Returning to its winning ways.

In 2014, Valverde — while wearing Catlike's Mixino Helmet — racked up over 20 top-five placings in races like the Tour, Lombardia, the Vuelta, the Worlds and the top overall spot of the season. Given that success, it's safe to assert that the Mixino is a winning formula, and doesn't require any real tampering for 2015. You can rest assured that the Mixino is light and fast enough to keep up with anything your legs can produce, but Catlike knows that the helmet's first job is safety.

In the pursuit of safety, Catlike has developed multiple proprietary technologies that are unique as its stylized design philosophy. The Mixino uses a process called In Mold that combines layers to increase resistance to impact and diffusion of dangerous forces during crashes. This protection is also extended to your occipital lobe courtesy of Catlike's Low Nape Protection. The helmet's Crash Energy Splitter design is responsible for diffusing impact throughout its Aramid cage. Aramid is a composite of heat-resistant synthetic fibers. It's easy to manipulate during manufacture but durable enough for use in things like ballistic-rated body armor fabric and, yes, bicycle helmets.

We admit that we don't always think "safety first," and the Mixino checks the other items off of our list with its low weight and ample ventilation. The Mixino features the same 39 air vents arranged in the same Dual Flow design found on the Whisper Plus. Dual Flow creates a constant airstream through the helmet, directing cooling air across your head to the rear exhaust ports. Catlike uses a patented technology that it calls an Airtube System to maintain the Mixino's structural integrity despite all of that negative space. This system uses air-filled hollow elastic tubes that create an inner mesh within the helmet, reinforcing the open design, and eliminating the need for bulky construction material.

For comfortable adjustability, the Mixino features an adjustable micro-dial at the rear that controls the overall retention-level of the helmet. Catlike calls this its MPS eVo system, and it expands or contracts the newly-designed, thin-style arms that wrap inside of the helmet. Additionally, the Mixino has two independently-adjustable head supports at the rear, and two new lateral wing pads that are also adjustable. Even better, these pads are interchangeable, meaning that you're able to use varying thicknesses depending on your head size. Finally, the Mixino allows for vertical adjustments, so nearly every head size is able to be enjoy a pro level of fit.

Good Ventilation & Fit, Light Weight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Very pleased with the Mixino. Small fits my oval size 7 noggin with a thin cap better than any helmet I've worn (many from Kask, Giro, and Rudy). Fit is consistent around entire perimeter, with no pressure spots. Feels very secure. Great ventilation for summer, too much for winter. Straps require some care; side buckles below ear are easy to release inadvertently. Definitely looks like it rides high on head, at least from the front, but light weight, excellent ventilation and (especially) fit make this one a keeper.

Great Helmet!

    I really like this helmet. The fit is fantastic for my slightly oval head. I has great ventilation, and seems very high quality.
    It is a steal at the price Backcounty is selling it for.

    Catlike Mixino!

    Great helmet for keeping cool in the southern California heat! Fits well and the straps have been updated from the whisper and function better with less movement. Whisper saved my dome in a bad crash so I purchased the Mixino and couldn't be happier. Wish it was available in more solid colors.

    I found some good and some no so great on this helmet, mostly good. The fit retention system is really nice and ventilation is about as good as it gets. The only thing I didn't love was on my small narrow head it looked a little big.

    Amazingly Cool! Light & Airy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this helmet in every way except for the chin straps. Cool, fits nicely, lightweight, looks good, easily adjustable, and I can feel the cool air rushing across my head. The only negative preventing a 5-star review is the chin strap. Poorly engineered. Front helmet strap anchor is positioned too far forward on your face and the overly-thin fabric sticks on your skin like a wet noodle. The clip/clasp on the chin is cheaply designed too. It's a cycling Faux Pas to wear your sunglasses under the helmet straps, but this helmet almost necessitates the practice. To avoid this embarrassment I twist the straps a bit to alleviate the facial annoyance.
