Cardo scala rider® G9 Named "Motorcycle Intercom of the Year" by webBikeWorld.com

Product Also Chosen # 1 by "Motorcyclist Magazine"

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardo Systems, Inc., the world's market leader in 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 today's global marketplace. 

"We are very pleased that webBikeWorld, the leading motorcycle accessory site, has recognized the scala rider G9 as the world's best Intercom for motorcycle riders. We equally appreciate that "Motorcyclist Magazine" has recently picked our G9 as the winner among all leading contenders. These, and other recognitions give us further encouragement to continue our pursuit for true innovation and uncompromising quality," said Cardo's CEO Abraham Glezerman. "The scala rider G9, our flagship product, is an immensely versatile, yet robust and user-friendly product, offering riders safe voice-controlled operation and intuitive on-line personalization to fit their individual riding styles. In addition to its unmatched high-end features, the G9 provides both crystal-clear stereo music sound and voice transmissions. Uniquely, the G9 also features an on-line social network where riders can meet 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 nine 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 additional unique  feature, designed to provide users an online meeting place where they can personalize their G9, find fellow enthusiasts, set up and invite friends to riding tours and join tours of others.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
