Unlike ear plugs and headphones, Wind-Blox only block the wind noise, allowing you to hear approaching traffic, nature and fellow cyclists. Decibel meter tests show absolutely no discernible reduction in desired sounds--while significantly reducing wind noise.
They are engineered of modern sports fabric and designed to look hi-tech. Wind-Blox are sportswear.
The quick bi-directional Velcro closure takes seconds to mount to either side of your helmet. You don't have to disassemble your helmet straps to install. They are durable, easy wash and dry, they don't come unglued, fray or matt.
In addition, they can reduce cold wind-induced ear aches, are excellent for hearing aid wearers, have US-based support, and include reflective lettering to increase night visibility.
Wow! No, really, Wow!! I took them off for a ride to see whether I was imagining the improvement. I then put them back on my road helmet and have kept them there ever sense. They work.
"...the simple comfort of not having wind roaring in my ears all the time was the best feature of this product by far." "Would we recommend the Wind-Blox... YES"
I felt as if I were able to discern cars approaching sooner and to hear some of the other city sounds that get drowned out by the wind.
