DESCRIPTION

Since last year, the Catlike R+D team has been collaborating with researchers from the University of Granada to study the performance of cycling helmet shapes using different materials in the wind tunnel located in CEAMA (Centro Andaluz de Medio Ambiente, Spain). The main variables of Wind Tunnel tests are aerodynamics and ventilation. Catlike collects this data and uses it to develop new helmets.

RAPID, is Catlike's latest helmet that offers excellent performance and supreme aerodynamics without losing ventilation. TT helmets with a long teardrop shaped tail are very aerodynamic in ideal conditions where a rider is able to keep their head straight and looking up at all times during a race. But once a rider looks down or to the side, the long tail sticks out into the air and creates a lot of drag. Recent research suggests that the best design for a TT helmet where the rider moves their head, a lot is a shorter, more rounded tail that is aerodynamic in all conditions, not just when the rider’s head is up.
