Visibility is paramount to cyclist safety. The Lumos Helmet is integrated with super bright white LEDs in the front and solid red LEDs in the back to ensure you stand out on the road. Triangular shape of the back lights help others gauge their distance from you better.
Currently the helmet comes in a one size fits most ADULT size similar to other helmets currently in the market.
My Husban love it !! He says was the best Christmas present
Please be aware that there is a known issue with the break lights. This is not mentioned on their site for obvious reasons. All the lights on the helmet work fine. That is until you turn on ‘Warning lights’ in the app. Then the lights have a mind of their own. They will go from flashing to solid for no reason. This also drains the battery. It was suggested I turn down the sensitivity bar in the app. This made no difference.
I have contacted customer support regarding this issue and got a response from Monique Van Kollenburg regarding this issue.
‘The automatic warning lights are still in beta mode. It currently relies on the motion sensor in the remote to detect deceleration of the bicycle, and whilst we are constantly updating the algorithms to detect braking more accurately, we have not yet achieved the accuracy we are aiming for.’
If are looking to buy this helmet for the break light feature then please don’t. If however you want to spend £150+ on a helmet with lights then this is the one for you. But there are cheaper one out there. Just a shame they offer the break lights, then tell you they don’t work after you’ve purchased the helmet.
