“1st one saved my life, so I bought it again!”

I had a pretty rough crash about 3 months ago, luckily I came away with just a tiny fracture in my wrist, but I did hit my head while wearing this helmet and I know it saved [me] from a concussion or worse. Bought the exact same one again! Great helmet and it’s easy to adjust for the perfect fit! It’s also ventilated very well so that’s great in the summer heat!

“Highly recommend to competitive cyclists”

I have taken the WaveCel helmet on many century rides, criteriums, and road races as a Cat 3 and have not had any discomfort. Temperatures have ranged from 32 degrees Fahrenheit to 95 degrees and still, the helmet isn’t uncomfortable. A highly recommendable helmet for serious cyclists.

“Saved my noodle”

Riding today and another cyclist changed into my lane oncoming and forced me to the deck .. left side is pizza but def hit my head pretty good. My WaveCel XXX kept my noodle intact.

“Major upgrade”

Everything about this helmet is top notch and it looks awesome, too. Also can’t believe the price of it compared to other less equipped helmets out there.

“It saved my life…”

I have put hundreds of miles on this thing, it is light, it is comfortable and it feels great. Yesterday, I was bombing a hill at around 30 miles an hour, and unfortunately had some bad luck. I was going into a hairpin turn and remember thinking that I was going too fast, next thing I knew I was on the ground sliding. I broke my collar bone and have some bad road rash, but my wavecell saved my head. The side of the helmet is banged up but miraculously I walked away (more like rode away in an ambulance) completely intact in my head. I will never ride without one again.

“Sturdy & Secure”

Snug and comfortable fit. Incorporating the BOA dial into the shell of the helmet is a stroke of genius. I wear this helmet with the Anon M2 goggles and have zero goggle gap. The magnetic clasp is super handy.

“Fine Workmanship”

The fine workmanship is clearly visible. Low weight, BOA system installed in the shell does not obstruct the head movement backwards. This is what I was looking for.

“This helmet proved itself where it counts most”

I bought this helmet about four months ago and used it on all my rides, on and offroad. The fit was perfect and very comfortable. The helmet feels as if it firmly covers your whole head rather than sitting on top of it, like a lot of other helmets. The only negative aspect is that I find it a bit warmer than comparable helmets, especially here in South Africa where it gets quite hot – but not a problem on cooler rides. However, the main reason I’m writing this review is that I wore the helmet during the event that we all fear most – an accident where I was thrown over my bars. The helmet remained firmly on my head; I had no neck pain; and through the whole experience the helmet did everything that I bought it for. I fell on the side of my head and got wacked at the back by the bike as well, so I guess the WaveCel and casing did their job perfectly.
