Bell Helmets, an industry leader in helmet technology and innovation, and Cardo Systems, Inc., the global market leader in Bluetooth communications for motorcycle, bicycle and snowmobile riders, today announced an alignment to create an adaptor compatible with Cardo’s line of communication and entertainment systems and Bell helmets. The adaptor will fit into the recess of the Bell Mag-9, previous models and 2015 model, plus the newly redesigned 2015 Qualifier DLX.

The Bell adapter fits seamlessly into the helmet and is designed for quick attachment of the highly popular scala rider devices for bike-to-bike intercom, streaming music from a smartphone and much more. With an increasing demand from riders to incorporate communication devices in helmets, Bell Helmets and Cardo Systems, Inc., designed a convenient adaptor in order to allow users to choose their preferred scala rider model among the company’s offerings.

“In an increasingly mobile world, we wanted to offer our customers both the best in class head protection and in communication systems”, said Chris Sacket, Vice President Bell Helmets. “We’re proud to offer riders helmets that allow them high quality communications with riding partners while staying seamlessly connected with entertainment from their smartphone or the radio whether they’re touring or commuting.”

A major upgrade from the previous model, the 2015 Qualifier DLX will see enhanced features while still holding an affordable price point. Along with the slide in the injection mold for the communication port, the helmet has been redesigned with an upgraded interior to offer riders more comfort. Plus, the helmet will come standard with the Bell Transition SOLFX Photochromic shield, which automatically adapts to light conditions, darkening when exposed to sunlight and clearing in low light settings.

“Having pioneered Bluetooth communication for riders over a decade ago, we have learned a lot about user preferences and the importance of individual choices. With the new adapter, Bell enthusiast will be able to combine their favorite helmet with a scala rider device that fits their needs”, said Jamie Cheek, Cardo’s Director of Sales. “The Bell adapter is a remarkably straightforward solution that merges the advantages of two fine brands in the motorcycle accessory industry for the benefit of the user”

Cardo System, Inc., scala rider products for bike-to-bike intercom allow users to communicate via intercom with fellow riders at great distances, conduct mobile phone calls, listen to the built-in FM radio, receive streaming stereo music from their smartphones, get directions from their GPS devices and control most of these features in a safe manner by voice command.

The adaptor will be available at select retailers and online at, the Cardo System, Inc. for $59.95. For more on the adaptor please visit or
