Cardo launches groundbreaking helmet-mounted Bluetooth® communication and entertainment system for cyclists 

Maker of the legendary scala rider® line of motorcycle headsets introduces the cardo BK-1 for bicyclists

Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth
communications for motorcycle helmets, today announced the launch of the
cardo BK-1, an innovative communication and entertainment product designed especially for cyclists. The BK-1
incorporates the engineering expertise and user experience the company
has gained as maker of the world-renowned scala rider® line of
motorcycle headsets. The BK-1 delivers voice-activated,
two-way, or three-way bike-to-bike communication capabilities that
allow cyclists to easily converse with fellow BK-1
users who are up to 1,600 feet apart. With cardo BK-1, cyclists can also
enjoy safe, hands-free use of Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, MP3
players, or GPS devices.

With a sleek, lightweight design that installs in virtually any bicycle helmet in minutes, the cardo BK-1
offers a safe, convenient, and fun way to converse with one or two
fellow cyclists at great distances in full conference mode. Using a
noise-cancelling microphone and hovering speakers that avoid ear
contact, the BK-1 is all about maximizing comfort and
delivering a full range of communication options for cyclists. Riders
can use the system to enjoy Bluetooth-enabled entertainment or
navigation devices on the go – making, receiving, or declining mobile
phone calls via voice command or at the touch of a button. The system
connects wirelessly to Bluetooth-equipped MP3 or smartphone players and
to GPS devices. This enables cyclists to listen to their favorite
playlists, receive in-ear GPS navigation instructions, conduct
bike-to-bike intercom communications, or make mobile calls while
cycling. The cardo BK-1 offers it all in one remarkably smart system.

Despite its high-end features and functions, the cardo BK-1 is
incredibly easy to install and operate. It is designed for road
cyclists, triathletes, mountain bikers, commuters, and casual riders
alike. For cycling enthusiasts, it brings the benefits of communicating
without the need to ride side by side. Additionally, staying in touch
removes the uncertainties presented by turns taken by forward riders at
intersections, Ts, and Ys in the road.

The cardo BK-1 opens
up a new world of communication and entertainment possibilities for
cyclists,” said Cardo’s CEO Abraham Glezerman. “Since Cardo Systems has
pioneered communication technology for motorcycle and snowmobile
helmets, cyclists can benefit from this unique experience and use our BK-1 with confidence, knowing that the technology and design have been perfected in the harshest environments

The cardo BK-1
provides up to seven hours of talk time on a rechargeable battery that
requires only four hours to fully charge. It comes with a
multi-functional USB jack to accommodate operating software upgrades, as
well as a universal travel charger. The BK-1 is now available at select distributors, retail outlets and specialty shops. For further information about the cardo BK-1, email us at and visit

I have been enjoying listening to music through it from my iPhone, and I can answer the phone without having to resort to grabbing the phone out of my pack (and usually missing the call).
