The ultimate bicycle helmet with brake lights and turn signals to help cyclists stay safe and visible on the road.
It shouldn’t be difficult or inconvenient to take care of your basic safety as a cyclist. Yet we frequently forget or misplace our lights, and drivers are often frustrated at the difficulty in both seeing and predicting where some cyclists want to go on the road.
Lumos is a next generation bicycle helmet that addresses these issues. Featuring integrated brake and turn signal lights, Lumos helps you more effectively communicate your intentions to drivers and people around you.
Have you ever left the house or office without your lights? Or maybe you’ve had your lights stolen? Thanks to Lumos, as long as you have your helmet, you will always have your lights with you.
Red lights at the back of the helmet are arranged to form a triangle, a commonly used warning symbol on the road. White lights in front are arranged in a distinctive pattern in order to make you stand out better, whether it is from a driver’s rear or side view mirror, or from a car coming in the opposite direction.
By being an integral part of your helmet, these lights are naturally higher, larger, more distinctive, and easier to see than traditional bicycle mounted lights.
Have you ever wondered whether the car driver behind you understands (or even sees) the hand signal you just gave? Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you felt it was more important to have both hands on the handlebars than to continue holding out your hand to signal?
We did. Thats why we made turn signals an integral part of Lumos’s design. You activate the turn signals via an included wireless remote.
Once activated, bright yellow lights on the helmet turn on to form an arrow on the back, and a dash from the front to indicate the direction you wish to turn. Just press the button again to turn the signal off.
The remote is small and unobstructive. Mount the remote wherever makes the most sense for your bike and riding style and you’re good to go! The Lumos helmet will automatically pair with the remote whenever you are in close proximity to it.
Automatic brake lights
Lumos comes with an integrated accelerometer. It senses when you slow down, and automatically turns all the rear lights bright solid red to signal that you are braking. The brake lights activate any time you slow down so that you don’t have to think about it.
Lumos comes with an integrated rechargeable battery inside. Recharge with the included micro USB cable just like you would with your phone. If you use Lumos for 30 minutes every day, each charge will last about a week.
What if it rains we hear you ask? Well, we have you covered. You shouldn’t dunk Lumos into a pool, but Lumos is water resistant so you can take it out with you and stay safe come rain or shine.
Lumos meets the following bicycle helmet safety standards:
- CPSC in the United States (CPSC 16 CFR Part 1203)
- EN1078 in Europe
Lumos also meets all other requisite standards required of consumer electronic devices set by the FCC and CE.
