Cardo Introduces All-New scala rider® Q1 and Q3 Bluetooth® Communication Systems for Motorcycle Helmets
(Pittsburgh, PA – April 22, 2013) – Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth
communications for motorcycle helmets, has announced all-new additions to its scala rider product line:
the rider-to-passenger Q1 and the bike-to-bike Q3 product families.
The new scala rider Q1 and scala rider Q3 feature a sleek new design with outstanding ergonomics and
new features and functions. As another industry "first", both products have the unique Music Sharing™
technology allowing riders and their passengers to share the same music while riding from any A2DPenabled
smartphone or MP3 player. The Q1 and the Q3 packages include a hybrid and a wire
microphone as well as replaceable speakers for riders who prefer their own personal headphones.
The scala rider Q1 and the scala rider Q3 also include A2DP Bluetooth connectivity, a built-in FM radio
with RDS, voice activation, a fully waterproof/dustproof casing and Cardo's unique Click-to-Link® pairing.
The Q1 TeamSet includes two factory-paired units in the retail box and is ideal for communication
between rider and passenger. The Q3 MultiSet adds increased range for bike-to-bike intercom
communication up to 1km, as well as intercom toggling between up to 4 riders.
“Scala rider is the bestselling Bluetooth helmet communication system in the world, with almost 2
million units having been sold,” said Cardo CEO Abraham Glezerman. “With its new streamlined design,
even more useful features and intuitive operability, we’re confident the new Q1 and Q3 systems will
continue that trend.”

€129.95, Q1 TeamSet (double pack) for €239.95, Q3 (single unit) for €199.95 and the Q3 MultiSet
