Whether you’re an avid cyclist or simply enjoy an occasional ride, it’s safe to say that you’ve experienced close calls riding alongside traffic. It could be that you’re riding in a car’s blind spot or there is difficulty seeing your turn signals during a nightly commute. Whatever the case may be, safety is a major concern for cyclists in metropolitan areas.


Introducing Lumos – the world’s first smart bike helmet that “beautifully integrates lights, hard brakes, turns signals, and helmet into a cohesive whole.”


Recently awarded Beazley’s coveted “Transport Design of the Year” award, Lumos is “the ultimate protection for city riders.” Equipped with a full range of LED lighting, this ergonomically designed smart helmet comes with an intuitive app and a wireless handlebar remote that allows you to visually communicate with traffic. With a battery that lasts six hours on flashing mode (3 hours on solid mode), the Lumos helmet is a one-size fits all safety shell.


Armed with 10 bright white LED’s in the front and 16 bright red LED’s in the rear, this revolutionary smart helmet illuminates its red lights when you’re slowing down (similar to a car’s brake lights when coming to a stop). This lets the car behind you know that you’re coming to a stop and to prepare accordingly. There are 16 additional bright orange LED turn signal lights that are controlled via Lumos’ easy-to-use wireless handlebar remote. The helmet’s bright turn signals make your presence known on the road and support hard-to-see hand signals.


The wireless handlebar remote, according to Lumos, lasts for months before needing a recharge. If you use the helmet for 30 minutes every day, it’ll last about a week without needing a recharge. Taking close to two hours to fully charge via a magnetic USB cable, Lumos is fairly low maintenance. Available in three colors (Pearl White, Charcoal Black, Cobalt Blue) and weighing 440g (about 1 lb), this helmet is a lightweight solution.


Lumos meets the following bicycle helmet safety standards:

  • CPSC in the U.S. (CPSC 16 CFR Part 1203)
  • EN1078 in Europe

From the water resistant wireless handlebar remote to its intuitive companion app that allows users to monitor battery life, this bike helmet saves lives. Engineers wanted to solve a major problem: cyclists felt invisible while riding on city streets. They also knew that drivers felt frustrated due to the “difficulty in seeing or predicting the movement of cyclists riding on the road with them.” Their solution: the revolutionary Lumos bike helmet.
