Cat-Ears are proven to be one of the best Wind Noise* reduction products of their kind (see chart).
They have been independently tested, reviewed, and recommended by Bicycling and Outside Magazines.
INTRODUCING our SMALLEST AirStreamzTM, based on our PileTechTM materials engineering, recommended for Club to Competitive Cyclists.
Aero-acoustically developed, AirStreamzTM are made from soft pile materials that interact with oncoming wind (dampen / dissipate / deflect) – reducing the intensity of noise producing wind turbulence.
Cat-Ears products are sound permeable for secure road cycling. “Wind Noise can inhibit one’s ability to distinguish traffic noise. Cat-Ears don’t restrict hearing whilst others I’ve tried do.” – Adventure Cycling Association.
*Wind Noise is a complex phenomenon spanning aerodynamics, acoustics, and the physiology of human hearing. The amount experienced depends on factors like: 1) speed, 2) riding position, 3) head shape, 4) turbulence, and so on. With Cat-Ears, wind noise levels are reduced by 14-16 dBA between 20 and 20k Hz. This can be a reduction in sound pressure level of ~75%. But microphones and ears behave otherwise. And whilst the amount of perceived wind noise reduction averages ~60%, we stand in the back of our products as one of the best devices of their kind on the market. Material effectiveness has also been tested at Antioch Univers
“Cat-Ears work dramatically well. I found I used to be enjoying rides more, simply because I could hear more of what I wanted to, and less of what I didn’t.” – Bicycling
Designed with air ‘drift through’ porosity, AirstreamzTM wick away perspiration.
