Evolution

Rycote continues to push their windshield kits to another level with the creation of the Nano Shield. Although the blimp shape may look familiar from afar, a closer look reveals several new design and engineering features that make it Rycote's most advanced windshield kit yet.

Nano Shield

Setting a new standard: The Nano Shield offers an enhanced level of wind protection paired with improved acoustic transparency. The kits are smaller and on average weigh 30% lighter than Modular Windshield Kits. The new advanced Lyre® mounts are also more compliant and offer better handling noise reduction. Overall the Nano Shield Kits raise the bar for performance and versatility.

Mix-n-Match Basket Design

The Nano Shield kits use a unique magnetic locking basket design which can be configured to fit various microphone sizes by simply swapping out basket halves. Each size of basket half can interlock with any other size. They also have two manual locking sliders to hold everything secure and noise free. Quickly and easily access mics by simply pulling the halves apart.  

Lighter, Smaller & More Flexible

The Nano Shield kits are on average 30% lighter than standard kits and have a smaller footprint when used with the same microphones. The basket shell is made from semi-rigged material that combines strength with flexibility. Layers of extra wind shielding can be added as you move from indoors to outdoors.

Advanced Lyre Mounts

Rycote has advanced Rycote's patented Lyre mount and redesigned them specifically for the Nano Shield kits. While the basic shape might look similar, the material, thickness, center of gravity and mechanical properties have been engineered to provide a more compliant handling response in the direction the microphone is pointing whilst giving more stability in other directions to prevent mics from ‘bottoming-out’ or moving side-to-side.

No Tools Required!

The Lyre mounts and mounting bar on the Nano Shield can be adjusted, repositioned or swapped out by loosening / tightening the thumbwheel attached to the bar. Likewise, the swivel arm can be repositioned by loosening the friction braking wheel with interchangeable adaptors for an integrated PCS tip or 3/8″ thread. 

RF Filter & Low Cut XLR

The kits come supplied with low-profile XLR cables that have both an active in-line RF filter and switchable 80Hz low cut (requires phantom power). Versions of the cable with switchable 60Hz low cut, MZL, Digital Mics and others will also be available. 

What’s Included

Nano Shield Kits come complete and ready to use out of the box. The basket design and available layers of shielding allow you to customize the level of wind protection to meet your needs. In addition, the patented mounting bar and Lyre mounts can be repositioned, swapped out and taken apart without the need for any tools.
