The Next Generation Helmet
|Award||GOLD WINNER 2016|
Lumen Labs, Inc
Lumos Helmet is a smart, beautifully designed bicycle helmet that features lights, brake and turn signals built into the product itself. The three main innovation elements include: 1) Brake lights which automatically activate when you apply the brakes on your bike 2) Turn signals which are operated by a remote switch on the handlebars of the bike and function similar to turn signals on a car. Once activated, bright yellow lights on the back and front of the helmet will indicate your intended direction. 3) Front and backward facing lights: Bright white lights are arranged in a distinctive pattern on the front of the helmet and bright red lights form a triangle at the back of the helmet.
This stylish yet highly affordable helmet is a useful contribution to cycling safety. In our view, the high positioning of the helmet is the ideal location for passive safety features such as lighting.
