AUSTIN, Texas, March 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The newest product from Lumos Helmet called the Lumos „Matrix“ Helmet, has been announced as the winner of SXSW’s (South by Southwest) Release It Pitch Competition and will receive the award at the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards on March 11.
SXSW Release It provides a platform for companies to launch a new and innovative product or service during a pitch competition on the opening day of the SXSW Conference.
Ten cutting-edge companies launching a new product during the SXSW season presented to a panel of hand-picked judges, comprised of Todd Nuckols, Managing Director of Lighthouse Labs, Melissa Larson Youngblood, Co-Founder of Venn Ventures, and Jennifer Skjellum, Director of Programs at the CO.LAB. The winner was chosen based on which product or service was deemed most likely to succeed in the marketplace.
The Lumos „Matrix“ Helmet is the latest and newest helmet from Lumos. Targeted at urban city cyclists, skaters, and electric scooter riders, the Lumos „Matrix“ Helmet is designed with a sleek, urban aesthetic. It features several notable improvements and upgrades from the first Lumos Helmet including:
- Front lights that are 2.5X brighter than the original, bright enough now to see the road ahead of you
- An innovative back panel matrix of LEDs that feature unique lighting patterns specifically designed to make the rider stand out and be seen on the road
- Animated turn signals that make them even easier to see and be understood, making them even more effective
