Conspicuity is the name of the game. Be seen, and eliminate the guessing by letting traffic around you know which way you’re turning.

This is mostly a review of their warranty requirements, which feel really unnecessary. One side of my helmet doesn't light up at all when fully charged and LUMOS support claimed it was unfixable, making me eligible for a replacement. But they want me to ship my unfixable helmet back in its original packaging, plastic padding included, and take it to the city post office to trade it for a new one. I didn't have room to keep all of that packaging in my tiny apartment; it's recycled. I paid for a fancy, expensive helmet that could be sold for less if they're a successful company, and it seems to have not been tested before shipping out. If this can't be fixed, why not let me keep the broken helmet to keep someone else safe?

Riding in traffic is an art of perception, awareness, projection and accumulated experience. This is the age of technology-distracted drivers and there seems to be more than a little increase in driver aggression and reaction. It is a simmering cauldron of catastrophe. Every year 45,000 bicyclists are injured and an additional 800 are killed by cars. This doesn't mean riding a bike is treacherous or highly risky, but it does make it really important to BE SEEN. I bought the Lumos lightweight kickstarter without the turn signals and brake light. It is very lightweight and fit like a dream. On my first ride I was thrilled to see how much attention I attracted. I use the slow blink mode for maximum visual effect and battery longevity. Oh, and this was in the middle of a sunny day in California. It might be my imagination, but it felt like I was calming traffic by making each car aware of me. I'm an experienced cyclist and I know my way around cars and potentially risky situations and I noticed a change in traffic behavior toward me at times when I really needed to be noticed, like left turns in big intersections and changing lanes. I'm not sold on upgrading to directionals because it looks too dispersing for a motorist. You just need to be seen. Plus the upgrade has a shorter battery charge life, as low as 1.5 hours. My rides are often longer. But any of the Lumos helmets are better than anything else available. Built in lights display better than attaching lights.
I bought the 'lite' version of the lumos helmet because I couldn't justify the additional pricing for directionals/brake lights. I have been ecstatic about the helmet, visibility to drivers is now at cycle level (my existing lights) and above - due to the helmet. I feel more confident riding and being seen by car drivers. Charge lasts >3hrs, so I have to plug it back in every three+ days (I ride ~1hr per day), and since I have yet to take it on that long of a single ride, it is not a problem. Other riders ask where I got the helmet.
Seems to work fine - during the daytime the lights on the front could be a little brighter (during dark they are fine) Helmet fit and finish is good. Comfort is good
Thank you for your review!
