Our passion is to make
your ride exceptional

— Side by side with you on the road since 2004 —

Back in 2003 …

We were one of a few companies creating Bluetooth headpieces for early cellphones. We called them Scala, and they were special because of our unique wind-suppressing technology. With Scala, users' voice came across crystal-clear and noise-free.


Then, one day, riding on a motorcycle to the office, lightning struck!
What will happen if we take the same Bluetooth and wind-suppressing technology, wrap it inside a sturdy waterproof shell and attach it to a helmet? Now riders like us could connect to their music, their phone, and most of all - to each other.


The challenge

We believed - we still do - that riding a motorcycle shouldn’t mean we can’t enjoy the company of our friends. So, we put our best man to the challenge (really our best man, he’s still with us, and he's our oldest employee), and a year later we launched the world’s first motorcycle Bluetooth headset.
It was a blast. A true marvel of innovation, though we could possibly have been more innovative in its choice of a name - Scala Rider.

The Scala Rider legend is born

Seeing that we were on to something, we decided to stop making earpieces for phones and focus on making the lives of our fellow riders better. We’ve been committed to this ever since.
