Cyclone Large Windshield Kit

The Cyclone is the result of more than a decade of continuous development. Our design and engineering teams have focused on each component to build an all-new windshield system from the ground up. Everything has been considered, nothing overlooked because to design a windshield system this advanced, everything counts. Alone, every one of these advancements is a performance breakthrough. Together, they are the Cyclone, the world’s most advanced microphone windshield and shock-mount system.

The Cyclone has been designed with ease of set-up and use as a priority for the location sound professional. The windshield basket design uses a magnetic Z-Locking System that can be opened and closed in the blink of an eye – using just one hand. Reassembly is automatic as components magnetically snap into perfect alignment.

The structure was developed using state-of-the-art design tools with computer-generated simulations to generate a frame that achieves the ideal balance of location robustness with minimal weight. With an aerodynamically efficient asymmetric shape, it is covered with our new-age 3D-Tex® material. This provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance resulting in such a level of wind noise reduction that a fur cover is unnecessary. For extreme “weather warning” conditions an optional Windjammer allows previously impossible recordings.

Any structure can transmit mechanical vibrations and radiate them as acoustic noise. Moreover natural resonances, dependent on materials and mass, will amplify certain frequencies and give this a characteristic spectrum. Windshield baskets are no exception, so a small proportion of handling noise links to the microphone through the air, bypassing any immediate suspension system.
While Rycote uses its industry-leading Lyre® microphone suspension to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise, the Cyclone takes the Lyre principle and incorporates it in a Floating Basket Suspension. This innovative technique provides vibration isolation between basket and pole, thus attenuating handling noise at source.

Cyclone, Large premium windshield system for shotgun microphones. This lightweight, durable system provides transparent, category leading wind and shock isolation without need for fur. Features durable, grey 3D-Tex® material, Floating-Basket Suspension (patent pending) and microphone suspension webs with Rycote Lyre® Technology. Z-Locking basket design provides instant windshield attachment / detachment for lightning-fast microphone access. Overall length 470mm. Perfect for Sennheiser MKH 60, Schoeps Super-CMIT etc.
