Cardo Intercom: the 4 Best Cardo Motorcycle Intercoms

    Best Cardo Motorcycle Intercoms

    Cardo Intercom

    Cardo System is an American company that leads the industry in headsets for wireless communication between motorcyclists.

    In 2004 by launching the Scala Rider Bluetooth earphones on the market, it pioneered a product category that did not exist until then.

    Cardo‘s goal is to give users the best communication devices available.

    The 4 best motorcycle intercoms Cardo Scale Rider

    Before we begin, I would like to clarify one small thing: all of the Cardo intercoms we list are part of the Scala Rider category. The various Cardo models Q1, Q2, Q3, G4, G9, Freecom 1, Freecom 2, and Freecom 4 will soon go out of production.

    Cardo Freecom 1+

    The entry-level device in the Cardo System family is the Freecom 1+, an intercom designed for riders who like to travel with only their passenger.

    It is a device that allows 2 devices to be connected via Bluetooth, i.e. a phone and a navigation system.

    Freecom 1+ allows you to listen from your smartphone – the 40mm stereo HD earbuds will make many music lovers happy – and with its 13 hours of battery life, you can use it as you want.

    Then, thanks to the Vox controls, you can answer and make calls hands-free, leaving them firmly on the handlebars.

    As mentioned in the beginning, we recommend this intercom if you love to ride alone with your passenger and enjoy the changing landscape bend after bend.

    Cardo Freecom 2+

    As the name suggests, this model is a worthy successor to the Freecom 1+.

    It adds to the features of its younger sibling – the option to communicate with your passenger and another rider, and share music. While you communicate with your passenger, both music and directions from your GPS navigator will be left in the background.

    Through Cardo’s dedicated SmartSet app, you can manage and change the parameters of your intercom as you like.

    Freecom 2 Plus is suitable for those who travel and want to communicate with their partners.

    Cardo Freecom 4+ intercom

    With its Freecom 4+, Cardo enters the mid-range with a quality device that will allow you to communicate with a group of friends.

    In addition to all the features of the previous models, Freecom 4+ offers a bike-to-bike 1.2 km range. Still, if we consider the example of a group of 4 riders, the maximum distance between the first rider and the farthest 4 riders can reach a maximum of 3.6 km.

    With Cardo Freecom 4 Plus, you can share the radio with all 4 users (even non-Cardo devices) or your favorite playlist with your passenger.

    With the addition of voice commands, you can operate your device without ever taking your hands off the steering wheel.

    We recommend Freecom 4+ if you often travel together with a small group of friends.

    Cardo Packtalk Bold

    With Packtalk Bold, Cardo System is committed to raising the bar for its intercoms to meet users’ needs.

    Cardo Packtalk is arguably the most advanced and feature-rich intercom available today, adding to the already mentioned features of its little siblings, the ability to communicate with up to 15 riders within a maximum radius of 8km, thanks to DMC technology.

    Through Bluetooth, you can communicate in conference mode for up to 4 users and a maximum radius of 1600m, you can have private communication that others cannot hear, and you can also receive an external call and share it with the group.

    Packtalk Bold is the perfect choice for you if you are looking for the best the market has to offer: in terms of group communications, great range, numerous features, and versatility.

    Suppose we want to nitpick and find a flaw in this high-range product besides its price (which everyone would prefer to be lower). In that case, its battery life, compared to other competing top-of-the-range products, is slightly limited, especially for those who take long trips.

    With convenient voice commands, Packtalk Bold also allows it to be commanded at all times without ever taking your hands off the handlebars.

    Just say “Hello Cardo,” and it will respond instantly.

    Convenient, isn’t it?


    With this post, we hope we have provided you with all the information you need to choose the best Cardo motorcycle intercom.
