At its core, a helmet's purpose is fairly transparent -- avoid a trip to the hospital after a crash. However, every helmet maker takes different paths to achieve this. And with rigorous certification systems, you can be assured that most helmets will generally protect you, but the question remains -- what levels of comfort are you sacrificing for safety With the Catlike Whisper Helmet, the answer is none. To achieve this, Catlike implemented multiple proprietary technologies. The Whisper uses a process called In Mold, where the outer and inner layers of the helmet are molded to become one piece. This process increases impact resistance, and improves diffusion of crash energy. For crashes where the back of your head takes the brunt of impact, Catlike incorporated its Low Nape Protection towards the lower rear structure of the helmet. For additional rear protection, the helmet uses a Crash Energy Splitter design that distributes crash energy throughout the helmet, and assures an even absorption of impact along the air intakes. This design is not only a revolution in safety, but an integral aspect of the Whisper's feather-light weight. Outside of safety, Catlike's goal is to provide you with a lightweight helmet that has ample ventilation. The Whisper's 39 air vents are a good start, but Catlike didn't stop there. The Whisper features an exclusive Dual Flow design that utilizes large frontal air intakes that connect from the helmet's fore position to the oversized exit vents at the rear. Dual Flow creates a constant airstream through the helmet, and thus prevents overheating. This design also limits the material needed for construction, which would be a major safety issue for most manufacturers. However, Catlike uses a patented technology that they call an Airtube System. This system uses air-filled hollow elastic tubes that create an inner mesh within the helmet. This system reinforces the open design of the Whisper, and eliminates the need for bulky constructio...
