A class action lawsuit was filed in New York City seeking $ 5 million against Trek Bicycle Corporation linked to its Bontrager brand, claiming the company had used “false and misleading” claims that WaveCel helmets were very effective in reducing injury brain damage following a bicycle accident.
An individual from Staatsburg, New York, Andrew Glancey, is the main plantiff, which has been reported by BicycleRetailer.com Thursday. The lawsuit not only called the “misleading claims” about the technology depicted in the construction of the helmets, which were launched in 2019, but also pointed to inaccuracies in the tests carried out to prove the marketing claims.
