Two Bike-to-Bike communication systems for motorcycle riders – Recommended by SHOEI

For over half a century SHOEI has been crafting premium helmets and its products have achieved iconic status among riders world-wide. The cardo SHO-1 was custom-designed to offer SHOEI enthusiasts a communication system that meets the highest standards.

The cardo SHO-1 DUO offers you 2 pre-paired advanced motorcycle communication systems custom-made for your SHOEI helmets!

Just like your trusted SHOEI helmet, the new cardo SHO-1 is an extraordinary piece of equipment. With its unique and patented modular architecture, the SHO-1 integrates seamlessly with the SHOEI helmet design(1). On the inside, the SHO-1 houses the most advanced communication technology, including an unmatched plethora of features and functions. On the outside, it offers a streamlined and discreet appearance, including a replaceable battery for those extra-long-riding tours.

SHOEI riders will appreciate the voice-controlled operation of the cardo SHO-1. Not only will their hands remain on the handlebar for extra safety, but using the system also means natural and intuitive operation of this extremely feature-rich device. Among others, the cardo SHO-1 offers voice controlled intercom calls with up to 8 additional riders or 4-Way intercom conferencing within a 1.6 km(2) range.

And there is more: Riders can connect two mobile phones simultaneously and talk hands-free. Streaming stereo music from any Bluetooth® enabled smartphone or MP3 player is a breeze and so is the ability to receive in-the-ear navigation instructions from your GPS. With the built-in FM radio, you can also stay up-to-date with the latest traffic and weather reports from local radio stations.

The unique Cardo Community® web platform allows riders to invite fellow bikers for a ride, plan and join tours, and personalize the device settings to get the most out of your riding experience. When on the road, you can use Cardo’s exclusive SmartSet Android app (available free via Google Play(3)) to easily modify your SHO-1 settings from any Bluetooth® enabled Android device.

Lastly, the cardo SHO-1’s upgradable software(4) will ensure you remain at the forefront of technology.
