The Catlike Cloud 352 is their new aero helmet that comes with two different aero top covers, one perforated and one solid. The top covers bolt on, and the perforated piece uses more than 300 small holes to allow air flow while still directing the excess smoothly over the top. The solid one further improves aerodynamics, but can also be used to keep rain or freezing air off your noggin. Check out closeups, video and more below…
You could shed a few grams and open up the ventilation by leaving the cover off but a) it wouldn’t look nearly as good, and b) it may not be as safe. In other words, the helmet is designed to be used with one of the covers in place.
Inside is ample padding and channeling, and larger front and rear vents provide far more opportunity for air flow than most modern aero road helmets. The straps use a new sliding connection point where they meet under the ears for quicker, easier adjustment.
The Cloud 352 became available in Europe in late April, U.S. in July.
The Olula is a new mid-level helmet with their dual position (height, tightness) cranium adjustment. It borrows their trademark aesthetic from the Mixing, but with a less porous, low profile design that sits lower on the head. Available in Europe now, U.S. in July.
Shoes were launched in Europe last year, and they came to the U.S. at the beginning of April. Both use the same uppers, but road uses a graphene/carbon sole and the MTB one has a more flexible graphene/nylon sole with treads. Dual BOA closures and a smal Velcro strap keep it snug along with grabby textured material inside the heels. Whole sizes only thanks to a stretchable one-sided tongue that keeps it form fitting to fill in the gaps.
