Catlike's Vacuum Helmet is a surprising addition to the Spanish company's helmet line because, well, it looks very similar to the ...Platonic idea of a bike helmet. That's not to say it doesn't have some unique touches that only Catlike offer, but that it packages those features in a more conventional, less look-at-me form that recommends it for the trail, proving that safety doesn't have to suck the fun out of a ride. Perhaps the biggest difference between the Vacuum and its competitors is the extended rear section of helmet, which Catlike refers to intuitively as Safety Low Nape Protection (LNP). LNP's lower shell puts a layer of protection between any obstacles and your occipital lobe, an area that typically gets ignored by lids that are shaped more literally like lids, just perching atop your head instead of encompassing it. Not to be overlooked is Catlike's Air Tube System, which makes up the Vacuum's core and comprises a series of small tubes connecting the helmet's segmented "fins" together. The design divides the helmet into impact-absorbing crumple zones that dissipate energy at the time of a crash -- not unlike the skeleton of a compact car. It also provides a strong skeleton, so Catlike's engineers can reduce weight in other areas and keep the Vacuum under 300 grams, claimed. It also results in 19 generous vents with matching rear exhausts to vacuum up air so you stay cool. The Vacuum uses the same MPS (Multi Position System) retention system as the top-shelf Whisper Plus. The MPS is constructed around a rubberized plastic strap that attaches into, and pivots from, a socket in the shell of the helmet at the temple, which then follows the side of your head and curves around toward the back, where it floats freely from the nylon web straps. There are two additional lateral adjusters on a ratcheting strap for circumferential adjustment. The whole system slides up, down, around for a comfortable fit on a wide variety of head shapes.

Mountain bikers are loath to associate with anything that reeks of roadies, but the Catlike Leaf Helmet is a road-inspired lid tha...t's picking up popularity among the more trail-inclined, and with good reason. This is the second year the Leaf's been offered, and it was so well received the first time around that Catlike, in a rare display of good judgement, decided to just let it be. That means the new Leaf has the same in-mold construction, which marries the polycarbonate shell to the EPS impact foam to increase impact resistance and spread energy around the whole helmet instead of focusing it just on the crash area. It also sports Catlike's Low Nape Protection, where the helmet extends farther down the back of head for additional protection in rearward falls. The Leaf keeps you cool, too, with 23 vents and a Dual Flow ventilation system that sucks air through the helmet to stop your head from overheating. For a perfect fit, there's a Multi Positioning System eVo dial that lets you adjust the helmet both vertically and around your head. Catlike also included a removable visor--pretty standard--and an internal bug net behind the front vents--not at all standard--which you'll dig if you've ever been stung by a bee that got trapped in your helmet.

Catlike's Chrono Aero WT Helmet is fast. But don't take our word for it. In fact, don't take anyone's word. Instead, let the resul...ts during the 2012 Vuelta's opening team time trial speak for the helmet's born-for-speed pedigree. Underneath a full complement of Chrono Aero WT Helmets, Movistar took the stage win and the first leader's jersey of the race. For 2015, Catlike has left this wind-cheating formula unchanged. After all, when the testing can't be improved upon, there's no reason to change. Catlike's hours in the design lab ensure that at your head will remain comfortable through the duration of your time-trial event. The singular, in-molded shell features Catlike's CES (Crash Energy Splitter) technology that disperses impact energy along the internal skeletal structure of the helmet. Catlike uses an open-cell foam to pad the flexible ear flaps, making the helmet much easier to pull on and eliminating any painful pinching along the side of your head. Dialing in your fit is also a painless affair, as Catlike has equipped the Chrono Aero with a cradle for the back of your neck. This cradle is fully adjustable, and independent of the helmet straps. Its tension can be tightened or loosened with the simple turning of the ratchet dial. The helmet has one ventilation port at the front of the helmet -- a single, massive air intake shaped like the Catlike logo. It's a refreshing design choice that is as bold as it is functional, and one that further serves to illustrate Catlike's predilection for unorthodox design in differentiating itself from the masses. The helmet also features two streamlined exhaust ports on the back and tail of the helmet that leave airflow largely uninterrupted as you slice through the wind. The Chrono Aero also comes equipped with a clear, interchangeable windscreen. Read More

There's a lot to balance in a helmet. Strength, weight, ventilation, comfort, and fit all have to work together, and if even one i...s off, you might not be too psyched. For those demanding helmet perfection, there's the Catlike Mixino Movistar Team Helmet, which combines a whole host of technologies to deliver every essential helmet benchmark.Let's start with the obvious: a helmet's primary job is to keep you safe. To that end, Catlike packed the Mixino Movistar full of tech like a woven aramid-fiber cage, polycarbonate shell and polystyrene foam, all of which are fused together using in-mold construction, which diffuses crash energy across the whole helmet, not letting it focus solely at the point of impact. To increase diffusion even further, Catlike developed what it calls a Crash Energy Splitter, which increases the strength of the helmet while splitting energy in the same way in-mold construction does. Catlike also included Low Nape Protection by extending the rear of the helmet to cover you in backwards-facing crashes. With protection covered, Catlike turned to fit. Its MPS eVo micro-dial system expands or contracts thin arms that wrap around your head, and there are two independently adjustable rear head supporters and lateral wing pads that help you adjust volume. MPS eVo also allows vertical adjustment, so even if you're a conehead you'll be able to dial in a killer fit. After all, there's a reason this version of the Mixino is the go-to helmet for team Movistar. Read More

We have mixed feelings about the Mixino VD2. 0 Helmet, Catlike's foray into the realm of aerodynamic safety. We're sorry to see th...e hugely effective ventilation system of its Mixino helmets go, but the gains in aerodynamic efficiency made by incorporating a solid shell are undeniable and, in certain, high-speed situations, indispensable. Save the vents for the century with multiple mountain passes, and use the Mixino VD2. 0 for rides when every second counts. Catlike is best known for its high protection standards -- this is especially true for a helmet designed for pure, unadulterated speed. The Mixino VD2. 0 is accordingly designed to the exact specifications as the original, highly-ventilated model. To begin with, it is formed using In-Mold technology -- the inner and outer shell of the helmet are molded to become one piece, not merely glued onto each other. This increases crash resistance and diffusion of energy should a crash occur. The helmet was designed with Low Nape Protection so that your occipitals are protected in the event of an accident. What sets the Mixino VD2. 0 even further apart from its aerodynamic competitors is a combination of an ARC roll Cage and Graphene Nano-fibers. The roll cage is an internal structure made from Aramid fibers. In case these fibers sound vaguely familiar, they have been used in the aerospace industry. They have been used in conjunction with Graphene fibers to keep weight to a minimum while maximizing protection. Catlike used replaceable Outlast pads on the interior for impressive comfort. These pads use NASA-developed Phase Change Materials (PCM) which actually store and release heat as needed to help regulate body temperature. Holding the Mixino VD2. 0 tightly on your noggin is Catlike's eVo retention system. This utilizes horizontal and vertical pads that are adjusted with micro-wheels as well as customizable padding on the side wings of the helmet. Read More

The first thing you notice when looking at the Catlike Mixino, or any other Catlike helmet, really, is the completely unconvention...al shell and vent layout. Buried inside that shell, though, is where the real magic sits. Keeping your head protected is always priority number one for a helmet, with keeping your head cool a close second. Catlike forms the Mixino around an Aramid cage it calls the Crash Energy Splitter, which does just what it says. In the event of a crash, the cage is designed to maintain the helmet's structural integrity by dispersing the energy throughout. In addition, Catlike extended the protection for the back of your head beyond what many other manufacturers offer, and it's integrated what it calls MPS eVo, a micro-adjusting fit system that ensures a proper helmet fit. And about that keeping cool priority --Catlike's got that one covered with 39 individual vents, and airflow channels with rear-facing exhaust ports to keep air moving the right direction. Read More

Catlike helmets were introduced into the US just a few years ago and they caught our attention with not only their eye-catching st...yle but also their attention to the details most sought after by cyclists -- namely fit and airflow. The Catlike 360 showcases simplicity of shape, fit, and ventilation for riders who want protection, but don't need all the added features of a more expensive helmet. The 360 was designed with both cyclists and skaters in mind. Whether you freeride or freestyle, or even skateboard or roller skate, the 360 is something you won't want to be without. Designed from hi-density foam and a hard shell, it was constructed to fit close to your head. Its rounded shape means that you won't feel wind resistance when you turn your head, as you would if wearing an aero helmet. Catlike used its LNP (Low Nape Protection) in the design. This adds a lower rear structure to the back of the helmet to further protect the back of your head in the event of an impact. This is especially important when participating in disciplines, such as freestyle, where rear impact is just as prevalent as forward impact.Even though the 360 features a very significant amount of solid shell as compared to their Whisper helmet, Catlike still incorporated its Dual Flow Technology. This means that large frontal air intakes are connected to large exit vents located in the rear. Connecting the vents keeps airflow continuous so that you avoid over-heating. The helmet is secured with a quick-release buckle attached to adjustable straps for a perfect fit.The Catlike 360 comes in One size and in the colors: Black city and White city. Read More

Catlike's Vacuum Helmet is a surprising addition to the Spanish company's helmet line because, well, it looks very similar to the ...Platonic idea of a bike helmet. That's not to say it doesn't have some unique touches that only Catlike offer, but that it packages those features in a more conventional, less look-at-me form that recommends it for the trail, proving that safety doesn't have to suck the fun out of a ride. Perhaps the biggest difference between the Vacuum and its competitors is the extended rear section of helmet, which Catlike refers to intuitively as Safety Low Nape Protection (LNP). LNP's lower shell puts a layer of protection between any obstacles and your occipital lobe, an area that typically gets ignored by lids that are shaped more literally like lids, just perching atop your head instead of encompassing it. Not to be overlooked is Catlike's Air Tube System, which makes up the Vacuum's core and comprises a series of small tubes connecting the helmet's segmented fins together. The design divides the helmet into impact-absorbing crumple zones that dissipate energy at the time of a crash -- not unlike the skeleton of a compact car. It also provides a strong skeleton, so Catlike's engineers can reduce weight in other areas and keep the Vacuum under 300 grams, claimed. It also results in 19 generous vents with matching rear exhausts to vacuum up air so you stay cool. The Vacuum uses the same MPS (Multi Position System) retention system as the top-shelf Whisper Plus. The MPS is constructed around a rubberized plastic strap that attaches into, and pivots from, a socket in the shell of the helmet at the temple, which then follows the side of your head and curves around toward the back, where it floats freely from the nylon web straps. There are two additional lateral adjusters on a ratcheting strap for circumferential adjustment. The whole system slides up, down, around for a comfortable fit on a wide variety of head shapes.

Some people say they don't like wearing a helmet because they haven't found one that's comfortable. Catlike takes the wind out of ...that excuse's sails with the Whisper Helmet. It'll protect your noggin just as well as any other helmet out there and is so light and comfy that you'll barely know it's there. This helmet comes with a whopping 39 vents with Dual Flow design, which means that the vents are designed to constantly direct air through the helmet to keep your head nice and cool at all times. Think of it as air conditioning for your brain. To keep the weight down, Catlike uses its Airtube System of hollow elastic tubes to create an inner mesh throughout the helmet, which is a fancy way to say this reinforces the spaces between vents and reduces extra bulk. The Whisper comes with Catlike's Multi Positioning System, which lets riders adjust the fit of the helmet in multiple directions. You can control both the tightness and up-and-down position of the helmet with just one adjustment point. Read More

Typically, we're used to making certain sacrifices in the name of low weight -- namely, to that of strength. However, this design ...principle is entirely unacceptable for helmets, as protection is a helmet's primary function. Thankfully, though, the engineers at Catlike have continued to push the design envelope by actually increasing strength while lowering weight. Case in point is its new Mixino Helmet. It tips the scales at around 35 grams less than the Whisper Plus, all while incorporating a stronger aramid roll cage and a new vertical fit adjustment system. With protection standing as Catlike' biggest goal, it depends on multiple proprietary technologies in order to achieve this. The Whisper Plus uses a process called In Mold, where the outer and inner layers of the helmet are molded to become one piece. This process increases impact resistance, and improves diffusion of crash energy. For crashes where the back of your head takes the brunt of impact, Catlike incorporated its Low Nape Protection towards the lower rear structure of the helmet. For additional rear protection, the helmet uses a Crash Energy Splitter design that distributes crash energy throughout the helmet, and assures an even absorption of impact along the air intakes. This design is not only a revolution in safety, but an integral aspect of the Mixino's feather-light weight. Adding to the protection, particularly for high-impact, the Mixino features an aramid roll cage. ramid is a class of heat-resistant synthetic fibers that, when combined, create a extremely strong composite that is easy to manipulate. Because of this, you'll see it used in everything from tires, to helmets, and even to ballistic-rated body armor fabric. Outside of safety, Catlike's goal is to provide you with a lightweight helmet that has ample ventilation. Accordingly, the Mixino features the same 39 air vent design found on the Whisper Plus. Likewise, the Mixino uses the same exclusive Dual Flow design that utilizes lar... Read More

Catlike helmets were introduced into the US just a few years ago and they caught our attention with not only their eye-catching st...yle but also their attention to the details most sought after by cyclists -- namely fit and airflow. The Catlike 360 showcases simplicity of shape, fit, and ventilation for riders who want protection, but don't need all the added features of a more expensive helmet. The 360 was designed with both cyclists and skaters in mind. Whether you freeride or freestyle, or even skateboard or roller skate, the 360 is something you won't want to be without. Designed from hi-density foam and a hard shell, it was constructed to fit close to your head. Its rounded shape means that you won't feel wind resistance when you turn your head, as you would if wearing an aero helmet. Catlike used its LNP (Low Nape Protection) in the design. This adds a lower rear structure to the back of the helmet to further protect the back of your head in the event of an impact. This is especially important when participating in disciplines, such as freestyle, where rear impact is just as prevalent as forward impact.Even though the 360 features a very significant amount of solid shell as compared to their Whisper helmet, Catlike still incorporated its Dual Flow Technology. This means that large frontal air intakes are connected to large exit vents located in the rear. Connecting the vents keeps airflow continuous so that you avoid over-heating. The helmet is secured with a quick-release buckle attached to adjustable straps for a perfect fit.The Catlike 360 comes in One size and in the colors: Black city and White city. Read More

Calling the Catlike Vacuum Helmet the most conventional looking helmet in the 2012 Catlike line would be tantamount to arguing tha...t Cippolini's pink skinsuit for the 2005 Giro was his most conservative wardrobe choice. Granted, it's not as immediately memorable as Catlike's top-shelf Whisper Plus (the equivalent to Cippo's zebra-striped skinsuit), but for many of us, that's probably a good thing. More important though, is that the Vacuum is an economical alternative to the Whisper Plus, while retaining the clean lines, complex technologies, and overall striking aesthetic choices that Catlike is best known for. Like all Catlike helmets, the dramatic appearances aren't without rhyme or reason. Each design is intelligently engineered to enhance the helmet's ventilation efficacy while maintaining the strict safety standards established by CPSC. The Vacuum is constructed around Catlike's Air Tube System, which, similar to the structure of the Catlike Sakana (another radical Catlike design that is not currently available on U. S. shores), is a series of small tubes connecting the helmet's segmented 'fins' together. While elegant, the design also cleverly divides the helmet into impact-absorbing crumple zones that dissipate energy at the time of a crash -- not unlike the skeleton of a compact car. These fins strengthen the core structure of the helmet, and allow Catlike's engineers to reduce weight in other areas, giving you a helmet that tips the scales under 300 grams in all three of the available sizes. The fin structure also opens up a wide range of possibilities for ventilation. The Vacuum has 19 generous vents, most of which run lengthwise around the helmet along the Air Tubes. Each forward-facing vent has a matching rear exhaust vent to keep a constant and efficient circulation of cool air over your head while you ride. The Vacuum uses the same MPS (Multi Position System) retention system as the top-shelf Whisper Plus. The MPS is constructed around a rubberized pl.. Read More

For those demanding helmet perfection, there's the Catlike Mixino Movistar Team Helmet, which combines a whole host of technologies to deliver every essential helmet benchmark.Let's start with the obvious: a helmet's primary job is to keep you safe. To that end, Catlike packed the Mixino Movistar full of tech like a woven aramid-fiber cage, polycarbonate shell and polystyrene foam, all of which are fused together using in-mold construction, which diffuses crash energy across the whole helmet, not letting it focus solely at the point of impact. To increase diffusion even further, Catlike developed what it calls a Crash Energy Splitter, which increases the strength of the helmet while splitting energy in the same way in-mold construction does. Catlike also included Low Nape Protection by extending the rear of the helmet to cover you in backwards-facing crashes. With protection covered, Catlike turned to fit. Its MPS eVo micro-dial system expands or contracts thin arms that wrap around your head, and there are two independently adjustable rear head supporters and lateral wing pads that help you adjust volume. MPS eVo also allows vertical adjustment, so even if you're a conehead you'll be able to dial in a killer fit. After all, there's a reason this version of the Mixino is the go-to helmet for team Movistar. Read More

Aero road helmets are all the rage and Catlike wasn't going to be left with the grupetto. It took its highly successful Mixino Hel...met and redefined it into the cutting-edge, wind-cheating Mixino VD2. 0 -- all the features of the original, just faster. Catlike is best known for its high protection standards, and the Mixino VD2. 0 doesn't disappoint. It was designed to the exact specifications as the original. To begin with, it is formed using In-Mold technology -- the inner and outer shell of the helmet are molded to become one piece, not merely glued onto each other. This increases crash resistance and diffusion of energy should a crash occur. The helmet was designed with Low Nape Protection so that your occipitals are protected in the event of an accident. What sets the Mixino even further apart from its competitors is a combination of an ARC roll Cage and Graphene Nano-fibers. The roll cage is an internal structure made from Aramid fibers. In case these fibers sound vaguely familar, they have been used in the aerospace industry. They have been used in conjunction with Graphene fibers to keep weight to a minimum while maximizing protection. Catlike used replaceable Outlast pads on the interior for impressive comfort. These pads use NASA-developed Phase Change Materials (PCM) which actually store and release heat as needed to help regulate body temperature. Holding the Mixino VD2. 0 tightly on your noggin is Catlike's eVo retention system. This utilizes horizontal and vertical pads that are adjusted with micro-wheels as well as customizable padding on the side wings of the helmet. Now, to increase aerodynamic efficiency Catlike covered the honeycomb venting with a solid shell. The impressions of the vents reveal themselves on the exterior of the shell so you won't be stuck with a generic-looking bowl on your head. Air passes cleanly over the helmet saving watts. The Catlike Mixino VD2. 0 is available in sizes Small, Medium, and Large and in the color... Read More
