Catlike’s MPS 3D retention system is bafﬂing. The cradle isn’t fully ﬁxed to the lid but instead slides up and down the straps at the back of your head.
This cuts out bulk and offers inﬁnite opportunities to reﬁne the ﬁt, but also makes repeated adjustment extremely tricky indeed. It shifted every single time we removed it and had to be reset every time we tried to put it back on again.
It’s a good thing it’s a snug, comfortable lid because once we left the house for a ride we tried our damndest to avoid taking it off again before we got home.
Styling is so cute but it’s a shame that there’s no real venting at the sides, and the rattly peak needed reﬁxing every other ride.
