Trek Releaes New Wave Cell Helmets

Waterloo, WI] — Bontrager announced the addition of two new models in its helmet lineup today—Rally WaveCel and Starvos WaveCel. These two new helmets feature WaveCel helmet technology, which Trek and Bontrager released to wide acclaim last year, and are available at a significantly lower price point than other models in the WaveCel lineup.

Rally WaveCel ($150 MSRP) is an off-road helmet with WaveCel technology that balances comfort and performance for trail riders who value safety. It features a Boa® dial closure system, an adjustable visor, extended rear shell, and LockDown dividers for easy helmet strap management.

Starvos WaveCel ($100 MSRP) is a versatile and stylish helmet with WaveCel technology for road, gravel, trail, and path. It's built with a one-handed Headmaster fit system and LockDown dividers for easy strap management. It's also available in an extended size range up to XL.

Both Rally and Starvos WaveCel helmets were awarded five stars in Virginia Tech's Helmet Safety Rankings.

"Trek and Bontrager are committed to safer cycling for all riders," said April Beard, Bontrager Director of Product for Helmets. "With these two new additions to our helmet lineup, which come in at lower price points than other WaveCel models, we're bringing a leading technology in the protection against cycling-related head injuring to a broader audience of riders."

WaveCel, which was introduced by Trek and Bontrager in 2019, is a revolutionary, Bontrager-exclusive helmet technology that is designed to be more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting your head from injuries caused by certain cycling accidents.

Like all Bontrager products, the new Rally and Starvos helmets are backed by the Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee, which gives riders 30 days to love their purchase. If they don't, we'll take it back. It's that simple.

Additionally, these helmets are backed by Bontrager's Crash Replacement Guarantee. If the helmet sustains an impact within the first year of ownership, Bontrager will replace it for free.

Bontrager's all-new Rally and Starvos WaveCel helmets are available immediately on trekbikes.com and through Trek's global network of retail partners.
