WaveCel - Bontrager's New Concussion-Preventing Helmet Technology
Also, I am sick of seeing safety equipment that is marketed as the best, also being the most expensive. This ranges from neck protectors, to pads, and obviously helmets. This does nothing to address the protection of new riders and young riders, who are far less likely to spend $300 on a helmet. I would think Bontrager/Trek is large enough that this helmet could be sold for a much lower price point and still be profitable, but who knows...

WaveCel - Bontrager's New Concussion-Preventing Helmet Technology
I wonder how the Smith Forefront stands up to the exact same test? This seems so much alike, it's hard to imagine this helmet would be much of an improvement. I went down a couple months ago and hit my Forefront on a granite rock pointed to about the size of a baseball. The impact was at the edge of the helmet just above the ear, where the helmet is both EPS and the honeycomb grid stuff. The foam cracked/compressed a little and the honeycomb stuff might have deformed a little. No signs of concussion though, which I am thankful for! I am all for new tech that keeps us safe, but it would be nice if the Smith Forefront was compared in that study considering the similarities.
