The Bontrager Jet WaveCel Kids' Helmet

The fun doesn't stop with super-safe WaveCel helmets for adults though, as Bontrager has announced the addition of Jet WaveCel to its helmet line-up today, the first-ever kids’ helmet to feature WaveCel technology.

The Jet WaveCel sells for $149.99 and is a skater-inspired kids’ bike helmet with parent-friendly features like easy adjustment and WaveCel, a leading technology in the protection against cycling-related head injuries.

‘Bringing WaveCel to a kids’ helmet is the clear next step for this game-changing technology,’ said April Beard, Bontrager Director of Product for Helmets. ‘It has always been our mission to advance helmet safety technology for riders of all ages, and that’s why we’re thrilled to introduce a new model for kids.’

Coming in either a 48-52cm or 50-55cm size, the Jet WaveCel comes in 3 colour choices. But best of all, stickers are available for a bit of customisation. There's still a dialled fit system, and a Fidlock magnetic slide clasp which greatly reduces the nightmare of pinched skin in a buckle.

Jet WaveCel meets ATSM standards, whose tests use a smaller mass headform more realistic to younger riders. At $150 it's a significant increase in price compared to many other kids' helmets on the market. But with a much higher level of protection, this could be right on the money for a lot of parents who want a happy and safe junior cyclist.

The WaveCel Jet is available right now from your Trek dealer.
