  • Specter WaveCel cycling helmet has been shown in a recent study to be 5x more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting your head from injuries caused by certain cycling accidents.*

    *Based on reduction in rotational acceleration at impact. Probability of injury in an actual accident depends on numerous factors, including nature of impact and individual health.

    What is WaveCel?

    WaveCel is a revolutionary helmet technology designed to be more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting against certain cycling-related accidents. Its collapsible cellular structure lines the inside of your helmet and is designed to work like a crumple zone to absorb the force of an impact before it reaches your head. 

    A TIME Magazine Invention of the Year

    Our breakthrough WaveCel helmet technology was included in TIME Magazine's list of 100 Best Inventions for making the world better, smarter, and even a bit more fun. Watch the video to learn more about the science behind this revolutionary helmet technology. 

    Virginia Tech validation

    All WaveCel helmets received the highest rating from Virginia Tech's third-party testing facility. This unbiased assessment proved Bontrager's WaveCel helmets to be among the highest level of protection available to cyclists with a 5-STAR rating.

    Cooler than cool

    WaveCel keeps you cooler. It minimizes traditional heat-capturing EPS foam and sits perpendicular to the helmet, allowing for more air flow to your forehead and temples. These areas of your head are the most perceptive regions for cooling.
