Schuberth and Cardo announce cooperation

Schuberth GmbH, the German producer of high-end head protection and Cardo Systems Inc., the Pittsburgh based market leader in Bluetooth communication systems for motorcycle helmets (scala rider), announced the signing of a cooperation agreement, according to which Cardo will design and manufacture a unique communication and entertainment system for the Schuberth C3, C2 and Concept motorcycle flip-up helmets. The new and patented system which can be easily adapted to these helmets will be launched in 2009.

Besides connectivity with mobile phones, bike-to-bike intercom between up to 3 rider and wireless receipt of stereo music from compatible MP3 players, no further technical information about the system was provided. At this point also the name of the new system is still being kept confidential.

Schuberth’s executives described their new system not only technologically as cutting edge, but also as a radically new approach in retrofitting communication systems to motorcycle helmets, blurring the line between built-in headsets and after-market solutions. The new system will be offered in the first move for Schuberth flip-up helmets and can be installed within minutes by any end-user. Schuberth plans to present the system this year, possibly at the EICMA motorcycle trade show in Milan, Italy.

Marcel Lejeune, CEO of Schuberth GmbH remarked: "Our collaboration with Cardo is meant to equip the world’s finest motorcycle helmets with the best available communication and entertainment system. The new system represents the synthesis between our unrelenting pursuit of safety, intuitive ergonomics and cutting-edge technology. This product will meet an important customer demand for a smart and mature all-round solution to complement our premium helmets".

Dr. Abraham Glezerman, Chairman of Cardo Systems added: "Working with Schuberth gives us a welcome opportunity to provide a high-end solution to a sophisticated clientele that is used to very high standards. Everything we have learned in years of research, development and market requirements will be brought to bear in the Schuberth communication system."
