Canadian's Colin and Ryan Pyle use Cardo System’s Bike-to-Bike in China ride

Canadian Brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle use Cardo System’s Bike-to-Bike Communication During 18,000 Kilometer Journey Around China

PITTSBURGH, PA - Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for motorcycle helmet headsets, announced today its scala rider® G4TM PowerSet Bluetooth intercom headset was used extensively during the recent MKride around China to facilitate a safe journey for two motorcycle riders who are not only brothers, but riding buddies for a cause.

Brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle completed a motorcycle tour of China on October 17th, 2010 in Shanghai. The pair traversed 17,674 kilometers during the 65 day journey, becoming the first riders to circumnavigate the country in one journey. Their Middle Kingdom (MK) Ride raised funds and awareness for the Seva Foundation, a charitable organization that helps communities around the world with initiatives including clean water, improved healthcare and education.

The MKride team chose the scala rider G4 PowerSet because of Cardo Systems’ eight years of experience in the Bluetooth industry and for the scala rider G4 PowerSet’s reputation for being the world leader in Bluetooth intercom systems for motorcycles. The scala rider G4 features two headsets for bike to bike intercom communication up to ONE mile and allows safe hands-free conversations, so riding partners can quickly discuss road hazards or direction changes without using hand gestures or resorting to shouting. Both headsets also include VOX which enables users to make and receive hands-free cell phone calls and can pair with GPS devices so that a rider can hear turn by turn, in-helmet voice instructions. With 10 hours of rechargeable talk time and a range of up to one mile, the scala rider G4 is the perfect safety companion for lengthy journeys.

The brothers used the scala rider G4 PowerSet in a variety of conditions including high altitudes of more than 16,000 feet, extreme temperatures swings, and numerous hail and rainstorms proving to be a vital part of their gear that helped the riding team stay safe and alert to impending dangers.

“The scala absolutely enhanced our trip and allowed us to communicate and ride with four eyes instead of just two,” said Ryan Pyle, of MKride. “China has the most dangerous roads in the world, with statistically the highest automobile fatality rate. We safely navigated through horrendous traffic jams and other hazards because of our ability to communicate clearly and effectively with the G4.”

Not only does the scala rider G4 PowerSet keep avid motorcycle cruisers safe on their journeys, but also entertained with it extensive communication and music options. Each headset has an embedded radio with seek and scan features and also A2DP compatibility for wireless STEREO music that can be played from a compatible MP3 player or iPod. The headsets also feature AVRCP technology which enables a user to control their music device/GPS unit right from the headset, alleviating the need to manipulate the devices from pockets, jackets or any other areas that may cause distraction.

Cardo Systems congratulates Ryan and Colin on their achievement and was honored to support them in their epic journey around China and their charitable mission. Ryan and Colin Pyle are producing a documentary and a book about their experiences during their MKride. More information can be found at www.mkride.com.

The scala rider G4 PowerSet is available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty motorcycle shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems web site at www.cardosystems.com with a suggested retail price of $489.95 USD.
