Launched in 2019, Bontrager’s WaveCel helmet technology uses a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of specific helmets. The structure works like a crumple zone to absorb the force of an impact before it reaches your head. Although we’re all about safer helmets, the retail price of the initial line of WaveCel helmets was difficult for everyone to get behind. Announced today, Bontrager has expanded the line to offer new lower price points, and more sizes, from XL all the way down to kid’s sizes. Find details and pricing on the new Rally, Starvos, and Jet WaveCel helmets below.

Bontrager Rally WaveCel Helmet

Taking design cues from the Rally MIPS, the Rally WaveCel is a high-value off-road helmet with trail specific features like BOA Fit System and an adjustable visor. It’s available in four colors; black, marigold, olive grey / orange, and azure / nautical navy, and retails for $149.99 USD.
