Cat-Ears are the best selling / most effective wind noise reduction (WNR) products of their kind (see comparison charts).
They have been independently tested / recommended by Bicycling, Bike Radar, Road Bike Review, and Outside Magazines.
Our NEW AirStreamzTM, based on PileTechTM materials science / engineering, are designed for Casual to Competitive Cyclists.
Engineered based on aerodynamic / acoustic research, and wind tunnel developed, AirStreamzTM are made from acoustic pile materials that dampen / dissipate / deflect oncoming wind while reducing the intensity of noise producing turbulence. All Cat-Ears products are sound permeable for safe road cycling. “Wind Noise can inhibit one’s ability to distinguish traffic noise, often a first line of defense in an urban setting. Cat-Ears don’t restrict hearing while others I’ve tried do.” (Adventure Cycling Association) Our materials have also been tested for effectiveness at Antioch University.
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 is a reduction in sound pressure level of ~80%. But microphones and ears behave differently. And while the amount of perceived wind noise reduction can vary, we stand behind our products as the most effective WNR devices of their kind on the market.
“Cat-Ears work dramatically well. I found I was enjoying rides more, simply because I could hear more of what I wanted to, and less of what I didn’t.” (Bicycling)
Designed with aero-acoustic porosity, AirstreamzTM are made from polyester for moisture dissipation.
