When you’re on the open road, communicating with fellow riders can be incredibly important, especially when you’re traveling long distances at high speeds. However, it’s certainly not practical or safe to be using a cellphone while on a motorcycle, which is where rider communication systems come into play.
One of the newest products to come out is from Cardo Systems, the manufacturer of the renowned Scala Rider line of Bluetooth communication systems. Unveiled at the EICMA Show in Milan earlier this fall, this communications system is poised to offer state-of-the-art technology to riders who want to stay connected as they go.

Additionally, it offers an updated Music Sharing™ technology and real-time iPhone battery information, which allows users to take advantage of smartphones without taking their focus off the road. Also included in the G9x is on-the-go battery charging, replaceable speakers and a hybrid microphone.
The headset boasts a range of up to almost one mile, ensuring that even riders who get separated on the open road will be able to communicate and stay on top of developments. Up to four riders can conference via the intercom, although the system permits users to toggle between eight other people.
