Cardo partnered with JBL to deliver the best sound quality the market has ever heard. The JBL speakers included with the PackTalk Slim measure 45mm across for a full-range immersive listening experience. You’ll hear balanced bass and crisp treble like never before.
Good technology should only compliment your riding experience. With Cardo BLACK, an advanced Natural Voice Operation platform keeps your hands on your bars where they belong. “Hey Cardo, music on”, “Hey Cardo, next track”, “Hey Cardo, mute audio”; a full suite of menu navigation lies right within easy reach of your vocal fingertips.
The revolutionary Scala Rider PackTalk features dual-core wireless technologies for a stable and active communication network. The Bluetooth mode offers legacy by featuring full backward compatibility with other Scala Rider models. The DMC mode will compliment and expand standard Bluetooth connectivity by offering group communication that is far superior to any other existing alternatives.
DMC technology constantly forms and re-assembles its virtual network, and assures that communication among large groups remains uninterrupted irrespective of the ever-changing environment. Whenever a Cardo PackTalk user cannot directly connect with group members who are beyond the reach of the intercom, it will re-connect to the next most suitable member in the group in order to ‘leapfrog’ the connection to the remote PackTalk user. This system is virtually seamless and adjusts within split seconds to maintain an active network.
When the weather gets tough, the PackTalk keeps going. With the PackTalk being waterproof, any rain, sleet, hail or snow will not have an impact on your PackTalk’s performance.
Cardo Smartset App for Android and iOS devices enables the use of a smartphone as a remote control. It allows for operation of all main features such as A2DP, intercom, FM radio and mobile calls.
