Bontrager WaveCel Helmet | June 2019

What is WaveCel?

WaveCel is a revolutionary helmet safety tech that accounts for how most cycling accidents actually happen: ungracefully, with twists, turns, and angled impacts. Standard foam helmets are designed to protect against direct impacts.* These WaveCel road, mountain, commuter, and e-bike helmets are remarkably effective at preventing concussions caused by common cycling accidents. You only get one brain. It's worth protecting.



In order to protect your head and absorb the energy created by an impact, WaveCel goes through a three-step change in material structure.


First, the cells flex to reduce initial frictional forces.


Next, the cells crumple like a car bumper at impact.


Finally, WaveCel glides to redirect energy away from your head.

*See Evaluation of a Novel Bicycle Helmet Concept in Oblique Impact Testing, Accident Analysis and Prevention 123 (2019) 58-65. Based on reduction in rotational acceleration at impact (6.2 m/s at 45°) of head + neck model wearing traditional EPS foam helmet vs. helmet modified with WaveCel insert. Probability of injury in an actual accident depends on numerous factors, including nature of impact and individual health.
