Cardo Systems Introduces Wireless Bluetooth® Headset for Motorcycle Helmets with EXTRA Features

PITTSBURGH, PA - Cardo Systems, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of wireless Bluetooth devices for the consumer market, today announced it will begin shipping the SCALA-RIDER FM wireless communications hands-free Headset, an innovative Bluetooth headset that allows motorcyclists and other helmet wearers to use their cell phones and enjoy their favorite FM radio stations. The device fits virtually any motorcycle helmet and is fully weather protected.

“This innovative headset provides enjoyment and practical functionality,” explained Abraham Glezerman, Chairman and CEO of Cardo Systems. “Motorcyclists can have comfortable, secure, hands-free wireless communication, and enjoy their favorite music. As with all other versions of the SCALA-RIDER, this product too puts safety first: Automatic volume adjustment and voice controlled receipt of incoming calls allow users to keep their hands on the handlebars."

The SCALA-RIDER FM Headset is specially designed for motorcycle-type helmets and can be installed in minutes. Embedded sensors set the optimum volume at all times and automatically adjust the volume up or down depending on the riders’ speed.

Additional features include a speaker booster, automatic mute for incoming calls, and a wind-resistant noise canceling microphone that provides clear audio for communicating, as well as a quick-release mechanism for the headset that leaves virtually no traces on the helmet.

With the SCALA-RIDER FM Headset the rider can:

  • Receive, initiate or reject calls by voice control, keeping both hands on the handlebars;
  • Activate the convenient voice-dial feature;
  • Listen to FM radio – program up to six pre-set stations;
  • Recharge the headset in only three hours;
  • Enjoy up to 7 hours of continuous talk time – standby time is one week

The new multi-featured scala-rider FM Headset is available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty motorcycle shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems web site. Its MSRP is $ 179.99.
