Cardo’s scala rider Q3 and Q1 Communication Systems Named “Motorcycle Intercom of the Year”

Replacing the scala rider Q2Pro products, the Q1 and Q3 models feature a sleek new design with outstanding ergonomics, longer battery life and new features and functions.

Cardo Systems, Inc., a market leader in wireless bluetooth communications for motorcycle helmets, announced that its scala rider Q1 TeamSet and Q3 MultiSet have received the 2013 Motorcycle Intercom of the Year Award by webBikeWorld. 


WebBikeWorld’s verdict: "Cardo went all-out and came up with a slimmed-down, up-scaled, easy-to-use and price-competitive bluetooth intercom system."


Replacing the world-leading scala rider Q2Pro products, the Q1 and Q3 models feature a sleek new design with outstanding ergonomics, longer battery life and new features and functions. As another industry "first," both the Q1 and the Q3 offer "music sharing," allowing both rider and passenger to listen to the same song from their smartphone or other A2DP sources. Both products come with optional boom-mounted or corded microphones and speaker jacks for plugging in replacement speakers.


“We truly appreciate the recognition we have received and it is especially gratifying to see our products named Motorcycle Intercom of the Year a second year in a row," said Cardo CEO, Abraham Glezerman. 

The new scala rider Q1 and Q3 are very easy to install and to use. The bike-to-bike intercom allows users to communicate via intercom with fellow riders at great distances, conduct mobile phone calls, listen to the built-in FM radio, receive streaming stereo music from their smartphones, get directions from their GPS devices and control most of these features in a safe manner by voice command.


The scala rider Q1 and Q3 come in single and double-unit packages. In addition, the company has recently launched an entry level model of its Q-Series, the scala rider Qz. Towards the end of January 2014, Cardo will also begin worldwide shipments of its new flagship product, the scala rider G9x.
