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.

THRILLED!

I am so pleased with my new Kickstart helmet. I have gone for two rides and it is working very well. I would have preferred if Lumos shipped directly to Malaysia, but it worked to have it shipped to a friend who shipped it to me. The AppleWatch sync is in beta testing and I find it to be inconsistent, I do hope it will work more consistently in the future, however, the remote works perfectly. Another bit of feedback would be to have a double charger (one USB with two ports) so that the remote and helmet could be charged at the same time. Lastly, I failed to realize that the brake lights needed to be set up - no big deal, I checked the FAQ's and it's really to roll!

Thank you for posting a review Leigh! Out of the box the automatic brake lights are deactivated so your helmet will have a longer battery life. Feel free to drop us a message at support@lumoshelmet.co if you would like assistance with the Apple Watch, brake lights or anything else. Ride safe!

Worth the money

I feel much safer wearing this helmet on my commute. It’s not noticeably heavier than my previous helmet. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy it again. If you ride around any road traffic, I would recommend this helmet for increasing your visibility. Although, I don’t use the turn signals. I kind of wish there was a cheaper model that is all lit up all the time and didn’t have turn signals.

Amazing Visibility!

I purchased this as a gift for my wife. She is an avid cyclist and gear junkie. My biggest concern prior to purchasing was the weight of the helmet, especially compared to her Giro Aether, I expected her to say “Thanks, but it is too heavy”. Much to my surprise she loves it! I knew the safety features of the led’s would be well received, but thought the aero look and weight might be a problem. Not so! Her Giro has been shelved and she raves about her new helmet….constantly…..while we are riding! The tech is amazing, turn signals, brake lights and headlights! I’m sure one of the major players will be after Lumos soon. Thank you for making the ULTIMATE safe bicycling helmet!

Great Helmet

Great helmet. Fits well and easy to use out of the box. Haven't used it with the App or Smart watch but as a BRIGHT helmet - it's fantastic.
