Ride without compromise.

Of Lumos’s range of smart helmets, the Matrix is the most tricked-out, the most expensive, and the flashiest. As in, the flashiest. The entire back of the helmet is a panel of lights that react to your directions while you scoot, bike, or board—flashing warning lights to signal that you’re slowing down, pulsing lights to make you generally visible as you ride, illuminating bright arrows pointing to the right or left to signal turning. You can control those turn signals via a remote strapped to your handlebar or tucked into your pocket, or if you’re wearing an Apple Watch, through simply your gestures. The idea behind Lumos’s tech is to proactively prevent collision by transforming your head into a beacon of light that yells, “Do not come near me with your giant metal machine!” but should collision happen, the helmet itself is certified to do what a helmet should: protect that noggin.

That light show on the back of your head? Lumos’s customization options allow you to program the 7×11 dot matrix (hence the name Matrix). For those keeping score at home, that’s 77 RGB lights with which to project designs in different colors, all with the goal of making you easily seen in traffic, come pouring rain or bright sunshine. Congrats, you’re a lighting engineer now. As for fit, the Matrix comes with two sets of helmet padding, and if white doesn’t suit your sense of on-the-street style, you can get the shell in black.

MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System. It is a low friction layer beneath the helmet padding which reduces the rotational forces transmitted to the brain during an impact by enabling a relative motion between the head and the helmet.

What is MIPS technology?

MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, which is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. MIPS has been developed by leading brain surgeons and scientists to reduce the rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.

MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.

A MIPS-equipped helmet looks almost identical to a non-MIPS-equipped helmet except for when you look inside, you will see a thin yellow liner beneath the pads. From the outside, the only indicator that the helmet is any different to one without MIPS is that some brands have a small yellow MIPS logo on there. You won’t even feel a difference when wearing a MIPS-equipped helmet.



Do I need it?

Accident stats tell us that the most common injuries occur where an angled impact causes rotation of the head and brain. Although you cannot ever guarantee the outcome of a crash, you can take steps to reduce the potential damage – and this is exactly why MIPS is worth investing in. In the event of a crash where rotational forces could cause damage to the brain due to twisting, MIPS could be the difference between serious injury and walking away from a crash with the minimal possible damage done. Whilst you can never guarantee no injury, you can ensure you reduce as much energy transfer as possible.

MIPS History

In 1997 Swedish neurosurgeon Hans von Holst began to study helmet construction. He partnered with Peter Halldin, researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology, with a goal to contribute to the evolution of helmet technology. As a result, the company, MIPS AB was founded in 2001 by Hans, Peter and 3 other specialists in the biomechanical field from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden.

The company has extensive technological and medical expertise focused on head injuries. They also conduct studies involving injury prediction and the simulation of head and neck injuries using advanced data methods. MIPS AB has extensive and profound knowledge concerning head and neck injuries, a result of 30 years’ experience in the area.
