The new Mixino is the latest evolution of Catlike design philosophy. It is a lightweight helmet that improves safety by the use of an Aramid roll cage which provides high impact protection.
A micro-dial adjusts the thin arms that wrap around the inside of the helmet, and two rear supports are independently adjustable.
Withtical adjustment and new lateral wings to which different thickness pads canbe attached. This is a helmet that will fit nearly every head shape and allowing you to customize your comfort.
Graphene is a totally new material, derived from graphite, comprised of very interesting physical and chemical properties. Its basic ucture is formed by carbon atoms set out in a hexagonal shape.
This creates layered structures (like a honeycomb) of a thick atom whose rcalation, along with the “Van der Waals” forces, achieve a material up to 200 times more resistant than steel, yet is extremely light.
This material exhibits enormous mechanical resistance and some unique electronic properties. Its extraordinary properties and its potential technical applications have made Graphene one of the most active research fields in materials’ physics.
The Catlike Research, Development, and Innovation Department has managed to incorporate Graphene nano-fibers into the manufacturing of cycling helmets, giving the head of cyclists maximum protection with minimum weight.
MPS eVo (Multi Position System Evolution)
The innovative retention system MPS (Multi-Position-System) allows optimizing the comfort of the helmet thanks to its 4 points adjustment systems. Designed to adapt to any head size.
The total adjustment, the ultra-light wheel of the MPS-eVo allows adjusting the diameter of the retention to the millimeter with every 'click', achieving outstanding stability, with the maximum comfort.
The ergonomic adjustment of this system provides outstanding stability by means of the side wings, which adjust to the temporal area of the scull.
Furthermore, these wings adapt to all head shapes (oval, elipse, oblong), exchanging the different paddings of different thicknesses inside the helmet. It is recommended to remove these wings on round heads.
This exclusive retention system also allows adjusting the vertical position of the retention, preventing any discomfort in the occipital area of the skull.
The rear adjustment enables the movement of the two supports in order to achieve the ideal position, removing any pressure on the central part of the cervical vertebra.
The head is the main temperature sensor of our body. A matter by no means trivial, as excessive heat can cause symptoms of fatigue,zziness and even dehydration, for all of this, and taking into consideration the needs of sportsmen and women, we have designed the Dual Flow (photo) system that provides maximum ventilation.
While the positioning of the vents has been determined by scientific studies, the number of such is more than significant. No less than 39 vents that together with the internal channels favor the constant inflow of air inside the helmet, avoiding overheating.
The unique design of Catlike helmets is not only based on aesthetics. The air intakes have been strategically positioned so that any impact will affect more than one nerve (CES).
In the event of a crash, the energy generated will spread through the honeycomb-type structure, significantly increasing the heads safety.
The Mixino helmet has an inner aramid skeleton (Aramid Roll Cage) or, which is just the same, a robust, resistant fiber that is widely used in the aerospace sector, ballistics and self-protection.
This aramid liner has been treated in its polymer matrix with graphene nano-fibers, which increases the entire mechanical performance, therefore improving impact energy absorption.
Bringing aramid and graphene nano-fibers together has allowed us to improve the helmet safety features, reaching minimum volume and weights. A success thanks to employing innovative materials and the use of nanotechnology developed in the Catlike R+D laboratories.
The Mixino has a design that in case of impact, the head suffers minimum damage. For this, on the inside front part, the helmet has expanded polystyrene, a material with a composition prepared for better absorption of impacts.
In the padding of the Mixino helmet, the Outlast technology uses phase change material (PCM) which absorbs the heat, it stores it and then frees it when needed to achieve an ideal control both of the humidity and temperature.
To illustrate how the Outlast technology works we will set the example of an ice cube inside a glass of water. If the ice melts, this absorbs the heat cooling the water, so that the drink maintains the temperature desired for a longer period of time.
Therefore, the Outlast padding continuously adjusts the skins temperature. If the skin overheats, the heat is absorbed; if on the contrary the skin cools, the heat stored is freed and the ideal temperature is achieved.
