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.

When can I expect my helmet?


Generally we ask to allow 4 to 10 business days for your order to be delivered. It may take longer during peak seasons.

Once your order has been handed over to the carrier for delivery, you will receive a shipment notification email with tracking details. This enables you to track the progress of your order and get an estimated delivery date.

Can I return the helmet?


If you want to return or exchange anything you bought from us, NO PROBLEM! You have 30 days from the date of shipping to make sure what you ordered from Lumos is right for you.

Just note that any product you return needs to be in new condition and you'll have to cover return shipping costs.

My second helmet - its that great.

I know people can see me when I ride. I live on narrow hilly roads in Northern California, so visibility is important. Cars see my helmet and actually go around, rather than driving close by like they do with regular lights. I've had truck drivers thank me for having a light high up on my head, rather than just tail lights. They can actually see me. This is my second helmet for a different bike. It is awesome.

Outstanding Product

This easy to fit helmet is comfortable and stable on my head without having to overly tighten the chin strap. There’s lots of airflow to keep me cool. The LED lights are a BIG plus and increase my visibility to motorists tremendously. The charging system is easy to use and battery life is excellent. It even has turn signals, although it is recommended to continue to use hand signals since some motorists won’t understand what the flashing lights on the helmet mean. Product pricing is in line with competitors but has more features and thus presents better value for the money. 5 stars! Ordering online was a breeze although color selection was limited when I purchased mine. Delivery was very fast.

Great, solid helmet. Seems more people are looking at me as I ride - this really makes me feel safe. Love the turn signal - auto shuts off to. I was recommend this helmet by a ER doc friend who was impressed and has seen way too many accidents and highly recommended this. I'm glad I got it.
