HindSight Edge rear view glasses launched by Physicist and Olympic champion

Not just for keeping an eye on upcoming traffic, a performance edge is promised in not having to look behind to cover attacks

Invented by physicist Alex Macdonald and developed with Rio 2016 Olympic gold medal-winning cyclist, Callum Skinner, HindSight says its Edge rear view glasses offer the dual promise of a performance edge and safer cycling.

HindSight co-founder, physicist and keen cyclist, Macdonald came up with the idea for the glasses after experiencing dangerous close-passing incidents on the roads. Unsatisfied with existing products, he decided to create a “more stylish and functional solution” which didn’t require any setup, maintenance or batteries.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
