The Bontrager Charge WaveCel commuter helmet employs all the incredible benefits of WaveCel safety technology while keeping it functional and stylish. It's a great everyday helmet for commuting and rides around town with features that will keep you protected and keep a smile on your face.

What is WaveCel technology?
The inside of WaveCel helmets are lined with a honeycomb-like collapsible cellular structure that acts like a crumple zone to absorb more impact force than ever. The result is a truly revolutionary helmet that Bontrager states is 48 times better than industry standard EPS foam at preventing concussions. This Bontrager-exclusive technology disrupts 30 year-old industry safety standards and could change how cycling helmets are made forever.

WaveCel achieves revolutionary saftey performance with this three step process. The cells flex to reduce frictional forces, then crumple to absorb impact, then glide to redirect energy.

This graphic from Bontrager shows the probability of AIS 2 Injury (BrIC) at a 6.2 M/S 45° angled impact,  and compares industry standard helemts to the performance of the exact same helmets with WaveCel inserts.

This image depicts how cyclists using Wavecel technology are less affected by impacts from common cycling crashes. Bontrager maintains that Wavecel inserts improve a cyclists' chances of avoiding a concussion by 48 times.
