About Cat-Ears / AirStreamz
As avid cyclists, we found the frequent and sometimes constant drone of wind noise annoying and potentially dangerous. Wind noise masks surrounding sounds and at moderate speeds can exceed 85 decibels. Longer-term exposure to excessive wind noise can impact hearing. As a result, we started investigating solutions to reduce wind noise. After considerable 'trial and error' testing, we introduced the first generation of Cat-Ears products in 2012.
About the Cat-Ears name...
Cats are known for excellent hearing.
Even under the windiest of conditions.
"Nature is the source of all knowledge. She has her own logic, her own laws, she has no effect without cause nor invention without necessity."

Born in Boulder
Cat-Ears products were initially manufactured in our home in Boulder, Colorado. To meet demand, we expanded to a 1,250 sq. ft. facility during 2015. After six years in the Boulder area, we relocated to beautiful western Colorado. We want to thank the Boulder business community for the entrepreneurial ethos that made Cat-Ears possible.
To accommodate growth, we migrated most of the manufacturing to New Jersey during 2018.
