Designed to block 80% of wind noise while riding your bike. Unlike ear plugs and headphones, Wind-Blox only blocks the wind noise, allowing you to hear approaching traffic, nature and fellow cyclists. Black. Sold as a pair. Two sizes:
I tried these and noticed a difference right away. As the instructions mention, the noise reduction is not appreciated until one takes the wind blox off. My husband also tried them, and he liked them so much he had me order some for him. Wearing sunglasses with these on the helmet straps makes for a snug fit, and could be uncomfortable after a long ride, but I am happy with them.
Agreed--a modest improvement.

They cut some noise, though 80% is wildly optimistic. They were a bit too long, even though I ordered the smaller size. I like them enough, however, that I'll continue to wear them, though I might shorten them a bit to fit my smaller face.
Meh (so far)

Maybe my head's shaped funny, but the only way I can hear the sounds of 80-ish% wind noise reduction is by manually pulling my chin strap down. But I like two hands on my bars. Alternatively, I could cinch my helmet straps so tight that I'd worry about breathing or brain circulation. Maybe I should trim a bit off the XL sized product I bought. Still experimenting. A user manual, even a tiny one, might have been helpful.

These have a better appearance than the fuzzy type and do reduce the wind noise, particularly in stiff headwinds. However, for my medium sized Specialized helmet they were a bit too long to fit well and there is no adjustment to that part of the strap. Also, it was not possible to readily put on Oakley style glasses over the set up. Thus, the glasses needed to go on first and beneath the cinch down mechanism. Any ride over 40 miles resulted in discomfort by the squeeze on the glass stems.
some relief, not a perfect solution

The XL size fills the entire gap between my strap and cheek, from my helmet to my chin. They block airflow and reduce some noise. The reduction is more than I get with just a fleece hat, but nothing compared to ear plugs. "Designed to block 80% of wind noise" seems like a blow-hard claim... Most of the time, I don't really notice the Wind-Blox pressing against my cheeks, but I've only worn them in cold weather and mostly with a hat. They are very nicely made. They are better than nothing, but not the difference I was hoping for.
Not for me

I purchased these after using the "cat-ears" classics for the past year. My experience with the "cat-ears" are that they work very well at blocking wind noise, are comfortable, work well in all conditions. However, they look funny, like having ear muffs or speakers on your ears, to every one looking at you. I tried these "wind-blow pro" because they are less noticeable. However, what I have found is that they are a little too long and bump up at the helmet when attached to the helmet strap which can cause a bit of irritation. As for the noise dampening they do not provide the same level of noise reduction found in the "cat-ears," but they do reduce noise as compared to riding without. I might have been better if they had them in sizes or maybe I will cut mine down by an inch and see how that works.
