- Ambient (room temperature)
- High temperature (127 degrees Fahrenheit / 52 degrees Celsius)
- Low temperature ( 1 degree Fahrenheit / - 17 degrees Celsius)
- Soaked in water (immersed in water for 24 hours)
(ie. The lab smashes helmets that have been acclimatized to each of those 4 extreme conditions to ensure that a hot, frozen, and wet helmet is as safe during an impact as a helmet in normal ambient conditions)
The purpose of course is to ensure that the helmet is not just safe in normal conditions, but also in fairly extreme conditions.
New product photographs sneak peek
We need to do a few more small batch production dry runs before we can pull the trigger and start producing helmets in the thousands. In the coming weeks we will have final details on color, and we'll also be sending out that final survey.
In the meantime we were actually able to ship out several units to beta testers. We asked them to compare it with the original beta units they got earlier this year for comparison, and (thankfully!) they have had very positive things to say!
* The straps feel great and were very easy to setup & adjust.
More updates coming very soon!

Before you ship are you offering to change colors?
Around the world this unit has been evaluated by various riders. Some with years of experience and others novice riders. As one of the “testers” I can honestly say that the LUMOS team has listened and tweaked the original helmet which we beta tested. Not only did I test this unit in various climatic conditions I took two hard falls (not intentionally) during the testing phase. One was during a major snow storm and the other down a 20’ drop off a mountain. The helmet was intact, wished I could have said the same for my body, and it kept on working. One of the test that I conducted the helmet could be seen from 1.3 miles out. It’s a great product and I hope each of you enjoy it.
The finished product is something you can be proud of.
Congratulations! Any product photographs of the final white helmet? Thanks.
