Rycote have announced the launch of two brand new products offering exceptional wind shielding performance at NAB 2014.


The Super-Softie significantly enhances the performance achieved by the existing Softie windshield, through an innovative new aerodynamic shape, and brand new surface material – 3D-Tex, combining to achieve excellent acoustic transparency with superb attenuation of wind noise.

Key features are:

• 3D-Tex & the novel shape and give greatly improved wind noise reduction compared to conventional “soft” windshields.
• A true cavity design, with superb performance at extreme low frequencies
• A rough-service windshield, robust enough for the most challenging ENG situations
• Maintains excellent acoustic transparency in almost all situations,
• High immunity to rain-soaking


The Super-Shield is the latest version of Rycote’s rigid basket windshield, replacing the S Series range, and sitting alongside the flagship modular windshield product.

Key features are:

• A lightweight basket windshield system with a minimum number of parts, that is simple to use
• Configurable for aerodynamic and centre-of-mass balance
• Excellent wind noise reduction and lyre-standard isolation from handling noise
• Removable fur Windjammer to add the highest levels of wind noise suppression
