Cardo Systems Launches Scala Rider G4

Motorcycle Communications

Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for motorcycle helmet headsets, launched the brand new scala rider G4 PowerSet, an intercom communication system featuring two factory-paired units of the most feature-rich bike-to-bike Bluetooth headsets on the market.

The system contains two scala rider G4 headsets, for bike to bike intercom communication up to one mile* -creating a new industry standard. With the addition of a third paired G4 unit, three separate bikers can talk to each other as well. Two scala rider G4 PowerSet systems, four headsets in total, can be used together in full duplex intercom communication between two couples on two bikes traveling within a distance of up to one mile between each other.

Right out of the box, bikers can start communicating using the paired devices, creating a safe, convenient and enjoyable communication experience. In addition to intercom communication, Each G4 can connect with virtually any portable Bluetooth device including mobile phones, MP3 players and compatible GPS units (for in-helmet voice instructions).

It can also connect with non-Bluetooth MP3 players and GPS units via its embedded jack, and the entire line of scala rider headsets.** Both can transmit STEREO music from any MP3 player with A2DP capability. Incoming intercom messages and mobile phone calls automatically override MP3 music. Each G4 headset can be actively connected to one Bluetooth device and two other scala rider headsets at one time.

"The brand new scala rider G4 PowerSet increases the range that motorcyclists can enjoy speaking with each other and also extends the number of bikers who can speak on intercom at once with full duplex," said Abraham Glezerman, CEO of Cardo Systems, Inc. "The pair of headsets included in this package is packed with features that our customers have requested."

Each scala rider G4 comes equipped with a built-in FM radio with RDS, empowering riders with the ability to scan and seek stations and to save favorites utilizing the six-station channel memory. Voice-recognition (for answering, dialing or rejecting calls), multilingual spoken status announcements (to report incoming and outgoing connections) and AGC technology for automatic volume adjustments (based on ambient noise and driving speed) all contribute to completely hands-free communication and enjoyment.

Working with virtually all motorcycle helmets, the scala rider G4 PowerSet is available with noise-canceling microphones for the highest communication quality. The devices’ rechargeable li-polymer batteries allow for up to 10 hours of talk-time and 7-days standby time.

The new scala rider G4 PowerSet is now available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty motorcycle shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems website with a suggested retail price of $489.95.
