Used to having a peak at the front, which gives more protection from wind and rain - not been able to find one so far. I feel a bit bare without it, but thrilled with having such reliable lights and indicators are just crazy!
Très bon produit vraiment très bien
I've had a lot of bike helmets over the years and this is hands down one of my favorites. It's snug and safe and the lights are a huge bonus as I ride a lot at night.
would recommend it to everyone. really like it. light weight. lights work great. the app is super cool
Purchased these for the whole family, as we bike commute a lot and as the days get shorter, the lights get more and more important, especially for the kids, as the tail-lights on smaller bikes are low, whereas helmet mounted lights are higher. We had attached lights to the back of their helmets before but it was quite a bit futzy and making sure the lights were pointing back and not down was sometimes challenging, so this is much better.
The helmet is comfortable (MIPS version) and with the visor attached (make sure it is attached FLAT with the velcro, otherwise a small fold can feel uncomfortable). If on a longer and much harder ride, the ventilation isn't as good as a top racing helmet, but it is still adequate and no racing helmet has the lights like this.
The lights are great, but if you're in high-noon sun in the summer, not the easiest to see. At dawn or dusk, they are amazing. Only wish the automatic brake lights would work properly with the remote mounted horizontally behind the bar (out of the wind), rather than on top. In the horizontal position behind the bar, it seems like every bump is a deceleration that turns on the brake lights, so I turned off the automatic brake lights and just use the turn signal. The kids love having the turn signal and say it's just like we are a car. Looking forward to having ALL the helmets in the family synchronized! That'll be great and keep the kids' eyes on the road and watching for cars rather than playing with and interacting with the remote.
i needed a replacement charging cable for my Lumos Matrix. ordering directly from Lumos was easy.
Just like others here, I often get compliments from other riders. They love the headlight and rear blinkers. It feels very comfortable and doesn’t get hot when I ride. I do wish the front light was a little brighter but otherwise it’s been great. I feel so much safer biking at night since I’m very visible. My first Lumos helmet and certainly won’t be the last.
Whenever I'm out on group rides, I get tonnns of compliments and questions about my helmet. It's the perfect ice breaker!
I must say I like the helmet. It is much more comfortable compared to my kickstart helmet. However, I would like the options to be able to make the led light bigger. I actually like the big led light of the kickstart helmet with the comfort of this ultra.
My lumos ultra is everything I have wanted in a bike helmet - comfortable, smart, and not having to remember to take my lights with me, just in case I am coming back in the dark, is just fantastic. This lighting is bright, and the light options also good, and I get a lot of questions from other cyclists about where I got the helmet. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have a bigger profile for the lighting switch on the back of the helmet, so it is easier to feel/find and turn on while you are riding. Other than that I love it.
Ever since Lumos came to light (Ha! Ha!) I purchased every model its HKG-based think tank came up with. I really enjoyed the very first model, and it did save my skull in a recent biking accident! I was not so keen about the Matrix - only used it once, and when the latest model was being solicitated for investment, I totally understood the road & conclusion Lumos had come to. This is the very best (yet). Perfect balance between weight, style and functionality. Bravo! I use it on every ride since. Only one suggested improvement: Make it possible for the strap-buckle system to be easily removed and washed. Cycling long ride in hot Texas means salt accumulate on the nylon straps!
I've been waiting this for a while and when it arrived..It definitely was MORE! than I expected. Build quality and Remote control is really responsive. Will buy it again soon!
I hav been using the helmet for half a year by now overall I’m happy with the product; improve visibility and safety of my ride. I ride on cargo bike with 2 dogs in front. The safety is not just for me but for my fur kids. The helmet not only gives the visibility but also clearly share the direction of my ride to car drivers helping us more predictable to share the road.
The lumos ultra helmet provide 360 degrees of protection, from its impact resistance construction to its programmable lights (ie. rear, sides and front) making the rider total visible to onlookers. Couldn't have made a better Ultra decision.
Well finished, high quality and just all round comfortable. Love it.
I love my Lumos Ultra. I feel well lit up and visible. The turning signals are a definite bonus.
It is comfortable, lightweight and the colour is fabulous.
I love my Lumos helmet! It fits great, it’s lightweight and it keeps me visible, even to people who do not want to see me coming! I highly recommend it!
Very Happy with Helmet!
I bought a medium MIPS helmet with the remote for the indicators in Monte Carlo. I think the helmet colouring looks fantastic, very distinctive. The lights on the helmet are very bright and I appreciate the different flashing patterns to grab attention and the fact you can tweak them further. The helmet fits very well, adjusted to my head size and is very comfortable. Overall I'm very pleased with this helmet and would but another one without hesitation.
My helmet is a Lumos Ultra. He is very comfortable, durable and really cool! Love the technology and style. Everything I would ever like...many thanks!
Ordered on Kickstarter and I’d happily pay double for this helmet. Makes you super visible and even has an app and integrates with Apple Watch amazing fit and an essential if you cycle alot
I purchased two helmets (Lumos Ultra) and just love them. I am going to buy two more for the rest of my family. They are comfortable, durable and really cool! Love the technology and style. Top class company...many thanks!
My Lumos Ultra helmet fits better than any helmet I have owned. It's a fun colorway too! Best of all, I am very pleased that I got the upgrade to the Lumos Remote. Being able to signal turns like a car makes me feel much safer and more noticeable especially in the darkening days of autumn.
Lumos is a solid helmet, very comfortable, adjustments are perfect, features are great for safety and I feel very protective.
