    Cardo Scala Rider Freecom 4: Full Review and Price 

    Why choose Cardo Freecom 4

    The Cardo Scala Rider Freecom 4 intercom is the first device from Cardo to allow communication between riders riding different bikes (up to 4 users).

    Unlike Freecom 1 and 2 (designed specifically for solo riders), Scala Rider Freecom 4 allows communications between rider and passenger and between bikes.

    Its main features are:

    • has two Bluetooth channels
    • universal

    Compatibility:

    • the radio
    • allows you to listen to other devices along with your passenger
    • can connect with the satnav and smartphone

    The Freecom 4 (as well as all Cardo devices) is waterproof and dustproof (it has IP67 certification), a key feature if you are a biker who is not afraid to travel in the rain. We like the design, which is very sleek.

    You can install it on any helmet: whether jet, full-face, or modular.

    What you will find in the box

    Inside the box of the Scala Rider Freecom 4 you will find:

    • Interphone Scala Rider Freecom 4
    • A hybrid microphone
    • Jet helmet microphone
    • Microphone for full-face helmets
    • Mounting accessories
    • Sled
    • Adhesive
    • Battery charger

    Range

    Freecom 4 is specially designed for bike-to-bike communication and has a range of up to 1.2km.

    Audio

    Freecom 4 has outstanding audio quality, thanks to HD stereo earbuds, and is equipped with AGC technology (a feature that allows automatic volume adjustment depending on external noise).

    However, as with any intercom, it is worth remembering that it will affect your helmet’s type and level of soundproofing quite a bit. Up to 120km/h, the audio quality of the intercom is excellent.

    It is equipped with “parallel audio + talk/navigation” function: so you can listen to both navigation and music simultaneously.

    Battery life

    The Freecom 4‘s battery life has been increased to 13 hours in intercom mode (basically about a full day of travel).

    To whom it is addressed
