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.
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.

More about the Bontrager Charge WaveCel commuter helmet:
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.
Bontrager Charge WaveCel Commuter is a fashion-forward helmet that earns top marks in style and safety. It’s perfect for commutes, e-bike rides and everyday adventures, and it's built with the most advanced helmet safety tech available so you don’t have to choose between fashion and function.
