Are Lumos helmets worth it?

Here are 3 reasons why they are

Reason #1: The brightest and most visible helmets in the market.

360 Degree Visibility: All our helmets are designed with visibility in mind. This is why we’ve made it a point to bend our LEDs such that they can be seen from all angles. This is more costly to do, but we feel that being seen from all angles is essential in keeping you safe on your ride.  

Super bright LEDs: We’ve also made sure that our LEDs are bright enough to be seen by motorists, which is why we’ve made sure that all our helmets can be seen from 1000 meters away.  

Fun Fact: Having such bright LEDs takes a toll on battery life which is why we use bigger batteries than most brands, and also provides a heating problem which we have to engineer around to ensure that your helmet stays cool.

Reason #2: Beyond Crash Test certified  

When you buy a helmet from Lumos, you can be darn sure that your helmet will give you the best protection a helmet can provide. 

We thoroughly crash test each helmet design from every angle to make sure that you get the protection you need in any scenario. All our helmets surpass the standards, but they didn’t come easy.  

For example, Ultra comes with an internal nylon skeleton that helps it to stay in one piece which helps spread the forces out more evenly. This is a premium feature that is not found in many helmets under $200.

Reason #3: Turn signals and brake lights  

All our helmets are capable of displaying turn signals and brake lights. If you ride around traffic, especially in urban areas with a dense car population, being predictable is extremely important.  

When you’re making a turn, or slowing down, these are important events that motorists around you should know about so that they can react accordingly.
