Bontrager adds WaveCel technology to new Rally and Starvos helmets

Press Release

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.

Bontrager Rally WaveCel


Rally WaveCel (R2,999.00 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 (R1,999.00 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, 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. April Beard, Bontrager Director of Product for Helmets


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.

Correct. The Stravos retail price was incorrectly listed in the original press release as R2,999 and is in fact R1,999. The article has now been udpated.
