About this project
LUMO was born here on Kickstarter two years ago. Tired of having to make a choice between safety and style on a bike, we launched a range of city cycling clothing that looks stylish off a bike, but keeps you visible to traffic on a bike. The successful campaign resulted in us shipping to 32 different countries, generating some incredible media reviews and selling in some of the world's best cycling stores. After 12 months of working on new designs, we've come back to Kickstarter to launch our next product, the Clissold Bomber jacket.
Inspired by the military issue MA-1 flight jacket, the Clissold Bomber has been adapted for life on the bike and is the perfect crossover from cycling specific clothing to stylish outerwear.
Every detail on this jacket has been considered to make urban cycling as comfortable as possible:
- 14x4 Lumen waterproof LEDs on front & rear, visible 400m away
- Up-to 14 hours battery life on a single charge
- USB charged lithium polymer battery pack
- Dropped hem to keep you covered on the bike
- Additional sleeve length for comfort when in riding position
- Zipped pocket closures in waist and chest pockets
- High ribbed collar for wind protection
- High performance fabric providing water resistance and breathability
- Moisture wicking mesh lining
The Clissold Bomber jacket has been made using Schoeller® 3XDRY® performance fabric, meaning the outside of the jacket is water, dirt and stain repellent and any moisture on the inside is quickly absorbed and evaporated away from the body, keeping you dry and comfortable on the bike.
VISIBLE 400 METRES AWAY
Ultra high brightness waterproof LED lights run down the front and the back of the jacket and are visible to traffic up to 400 metres away. Positioned in the most visible location on the body, the lights will last up to 14 hours on a single charge and are USB rechargeable.
The lighting system is silicon coated and completely waterproof.
All LUMO garments have been designed to look as good off the bike as they do on it. We offer a casual, tailored fit that is comfortable for cycling in, whilst providing a relaxed look off the bike. Both men’s and women’s jackets are sized based on average height and build and designed to go over two lightweight layers like a top and a jumper. If you will be wearing heavy layers underneath, we recommend you size up one size on your normal choice. All our garments have been made with additional length in the sleeves and back to offer comfort whilst in the riding position.

The Clissold Bomber jacket is a unisex style, meaning the cut is exactly the same for men as it is for women, but womens sizes are slightly shorter in the arms and rear hem than mens.
CARE AND WARRANTY
We offer a free lifetime repair service. We offer a 12 month warranty from the time of delivery and will replace or repair any faulty product within that period, as well as offering lifetime repair outside of warranty. To find out how to care for your LUMO product and operate the lighting system, have a read of our user manual.
With the experience of the last campaign behind us, no stone has been left unturned in delivering the Clissold Bomber. Everything from manufacturers to packaging and fulfilment is already in place, and we have a team of people with the knowledge, skills and experience to deliver. We understand how long the product will take to manufacture and when we will be able deliver it to our backers who wish to pledge and be the first people to receive the Clissold in the world.
Stretch goal #1: £12,000 = XXL mens Bomber Jacket
Due to popular demand, we will release the Mens Bomber in size XXL. This size will only be available for Kickstarter backers and will be made to order following the completion of the campaign.
Stretch Goal #2: £15,000 = **Limited Edition Bermondsey Backpack in Dusty Orange**
If we hit a target of £15,000 or over, we will release a limited edition colour way of the existing Bermondsey Backpack in dusty orange at discounted price of £150 (current retail price is £150). Drawing inspiration from vintage British military rucksacks, the Bermondsey is a versatile roll top backpack. Constructed with beautiful yet rugged 100% British waxed cotton canvas and Italian Misouri leather, these bags get even better with age and form a unique character over time.
The Full package includes two items from our current collection, the Bermondsey Backpack and Camden Polo:
Since launching, LUMO has had coverage in mainstream, technology and cycling media.

Risks and challenges
With one successful Kickstarter campaign already under our belt that shipped to over 450 backers in 32 countries, we are confident we can deliver on the timely delivery of the new products. We have existing suppliers and manufacturers ready and waiting for a production order and have factored in two more rounds of sampling to make sure we account for backer feedback ahead of starting production
What you are seeing are final Kickstarter samples, so expect the final product to be even more polished. There is a chance we opt to change certain features on the Bomber Jacket based on backer feedback following the campaign. This will be clearly communicated to backers ahead of production and will result in a better end product.
We're confident in the build quality of these garments. So much so, that we offer a one year replace or repair warranty on them from the date of delivery, with a free lifetime repair warranty after that.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
