The Starvos WaveCel helmet is an entry-level helmet for those seeking the best protection at a more affordable cost. WaveCel technology is a new approach to energy-absorbing materials in bicycle helmets, allowing the Starvos WaveCel to reduce the chance of head injuries in the event of an impact. Compared to garden-variety styrofoam-only helmets, the Starvos WaveCel got a 5-star ranking from Virginia Tech's helmet safety tests. The cellular WaveCel material sits underneath the exterior styrofoam-and-polyester shell, allowing the material to shear obliquely as well as collapse more effectively during an impact.
Aside from protection, the Starvos WaveCel offers a comfortable fit, with 4 available sizes and an on-handed adjustable HeadMaster fit system. The chin strap is easily adjustable, with a chin buckle and two LockDown strap dividers that keep the fit just right between rides. The helmet boasts 14 open vents, allowing fresh air in and hot air out. The open structure of the WaveCel material is ideal for keeping cool on hot days in the saddle.
We never plan to crash, but if that happens, Bontrager has your back: The Bontrager Crash Replacement Guarantee provides a free helmet replacement if involved in a crash within the first year of ownership. If your WaveCel helmet is involved in a crash, the helmet should be replaced. WaveCel does not provide for multiple impacts in the same helmet.
