First Look: Bontrager Circuit WaveCel Helmet

Bontrager’s all-new Circuit WaveCel helmet brings protection from tarmac to trail, and in breezy summer-ready style.

The Bicycling Editors |

Legendary Trek equipment arm Bontrager has launched its all-new Circuit WaveCel Helmet, with an aerodynamic profile that cheats the wind without compromising fit and protection making it the most versatile in Bontrager’s line-up.

With premium features and a comfort-focused fit, plus a five-star rating from Virginia Tech’s third-party testing facility, the Circuit WaveCel is at home from tar to trail, cycling path to bike park. For the rider looking for one helmet to do it all, the Circuit WaveCel is the answer.

The new Circuit includes WaveCel technology. WaveCel is a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of this Bontrager helmet. It’s designed to be more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting heads from injuries caused by certain cycling accidents.

Circuit WaveCel features Blendr magnetic mounts that offer a perch for a GoPro and Bontrager Daytime Running Lights, so riders can see, be seen and check the footage after the ride. The magnetic connection makes light installation simple, stays secure through rough and fast riding, and is tested for breakaway forces to make sure that accessories detach in the event of a crash.

The Circuit WaveCel also features a micro-adjustable BOA® Fit System that allows riders to take control of their fit, and new FlatStraps with semi-fixed dividers offer plenty of fore-and-aft adjustability to find a comfortable and secure position under the chin. Plus, moisture-wicking pads provide a soft cushion and are easily removed for washing after warm rides and big efforts, so riders can stay fresh day in and day out.

The WaveCel Guarantee

Like all Bontrager products, the new Circuit WaveCel is backed by the 30-Day Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee, which gives riders 30 days to love their purchase. If they don’t, Bontrager will take it back. It’s that simple.

Additionally, the helmet is 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.

R2 900, available November 2021
