WaveCel - ground-breaking helmet technology!

Trek and Bontrager have partnered with WaveCel to create a helmet technology that disrupts 30 years of accepted safety standards. You only get one brain. It's worth protecting.

What is WaveCel?

WaveCel is a revolutionary, Bontrager-exclusive helmet technology that's up to 48x more effective than standard foam helmets in preventing concussions caused by common cycling accidents. *

Read the full study

* Results based on AIS 2 Injury (BriC) at 6.2 m/s test at 45° comparing a standard EPS Helmet and the same helmet modified with WaveCel insert as described in detail in Evaluation of a Novel Bicycle Helmet Concept in Oblique Impact Testing. This study compares standard foam helmets and the same helmets with WaveCel inserts in a simulation of a typical bike crash.

How it works


Unlike a standard foam helmet, which is designed to protect against direct impacts, WaveCel accounts for how most cycling accidents actually happen—ungracefully, with twists, turns, and angled impacts. 

  

WaveCel absorbs energy in multiple ways. On impact, the layers of the WaveCel material move independently and flex until the cell walls crumple and then glide, actively absorbing direct and rotational energy and redirecting it away from your head.   

  

Superior protection. Proven.

Bontrager WaveCel helmets offer significantly better protection than standard foam helmets. They're up to 48x more effective in preventing concussions caused by common cycling accidents. *
