With the introduction in 2004 of the scala riderŪ Bluetooth line of headsets, Cardo literally pioneered a new product category that was non-existent until then and as their product line gradually expanded, they added many "firsts" in terms of features and functions. Today, the scala riderŪ line not only includes the most advanced devices in the category but also the widest spectrum of products, from solid entry level products to the most feature rich communication and entertainment system available. scala rider products can be found in motorcycle accessory stores in over 60 countries.
The Q3 single headset offers a great range of bike-to-bike intercom in full duplex as well as rider-to-passenger intercom. Users can even plug in their own speakers.
