Safety for Everyone
WaveCel, which was introduced by Trek and Bontrager in 2019, is a revolutionary, Bontrager-exclusive helmet technology that is designed to be more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting your head from injuries caused by certain cycling accidents.
"Trek and Bontrager are committed to safer cycling for all riders," said April Beard, Bontrager Director of Product for Helmets. "With these new additions to our helmet lineup, which come in at lower price points than other WaveCel models, we're bringing a leading technology in the protection against cycling-related head injuring to a broader audience of riders."
Beard also added “Bringing WaveCel to a kids’ helmet is the clear next step for this game-changing technology,” “It has always been our mission to advance helmet safety technology for riders of all ages, and that’s why we’re thrilled to introduce a new model for kids.”
Rally WaveCel (AU: RRP $229.99) is an off-road helmet with WaveCel technology that balances comfort and performance for trail riders who value safety. It features a Boa® dial closure system, an adjustable visor, extended rear shell, and LockDown dividers for easy helmet strap management.
Starvos WaveCel (AU: RRP $169.99) is a versatile and stylish helmet with WaveCel technology for road, gravel, trail, and path. It's built with a one-handed Headmaster fit system and LockDown dividers for easy strap management. It's also available in an extended size range up to XL.
Both Rally and Starvos WaveCel helmets were awarded five stars in Virginia Tech's Helmet Safety Rankings.
Jet WaveCel(AU: RRP $149.99) is a skater-inspired kids’ bike helmet with parent-friendly features like easy adjustment and WaveCel, a leading technology in the protection against cycling-related head injuries.
Additionally, the new WaveCel kids’ helmet features a Fidlock magnetic buckle that fastens quickly and easily, along with a Dialled fit system for a secure and comfortable fit, and thick helmet pads that are easy to remove for cleaning. Every Jet WaveCel also comes with a sticker pack for kid-friendly customisation.
Like all Bontrager products, the new Rally, Starvos, and Jet helmets are backed by the Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee, which gives riders 30 days to love their purchase. If they don't, we'll take it back. It's that simple.
Additionally, these helmets are backed by Bontrager's Crash Replacement Guarantee. If the helmet sustains an impact within the first year of ownership, Bontrager will replace it for free.
