1. Lumos Smart LED Helmet (Kickstart/Charcoal Black); $143 (20 percent off)


This super-modern helmet has brake and turn signal lights to keep you safer and more visible on the road. An accelerometer senses your speed and automatically turns on rear lights when you’re slowing down to a brake. And the built-in LED lights on the front make it easier for oncoming traffic to see you. Forbes said the Lumos is "a fully featured high-end helmet with all the fit, comfort and protection you want."
