Cardo Systems, the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for helmet headsets, now has available its new wireless scala rider G4 PowerSet with corded rather than boom microphones and intercom system specifically designed for snowmobile riders. Now snowmobile riders can speak by intercom with their friends riding on other snowmobiles.
The corded scala rider G4 PowerSet is a set of two pre-paired Bluetooth intercom devices. Each comes with an ultra-thin corded microphone and clamps on to the snowmobile helmet in minutes. The product offers clear audio communications among two or three separate riders or among four riders in total made up of two rider-passenger groups. Intercom communication is full duplex, meaning conversations are simultaneous and do not have the delay of older “walkie talkie” systems. In addition to the Bluetooth intercom between snowmobiles, snowmobilers may also speak wirelessly via their Bluetooth phones.
The scala rider G4 PowerSet with corded microphones is a true multi-device entertainment system that accepts and plays wireless Stereo music from iPods or other MP3 music devices that are A2DP compatible. For added built-in entertainment, each headset sports an embedded FM radio with RDS that allows seek and scan functions and users to save favorites with six station user preset. Additionally, the product can receive in-helmet voice instructions from a Bluetooth enabled GPS device. Voice-recognition (for answering, dialing or rejecting calls), multilingual spoken status announcements (to report incoming and outgoing headset connections) and AGC technology for automatic headset volume adjustments (based on ambient noise and driving speed) all contribute to completely hands-free communication and enjoyment.
To fit into the tightest-fitting snowmobile helmets, the G4 PowerSet features a corded noise-canceling microphone designed for maximum rider comfort. The corded microphone allows for easy maneuvering and can be adjusted according to rider preference. Installation of the headset can be completed in five minutes or less.
The system retails for $489.95.
Note that results may vary according to terrain.
