This bike helmets can be the answer to making riding bikes a little safer.
This product that is available on Kickstarter mimics the feature on cars. If cars have turn lights, why not bikes too, right?
Lumos is called the next generation bike helmet. It lets the user brighten the ride with integrated lights, brake, and turn signals. It helps to more effectively communicate intentions of the bike rider to drivers and other people around.
Some features include:
- Integrated lights – red lights at the back of the helmet are arranged to form a triangle, a commonly used warning symbol on the road. Meanwhile, white lights in front are arranged in a distinctive pattern in order to make you stand out better, whether it is from a driver’s rear or side view mirror, or from a car coming in the opposite direction. By being an integral part of your helmet, these lights are naturally higher, larger, more distinctive, and easier to see than traditional bicycle mounted lights.
- Turn signals – activate the turn signals via an included wireless remote. Once activated, bright yellow lights on the helmet turn on to form an arrow on the back, and a dash from the front to indicate the direction you wish to turn. Just press the button again to turn the signal off.
- Automatic brake lights – Lumos comes with an integrated accelerometer. It senses when you slow down, and automatically turns all the rear lights bright solid red to signal that you are braking. The brake lights activate any time you slow down so that you don’t have to think about it.
- Rechargeable battery
