Description

A cat for the commute.

To most Americans, Catlike might only conjure up images of the professional peloton. However, Europeans have long known that Catlike also produces helmets, like the mountain-focused Tako Helmet, that extend well beyond its road racing roots. The Tako is a slightly modified version of the venerable Whisper Plus helmet, and it combines an attractive design with features that make it better suited for the dirt over the tarmac.

Not surprisingly, Catlike managed to do this without compromising anything in terms of safety. Instead, the Tako benefits from the same Crash Energy Splitter (CES) technology that's found in the Whisper Plus. Essentially, this design incorporates multiple 'ribs' that run across the helmet. These ribs diffuse crash energy between the helmet's vents, thoroughly reducing the force of impact on the skull.

For comfort, the Tako features 23 air intakes, with the front vents incorporating an insect screen that prevents unwanted, and stinging, hitchhikers. Additionally, Catlike has included a wheel retention system at the rear of the helmet that allows for a nearly infinite level of retention adjustment. Even better, it's simple to operate with one hand when you're on the go. Lastly, the Tako also includes a removable visor that makes adjusting to your environment a simplified affair.

The Catlike Tako Helmet is available in the sizes Medium and Large and in the colors Matte Black, Matte Blue, and Matte White.

Good Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great helmet for the price point. It is comfortable and vents well. I got a medium and it is comparable to a Giro size Medium. The guts of the helmet seem minimal, but I haven't yet decided if it's a good or a bad thing yet. I only give it 4 stars because I'm used to a sleek Giro Atmos and this one looks a little funny on my head.
