I keep hitting my stock mirrors and want to install more ADV specific mirrors.

What type of mirrors are in this picture?

Also, what specific mount is required to install them? Thanks

Those are Double Take mirrors. Then you use RAM arms to adjust them. You just need mounts that screw into your stock mirror brackets. All this can be had on most any online motorcycle store

You know them, you love them! Double Take Adventure mirrors have become a staple in the ADV community. They look great, are easy to adjust and are nearly indestructible!We've been running these mirrors on our bikes for years without a single failure... and we're hard on our bikes! Indestructible- Made from reinforced Zytel...

Im interested in getting a better view and my case I need mirrors that extend outward more so my view is not obstructed by my shoulders/elbows. Can the double Take's be setup more outward than OEM ones ??

I’m pretty sure you can get the ram arms up to 6” long. That should be more than enough to clear your shoulders.

Just ordered the double take mirrors from @Camel ADV with the left thread adapter needed for the throttle side.

I made this video to help those who are unsure which mirror from Doubletake to get. I have lots of experience with all their models.

I had the Double take and changed them for the Rotweiler.

I like the Rotweiler more but in offroad setting the view is limited and i'm running offroad setting all the time.

Not a perfect view but good enough and less sticking out of the handlebar.

Spoiler

So, I've given into the Double Take trend, noticing a number of Chinese imitations that appear to be mostly worthless (mostly because of cheap mounts) and decided to source mounts separately from the mirrors.  Although the Double Take Adventure mirrors were technically cheaper than the PSR equivalent, I opted for the PSR Denali's out of aluminum over the Double Take out of ABS plastic after watching a video of a guy readily snapping his off on a ride (when they should have been stowed).  Has anybody else tried the PSR Denali's <https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077BGMGJ5?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details> ?

?  I should have a firsthand review soon as it would have already been here if not for the snow lately.

I believe Double Take Mirror Bodies have a life time warranty.

"We will warranty the mirror body for the life of the product, but for obvious reasons cannot extend the same protection to the glass insert. We do sell the glass separately if you manage to break it. We also have a satisfaction guarantee—if you receive your mirror and aren't happy with it for any reason, you can return it for a refund."

Thanks!  That's certainly relevant.  I got my PSR Denali (only ordered one initially) yesterday and it appears to be of good quality, but the ball is not rubberized and required the application of heat shrink tubing (or a latex glove finger somebody else recommended) to have adequate friction to avoid movement.  The mirror element appears to show scratches easily, perhaps it's plastic or has some coating.

Have had neither of those problems with the DT mirrors.
