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.
If your in the market for a new cycle helmet, your search is over. This is just the only one to buy. Everything works brilliantly, easy to pair with your phone. You get more thumbs up from bus and lorry drivers than you ever would in a car. They can see when your turning and when you stop. Drive past a few cars and watch people pointing at you helmet. Just pure envy!!!
They might have a 10k road bike but if they don’t have a hat like yours there just not cool. “Quote from some students”
Doesn’t get any better. Old boy being told he’s cool. If they ever make the same for a motorcycle well!!!!
I'm a taxi driver and saw a lady wearing one of these this morning. The red warning sign on the back first caught my attention but when the indicator came on at the approach to a junction I so impressed,these helmets are a revolution and should be made compulsory!
No they aren't cheap but you can't put a price on life,if you're a cyclist get one!
Love this helmet. Feel a lot safer on the roads with it on! The indicators are brilliant addition. Although there was a slight delay in its arrival the team notified me straight away and were very helpful.
Even though it is more expensive than similar products, you Are definitely getting a superior product.
Very happy customer!
