Lumos Helmet (United States) - Press Release: Lumos Ultra will also come with an option to add MIPS. This is an extra safety feature that is built into the helmet to add protection against rotational motion transferred to the brain. Rotational motion affects the brain and increase the risk for minor and severe brain injuries.
Chips On Board (COB) is a method of LED packaging which has a number of advantages over more conventional technologies. It allows for a more compact footprint whilst delivering a higher intensity of light meaning you’ll be seen from further away. It is also what gives the lights a more uniform look. We like to think of it as Currently our Best LED technology.
It’s our most vented helmet yet. We’ve been listening to customer feedback and have paid very close attention to the way Ultra directs air through its internal venting system. We’ve created 3 enormous exhausts in the rear to ensure hot air gets pushed out helping to keep the rider cool whether on a commute or on a training session.
We’ve already done the initial crash tests on our beta units and they pass with plenty of safety margin to spare. We’re confident that Ultra will be one of the safest helmets on road even without the lights on.
When you ride, you must be prepared to ride in any weather. That's why Ultra is built to IPX6 standards, to withstand the elements and keep you riding bright, come rain or shine.
There are multiple benefits to wearing lights high up on the head. Firstly, it makes it possible to be seen more clearly by motorists on the road. You're less likely to encounter a situation where your lights are being blocked by parked cars or other things on the road. Secondly, by illuminating your head, it's much easier for motorists to see where you're looking and thus know approach more carefully.
For Kickstarter, we've decided to go crazy with colors. The beauty of pre-launching Ultra is that we get to lock down the exact quantities of colors and sizes so that we can optimise production, and therefore create more variants and ensure you find the perfect one.
The colors you see here are likely going to be limited to just Kickstarter. After the campaign ends, many of the colors here will NOT make it to retail. So if you see a color you like, now may be the only time to get it.
We will be gathering feedback throughout the campaign on what colors our backers would like to see. We have a few ideas already, such as metallic colors, country colors and possibly even 2-tone colors that change with different viewing angles.
Ultra is the helmet for everyone, from kids to even bigger kids. It is available in the sizes S, M-L and XL, and they are all equipped with a click-dial fit system to ensure that Ultra sits firmly yet comfortably on your head.
