scala rider G9x Testimonialmore details…

Skiers have the same communication issues as bikers. You have that wonderful smartphone, but it's buried under layers of clothing in a warm inner pocket. You are wearing big gloves or mitts as well. How do you listen to music, make or receive a phone call? I brainstormed this and ended up buying a Scala Rider. Although mine is an older version, the new QZ is perfect. When you purchase your ski helmet, try to buy one that is designed to add headphones to the ear area. Many of the brands out there say they are 'Skull Candy' compatible. I bought a helmet from 'Red' and installed my Scala Rider. Attached is a photo of my setup.

Thought I'd take a minute to tell you about my experience with the Scala Rider comm system.  I met up with my life long friend this past weekend to ride and spend time together.  To make this weekend even more fun, Doug purchased the Cardo Powerset which consists of two units.  We spent the evening installing them and going through the learning curve so that we could use them the next day, which we did, and all I can say is 'amazing'.  If you are like me, your bike IS you main form of transportation, these are a must have.  The sound quality is not to be believed.  Even with shields open at 90mph, the only thing you hear is your buddy's voice - loud and clear and without any other noise - no road, no engine and no wind sound at all.  Long story short, we spent the weekend riding together and talking to one another as if we were home sitting at the table together.  It enhanced that whole riding experience 10 fold.

I don't have the time at the moment to go into all the details (I will elaborate later) but the features I have used thus far are as follows:

Voice commands - almost everything can be done hands free

Intercomm - simple and easy to use

Smart phone pairing - easy to pair and use.  I can answer and make calls easily.  The units have a priority list that can be configured which means I can listen to music from my phone, get an incoming call that automatically pauses the music, finish the call and automatically resume the music.  Same with using the voice navigation on my android phone.  Fantastic.

FM radio - you can have up to 6 presets, or, if touring, use the automatic 'find' feature that will temporarily store the first 6 stations the unit finds, or, you can grab the next 6 stations by repeating the process.

Automatic gain control - all features have separate volume levels and all levels are controlled by AGC, which means the faster I go, the louder the noise, the higher the volume is automatically increased,  and vice versa when slowing down.

Intercomm to phone - I can call a buddy using the intercomm and if he is not in range, will automatically call him using the phone.

Phone call sound quality - perfect.  Flawless.

Battery life - we spent a solid 14 hours with the units on and had power left at the end of the day.

Flexibility - the units come with a variety of installation options including different mic and speaker configurations as well as mounting accessories.  

In short, I cannot say enough about the quality of the units.  If you are interested in buying a comm system for yourself, I would recommend looking into the Scala Rider.

"Using the scala rider G9x has changed the world of wingsuit BASE. Communicating with other fliers while flying as a flock down the Jungfrau is a memory I will never forget.  It’s amazing to be able to talk with another wingsuiters while flying down a beautiful mountain at 160 kph.  This is a huge innovation in the sport of wingsuit flying, and a key tool when making long technical flights as a flock. This summer I will be using the scala rider G9x to communicate with my team while I attempt to make a world speed record somewhere in the high mountains!"

"The Cardo scala rider G9 has saved a marriage! Although not specifically designed for use on ATVs, I purchased a set to help give my wife safety instruction and trail directions while she operated her own machine some distance away. Within the first few minutes, she was very grateful for the ability to communicate with me as I warned her of trail debris, large rocks, oncoming vehicles on the trail, etc...." (as posted on the scala rider Facebook page)

"I had a chance to use the scala rider G9 from Alaska to Argentina, with  great performance. Battery life is exceptional and kept me and my buddies constantly communicated and safe while traveling abroad. Rain, desert, altitude and dust were no problem with the scala's' and would definitely recommend it to friends and clients"


scala rider TeamSet Pro Testimonial more details…

I am very pleased with the performance of my Cardo scala rider TeamSet Pro headset. I can safely answer calls (hands-free) on long trips, which is huge for me; and the clarity is awesome. I tried a competitor's model, and paid big bucks for it, but never achieved a level of comfort using it, so my hat is off to the Cardo Systems, and thanks for making my long distance riding aboard my BMW R1200RT much more enjoyable.


scala rider Q2 MultiSet Pro Testimonial more details…

Thank you for the scala rider. It has helped so much over the past week. We managed to fix it to the helmets and it was very comfortable. We could ski down the mountain without having to shout at the tops of our voices all the way down. My skiing really improved thanks to it and I managed to go down a red run for the first time. I really appreciate your help. Best wishes, James. (James is 11 years old and registered blind)

While on a cross country trip from PA and traveling at approximately 70 mph on my 650 V-Strom last summer in Wyoming, my son said over the Q-2 Scala rider  "Dad, watch out”! an antelope had jumped the fence on my right as I was looking to my left; had I not hit the breaks with this warning from my son, I would have hit the antelope dead on. The Q2 Scala rider communicators saved me from something really bad happening; Regardless, these devices proved their weight in gold and possibly save my life.

My Dad and I recently started riding together and last year we took a trip a crossed the country. While on this trip, the owner of the Suzuki dealership that we got our bikes from let us borrow his Scala Rider Q2s, and they really helped to make the trip a lot better. To be able to communicate while riding helped us to see things that the other would have missed. 


scala rider G9 PowerSet Testimonial more details…

I purchased the Cardo Scala Rider G9 PowerSet approx. a year ago and have loved them since day one. My wife and I both ride...she rides a Harley Softail Deluxe and I ride a Harley Road Glide. Whether we use them for bike to bike communication or rider to passenger on the rare occasion that we ride two up, it works flawlessly. I particularly like the fact that we can communicate bike to bike over such a long distance, especially if we get separated in traffic, I can still talk to her and keep track of where she is.
