The helmet technology of the Specter WaveGel is proven to be up to 48 times more effective than standard EPS foam at preventing concussions from common cycling accidents. WaveCel absorbs impact energy in multiple ways. The layers of the WaveCel material move independently and flex until the cell walls are fully compressed. They glide sideways, actively absorbing direct and rotational energy and redirecting it away from the head.

Statement by the Jury

The helmet technology using the principles of bending, compressing and gliding makes the Specter WaveCel an exemplary innovation for increased biking security.
