scala rider G9x Testimonialmore details…

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.

Ride safe

"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...."

"Inside Maria’s helmet were earphones and a microphone that were part of a new Bluetooth device called a cardo BK-1 that made talking to Maria from the follow vehicle as easy as if she was sitting in the seat next to us.  Back on the road, Carly began reading from the torrent of love and support flowing through Facebook...."

"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"

Thank you for you and your companies help in our tour. As you may have seen we made it to Istanbul as planned on the 1st July covering 4,624km and so far raising £3400 for our charity Cancer Research UK. After travelling all that way we can also say that the cardo BK-1 device worked absolutely perfectly the whole way...

This is the best thing I have ever owned. The convenience of bluetooth for both listening and communications. Great for group bike rides where two guides are needed to keep the group together and communicating to the front what is happening in the rear of the ride. Great on both road and mountain bike rides. The access of a communicator like the cardo BK-1 is essential on all rides but most of all for long distance rides. Thank you very much.

Hello Cardo! I finally had a chance to test out the BK-1 Duo I won back around Valentines Day. WOW! I will admit I honestly had low expectations on the sound quality between 2 riders communicating over Bluetooth. MAN WAS I WRONG!! These ROCK!! We were out with a group of 12 Mountain Bikers. I had headset 1 and my girlfriend had headset 2. at first the volume seemed a little low until we got moving then the noise cancellation kicked in and i could hear her as if she were right next to me.

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.
