This weekend an early delivery came from Lumos Helmets, the new Lumos Ultra E-Bike Smart Helmet.
Earlier this year I backed their Firefly smart bike light Kickstarter and towards the end of the campaign, there was an opening to order the new Ultra E-Bike helmet for the first 150 people. What attracted me to this helmet over their standard Lumos Ultra Smart Bike Helmet was the NTA 8776 e-bike helmet certification (better protection at higher speeds), the face shield, and additional side lights.

Lumos Ultra E-Bike Smart Helmet Conclusion
There is very limited information about this helmet. The only webpage I have found talking about the Lumos Ultra E-bike helmet is here. It seems like they were testing the market with their Kickstarter add-on. Also, knowing the bike industry right now they are probably trying to balance pricing with the changes in the market. Is there enough interest as the bike boom quiets down? Have their suppliers and shippers stabilized their pricing? These are all speculations, but as someone that deals with this daily at Tern, I do get that it is a hard time for a small brand to launch a totally new product.
