Quality/Price

Nice quality for the price, works fine and has a really long battery life duration.
I put 4 star and not 5 because the bands even the largest one are not enough for my Cube Kathmandu Pro and I have to really expand the band till it limits.

Outstanding customer service

once again, Lumos has provided outstanding customer service. I love these helmets and I'm now on my fourth one. Loving the new bright lime green.

Lumos Ultra replacement padding

Brilliant! The replacement kit includes replacement Velcro as well as the pads. Everything you could possibly need!

Great helmet and visibility

As the title says! Will add that it’s one of the most comfortable helmets I’ve ever owned and doesn’t feel like I’m wearing one. Thrilled with my decision to purchase this. Do the same!

Unsatisfactory function

My remote doesn‘t work well. The battery lasts only 4 weeks, and it often has no connection to the helmet. In this condition it has no practical use for me. Poor quality.

Schlecht anzubringen

Die Klebe Punkte und das Netz sind sehr schwer anzubringen, das Netz hält nicht an den Klebe punkten, ich kann jeden nur abraten es zu bestellen.

Awesomeness

My whole family use Lumos helmets and we love them. Comfortable and lightweight. Very pleased with our purchase.

Saved my bacon/brain

This is my second Lumos, I was using (and loving) the Matrix for almost two years before this helmet came out and I decided to upgrade to the MIPS version. My e-Bikes are all Class 3 and I usually ride 28-31 MPH. The turn signals are take the fear out of turns by loudly alerted motorists my intentions. Last December I was hit by a slow moving car and I banged my head on the pavement and the helmet performed as expected. My brain loves Lumos and you will too.

Every cyclist should have one

Brilliantly designed, high quality, comfortable – I feel much safer on the roads with it.

Great design, good visibility, short battery

I really like the design. The helmet is light, le lights brights and great ideas to have different types of lights flashing set up offer to user to choose from.

Having the turning light also set above the eye to indicate is genius.

I would have like to have handlebars mount that could be permanently secured to the handlebar instead of the 2 plastic rings.

Thank you to have the lumos remote having the same charger device as the helmet.. but as I was not sure the remote control was doing the emergency brakes, I bought the other remote which needs usb-C charger.
PS: you do not need to buy another remote as the one included is already doing the job perfectly.

Would have been great if the helmet had integrated secured storage area to place the remote control when not cycling. As unfortunately in cities (like London), the remote has to be removed each time you leave the bike alone or the remote might be stolen.

I don't like the turning light sounds. Too loud.

Desappointed with the battery life. It is clearly state on the description it is 3 to 6h... Which I thought was food... But then you realise that you need to charge the helmet and remote every 2/3 days.

Also when there is no battery: there is no pre-alert. When off battery, The helmet will bip only 3 times and switch off immediately.

Overall it is an helmet I would definitely recommend. And that help me to make me more safe on commuting cycling. The dislike part are more for constructive feedback and future amelioration possible.

Excellent Helmet!

This helmet ticked all the boxes for me, especially in the visibility category.
The turn signals work great with the App. I have not used them with the handle bar button.
The visor is very useful in the windy conditions that I tend to ride in.
Looking forward to any additional enhancements to the app.

Great MIPS Bicycle Helmet

The Lumos bicycle helmet is well made and is of high quality. I have a large round head. For me, it is a little uncomfortable to wear above my temples because the shape of the helmet is more oval shaped than round. The technology (lights) work fine.

Great Lights / One Missing Feature

I ordered the 4 pack of Lumos Firefly lights. I have the Ultra eBike helmet and the remote.

No complaints about the quality of the lights, their integration with the helmet and remote, or the integration of the entire system with the app.

All the lights must be individually powered on ... but, the lights can be programmed to all turn off when one component of the linked system is powered off.

All lights have a white light in the center, a circle of yellow lights, and a circle of red lights. What lights are available depends on their location assignment in the app. LF/C/RF/LR, etc. The rear lights can be programmed to act as tail lights (red flashing or steady), brake lights (red), and turn signals (yellow).

The lights assigned to the front positions can only be programmed for white light (on, flash, off) and yellow turn signals. There is no option for the lights assigned to the front to be a running light (steady yellow). With a steady yellow/blinking turn signals yellow option the lights could also be used as side marker lights.

Best helmet ever, and quite a conversation piece!

I recently wore my new Lumos Matrix helmet and got so many compliments on how cool and practical it was! What a great invention!!!!!!

I have not received my bicycle helmet (after 22 days).

I have not received my bicycle helmet after 22 days. 8 days ago I contacted support. It would be okay, was the message at the time. Haven't heard anything since.

Great customer service

I bought a replacement charging cable for my fantastic Lumos Helmet, the item was slightly delayed on delivery but Lumos staff were ever so reassuring and professional throughout… will definitely recommend Lumos to colleagues, friends and family. Thank you.

Great product

Simply, clever solution

Joke

The ordered I did not obtain merchandises under 2 months, they cannot answer a letter. I recommend it to nobody that let it be shopping laterally.

Good with further wishes

In terms of fit and weight, it's an improvement on my Matrix, which I analysed as having become electronic waste far too soon due to the faulty design of the switch. I also had the impression that the battery on the new Ultra E-Bike needs to be charged more quickly. I think the visor is great for protection, but at the same time it gets windier around the eyes and touches the nose, so there is still room for improvement. I hope that this helmet will be in use for longer and that the technology is robust and durable.

Yours sincerely
