Since last year, the Catlike R+D team has been collaborating with researchers from the University of Granada to study the performance of different materials and cycling helmets shapes in the wind tunnel located in Andalusia, Spain.
The main variables of these tests are aerodynamics and ventilation. Catlike uses this data to develop RAPID that offers excellent performance and supreme aerodynamics without losing ventilation.
Another relevant aspect in this study is the help of Movistar Team cyclists in the development of the first version of RAPID. For elite athletes as they, it is essential to work with the best materials. A good helmet can make the difference of precious a seconds. Thanks to Movistar’s collaboration Catlike is working in a different RAPID’s versions that will represent the perfect helmet’s option for every triathlete and cyclist in the world.
While you are waiting to wear RAPID, the most advanced helmet for chrono and triathlon follow it with Movistar team in the most important international competitions. All the definitve versions of RAPID will be officialy presented at Eurobike Show 2014 and later will be available in the shops all over the world.
