Cardo introduces the Cardo scala rider G9

Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for motorcycle helmets, today announced the launch of the Cardo scala rider G9, the most advanced motorcycle helmet communication system. The Cardo scala rider G9 takes wireless, bike-to-bike intercom communication to a whole new level, allowing users to toggle back and forth to converse with up to eight riders at a range of up to one mile, talk to as many as two friends simultaneously via an intercom system, and access a variety of other conversation and entertainment features via voice or touch command.

Cardo Systems, industry pioneer and maker of the world’s most popular motorcycle communications products, is poised to transform the industry yet again with the Cardo scala rider G9, which features unprecedented intercom connection capabilities, wireless access to mobile phone, GPS and MP3 music streaming functions, and much more in a sleek, compact headset that installs in minutes. The Intercom Conference Mode allows full duplex conversations with fellow riders up to a mile apart, enabling four-way conversations between two drivers and two passengers, three-way conversations between three separate riders and two-way rider-to-rider or rider-to-passenger conversations.

The new “One+8” Intercom Toggling Mode enables riders to call up fellow G9 riders by voice tag and to toggle back and forth between up to eight other users riding together. Click-to-Link, another unique Cardo Intercom feature, empowers users to make spontaneous connections to any scala rider G9 or G4 user within range. “Flash Pairing” allows users to establish a connection in seconds by bumping two scala rider G9 units together.

The scala rider G9,  compatible with Bluetooth phones, including the  iPhone-allows riders to stream MP3 music in stereo wirelessly via A2DP (cable connection included for older MP3 players), initiate and receive phone calls, GPS instructions, and connectivity status announcements, or listen to the built-in FM radio. Many functions can be controlled by voice command for safe, hands-free operation (e.g., "music on," or call "Bill Smith"). An incredibly smart priority management system allows riders to automatically disconnect from the intercom or music to receive incoming phone calls or in-ear GPS instructions.

Built to last and certified to meet exacting IP67 dustproof and waterproof standards, the rugged scala rider G9 has a unique social side with the Cardo Community web platform, which gives users an online venue to name tag their G9 unit, invite friends for a ride, plan tours, meet up with fellow riders, and customize the scala rider G9 to enhance social networking. The scala rider G9 is upgradable to ensure that users can take full advantage of all the latest technical features, which include Group Signal, that a rider can initiate to alert others on the ride and Hot-Dial calling.

“The scala rider G9 gives next-generation motorcycle communication system capabilities to today’s riders,” said Cardo's CEO Abraham Glezerman. “As a communications technology pioneer, Cardo Systems leverages a decade of experience and road-testing to deliver groundbreaking new capabilities that enhance the rider experience. From the simplified bump pairing to the improved speakers and ability to control initiation of music and talk by voice, among many other features, the scala rider G9 sets the new standard again to bring the best rider experience to motorcyclists.”

The scala rider G9 provides users with up to 12 hours of talk time with a standby time of seven days. The unit charges in three hours and features advanced Digital Signal Processing. The scala rider G9 is compatible with the entire scala rider line (subject to certain limitations).

The scala rider G9 is now available at select distributors, retail outlets, and specialty shops. For more information, please visit www.cardosystems.com.
