Ride the brightest with a Lumos Helmet
I love this helmet. Steep price sure but it also looks expensive haha. I could imagine speakers would be useful, especially since the helmet paired with a smart phone could a maps app (ex: Google maps) in order to heard directions.
The Helmet is very good indeed. It has everything a rider need for light especially for riding in the evening and early morning.
It would be more useful if it can be added a speaker to this helmet so that rider can also listen to music while riding the bike.
I like the Matrix not just for the fancy LED lights but also how it feels on my head! The programmable LED is very helpful when I cycles with my kids - the scrolling 'Cycling with Kids' at the back of my helmet helps to give cyclists what to expect when they overtake me. The L-R indicators also keeps me safe on the roads especially at intersections.
Lastly - seldom mentioned - is how it fits with those wearing glasses. There are other helmets with straps that bite into the spectacle frames but the Matrix doesn't have that issue.
Only CON - for future consideration - is the position of the ON-OFF button. With spectacles on - it takes a bit of manoeuvring of the fingers between the strap, specs frame - to reach the button. Of course I can take it off before pressing the button - but do consider changing to position of the switch!
Premium design!!! And it feels solid! The LED is super bright especially at night. Their Customer Service is also Phenomenal, quick and fun to deal with. I just can’t wait for Lumus to integrate more smart technology like fall detection, phone calls and music. But overall they’re great product
I am very happy about my new Lumos Matrix helmet! The design is great and I truly had fun customizing my backlight designs!
I did not get to bike with it yet but I can already tell it's going to be great. I have the Torch Apparel T2 and I feel like the Lumos Matrix helmet is a step up.
There are extra paddings to customize the helmet to your size which makes a big difference. If I had to nitpick, I would make paddings that match the color of the helmet (black). Also, I was a little saddened to know that MIPS was not available internationally.
Overall, I feel like this is one of the best investments someone can make if you are biking at night!
