Catlike is continually listening to the needs of the cycling community. Over the last decade, has been a significant increase in the usage of the bicycle to move around urban areas, especially in the big cities, where this conveyance has become very popular thanks to the advantages it carries: cost efficiency, mobility in traffic and environmentally responsible.
Catlike has developed a new urban helmets line taking Kompact’o and Tako helmets as models of reference. These helmets were already in use by some Catlikers in the cities so we have been doing research on which are the most important features in an urban line; the data collected has been analyzed in order to improve these two helmets.
The new urban helmets line incorporate a cloth visor specially designed for the helmets that can be used in two positions: up and down to protect against sun and rain. In addition, the cloth visor is totally removable thanks to the Velcro hitch system.
The colors selected for the urban line combines functionality with aesthetics. Fluorescent colors provide extra visibility for the cyclists, a very important feature when riding at night or in low visibility weather conditions such as fog or rain.
Kompact’o helmets also incorporates reflective stickers on the rear part in order to maximize the visibility of riders that pedal in traffic.
Looking towards a more vintage style, we’ve selected the color brown in one model of Kompact’o and Tako. This tone is associated with a classy style that lovers of traditional cycling will undoubtedly appreciate.
Our aim when creating this urban helmets line was to keep protecting cyclists around the world no matter where or which discipline they ride and to lend style for the city life.
