With the Bontrager Specter WaveCel you can enjoy the same quality and performance of a top-of-the-line Bontrager helmet while knowing you are even better protected with the latest and most effective safety technology available. The Specter WaveCel is a versatile helmet that is perfect for most rides. Whether you ride or race on tarmac, trails, gravel, or all the above, the Specter's thoughtful design and WaveCel technology will keep you confident and comfortable.

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 technology for the safest helmet on the market
- Easy one-handed adjustments with the Boa System for a comfortable fit
- Fidlock magnetic buckles that slide together quickly and easily without the pinch
- Great airflow from superior ventilation so you stay cool
- Soft, comfortable, moisture-wicking, and washable helmet pads
- Reflective elements placed on the back of the help you be seen in traffic
- The Crash Replacement Guarantee will give you a free helmet replacement if you are in a crash within the first year of owning your WaveCel helmet

- Small: 51-57cm
- Medium: 54-60cm
- Large: 58-63cm

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.
