Default Review and Install: Scala Rider "PACK TALK" helmet to helmet communications

A few years ago I had the real pleasure of using the Scala Rider G9 Helmet to Helmet snowmobile intercom system. You can read that review here
//www.snowest.com/forum/showthread.php?t=367176
In short, I LOVED THIS UNIT!
Being able to talk HANDS FREE to my fellow riders was nothing short of AWESOME. It added so much to the riding experience!


This year I will be offering up a full review and install article on their latest and greatest technology, "PackTalk". I just ordered THREE units from SCALA and as soon as they arrive I will begin the full review.

Meantime, here is a little teaser of whats to come!


FROM THEIR WEBSITE...

Scala rider PACKTALK introduces ground-breaking DMC™ technology for dynamic group riding, enabling 15 riders to connect at a range of up to 5 miles / 8 km. This, in addition to Bluetooth connectivity with mobile phones, GPS, music, FM radio and other Bluetooth communication systems.



The scala rider® PACKTALK™ introduces groundbreaking DMC™ (Dynamic Meshwork Communication) technology to redefine your riding experience. This new innovative technology introduces the 3rd generation of communication systems for riders, enabling your large rider groups to maintain constant connectivity through a virtual network that is both spontaneous and fluid. Each rider can randomly join, leave and re-join the others without compromising the conversation of the entire group. There is no equivalent in the entire motorcycle communication industry.


The PACKTALK incorporates DMC and Bluetooth® technologies to complement each other. The auto-adaptive nature of Cardo's DMC technology constantly forms and re-assembles itself to ensure that communication among a group of riders remains uninterrupted, irrespective of the ever-changing environment. The complementary Bluetooth mode gives you the freedom to conduct mobile calls, receive navigation instructions, listen to music (via A2DP or the built in FM radio) and connect via intercom with other Bluetooth communication systems. The PACKTALK is the world’s only system with dual communication technologies on board.


With the Cardo SmartSet app and its remote control feature, you may opt to use your smartphone or tablet to control your PACKTALK. Make intercom and phone calls, play music and radio, plus customize the settings - all from your Android or iOS mobile devices.



  • DMC™ Intercom mode for multi-party intercom calls over a virtual private network – with up to 15 riders
  • Unique design: Roller-wheel and flat-plate control panel
  • DMC Bridge™ allows passenger with Bluetooth-only device or outside mobile caller to join a PACKTALK group
  • Private Chat allows 1:1 conversation while no other group members can listen in

  • 4-Way Bluetooth Intercom Conferencing: 2 riders and their passengers or 3 separate riders (Full Duplex)
  • “1+8” Bluetooth Intercom Toggling: Toggle among 8 other riders
  • Click-to-Link® intercom for spontaneous conversation with other scala rider users nearby
  • Voice Command: Voice recognition technology for true hands-free operation
  • Cardo Gateway™: Enables non-Cardo headsets to connect via intercom
  • Intercom-to-Mobile: Calls switch automatically to mobile when out of range
  • Cardo SmartSet™ App for remote control and on-the-go setting customization
  • Cardo Community® platform for social features, device customization & software upgrades
  • Music Sharing™- Rider & Passenger listen to the same stereo music (via A2DP)
  • Parallel Audio-streaming Talk and listen to music at the same time

After a long delay I will finally get going on this review.
Before I got started I wanted to get a new helmet to go along with the new comms units, but it took me a little more time than expected.

This afternoon I picked up a new KLIM F3 helmet that I will use as the test subject to mount these new Pack Talk units to.
