The Catlike Kompact'O features a no frills construction that shaves weight and saves you a few bucks.

This low-volume lid is perfect for competitive road or MTB, with 21 ample air intakes arranged using Catlike's Dual-Flow system. This design connects the large front intakes to large rear exit ports, allowing the helmet to take in cool air and expel hot air, keeping you comfortable during hard efforts and in blistering conditions. An anti-insect net has also been added to protect the front vents from bugs, and a detachable visor keeps the sun at bay.

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 while 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, Catlike combines this efficient temperature regulation and impact protection with comfortable Coolmax padding and an updated, slimmed down retention system.

The Catlike Kompact'O is available in Small, Medium or Large. Various colors with reflective accents. The claimed weight is 270 grams in a size Medium. The Kompact'O includes a detachable visor.

Sizing Details:

  • Small: 51-55cm
  • Medium: 55-58cm

Great if you are bored of the ho-hum

I was really tired of looking at the same swirly race inspired motif on every helmet with color choices ranging form primary red, blue or yellow, to Neon Attack. I was first taken by the aesthetic of the Catlike products. While the elliptical homes are definitely different, the overall shape is sleek and unique.

The fit and finish are incredible. The helmet has the urban cred of a Bern, but weighs less than half of their flagship Allston. The click dial adjuster in the back is easily operated with one hand while riding and has a tight enough ratchet to micro adjust. The ventilation really works which is saying something as it has been a hot autumn (go figure). I really could only complain about the little plastic chevrons above the clips on the straps being a bit chintzy. Small complaint...

I'll touch back when I crash and give everyone a crash performance review. LOL

Nice ventilation, does not hold up over the long haul

This my second and last catlike helmet. I love the ventilation and style. The problem is, they simply do not last. I ride about 6,000 miles a year and these helmets can't take a full year of riding. The first one the retention system where it goes under the impact foam fell out and there is no way to reconnect it. The second one the buckle has failed. I take good care of my equipment and always store everything inside my air conditioned house. These helmets should last longer than a year.

Matte Finish Fails in Tennessee Heat & Humidity

Last summer (June, 2014), I bought this helmet in Matte Black finish to replace a cheap Specialized helmet the interior fitting system of which had failed. BTD had offered a good deal that my bonus points made better. The white version was out of stock, at the time, which is what I wanted for better visibility. I was a little concerned that the matte black finish would not have reflective elements. When it arrived, the black helmet proved to have sufficient white, reflective markings that it didn't render me apparently headless when riding at twilight. Also, it turned out to be about the coolest-looking piece of biking apparel I owned - a fine-looking helmet.

The helmet's fit, however, was not quite crown-of-thorns painful, but was considerably less comfortable than the fit of the cheapest of Specialized's 2011 helmet line-up. The Catlike came with a couple of extra bits of padding and velcro dots to cushion the occiput, but I never did install them. I instead took to riding with a thin 1980's cycling cap which sufficed to reduce skull pain when I tightened the helmet's adjustment wheel.

Southern Middle Tennessee get hot during the summer months with humidity that's high enough most people complain about it. By about the middle or end of July, the matte black helmet had developed what looked like a network of fungal accretions upon its surface. On closer inspection, it appeared the matte black finish had begun to draw-up and crack in many places. If scraped away, discernible underneath was a shiny black plastic. Also, the screws holding the adjustment wheel in place rusted and the wheel, itself (IIRC), broke and the helmet could no longer be tightened to fit.

I contacted BTD and they were very helpful, shipping a white replacement helmet before the week was out, emailing me a return label. Absolutely no hassle or complaints about the customer service.

The white helmet fits a lot like the black helmet. Although it's a lot more visible, it looks a lot less cool than the matte black. The helmet's adjustment system has held up fine, even though the screws holding the adjustment wheel in place have, like those of the black helmet, rusted.

Compared to the cheap Specialized helmet from 2012, the Catlike Kompact'o seems very light, but does not fit as comfortably. The Catlike product does keep my head cooler than the Specialized, and, here in the American South, the bug-netting in front is a much appreciated feature.

I've reviewed this helmet on my blog in a couple of places. Search my user name and Catlike or Kompact'o.

Good Value

This is my second Kompact helmet. I bought it because it of solid construction and low price. The decals did not hold up well to wet weather riding on my older version of the Kompact. The decals on this helmet look a little more substantial.

Good value, shaped for round head not narrow

I liked that this helmet looks a little different than most. Doesn't sit TOO high, but felt like it fit a little small. Didn't fit my (narrower) head very well, so I ended up returning it. Doesn't make it a bad helmet, just not quite the right one for me. Thought the flat black color was cool.

comfort and style, but a little pricey

I do like the looks, and it is decently comfortable.

I don't like where the green strap attaches to the snap - there is a tiny defect in the plastic that sticks out and scratches face. The fix is to move the protective velcro piece around it, but it really does not go there so it doesn't fit the best.

All in all it seems good quality, but for the price I guess I expected a certain lushness and perfection.

Exceptional Helmet

This Helmet is very lite weight, ventilation is super and comfortable. what I like most is the ease to tighten and loosen the bands while i am riding. Most thought is its style and the fact all three colors are the same on my bike.

Good, solid helmet, lightweight helmet.

I haven't had the helmet for a whole season yet, really only for the summer. Air flow is good for hot, muggy Missouri rides and it's nice and light weight. I also like the looks of the helmet. The head strap and interior apparatus are a bit lacking and I'm not sure how long the cranium adjustment will last? I've always had Bell helmets. The last helmet I owned was a Volt. A higher price range helmet with more adjustments and a sturdier looking rear cranium adjustment harness. However, I always wear a cycling cap under my helmet so there is no comfort or movement issues for me with this helmet.

This helmet is better looking than the one you're using.

No crash results to report.Hope to keep it that way. Gave it a Very Nice rating rather than Great because the chin strap must be readjusted every third ride.

Well ventilated.

Before purchasing this helmet I read through the other provided reviews and I found what everyone said was true.

The swiss cheese type holes in the upper part of the helmet keep the top of your head very ventilated as after my ride I noticed the top of my head was bone dry and sweat-less. The other sections of my head not so much, as in the forehead being covered by the front plastic but with 2.5in of plastic protecting your head from the ground, the trade-off of some head to protection is acceptable to me.

I also agree with doubleTrouble. The plastic used for the fastening component under the ears has NOT been cut to a smooth state, it will poke you. I used a nail polisher to grind the points down.

Good for ventilation, meh for supplies used to produce.

Atleast it looks good. Haha.

The best helmet I've owned

This is my second Kompact helmet. I bought the first one in Europe before they were available here... this new one is even better. The straps are more durable and the exterior is much cleaner. I have a small head and most helmets make me look like a mushroom. This is the lowest profile helmet I've found-and I've tried a lot. Light, comfortable and good looking. It's amazing!

Great Helmet, light, easily adjustable, excellent retention system. AND NOT MADE IN CHINA.

I have been riding for 60 years and have had every piece of equipment known to cyclists. I am a very avid advocate of bicycle safety and will NEVER ride with out a helmet. This Catlike Kompact is the best that I have ever owned. It is sutiable for road and trail alike. One might expect to pay a lot more for a comparable helmet. This is made and designed in Spain. The Spanish know what they are doing when it comes to cycling. Just check their bikes and rider's performance in the european bike races and you willl see what I mean.
