Whether your ride ends at the track finish line or at your front door, the Bontrager Circuit WaveCel gives you the performance, comfort and technology you need in an all-around helmet. Featuring innovative WaveCel technology, a Boa® fit system for superior comfort and unparalleled security, and a Blendr mounting system for easy integration of lights and cameras, this helmet is ready for anything.
WaveCel is a compressible cell structure on the inside of the helmet. It works like a crumple zone, absorbing impact energy in a fall and protecting the head from hard impacts.
ES is a compressible cellular material that provides incredibly effective protection against concussions in cycling-type accidents. Here, the material structure reacts in three phases when an impact occurs to absorb the energy before it reaches the head. A special feature is the interception of rotational forces by the WaveCel material in the helmet, so that they are transferred to the skull to a much lesser extent or not at all. Until now, conventional helmets with EPS foam have not been able to sustainably prevent this force from being absorbed at the moment of impact, which significantly increases the risk of concussions.
This material, used exclusively in Bontrager helmets, is the invention of a biomechanical engineer and an orthopedic surgeon who set out to solve the problem of traumatic brain injury in active people. WaveCel is the first ever advanced helmet technology to receive funding from the US National Institutes of Health.
