It’s safe to say, no other tour operator goes the extra mile like we do.
Starting in May, we’ll be the only tour operator offering superior helmet technology to our guests. Helmets on trip will now feature WaveCel, Trek’s newest in advanced helmet impact protection that disrupts 30 years of accepted safety conventions.
Created by a team of doctors, researchers, and engineers, WaveCel protects your head and can help absorbs the energy created by an angled impact. WaveCel has been shown in a recent study to be up to 48x more effective than traditional foam helmets in protecting your head from injuries caused by certain cycling accidents.*

Based on reduction in rotational acceleration at impact (6.2 m/s at 45°) of head + neck model wearing traditional EPS foam helmet vs. helmet modified with WaveCel insert. Probability of injury in an actual accident depends on numerous factors, including nature of impact and individual health.”
