To protect the head and absorb the energy generated by an impact, the material structure of the WaveCel undergoes a change composed of three phases.

  • First, the cells flex to reduce the initial frictional forces.
  • Afterwards, the cells contract like the bumper of a car after an impact
  • Finally, the WaveCel slides to redirect the energy away from the head

Approximately 99 of each 100 times, WaveCel technology can help in the prevention of concussions. And in the case of conventional EPS foam helmets? The percentage is not that high.
