Cardo has been on the scene for almost 20 years now, and it’s safe to say they’ve revolutionized the way we, as motorcyclists, communicate. There’s a good chance that you or someone you know uses a product from their famed Packtalk line—and the new Packtalk EDGE is a fantastic evolution in design and function.
For the uninitiated, Cardo’s Packtalk products are in-helmet entertainment and two-way communication systems, using a combination of Bluetooth and Mesh technology. For one thing, riders can route all audio from their smartphone or multimedia system through their helmet in crystal-clear quality. But the rubber really hits the road when it comes to the Packtalk’s communication system. Whether you’re out riding with a buddy or a large group, you’ll be able to chat with each other quickly, easily, and clearly. Not only will that increase the camaraderie among your group, but it adds an extra layer of safety—if there are any hazards up ahead, everyone can know instantly.
Simply put, this is the most advanced communication system on the market. Cardo’s new 2nd generation Dyamic Mesh Communication system links up to 15 separate riders quickly and effortlessly—and keeps them connected at distances up to a full mile. The EDGE features an upgraded Natural Voice engine, which means you’ll never need to press a button—just say “Hey Cardo” and tell it what you need. It’s genuinely foolproof. The EDGE features enhanced JBL Sound, with 40mm high-definition speakers engineered to perfection by JBL’s experts and an improved music processor and with redesigned audio profiles. And the noise-canceling microphone is somehow even more effective than on previous models. Fast charging takes place over a common USB-C connection, and over-the-air software updates make using the EDGE easier than ever.
The Packtalk EDGE is waterproof and has a sleek, modern design with no external antenna. The design is impeccable. And the secure magnetic Air Mount is an engineering wonder. With universal fit and unrivaled performance, the Packtalk EDGE is a must-have for any motorcyclist.
