorLok extends your mirrors outward creating a better field of vision.
The Mirror Vibration Canceling Function: From road conditions to tires to engine size, everyone's ride is different. MirrorLok is engineered to absorb and change those vibrations, resulting in a steady view. The MirrorLok design isolates the mirror from the bike, creating space needed to address the blurred reflection. Vibrations are absorbed and softened through a series of cushioning polyurethane O-rings. The rider's mirror view is dramatically improved, even when road conditions are not.
Helmet Lock Function: MirrorLok has a spring-loaded shackle placed at one end of the tool. It uses a push-button lock and key, making your helmet safe and secure while you're off the motorcycle.
Gear Lock Function: With an additional cable, you can also lock your riding jacket to the MirrorLok. No more clumsy gear lugging around restaurants and coffee shops!
Add On: if three functions weren't enough, we're also offering an optional add on to the MirrorLok: a Sena or a Go Pro camera mount!
MirrorLok can be easily installed by removing the mirror post from your handlebars and attaching the MirrorLok with the included hardware. the mirror post is then reinstalled using the original hardware directly on the MirrorLok.
MirrorLok helps you see better, feel safer and keeps your helmet and riding gear secure. Leave those details to us, and make it all about the ride!
