It sure seems like most of the wireless communications device technology we see on the market is targeted to the user behind the wheel. But what about the guys behind the handlebars? I’m talking Easy Rider, not Tour de France.
When it comes to mixing communication with locomotion, motorcyclists most often have to employ the Turn and Yell method of communication. Did someone say Bluetooth?
Cardo Systems has nestled into a nice niche with their line of wireless communications devices for the biker set. Their latest creation, the Scala Rider® Q2™ MultiSet, brings multi-function wireless Bluetooth communications to the two-wheel market. Imagine CHiPs meets Knight Rider, only with less leather and more gizmo.
If you like to stay in touch without that pesky roadrash, keep reading. With these twin talkers you can keep both of your hands planted firmly on grips as you chat it up with your passenger from over 1600 feet away or dig into your iPod with the built-in mp3 jack.
Yeah, you get two ready-to-use hands-free communications headsets in the kit, but these aren’t one trick ponies. Both headsets employ Cardo’s Multi-Device Connection (MDC) technology, which means you can communicate with several Bluetooth sources at the same time, including your GPS and mobile phone. You want more? They’re also equipped with start-of-the-art wind impact reduction, voice controlled receipt and rejection of incoming calls, and gobs of other bells and whistles too numerous to list here.
The new SCALA RIDER® Q2™ MULTISET is now available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty motorcycle shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems website at www.cardosystems.com. The set lists for $395.95, a pretty small price to pay for helping to keep your brains on the inside of your skull.
