Responding to a clear market demand, Cardo Systems has announced the availability of two new accessories with its introduction of the new Cardo Half Helmet Kit and Shoei Helmet Adapter.
“Our newest accessories open the door for even more riders to experience the superior sound and seamless connectivity only Cardo offers,” said Dan Emodi, chief marketing officer, Cardo Systems. “For our riders choosing to wear an open-face helmet, our new PACKTALK Half Helmet Audio Kit provides convenient compatibility and accessibility to the industry’s top helmet communicators.”
PACKTALK Half Helmet Kit
Recognizing the diverse preferences of motorcyclists, Cardo developed its PACKTALK Half Helmet Audio Kit to offer unparalleled communication and functionality without compromising the integrity of the rider’s chosen helmets. This accessory caters to the needs of riders who have long desired an efficient and effective way to communicate on their rides. Riders who prefer the open-road feel of half helmets can now experience the cutting-edge technology and communication with the PACKTALK Half Helmet Kit for the PACKTALK EDGE, NEO and Custom.
Featuring an all-in-one design, integrating the device cradle, the new kit offers a shorter and more compact speaker cable and a pre-connected microphone-to-cradle setup courtesy of a boom microphone that is pre-installed as a single unit.
Key highlights include:
- A long boom microphone with integrated PT Edge glue plate (same length as current PT Bold half-helmet microphone)
- Modified PACKTALK EDGE cradle preinstalled on the long boom microphone
- Alcohol cleaning pads
- Alternative large boom microphone sponge (in addition to the standard small sponge preinstalled on the microphone)
- Half helmet installation guide.

Cardo has released a dedicated Shoei Helmets adapter. Available for the Shoei Neotec 2, GT-Air 2 and the J-Cruise 2 helmets, the new adapter offers a sleek and simple solution for users of the PACKTALK EDGE, NEO and CUSTOM devices, utilizing Shoei’s pre-engineered mounting area to offer riders more freedom in their choice of communication systems.
The new PACKTALK Half Helmet Kit has an MSRP of $59.95, while the Shoei Adapter Kit has an MSRP of $19.95. Both kits will be available from retailers in late September or, alternatively, can be ordered directly from www.cardosystems.com now.
