The S-Series Kit retains all the flexibility, balance and professional performance that you can expect from a Rycote system, only simplified for ease of use.
Lightweight with a minimum of parts and tough enough to withstand the rigours of ENG, the S-Series is ready to use straight out of the box.
This robust kit incorporates the patented Lyre suspension and integral fur windshield “Pods” that can be removed easily and quickly, to access the microphone. Additional pods may be purchased to suit longer or shorter microphones, adding a valuable versatility to this kit.
Suspension, Windshield and Cable
As with our modular suspension, the S-Series suspension can be used on its own, without wind protection. Axial mics are suspended using the patented Lyre webs, which provide complete isolation against handling and cable-borne noises.
These Lyres are unaffected by temperature and virtually unbreakable as they do not use elastic or rubber components which are prone to wear and tear.
To ensure perfect balance and fit these snap-in Lyres have six locations on the suspension bar and pinch-release fittings for quick and easy repositioning, making it simple to arrange one or several mics in a hurry.
The windshield element of the kit uses pairs of “Pods” which twist-lock to the chassis ring, allowing fast access to the microphone. Each “Pod” has an integral acoustic fur covering giving excellent wind-noise suppression.
Every S-Series comes supplied with a high quality microphone cable, fitted with Neutrik gold 3-pin XLR connectors. Twin cable clamps are also integrated into the suspension, for neat storage.

What size do I need?
Finding the correct Windshield Kit will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone.
Because the whole microphone is encased in the windshield Pods the total length of the microphone including the XLR cable must be accounted for, this means adding 50mm to the length of the mic.
For a windshield to work effectively the microphone should be mounted centrally within the windshield, therefore the microphone + XLR length should approximately equal the total length of the kit. The body length of our S-Series kit is the length of both Pods when added together.
