abunda_amazon_reviews I wear this while riding my Boosted Board. I've had at least 3 motorists stop me and say "Thanks for wearing that helmet!" and a few bikers asking where I got it. I really feel 10x more visible on the road. The only reason I'm deducting a star is because of the price. I would prefer a cheaper helmet with just lights and no remote turn signal controller. Since I ride with my boosted board, holding the turn signal remote by itself feels clumsy, and mounting it to the boosted remote is too bulky. If I can find time, I'd love to design and 3D-print a new boosted board housing with a socket that the signal remote can lock into.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 2, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Excellent visibility.

I happened to find the Lumos helmet through a Facebook ad and further viewing of their Kickstarter posting. I don't financially support Kickstarter projects, mostly because getting a concept from design stage to broad manufacturing is a challenging and generally months long process, of which many great ideas on Kickstarter don't make it or take forever getting to market. But upon seeing it on Amazon, I knew it was real and they had gotten through the design and manufacturing hurdles. The helmet is basically indistinguishable from a conventional high end bicycle helmet, with the exception of the LEDs and turn signal control. The helmet arrived from Amazon well packaged with an outer shipping box and an inner retail box in bright orange. There was no frustration getting it out of the package, it just slid out on a little platform and it was basically ready to go. Adjusting the helmet to my head size was super easy. There is a dial at the back bottom of the helmet, twist it and you can shrink or enlarge the circumference of the helmet. You can even use it to tighten the helmet to your head, and then loosen it when taking the helmet off. It reminds me of high quality construction hard hats, in this respect. If you have ever used an adjustable hard hat, this particular sizing system will be quite familiar. I don't think I have a huge head, but the helmet is just about my head size with little extra slack in the adjuster. Like some others have commented, I would like to have the helmet be a little larger with a little more play in the adjustment mechanism, but this isn't preventing me from using the helmet or it being comfortable. I don't have my exact head size, so you'll just have to take my word for it. This helmet is a little heavier than my Bell Spectrum that this replaces. I also expect that to be normal considering that this helmet has integrated battery, LEDs and a Bluetooth module. The helmet, in spite of the extra weight, which again, isn't much, is well balanced, so you don't really notice that you have a bunch of LEDs at the rear of your head and some more at the front above your eyes. My helmet arrived with a nearly fully charged battery. One of the first things I did upon unboxing was to download the iPhone app and pair the helmet with the app. Read the included instructions. Pairing with my phone went smoothly, but you have one multi-function power button on the back of the helmet with with to turn it on, cycle between the flashing or always on modes and to put the helmet into Bluetooth pairing mode. It helps to have read the instructions and know how that button acts or how long to hold it down to activate the pairing mode. Once paired, the software indicated that the helmet was 95% charged. The turn signal switch that mounts on the bike was a different story. It didn't respond when I unpackaged it and had to immediately charge it for it to work with the helmet and register with the mobile app. With sufficient battery power and the turn signal switch charging, I used this opportunity to update the firmware since the app indicated that there was a firmware update. This process went very smoothly, although there is minimal graphical feedback in the app when a firmware update is being applied. The app basically indicates that a firmware update is needed, allows you to start the process with the press of a button and then the app shows you status information in text, but there are few if any progress bars. The firmware update took less than 5 minutes, and when done the app indicates that you are up-to-date. With the firmware update completed and the turn signal indicators charged, all worked well with the helmet. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be noticed by drivers and anyone else on the road with you. Whether you use the flashing mode or the solid mode, you will definitely be seen by others from a long way away. The turn signal will be great when sharing the road with drivers. I always feel unbalanced when using hand signals to indicate turns, but this keeps my hands on the handle bar, with means much greater control and stability. It will be interesting to know what the future has in store with this helmet since it has the ability to be firmware updated. I highly recommend this to any urban cyclist and night cyclist as one of the most comprehensive lights and helmets available.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 16, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;This helmet is a game changer.;;J.

My helmet arrived with a nearly fully charged battery. One of the first things I did upon unboxing was to download the iPhone app and pair the helmet with the app. Read the included instructions. Pairing with my phone went smoothly, but you have one multi-function power button on the back of the helmet with with to turn it on, cycle between the flashing or always on modes and to put the helmet into Bluetooth pairing mode. It helps to have read the instructions and know how that button acts or how long to hold it down to activate the pairing mode. Once paired, the software indicated that the helmet was 95% charged. The turn signal switch that mounts on the bike was a different story. It didn't respond when I unpackaged it and had to immediately charge it for it to work with the helmet and register with the mobile app. With sufficient battery power and the turn signal switch charging, I used this opportunity to update the firmware since the app indicated that there was a firmware update. This process went very smoothly, although there is minimal graphical feedback in the app when a firmware update is being applied. The app basically indicates that a firmware update is needed, allows you to start the process with the press of a button and then the app shows you status information in text, but there are few if any progress bars. The firmware update took less than 5 minutes, and when done the app indicates that you are up-to-date. With the firmware update completed and the turn signal indicators charged, all worked well with the helmet. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be noticed by drivers and anyone else on the road with you. Whether you use the flashing mode or the solid mode, you will definitely be seen by others from a long way away. The turn signal will be great when sharing the road with drivers. I always feel unbalanced when using hand signals to indicate turns, but this keeps my hands on the handle bar, with means much greater control and stability. It will be interesting to know what the future has in store with this helmet since it has the ability to be firmware updated. I highly recommend this to any urban cyclist and night cyclist as one of the most comprehensive lights and helmets available.

BEST HELMET EVER
You know how you buy something and you think, "why did I buy that?" Well, this is the OPPOSITE of that!!! It is WAY lighter that I was expecting. I get compliments/questions about it constantly, AND it keeps me from getting crushed by cars now that we are in daylight savings time (knock on wood).
