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.
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. An optional Windjammer allows for recording in extreme “weather warning” conditions.
Inside the Cyclone, Rycote uses a system similar to the Lyre® microphone suspension system 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.
