Cardo Scala Rider G4 motorcycle intercom headset
Description and specifications
When you think about bluetooth headsets you don’t necessarily make association with bikers, as the harsh environment from audio standpoint is not suited for any kind of communications. Well, you would be wrong, as Cardo-Rider is one of the bluetooth headsets manufacturers specialized in producing accessories for bikers.
Scala Rider G4 is their latest product, a helmet mounted (with glue-on or clamp mechanism plus in helmet speakers) headset that offers communications between two passengers on the same bike plus two others on a different motorcycle or between three different bikers. All communications are full duplex. And the good news doesn’t stop here: Scala Rider G4 can communicate efficiently on distances up to 1 mile. If you’re the lonely rider type of guy don’t worry, as the headset supports Bluetooth A2DP stereo streaming so you can listen to your own tunes stored on a cell phone or MP3 player.
If you’re getting bored you can call someone and talk, all without taking your hands off the bike. Scala Rider G4 can also be paired with a GPS receiver so you’ll hear indications directly in your helmet. All those features are possible thanks to the overwhelming number of technologies incorporated by Cardo-Rider: AGC for automatic volume adjustment that takes into consideration the speed you’re driving and environmental noise, PLC is the one that assures optimal sound quality in dense urban areas(from radio waves point of view) and VOX for hands free intercom and voice call communications. For you’re pleasure Cardo also included an FM radio with quick search and 6 channel memory, also voice activated.
For this kind of high end specs expect a high price tag, at around 250$, but don’t be sad, as for your passenger you only need a compatible Cardo Rider headset, not the Scala Rider G4. The conclusion is simple: get the Scala Rider G4 if you’re a mix of riding pleasure and communications freak. We’ll guarantee you that those long trips won’t ever be boring again.
