The instantly recognizable Whisper offers industry leading ergonomics and superior safety in a head turning package.

Massive ventilation is provided thanks to the 39 signature 'honeycomb' air intakes. The vents aren't just there for looks, they're arranged using Catlike's Dual-Flow system, a design which connects the large front intakes to large rear exit ports. This construction allows the helmet to take in cool air and expel hot air, keeping you comfortable during hard efforts and in blistering conditions.

The arrangement of the vents is also critical to the helmet's safety thanks to a technology Catlike calls CES, or Crash Energy Splitter. By placing a large number of specially shaped vents throughout the shell, they're able to ensure impact stress is efficiently distributed throughout the helmet, rather than being localized in one spot.

The shell itself is constructed using an In-Mold process, meaning the rigid outer shell is joined directly to the polystyrene core, furthering the helmet's resistance to impact by also working to diffuse stress in the event of a crash. Next, LNP (Lower Nape Protection) is added; this extension to the lower rear section of the helmet provides additional protection to the lower neck and back of the head.

Finally, this new Whisper model features the MPS Evo retention system reserved for Catlike's top helmets. Separate horizontal and vertically adjusting pads have been strategically placed for lateral and occipital support (the sides and back of the skull). This allows the helmet to accommodate heads of all shapes sizes. The fit of each support is controlled by a lightweight Micro-Metrical wheel for easy on the bike customization. Inside the helmet, replaceable Coolmax pads offer moisture regulation and cushioning.

The Catlike Whisper is available in Small, Medium or Large. Various colors. Actual weight: 301g (size Medium).

Catlike-light, cool, comfortable

Very lightweight, extremely well ventilated helmet. Notice less neck fatigue following long days in the saddle. Draws mostly favorable comments for appearance. Some cheesehead teasing but I don't care having lived in Wisconsin for nearly 50 years.

Really glad I bought this helmet!

I have always wanted a Catlike helmet after seeing them used in the Tour de France last year. But they were always priced a little too high for my budget. When Bike Tires Direct put these on sale for $160, I had to bite! Boy, am I glad I did.

The name Whisper is perfect for this helmet, as it is very quiet. The unique design also brings in cooling air from almost all directions. I am a very large guy and this helmet was easy to adjust and fits really well.

Style, fit, light, and vents like a champ!

Size M fits me perfect. Forgot it was there within minutes on the 1st ride (60 miles). Cools the Texas heat well with all of the vents, and has style to spare IMO.

Love this lid! First Catlike helmet after years of Giro. May have to get another in a different color, or try the Mixino as well.

Looks great, feels light. Hard to fit. Straps have no padding

Expensive. Feels a little cheap.

This is a hot helmet!

If you ride in hot weather, this is the helmet for you. The number of vents create sufficient air flow keeping your head as comfortable as possible. And, of course, given the number of vents, the helmet is incredibly light. It also is an attention getter given the unique style (caused by the number and shape of the vents) and striking color(s). (I bought green.) The helmet seems to run small so consider that when sizing.

nice Helmet, but get the Whisper Plus

I like this helmet, it looks good, and it has great ventilation. I had whisper plus before this and the whisper plus is more comfortable, the way the straps work on this helmet differ form the whisper plus, and these are kinda wonky.

Great Helmet

This helmet is great. The fit is adjustable via pads for various shapped heads and it is great on hot rides. My head always feels cool. There is no lack of ventilation here. The green was a nice bonus as it matches my club colors perfectly.
