I have tried many helmets in my many years of cycling and nothing compares to the Catlike Maximo. As advertised, it provides excellent ventilation with its numerous air pocket design. The tension settings on the sides are unique and give you a great fit. The helmet is very light. At times, I have to check that I remembered to put on my helment as it is that comfortable and light. Best of all the helmet looks really cool. You won't be disappointed.
Use the helmet for mid to long range road bike rides. Ultra light weight and super comfortable. I really have not found a down side to this helmet.
I am very happy with the Catlike Mixino helmet. It fits my head very well. It is comfortable to wear, and easily accommodates wearing a casquette under the helmet. It is lightweight, but sturdy. The interior adjustments are easy to use and help secure the helmet nicely. The airflow is excellent. The overall quality seems very good, but I've only used my helmet for a few months now (I'm a recreational cyclist). My only complaint is that this helmet is very expensive.
I've owned numerous helmets over the years and I've never owned one that I would enthusiastically recommend, until the Mixino.
This is my third Catlike helmet and I love it! Great fit, great air flow and great look. I have not proven the crash technology but I trust the product to perform as advertised if needed.
This my second Mixino as my first was a pale-pink version (Giro d'Italia inspired) which I bought on clearance a few years ago. I love that helmet but as it drew more attention than I might have liked, I wanted to mix things up. I absolutely love the feel and the look, and as someone with a bigger dome, I can attest to the fact that it is not easy to find a quality helmet that does not appear gargantuan around my big old melon. Hard to imagine a better helmet.
As a high-end helmet this one is lightweight, as it should be for the price. It is comfortable but not exceptionally so. The ventilation does seem to be better than average. I can't comment on the claimed superior safety features, as, thankfully, I have not crash tested it. If the manufacturer's claims regarding its impact safety are true, then that also might justify a premium price for the helmet. After all, why else do we wear these things.
Bought this helmet on sale, so I thought it was an okay deal. Now that I have the helmet, I think it was a very good deal. The helmet is a little expensive, but now that I have it I can point out its many virtues fits like a glove because it's so adjustable, very light and great fit for me, breaths like no other helmet, low profile close fitting, not a big bubble head like a lot of other helmets.
Picked this up during an awesome sale to replace my old and well used Giro Atmos. Unlike the Atmos, the Mixino does not produce pressure points on my head after hours on the bike. It just plain old fits my head better. I've found it to be lighter than the Atmos and have better ventilation. So far this fall, I've had no trouble dialing in the fit with a cap on underneath it. It's highly adjustable and easy to make adjustments to. Overall, a great product that has exceeded my expectations. Give it a shot.
I ride with this helmet on the road all the time now. The thckness is greater than most helmets. I also think that they are very stylish, About 6 weeks ago going down a steep hill with a slight left turn my tubular rolled off the wheel and I went down really hard going about 30-35 MPH. My whole left side of the body was impacted. Road Rash on the arms. Pinched nerve in my shoulder from impact and a Black and Blue mark that turmned deep purple the size biiger than a football. My head hit the ground hard and slightly cracked this helmet but no injuries to my head. I am convinced that this is the best protection helmet ever.Slightly disappointed that Catlike has no crash replacement policy ( they did offer a [$] discount off of retail, big deal) but Bike Tires did give me a [%] discount to replace.
Bought this helmet because I've seen it on club rides and it seemed to really have lots of flow-through and looked cool. Not disappointed, this thing really flows the air, like you don't even have a helmet on. It's comfortable, but fits odd compared to the other well known brand names - it's really oval shaped, not round. It took a while to figure out but I got it to fit well and really like it. It just took a bit of fiddling. I got it on sale for a really good price plus my BTD club points so I'm satisfied, but would not have paid full retail which is way over the top for a helmet.
I replaced my Catlike Whisper Plus with the Mixino over a month ago, and I've been very pleased with it. The fit is much better, the helmet is lighter, and the ventilation is the best I've had. It fits as well as the high end Giro Helmets I've used. The Mixino fits better than the Whisper Plus did on my round head. I particularly like the adjustment wheel at the back, which allows me to easily adjust to a headband or cap underneath the helmet. The ventilation, weight and fit of this helmet are all excellent.
I have ridden with Gyro and Bell helmets and this is by far my favorite. Easy adjustments and the thumb screw on the back of the helmet is perfect for fine adjustments. Straps are comfortable and easily adjustable. As advertised the airflow is great. Rode 200km in 90 degrees in Darwin, Australia and forgot I was wearing a helmet. Got a great deal from BTD.
