What is WaveCel?

WaveCel is a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of your helmet. It works like a crumple zone that absorbs the force of an impact before it reaches your head. Read the study to learn more. You’ll never want to ride anything else again.

Cooler than cool

WaveCel keeps you cooler. It minimizes traditional heat-capturing EPS foam and sits perpendicular to the helmet, allowing for more air flow to your forehead and temples. These areas of your head are the most perceptive regions for cooling.
