A Revolution in Helmet Safety

Up to 48x more effective than standard foam helmets in preventing concussions.*

Trek and Bontrager have partnered with WaveCel to create a helmet technology that disrupts 30 years of accepted safety standards. Commuters, cruisers, road cyclists, trail riders and every rider in between will find WaveCel's comfort, breathability, sleek styling and safety unmatched.

What is Wavecel Technology?

What is WaveCel?

WaveCel is a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of your helmet. It works like a crumple zone that absorbs the force of an impact before it reaches your head.

Nearly 99 out of 100 times, WaveCel can help prevent concussions. Standard foam helmets? Not so much.

How it Works

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

  • Flex – First, the cells flex to reduce initial frictional forces.
  • Crumple – Next, the cells crumple like a car bumper.
  • Glide – Lastly, WaveCel glides to redirect energy.
