Rycote 089101 Cyclone Windshield Kit

The Rycote Cyclone introduces a unique “multi-suspension” design that provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, and windshield basket self-noise. In addition to the outstanding shock protection provided by the patented Rycote Lyre Suspension Webs, shock performance is further enhanced by the new Rycote FloatingBasket Suspension with Lyre® Technology (patent pending). This basket suspension provides a unique isolation barrier between the windshield basket and suspension that inhibits noise and vibration induced by the windshield itself from being mechanically transmitted to the primary suspension.


The windshield basket design uses a magnetic Z-Locking System that can be opened and closed using just one hand. Reassembly allows the windshield sides to snap into perfect alignment. Increased transparency is achieved due to the cone-like shape, which vastly reduces reflective parallel surfaces and “room effect”. With the same overall mass, the unique, design shifts the overall bulk to the basket front for superior wind-noise reduction exceeding modular-style windshield / windjammer combined performance. In addition to the shape and structure of the Cyclone, 3D-Tex® covers the windshield exterior. This durable material combines excellent acoustic transparency with superb attenuation of wind noise.


  • Wind Attenuation 50 dB (without Windjammer) >60 dB (with Windjammer)
  • Measured total power - 10Hz - 20kHz, no weighting, under real wind conditions
  • Frequency Response Substantially flat ( 0db, -3dB) Measured differential twin microphone technique, 10Hz - 20kHz
  • Handling Isolation Typically >10dB Dependent on microphone type and LF band shaping
  • Temperature Range Safe operating range: Min. -20°C (-5°F) Max. 38°C (100°F)
