    Overall length 385mm. Perfect for Sennheiser MKH 416, Schoeps CMIT 5 etc.

    Main Benefits:

    • Superb acoustic transparency - the open shell structure with no parallel surfaces greatly reduces room-tone effects & provides a clean frequency response;
    • Massive wind noise reduction - asymmetric basket covered with 3D-Tex® material provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence & acoustic impedance. An optional Cyclone Windjammer can be used for the most extreme weather conditions;
    • Advanced shock isolation - with industry-leading Rycote Lyre® microphone suspension and exclusive Floating Basket Suspension (Pat. Pending) with built-in Lyre technology, for additional vibration isolation between basket and pole;
    • Quick & Easy - unique Z-Locking System with magnetic locking for instant windshield removal/attachment;
    • Lightweight, durable construction & materials - to withstand extreme field use.

    Advanced 3D-Tex®, for superior performance.

    All Cyclone models feature our advanced 3D-Tex® material. This provides a neutral appearance and superior performance over standard basket solutions, with excellent acoustic transparency and superb attenuation of wind-noise. Covering a lightweight yet durable chassis, Cyclone models are designed to withstand the extremes of the field for reliable, daily use – to deliver the consistent results location audio professionals depend on.

    The industry-leading Cyclone windshield, available in Small, Medium and Large.

    Rycote’s flagship Cyclone range features next-generation wind and handling noise isolation for discerning audio professionals. All Cyclone baskets feature our advanced 3D-Tex® material. This durable windshield system possesses outstanding, consistent performance while being easy to maintain as it does not use fur. The Cyclone is truly evolutionary, and now we have taken it a step further.

    Superb acoustic transparency.

    The Cyclone has superb acoustic transparency. Designed with an open shell structure consisting of curved contours and no straight or parallel surfaces, it greatly reduces room-tone effects inherent in conventional tubular windshield designs.

    Even greater microphone wind protection.

    The unique design of Cyclone shifts the overall bulk to the basket front. This aerodynamically efficient asymmetric basket covered with 3D-Tex material provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance, resulting in wind-noise reduction comparable to the combined modular-style windshield / fur cover performance. In truly extreme weather conditions, an optional Cyclone Windjammer can be used to deliver wind-noise reduction that far exceeds any other windshield system available today.
