Rycote Cyclone

Die neue Rycote Cyclone Windschutz Familie.

Die neue Cyclone Familie - mit neuen, kleineren und leichteren Modellen.

Die Evolution geht weiter

Introducing the all-new Cyclone product range, featuring next-generation wind and handling noise isolation for discerning audio professionals. All Cyclone models are now covered in our new, more advanced 3D-Tex® for even better performance. 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.

Drei Grössen. Unendliche Möglichkeiten.

Cyclone Small

Cyclone Small delivers outstanding performance for small diaphragm condenser and short shotgun microphones alike. The detachable Offset Link bracket, included with Cyclone Small models, provides mic-axis articulation for ideal microphone placement.

Der Cyclone Small ist in 3 Varianten erhältlich:

Cyclone Medium

With our new, premium, short XLR, the Cyclone Medium fits a wide range of microphone sizes.

This Cyclone family member accommodates not only short shotgun microphones, but also many popular shotgun microphones too— all in a compact chassis for maximum wind and handling performance with minimal weight.

Cyclone Large

Originally introduced in 2014, the Cyclone Large has been updated with our durable, grey 3D-Tex material.

Used with many shotgun microphones, the latest Cyclone Large maintains industry-leading performance with a neutral appearance.

New, more advanced 3D-Tex® for even better performance.

All Cyclone models feature our new, grey 3D-Tex® material. This advanced variation of our durable material provides a neutral appearance while performing even better than the original, providing 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 consistent performance which location audio professionals can depend upon.

Premium performance for a wide range of microphones.

The new Cyclone Small and Medium models accommodate a range of microphone sizes, from compact condenser to shotgun, providing premium performance to a much wider range of microphones in your arsenal.

Premium short XLR.

The all new Rycote premium short XLR available with Cyclone Small and Medium is not only lightweight, it makes these models perfect for use with longer microphones – often reducing the overall size and weight of the Cyclone model required. In other words, Cyclone Medium, with its durable, lightweight chassis, houses many popular shotgun microphones!

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.

3D Tex® Material

3D-Tex® material provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance.

Magnetic Z-Locking System

Magnetic Z-Locking System that can be opened and closed in the blink of an eye – using just one hand.


Multi Suspension

Cyclone takes the Lyre® microphone suspension and incorporates it in a Floating Basket Suspension.

Taking microphone shock-isolation a step further.

Rycote uses its industry-leading Lyre® microphone suspension to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise, but they have taken shock and handling isolation within the Cyclone design to a new level with the exclusive, Floating Basket Suspension* (*patent pending).

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.

The Cyclone takes the Lyre principle and incorporates it into the Floating Basket Suspension. This innovative technique provides vibration isolation between basket and pole, thus attenuating handling noise at source. Each Cyclone size is equipped with a unique basket suspension designed to maximize vibration isolation based upon the combined weight of the basket and specified microphones.

From microphone windshield to suspension in the blink of an eye.

Imagine a windshield that can be removed from or attached to the suspension in an instant using just one hand – allowing audio professionals to capture the best possible audio at any moment – in any environment. This is the unique benefit of Rycote’s Z-Locking System. Reassembly is automatic, and components magnetically snap into perfect alignment.

Superb acoustic transparency

The Windshield combines superb acoustic transparency with an equal effectiveness in protecting against wind noise.

Open shell structure

Open shell structure, curved contours and no straight or parallel surfaces.

Reduced handling noise

Innovative technique provides vibration isolation between basket and pole.

Consistent performance with low maintenance.

Location sound mixers require equipment that will not only withstand extreme conditions, but also maintain consistent performance. Maintenance is often a time-consuming, yet necessary evil.

3D-Tex was developed for both outstanding performance and ease of maintenance. Dust it off after mild use or rinse and air dry after heavy use to maintain outstanding, transparent and consistent performance for years of faithful use.
