Rycote Cyclone Windshield Large (089101)

The Rycote Cyclone Windshield is the result of more than a decade of continuous development. The Rycote 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 Rycote's 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.

*Does not include microphone stand or shotgun microphone pictured.

Rycote Cyclone Windshield Features:

  • Radical new design and shape delivers a new pinnacle in audio transparency, wind noise and handling noise isolation.
  • Lightweight, durable construction, designed with materials to withstand extreme field conditions.
  • Featuring 3D-Tex® delivering massive wind noise reduction without needing additional fur coverings.
  • Basket Z-Locking design, with magnetic locking, provides instant, one-hand microphone access with automatic, self-aligning basket reassembly.
  • Swivel latches provide additional basket security for extreme environments and run-and-gun applications
  • Increased acoustic transparency, and no parallel surfaces to minimise room-tones, provides a clean frequency response.
  • All-new, patented Floating-Basket Suspension with Lyre technology for reduction of windshield basket handling noise.
  • Industry-leading Lyre Microphone Suspension with Universal Lyre webs (19-25mm) includes spares.
  • Supplied with ultra-soft, flexible Mogami cable, fitted with gold pin Neutrik XX-series XLR connectors.
  • Output male XLR locked in angled position on lightweight boom adaptor, allowing internal or external pole cables and plug-on 
  • transmitters to be attached securely.
  • Compatible with optional Cyclone Windjammer for extreme wind isolation performance.
