Cardo celebrates 15 years of wireless communications

Cardo, a pioneer of Bluetooth communication for motorcycles, is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Based in Plano in the United States, Cardo entered the motorcycle sector in 2004 with the Scala Rider and its products are now available in more than 85 countries.

It has gone on to specialise in the design, development, manufacturing and sale of communication and entertainment systems for motorcycle helmets.

To celebrate its 15 years in the business, Cardo Systems has announced its latest joint development with JBL, allowing customers the ‘Ultimate Sound Experience’.

Cardo says it has achieved numerous world firsts, including:

2004: World’s first motorcycle Bluetooth headset

2015: World’s first ‘Mesh’ device – the first motorcycle communicator to go beyond Bluetooth and introduce Dynamic Mesh Communication (DMC)

2018: World’s first Natural Voice Operation with direct access to ‘Hey Siri’ and ‘OK Google’

The complete Cardo range is developed to be IP67 waterproof.

Cardo’s app allows users to create ‘groups’ of riders, manage their favorite radio stations, configure phone speed dials, control settings, adjust volumes and see the units battery status at a glance.
