Item # KAT000I

Leaf well enough alone.

Considering all the accolades it's won from the media and the votes in dollars and miles it's enjoyed with cyclists the world over, Catlike had no call to branch out in different design directions with the latest Leaf Helmet. Fortunately, it heeded that lack of a call, and the Leaf returns unchanged for another generation of inimitable comfort at an unbeatable price.

The Leaf's success may owe to Catlike's roots in road helmet technology, which have been implemented here to great effect. Like the road-specific Whisper, the Leaf uses a process called In-Mold, where the outer and inner layers of the helmet are molded to become one piece. This process increases impact resistance and improves diffusion of crash energy. For crashes where the back of your head takes the brunt of impact, Catlike incorporated its Low Nape Protection toward the lower rear structure of the helmet.

Outside of safety, Catlike's goal is to provide you with a lightweight helmet that has ample ventilation. The Leaf's 23 air intakes feed into the Dual Flow design, which involves a series of internal air channels and rear exhaust ports. Dual Flow creates a constant air stream through the helmet to keep you cool during hot days on the singletrack.

For adjustment, Catlike implemented its patented Multi Positioning System Evo (MPS eVo) at the rear of the helmet. Essentially, this system allows the adjustment of the rear section of the helmet in multiple dimensions. So, with one retention adjustment, you can change the position of the helmet's rear both up-and-down and open-and-close. Two final details finish the Leaf: a sun and rain visor and an insect net. The former speaks for itself, but the latter is an ingenious inclusion that keeps any unwanted visitors from getting stuck in your vents or hair. If you've ever been stung by a helmet-trapped bee, then you'll appreciate this. If you haven't, well, we think you'll still appreciate it.

Comfortable, lightweight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very comfortable. The visor is handy if you're riding west after work and still want to see the trail. Lots of adjustability in the head cage and straps.

Only downside is that the visor attachment points aren't super sturdy. It won't fall off (because of the way it's attached to the straps), but it was a little disappointing given the overall quality of the helmet. That said, I'd still buy it again – very comfortable and well ventilated.

Awesome, comfortable helmet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

LOVE this helmet! Has some serious ventilation, and really nice padding. Actually really comfortable for a helmet. My head feels nice and secure. Also love the matte purple color although the visor and helmet are not the same shade of purple. The adjustable visor is also pretty cool although it doesn't move much. I also love that the ratcheting strap at the neck is flexible enough where I can get my ponytail in between the strap and the base of the helmet (very important when you're a girl rider with a ton of hair!). Super happy with this helmet.

Only problem I saw? People think it says "EATLIKE" on the side! Catlike should modify their font a little so the "C" looks more like a C and not an E.

Great review Leah. Hope you find lots of time to use your Leaf this summer!
