A Major Advancement in the Protection Against Cycling-Related Head Injuries
WaveCel is a revolutionary helmet safety tech that accounts for how most cycling accidents actually happen: ungracefully, with twists, turns, and angled impacts. Standard foam helmets are designed to protect against direct impacts. These WaveCel road, mountain, commuter, and e-bike helmets are remarkably effective at preventing concussions caused by common cycling accidents. You only get one brain. It's worth protecting.
HOW IT WORKS
In order to protect your head and absorb the energy created by an impact, WaveCel goes through a three-step change in material structure.
First, the cells flex to reduce initial frictional forces.
Next, the cells crumple like a car bumper at impact.
Finally, WaveCel glides to redirect energy away from your head.
