The Catlike Whisper Plus Road Helmet is the brand’s top-of-the-line offering and the model popularly used by MoviStar’s cycling team. At first glance, the helmet’s design appears to be downright organic, as if it has been directly inspired by a honeycomb. But actually, the Whisper Plus has been formed to provide major airflow with a total of 39 vents and the brand’s very own dual flow ventilation technology.
Even when riding slow, you can feel a great amount of air entering the Whisper’s top and front vents, passing over your head and going out the back of the helmet. Aside from this one-of-a-kind design, the Whisper Plus helmet is also known for its other excellent features, including the in-mold construction, MPS suspension, crash energy splitter, and low nape protection system.

A closer look at the Catlike Whisper Plus
In-mold construction process
Helmets from Catlike are engineered with an innovative In-mold construction process. In a nutshell, the outer shell of the helmet and its polystyrene inner are fused together while in the mold, resulting into a stronger bond throughout the whole surface area. This enhances the helmet’s resistance to impact and boosts the energy dispersion while retaining a nicely sculpted design and keeping weight to a minimum.
The MPS (Multi-Position System) suspension of the Catlike Whisper Plus utilizes a rubberized plastic strap which attaches into a socket on the helmet’s shell. This follows down the side of the head and curves around to the back, suspended by nylon web straps.
The rubberized plastic strap is squidgy, so it conforms to your shape naturally and there’s no need to worry about it getting deformed while inside your bag either. A pair of lateral adjusters with push button quick release is also present, connecting across the back of your head for circumferential adjustment.
Plus, the entire system can slide up or down the rear web straps too. So no matter if it’s up, down, or around, this road helmet will accommodate you comfortably.
Dual flow ventilation
Catlike knows that effective ventilation is critical to comfort and performance for long rides in hot weather. Because of this, they invented the Dual flow ventilation system that utilizes large molded vents upfront for channeling air over your head and into the matching rear exhausts. As a result, you get constant air flow within the helmet, while driving out moisture and hot air to give you a fresh and comfortable feel all the time.
Crash Energy Splitter
The helmets from Catlike are not only based on cool and unique-looking designs but also made with safety and structural integrity in mind. The Catlike Whisper Plus is a prime example of this fact, with its strategically-placed air vents that splits and distributes the impact energy along the channels of the helmet. This allows the impact energy to be absorbed in the most effective way possible.
The Crash Energy Splitter or CES also helps the helmet eliminate excess material and reduce the overall weight while creating designs that are visually stunning. In addition, there’s also the LNP, or Low Nape Protection system for further coverage and protection for the back of your head.
The Catlike Whisper Plus Road Helmet comes in three sizes (small, medium, and large) and is available in different colors (White, Cervelo White, White/Carbon, Red/White, Matte Black, and Rainbow). It weighs 266 grams and is covered by the company’s 1-year limited warranty on parts and service.
