Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences between the Kickstart and Kickstart Lite helmets?


Kickstart Lite, as the name says, is our light version which offers you great visibility at a great price.


The Kickstart model adds turn signals (operated via the wireless remote, included in the box) and automatic warning lights.

Kickstart MIPS combines all that with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) which protects you from certain angled falls.

Rest assured: All our helmets - including the non-MIPS models - are crash-tested and safety-certified to the highest standards: CPSC (US) and EN1078 (Europe)

What is MIPS


Multi-Impact Protection System, or MIPS, is a helmet-integrated brain protection system designed to provide additional brain protection in the event of angled or rotational impacts. All MIPS certified helmets are tested to withstand an impact speed of up to 6.7 meters per second. All Lumos helmets, whether or not they are equipped with MIPS, are tested and certified according to US and EU standards.


Currently the following helmets are available with MIPS:

Kickstart Charcoal Black

Kickstart Electric Lime

Matrix Charcoal Black

Street Charcoal Black

How much do I pay for shipping?


For the contiguous US, UK and some EU countries shipping your helmet is FREE! For other locations as well as accessories, shipping is calculated based on your location and product upon checkout.

Drivers are giving me more room.

Bought this for my adult son after he was hit by a car this year while riding. Luckily he was not very seriously injured. He says the helmet is very comfortable and he notices drivers now are giving him more room. Anything that can bring attention to a bicyclist is great. As a parent, we would do anything to keep our kids safe and this is an inexpensive attempt at that.

Wish front light brighter

Love the fit of helmet and visibility of rider. Even with good light on my bike itself, I felt the light wasn’t enough on helmet unless on the road.

Lumos Helmet

Thank you for your review, Myfanwy! Our helmets are created to make YOU more visible on the road. It is plenty bright to BE seen, and is bright enough to light the road in front of you a little if you're in pitch blackness. The brightness is adjustable via the smartphone app so that customers who value brightness over longevity will have the option to increase the brightness.
