The Cyclone Windshield Small is a next generation windshield designed for small diaphragm condenser and short shotgun mics. This is the smallest windshield in the cyclone range
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.
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.

Magnetic Z-Locking System
Magnetic Z-Locking System that can be opened and closed in the blink of an eye - using just one hand.
Cyclone takes the Lyre microphone suspension and incorporates it in a Floating Basket Suspension.
