If you’ve felt envious of the pro riders with their race radios, you can now have your own communication system – and unlike the riders in the big races, you can go wireless.
Cardo Systems has introduced a new model of Bluetooth wireless radios specifically with cyclists in mind. The BK-1 features a design that is similar to cardo’s scala rider line for motorcycle headsets, and offers voice-activated, two-way and even three-way rider communications within a 1,600ft range. It also provides hands-free use with Bluetooth compatible devices including mobile phones, MP3 players and GPS units.
The earpiece is rugged and waterproof and offers an aerodynamic body that should fit virtually all cycling helmets. The system even utilizes a noise-cancelling microphone, while the speakers hover over the ears to avoid blocking out noises such as traffic that need to be heard. The BK-1 offers up to seven hours of talk time, so you can cut the cord and not worry about the battery running out before you.
