PITTSBURGH, PA – (January 1, 2013) –Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for motorcycle helmets, today announced its scala rider G9 product was selected by webBikeWorld as the “Motorcycle Intercom of the Year.” The award was part of the site’s annual Motorcycle Product of the Year Awards and offers the company’s expert opinions on the very best motorcycle gear available on the marketplace today.

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition from webBikeWorld and also a ranking by Motorcyclist Magazine,” said Cardo’s CEO Abraham Glezerman. “Our G9 provides serious riders with a reliable and easy-to-use product that features crystal-clear audio and hours of battery power to accommodate even the longest rides. It also features a social community which encourages users to meet other riders and experience the adventure of joining a larger motorcycling group.”

WebBikeWorld’s award notice mentions the following about the G9; “It has many useful features and without a doubt, the most effective audio gain control or AGC found on any Bluetooth helmet headset today. There were many new motorcycle intercom systems released in the last year but the Cardo Scala Rider G9 gets the webBikeWorld 2012 Motorcycle Intercom System of the Year Award.”

The Cardo scala rider G9 was also named by Motorcyclist magazine in its January 2013 issue as a “MC Pick” with a four and a half star rating in its “Communicators” category. The magazine noted the G9 was “Perhaps the most unassuming of the group, the Scala G9 struck a chord with us. The good first impression started with the fewest wires/cords required for installation, with the unit swiftly plugging into the helmet and attaching to the mount with one simple motion.”

The Cardo scala rider G9 offers an intuitive interface that enables connectivity to up to eight riders at ranges of one mile. Individual units can be paired by simply “bumping” the units together, and all G9’s can be connected to smartphones and MP3 players. The Cardo Community™ is an interesting feature that allows riders to register their G9 online and gain access to other riders, join tours, and personalize their product.
