Fun and Functional!

This helmet is simply cool. The light features increase visibility of and for myself, and the MIPS design ensures safety and comfort.

Remote doesn’t work

Do not buy this product. It doesn’t work and the support team are incredibly slow to support.

Not received anything and no messages

Crazy that I have been asked for a review but have not received my helmet. No contact except for the initial confirmation email.

Excellent product and service

Excellent service from point of order to delivery was quick and and smooth. The helmet is a great piece of kit and purchased to replace one that was broken following a cycling accident where I walked away without head injury despite a hard fall to the ground. Indicators and in my opinion more importantly the brake light are super and help this product stand out from the crowd.

Ultra Visor

Good visor, but...

...a little bit too short. Should be 10 - 15 mm longer to better protect from sun.
In addition I would expect that it is part of the helmet. Without the visor the helm is not complete.
What I like is the style, it is made like the visor of a base cap.

We bought this helmet for our son as a birthday gift and he seems to be very please with it which makes us happy. Our reason not to give 5 stars is due to the delivery process. We know you say delivery could take from 4 to 10 days, but we were hopeful it would not take the full 10 days since we are also located in California. Delivery actually took 11 days. We placed the order on 8/21 and were notified that a label was created on 8/24, 3 days later. We thought this meant we would be getting our product 2 or 3 days later, but instead delivery took place til 9/1, 11 days after date of ordering it. We would have liked to have the helmet in our possession sooner. We are hoping the quality of your product and service in the future can make us change this rating to 5 stars.

Remote Lite

works as expected

My Kick start helmet was part of a used trike purchase. No remote and using my phone was awkward. This little remote triggers the turn signal with out occupying too much space and my phone is stored safely in my bag. You must remember to cancel the signal after your turn.

Aktuell der beste Helm.

Hatte einen Unfall mit dem Kickstarter Lumos Ultra, dann war sofort klar: ich brauche denselben Helm wieder! Leider gibt es weniger Farbnuancen als bei Kickstarter.

Can’t Miss Me Now

The Lumos helmets are lightweight and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The front and rear lights make my presence on the road very obvious and the turn signal are a great feature. Great product.

Disappointed

I purchased the Lumos helmet with the remote lite. It has lasted only one and a half years from purchase. I have changed th battery twice. The battery that came with the remote lasted only a couple of months so I purchased a new battery. This one worked for a few months but now the remote does not work. I put in a new battery but it still does not work. I do not leave the remote outside on my bike - I bring it inside (so it doesn't get stolen and it is not exposed to the elements for long periods of time). This is the reason I purchased this helmet. There are other helmets on the market with lights embedded in the helmet but the lumos had the signal feature. Very disappointed in the lack of longevity. Not good from a sustainability perspective either as these batteries and the remote are now garbage.

Coolest Helmet ever

I absolutely love this helmet. The look the feel and the brightness of the led's because I ride mostly when it's dark to avoid most traffic. So easy and quick to charge. I just wish they had the MIPS version in stock. LOL Also, please make a knight rider version!! That would be tops!!!

Ultra Bug Net
Randal Rhodes
Superior workmanship. Fit was perfect.

Take your time and place the Velcro pad’s in the correct location, and the big net fits perfectly. I ride on the cornfield lined country roads and the bugs get pretty bad in the fall, highly recommend adding this to your helmet.

genialer Helm

kein lästiges Umstecken der Lichter am Fahrrad - Helm und Beleuchtung in einem, so wird auch das Tragen des Helms zur Selbstverständlichkeit

Great helmet

I'm quite satisfied with my new matrix helmet, I'm way more visible than before, and it's really great to do not have to use my arm to announce that I will turn. The only negative points I would have are that when I received my helmet, some straps to attach the pads were unsticked (maybe because of this summer heat). I had to use the spare ones happily delivered too. My second point is that my remote controller was totally discharged, and I failed to charge it with the helmet because of the sticker. So I thought it wasn't paired with the helmet and it's not practical to find how to pair it. The paper documentation only gives an hyperlink, and there is nothing in the app. Besides that, it's really great helmet!

It’s funny that I got sent an email to ask for a review. I ordered the hamlet 3 wells ago and haven’t gotten any shipment notification and obviously haven’t receive the order so I c

Second one

Much improved mounting method for directional signals. Also good to see standard usb charging port instead of the prior magnet. Got this one after bad crash and dented helmet….better than dented head!

Great fit

We received the helmets and they fit perfect and they feel like they will protect us well.

Great fit for a large head!

Like the movie says, I got "en enoormus noggin."
Specifically, I have a "long oval" head that usually wears a US 7 3/4 or larger. I was glad to find that the Lumos Ultra XL fit my head comfortably. Because of the "long oval" part, I may eventually look into supplementary padding on the sides ...maybe. It's certainly stable while wearing it, so maybe not - I'll see where I am in a year.

The lights give me a better sense of visibility. Only driven several times after dark - like the headlight, but don't think it's a replacement for a regular bike light. Also, haven't used the fancy-dancy turn signals much yet, but they certainly can't hurt!

Looking forward to getting this working side-by-side with the Firefly lights I Kickstarted - that should be a much more visible combo. I'm planning to be up to 5 days a week bike commuting by the spring, these lights and helmet should definitely help!
