San Francisco, CA, November 20th, 2018 - For Immediate Release

Lumos Helmet has recently been named as one of Oprah's Favorite Things and TIME's Best Inventions of 2018, catapulting its way into mainstream recognition for the category. The publications have about approximately 26 million and 16 million in readership respectively.

Oprah's Favorite Things is a holiday gift guide which O, The Oprah Magazine releases once a year as a list tested and tried by Oprah Winfrey herself. On the Lumos Helmet, Oprah says in the December issue of O, The Oprah Magazine that "You can't put a price on safety. This high-tech bike helmet is the one you want hugging a loved one's noggin." The helmet is the only 1 in 10 tech gift choices, among other popular devices such as the iPhone XR and Amazon Echo Spot.

Lumos Helmet is also 1 in 5 of the TIME's Best Inventions in the Transportation and Travel category for 2018, alongside the popular Boosted Mini electric skateboard and Gravity's Jet Suit (a real-life Iron Man suit). TIME's Sean Gregory recounts the journey of the Lumos Helmet from a crowdfunded project which raised over $800,000 USD, making it still one of the largest crowdfunded bicycle helmets ever, to being the first helmet ever in Apple Stores.

CEO and Founder Eu-wen Ding is says "We were beyond delighted and all of us here are just very grateful for this and every other opportunity."
