Catlike Mixino Road Helmet 2014
The 2014 Mixino is the latest evolution of Catlike design philosophy. This is a helmet that will fit nearly every head shape and allowing you to customize your comfort. Catlike helmets have been extensively used in professional cycling, most recently by the Movistar Team with Alejandro Valverde, Nairo Quintana Rojas, Alex Dowsett and Rui Costa wearing a Catlike Mixino helmet to victory in the 2013 World Championships.
The unique Catlike design characterised for crossing nerves gives a plus in safety. Any impact will share more than one nerve splitting the crash energy on many points and absorbing it in the most efficient way.
The helmet has an internal Aramid fibre roll cage this material is used in aerospace and ballistic applications for its strength properties. The Aramid cage provides a higher protection in case of impact supporting the entire helmet structure.
The SEPR (Shell Extended Protection Reinforcement) on the helmet brim gives protection in case of hits preventing from deterioration because of use.
The helmet offers 39 big size air vents that allow a constant Air Flow from frontal to rear area and an effective cooling system. One of the most ventilated helmet in the market.
MPS eVo is the new ultra-light retention system. The system has 2 long and thin arms and 2 lateral ergonomics wings that allow a perfect adaptation of the head perimeter giving maximum stability.
The rear supports on the MPS eVo rests on two points of the occipital bone freeing the central part of the head of any pressure. The supports are mobile in non-allergic and soft megol guaranteeing best stability and comfort.
The wheel retention has a micro-metrical adjusting system in order to personalize easily the helmet adjustment with only a hand.
Outlast® technology originally developed for NASA utilises phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. It is used for the internal padding of the helmet.
