Catlike Mixino Helmet
Catlike helmets are among the most distinct cycling products on the market, and though the Spanish company's designs have inspired others to take similar visual cues and shapes, Catlike helmets are immediately recognizable. The Mixino has been a favorite of pro cyclists and enthusiasts due the overall lightweight, incredible ventilation and the singular, balanced feel of the helmet. Especially popular with riders who spend a lot of time out in the heat, as well as those who love to climb mountains, the Mixino's air intake and exhaust system is known as Dual Flow which provides optimal thermal regulation with a combination of large front and rear vents linked by internal channels for incredible airflow. The air travels into and through the internal structure of the helmet, "mixing" the incoming flow with the heat and perspiration coming off the skull and releases it out the back. What this does is create a more even climate on the head, not just hot and cool segments from vents that align front and rear. You stay drier, and more refreshed.
This outstanding system is only one key to overall comfort, which is where this Catlike helmet really shines. The MPS eVo retention system is designed to fit any head size and is super comfortable even when the helmet is tight and secure. The wheel can be operated with one hand and has micro-clicks for a perfect adjustment. Side, height and rear adjustments can all be tailored with the MPS eVo fitting system. The pads of the Mixino feature, a Thermy-Tex a permanent antibacterial and super-absorbent treatment. The application interrupts the development and reproduction of bacteria as it stops the formation of odors, absorbs sweat quickly and is totally breathable and washable. The padding is complemented by the airflow of the helmet structure in this process. The Mixino's physical balance is built into the shape, retention system and structure. All helmets are by necessity weighted towards the rear, but how that weight is distributed and carried makes a huge difference. Catlike seems to have found a way to create helmets that rarely need to be adjusted, which is just one less thing to think about on the road.
Like all cycling helmets sold the Mixino worn for safety, but Catlike takes the Mixino as far as possible with cutting edge technologies so you can have Maximum protection in a super well-ventilated and feather light helmet. The front of the Mixino has a Shock Absorption System consisting of special expanded polystyrene for better absorbing front impacts. The Aramid roll cage is high tech, employing Graphene to keep the weight light, yet add more strength and resilience hold the helmet together with an internal web of extremely tough fibers. The Crash Energy Splitter refers to the honeycomb structure that spreads impact force through several cells significantly increasing safety, by diffusing energy away from the impact site. Graphene delivers a protective layer 200 time stronger than steel. The overall effect of this graphene-aramid inner skeleton, when used with the graded EPS foam shell, is significant because while impact energy is dispersed at impact, the structure of the helmet holds together, still offering safety, as many cycling crashes are not single impact events. Head protection is crucial until the event is over. The Mixino features EPS and PPE foam that has an eco-friendly creation process, is recyclable, and can sustain significant impact while maintaining protection. A combination of responsible and practical design is always welcome.
We enjoy Catlike's helmets for their light weight, flair and features, as well as the fact that not every other cyclist is wearing one. But we don't have to sacrifice performance or safety in the process. The Catlike Mixino makes a bold statement and separates you from the pack as you ride off the front in comfort. The ultimate compliment one can pay a helmet is that you simply don't think about it while you ride. The Mixino delivers that experience, and much more.
