Catlike is the company name, if i remember correctly they don't have an American distributor

i've seen them on a few people here in the US, but i dont know where they got them from.
They have them at my LBS. (Canada)

Yeah, I think I read somewhere in the Roadie forum that they're sold in Canada, but I think they're not sold in the US 'cause of some crash approval issue or something? not totally sure - I'd have to dig the old thread up again

USA standards are very high specially with helmets... probably we wont see ever that helmet in here but always we can buy it in canada? :P
Ops the company is spanish, yup! we wont see the helment in the US for sure! Im not saying spanish products are bad ok? but knowing them and knowing US standards about helmet crash testing, im quite sure those helmets wont pass the testing. The other reason is that Spain have sort of "love and hate" relationship with the US so that will make even more distant the chance to see those products in here...
Cool helmets anyways :)

USA Cycling has accepted the European standard for helmets so Catlikes are legal for racing in the states (because they meet European standards).
Should mean that at some point Catlike helmets become more available stateside.
