Catlike's top-of-the-line Mixino bicycle helmet, whose well-perforated shell is familiar to European racers and fans, is available in the United States this year. Outlast padding inside the $300 helmet is infused with phase change material to absorb and release heat as needed to keep the rider comfortable.
BikeRumor.com's Cory Benson weighs in after testing the helmet for more than six months:
"In the hottest weather (35°C+) the top of my head stayed cool enough (although did need sunscreen) and the pads kept the sweat on my brow mostly in check. I still ended up sweating a good bit on harder efforts, but my head never felt hot."
