Bontrager XXX WaveCel delivers high-performance protection and the best in aerodynamics and comfort. XXX is the WaveCel helmet of choice for the Trek-Segafredo men's and women's teams. WaveCel is a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of the helmet. This Bontrager-exclusive technology disrupts the safety standards that the industry has accepted for over 30 years.
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.
It is a collapsible cellular material that is incredibly effective at preventing concussion caused by common cycling accidents. It works by going through a three-step change in material structure on impact to absorb energy before it reaches your head. A special feature is the absorption of rotational acceleration by the WaveCel material on the inside of the helmet, so that these are transferred to the skull to a much lesser extent or not at all. With conventional helmet with EPS-foam, it has not been possible so far to absorb those forces in the event of impact, which significantly increases the risk of concussions.
This Bontrager-exclusive material is the brainchild of a biomechanical engineer and an orthopaedic surgeon who wanted to solve the problem of traumatic brain injuries in active people. It is the first advanced helmet technology ever to receive funding from the US National Institute of Health.
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.
Through extensive research and testing in the lab and in the real world, WaveCel technology is proven to keep you cooler by minimising traditional heat-capturing EPS foam. The material sits perpendicular to the helmet allowing more airflow so it doesn’t impede flow to the forehead and temples, which are the most perceptive regions of cooling while riding, and allows air to flow over your head as hot air is pulled away from you.
Each component of the XXX helmet was questioned and tested to achieve the lightest possible helmet without compromising protection and aerodynamics. The XXX racing helmet scores with the ideal balance of protection, aerodynamics and weight, making your head and safety a priority.
