If you and your friends own motorcycles and like to ride out together on occasion, you know that communication is a problem. You can’t really take a call with a helmet on, and yelling at each other over the sounds of your engines can be a little rough on your vocal chords. Obviously the best way to solve this issue is by placing a communication device within your helmet, and the Cardo Scala Rider G9 is here to do just that.
One of its main features is its “One+8” Intercom which will give you crystal clear connection to as many as eight riding buddies within a mile radius. It has voice command connectivity that will let you simply say the name of one of your friends, and you can chat as you travel down the open road. If you want to do a conference call, you can use the 4-Way Intercom system. This is a perfect Bluetooth solution for group rides, alerting friends about obstacles ahead, and also listening to music. It can connect to your smartphone and MP3 player to stream music, or you can use the built-in FM radio. Just be prepared to spend about $500 on it.
