The display is tethered by a flexible, steel, gooseneck that protects the exposed wires from 200+ mph speeds. The ultra-bright LED resides on a circuit board which is encapsulated on either side by thermal plastic. This display is overmolded to the gooseneck cable by a second layer of thermal plastic.
The active area is bendable to retain it's position in the sky and while putting on and off your helmet. This super bright LED (2600 mcd) is side visible up to 120 degrees and will not be missed in freefall if properly mounted. The unit mounts in the helmet forehead area and can be formed to contour the face. The LED is meant to be positioned just above the eye and not pointed into the eye.
Note: OPTIMA II users must have the No. I10501 OPTIMA II WITH LED CONNECTION PORT version with a MMCX jack on the side of the unit. The original Optima has this port standard.
