Polaris and Victory Motorcycles Partner with Cardo Systems
The Bluetooth headset, dubbed Cardo Scala Rider Q, features rider to rider intercom communication up to 500m/1,640ft. However, Cardo warns that results may vary according to traffic, terrain and line of site.
“Both companies are leaders and experts in their fields; Cardo, at providing the most innovative and technically advanced Bluetooth helmet headsets with features that are ground-breaking to the industry and Polaris and Victory Motorcycles, as a leader in the development of an array of advanced, fun-to-ride off and on-road vehicles for a multitude of riding enthusiasts across markets, including ATV, side-by-side, motorcycle and snowmobile markets,” said Abraham Glezerman, Chairman and CEO of Cardo Systems.
The Cardo Scala Rider Q2 headset also allows riders to connect wireless by Bluetooth to one of the following audio sources including: in-helmet voice instructions from a GPS unit, mobile phone conversations with third parties and intercom conversations with passengers and with other riders.
The headsets also feature high-quality FM radio transmissions from the embedded FM radio. It sports a noise-canceling microphone and speaker booster and is fully rain, snow and mud resistant. An MP3 player can also be connected to the headset’s embedded auxiliary jack to receive wired STEREO music.
“Adding the Cardo Scala Rider system to our catalog is a natural fit,” says Jason Toso of Victory Motorcycles, in a release. “We strive to engineer the best American luxury cruisers and touring motorcycles on the market, and an industry leader such as Cardo is a perfect accessory for our products and our owners, particularly as our touring line has developed.”
