Your single most important piece of gear
A great bike helmet is a must-have for every rider. Of all your gear, your helmet does the most important job. Bontrager offers helmets for every style of riding – including road, trail, commuter and kids’ – with a wide range of technologies, all designed to keep you riding safer.
Why wear a bike helmet?
Helmets are important for every rider and every ride, because they're designed to protect your most valuable asset: your brain. Modern helmets have changed a lot in the recent past. Today, they're built with features that make them more comfortable and aerodynamic, and some helmets are designed to help address linear and rotational energy.
Though no safety gear can protect you from every scenario, helmets today have been designed to protect your head from certain accidents.
What kind of mountain bikes are there?
Now that you know what type of riding you want to do, let’s narrow your choices down. The most common types of bikes – trail and cross country – can either be full suspension bikes with both front and rear shocks, or hardtails with no rear shock.
WaveCel is a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of your Bontrager helmet. It’s designed to be more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting your head from injuries caused by certain cycling accidents.

Bontrager helmets with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) have a low-friction layer between the shell and liner designed to redirect harmful rotational energy during certain angled impacts.
