Pittsburg, PA (USA), 20 August 2012 - Cardo Systems, Inc., world’s market leader in Bluetooth® communication systems for motorcycle riders and cyclists, will participate in this year’s EUROBIKE (29 August - 1 September) with its innovative system- the cardo BK-1.

The cardo BK -1, the 1st Bluetooth communication system custom made for cyclists. During the Eurobike tradeshow Cardo Systems will present the very latest features to be introduced to the market in early 2013 and available to all cardo BK-1 current users via software upgrades.

The cardo BK-1 revolutionizes the cycling experience with its advanced communication innovations and entertainment features. Suitable for road cyclists, mountain bikers, triathletes and cycling fans, its unique Bluetooth intercom conferencing feature allows 3 cyclists to hold a full duplex conversation at a range of up to 500 meters. This feature is highly appreciated by cyclists as they can maintain speed, talk without having to raise their voices and easily warn each other of hazards ahead.

Cyclists using the cardo BK-1 can also enjoy connections to their mobile phone, smartphone, GPS, MP3 player and FM radio while riding, without compromising their personal safety. Flexible speakers "floating" over the ears allow cyclists to maintain full awareness of traffic or surrounding sounds. Voice Command technology provide a safe environment allowing cyclists to ride without removing their hands from the handlebars. Alternatively, the system can also be manually controlled by tapping on the user buttons. The system's easily adjustable microphone offers crystal clear audio and the volume automatically changes according to ambient noise.

The cardo BK-1 is lightweight, waterproof and dustproof (IP67), usable in all weather and road conditions and fits virtually all types of helmets. Albert Ashkenazy Cardo Systems VP Sales and Marketing summed it up by saying: "Following numerous positive feedbacks from professional cyclists, we have no doubt that the cardo BK-1 communication system answers the particular needs of cyclists around the world, whether on the road or cycling in the mountains".
