Cardo Scala Rider G9 Powerset

The newest addition to the Cardo headset lineup and touting major upgrades over the G4 system, the brand new Cardo Systems Scala Rider G9 powerset is utilizing the most advanced technology and represents one of the most innovative bluetooth communicators we've seen to date. Some of the new features are as follows:

  • One + 8 Pairing: Communicate with up to eight other riders in full-duplex toggling mode
  • Voice Recognition: Allows communication with all eight riders by simply speaking their names
  • Full Duplex: Full Duplex communication with up to 4 riders

  • Social Networking: Set up a social group based on physical location, riding groups and find other G9 users
  • Flash Pairing: Quick pairing of devices, simply touch the two G9 units and in less than 1 second they are paired
  • Mobile Phone Conference Calls: Full duplex telephone calls between a caller and both the rider and passenger
  • Larger Buttons: Easier to navigate the device with gloves
  • Two microphone options: Includes both boom mic and wired microphone

The G9 headset retains all the features of the very popular G4 including:

  • A2DP and MP3 connectivity to stream stereo music
  • Built in FM radio with RDS smart scan
  • Noise cancelling microphone
  • Weather and dust resistant design
  • Up to 1.6km range in ideal terrain

Los mejores intercomuncadores Muy buenos puedes hacer lo que se ocurra con ellos en cuanto a comunicaciones. Muy recomendables. December 31, 2013
Slow to set up but, performs as promised I purchased a matched pair of the Scala Rider G9 's. The physical install was easy, the set up was slow and is best performed online as the product needed a software update upon delivery. Once completed the headsets work as promised. I experienced an intercom range of about 3/4 of a mile in hilly terrain, the Bluetooth connection for music is crystal clear and the noise sensitive volume adjustment is handy and works well. December 26, 2013
Mandatory but Difficult We host motorcycle riding events and picked these up right before heading out on the fall NUT-U Epic which is a 1200 mile route in four days. Unfortunately, the unit would interrupt my music randomly to tell me, "Radio On" and then switch to the radio. Various other control issues, but when I shut it completely off and turned it back on it seemed to help. Being able to talk with my tail gunner was an incredible experience and mandatory to help our rides go smoothly. Although I don't know how I got along without these, the annoying control issues really made me despise the units. We've downloaded the software update and used them for a motorcycle escort after that. I couldn't use it to contact my tail gunner a few times and other times I could, but they could contact me. However, we were in a pretty bad rain and wind storm and he couldn't hear my higher pitched female voice over the background noise. My tail gunner has no issues with his headset, so now that our events are over I'll take it out to 'play' with it and see if perhaps it's a user issue rather than a technical issue. One other note on the voice commands to use your phone; I couldn't get that to work at all. Maybe it's my female voice, or could be how I've named my contacts but it would never recognize who I was trying to call. However, when our motorcycle escort hit rain and we were running late for our hand-off, it was quite nice to be able to answer the phone when they called to ensure we were all right. However, being in the rain/wind storm it was quite difficult for us to hear each other. Emergency calls only for me from now on. All of that being said, again I must state that these are mandatory if you're riding in a group. Once they work, they are quite handy and the range is fairly impressive. The rides we've just completed are pretty extreme, with rough canyons and horrific weather. I would buy these again, however I may want to exchange my personal headset should it continue to malfunction. Seeing how my tail gunner has no issues with his, I'd be inclined to think I happened to get a wanky unit and get it replaced. October 7, 2013
Love it, but could be better I use my Scala primarily for the bluetooth music so I can't really comment too much on the communication aspect. I have tried to use the comms a few time, but it's difficult to explain to a passenger how to use the system they've never seen. Installation is relative simple, but it does take some time. I have mine mounted in my Arai Corsair V. Music: It connects easily to bluetooth and the control are relatively simple to use with gloves on. The volume control is a problem. I would like to be able to turn the automatic volume control completely off. The total volume is too quiet. I wear a full face helmet and usually wear ear plugs as well. WIth ear plugs in it is difficult to hear the music at higher speed (highway not track). No problems without earplugs though. Voice Activation is annoying, I finally just turned it off. Sounds like a good idea, but not if you cough too loud or say hello to someone and it starts trying to make a phone call. I have received phone calls on the unit and it works reasonably well. The part I don't like is when you accidentally push the wrong button and it starts trying to make a call. Yes you are supposed to remain quiet and it will time out, but I have had wind noise somehow call the last person I called. Overview: I love the unit! Streaming music and changing tracks it's great! I feel it could be improved greatly however. September 26, 2013
Good product, poor instructions. The Scalas are great fro bike to bike communication as well as GPS & music. However, the instructions to make that all happen are poor. September 9, 2013
Don't buy this unless you just want to talk with one other person! We purchased four of these for our 4 dual sport riders thinking that this would be an improvement over our helmet mounted, push-to-talk, FRS / GMRS based radios. We wanted the ability to communicate with other riders individually, but the main goal was to be able to contact all 3 other riders at once. Reading the marketing materials, this certainly seems possible: * One + 8 Pairing: Communicate with up to eight other riders in full-duplex toggling mode * Full Duplex: Full Duplex communication with up to 4 riders The thing was, we could never get anything to work other than directly contacting one other buddy by name. (There were many issues with that as well, but I will try to stay focused on the main issue here). After much head (helmet) banging and finally a call to Cardo, now we know why - in short, you can't do any of the things the marketing would lead you to believe. These radios basically have a single full-duplex channel with which you can communicate with *one* other radio some distance away. How do you get "Full Duplex communication with up to 4 riders" then? Well, each of the radios can also be bluetooth paired with another radio, assuming that other radio is a rider sitting on your bike with you. So basically, two couples touring on two bikes is going to work, nothing else will. The One + 8 pairing is equally baffling - there is no way to talk to 8 other riders at once, or anything other than one other remote rider in fact. "full-duplex toggling mode" is marketspeak for "call somone, hang up when you are done, then call someone else". By the same logic a cell phone could be called "One + 4,000,000,000 Pairing: Communicate with up to four billion other riders in full-duplex toggling mode". Except that you can actually do conference calls on phones... On top of all of this, the voice activated (and manual) connection to other riders is extremely slow and unreliable. It never happens faster than a few seconds and can take 10 seconds, or just fail altogether. A $10 FRS radio is far more reliable and you can warn people of hazards ahead instantly - the delays and lack of quick intercom / broadcast capability make these unusable for most applications. August 26, 2013
Excellant product We bought these 2 weeks before leaving on a trip to Mexico, easy to install and not to hard to set up. We've never had any bluetooth stuff so we found that to be neat. On the Road coming down we were surprised how clear the volume was, even took a call while riding and had no problems on either end of the call. Found that somtimes we wanted radio off or music off and it would not shut that feature off without a few try's, not that big of a deal. The only thing that we thought this product would benefit from would be a radio search feature instead of 6 programed channels, but it may have it, we just haven't found it yet. All in all great product that has now been weather tested, high speed wind noise approved, and I would recommed this product. August 12, 2013
Durability - not really so good First of all, this is towards the G4 Powerset that I purchased for myself and my wife. Never really used most of the G4 features but what I want to share is the durability issue with my set. It is still connected and looks pretty good but my issues have been with bike to bike communication with my wife. I have had my unit for some 30 months with just occasional use. Truthfully, not even weekly and sometimes not even monthly. The unit has always worked sometimes but never really consistently. Some rides with be without issue and others rides the dog gone thing would almost not work at all. And all I am talking about is just normal conversation. Talk a few sentences - no communication - re establish communication - a few sentences - no communication and on and on and on this way. It became a joke when we stopped and asked each other if we heard one another about just how much yelling we were doing to try and re establish communication. I actually really like this unit when it is working but truthfully - it has never worked enough to justify the cost. Support - re pair the unit - that all they said. I did not yell at them as much as I should have but I kind of wish I had. I want to buy another communication set but just can not see expending more money on the same product that did not provide satisfactory service in the first place or provide any suitable assistance.

Andy F: Works great, wish radio channel searching was easier. Jun 14, 2014
Dianne D: At the time of purchase, these seemed like the best option out there. Now I believe the Sena brand has a good (maybe better?) option out there, but I have no regrets about this purchase and we're still using them successfully nearly 2 years later. Mar 1, 2014
WAYNE C J: Had the G4 and loved it. Decided to get power set to communicate with spouse and others. Feature rich with voice command, cell phone, read back text, stereo music, intercom, group talk, click to link and range is the best in the market. Feb 24, 2014

A shopper asked: Is it possible to use it on bycicle helmets? Is there any adaptor? Nov 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Clemens M: You could probably finagle something to tape it to the helmet with the included sticky pad but since a bycicle helmet doesnt cover the ears, you would need to replace the speakers with ear phones which is possible to do. However, the whole assembly including the boom mic would probably be heavy enough to tilt your helmet. Nov 17, 2013
Reply to Clemens Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Sid A: The attaching clamp is made for a thin shell; it slides up under the padding on the inside of the helmet. If your bike helmet can do that, then you could attach it that way.

But the set also came with an adhesive mount. I'm sure that would work on almost any kind of helmet.

A shopper asked: Can the G9 be connected to a A2DP source, while having a simultaneous, another Hands free / Headset profile connection? for eg., While i am hearing music streaming from my iPod (or pillion's smart phone), can I answer an incoming call from my Phone? Oct 22, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
PETER L: Yes, you can have the G( connected to both a Bluetooth device and an A2DP device. Here is the list of priorities per the manual.

Higher Priority
1. Mobile Phone audio or GPS instructions*
2. Intercom/”One+8”/Click-to-Link
3. A2DP (Stereo Bluetooth) audio
4. FM Radio (Built-in)
5. AUX (for corded connection i.e. Music Players)
*GPS instructions from Smartphone GPS Apps are
prioritized like A2DP audio
?
Lower Priority
For example:
• Incoming mobile phone calls interrupt ongoing intercom calls
• Incoming intercom calls will interrupt ongoing A2DP music
Click-to-Link, Intercom and “One+8” calls have the same priority:
Click-to-Link requests will not interrupt any type of Intercom call
in progress, and vice-versa.

Bottom line, a cell phone call will interrupt your iPod.

Min Hee K: i don't personally use this function but the husband does. he said calls take priority over music so if a call comes in, the music will pause & you'll have to push the requisite scala button to answer your call. once the call has ended, music should resume. Oct 22, 2013

Derek C: It works perfect with my iPhone 4S. iPod works great and as far as navigation I just use the map that comes on the iPhones and navigate with that. It will interrupt my music and tell me where to turn and restart music. I'm not a big fan of Siri, but it's handy when using my headset. One touch and siri comes on and i can do whatever i need.

A shopper asked: How does the noise canceling tech on the G9 compare to the sena smh10 or the the interphone f5 May 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robbo: I cannot answer your comparison question about the G9 and other units. All I can tell you is that I spoke to a riding buddy today - he was at home, I was on the road - and he had no idea I was riding down a bumpy road on a fairly loud triumph tiger with aftermarket exhaust. My friend, who is never impressed, said he was impressed at the sound quality. I also had a medical assistant call me to speak with me about a prescription as I wailed along at 80mph in a closed position modular helmet - not a particularly quiet one either - and he had no idea I was on a motorcycle. I can tell you both the G4 and G9 have no problems with noise cancellation. I would PREFER a port for earbuds, but with hearing protection in place, and relying on the in-helmet speakers, I have no trouble hearing behind a small windscreen of a duc multistrada 12 or a triumph tiger, up to about 80mph, at which point I prefer to ride and not talk. May 28, 2012
Reply to Robbo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Winsur4: I can only tell you that it is the best I have ever used. Not one person I have talked to on the phone knew I was on a motorcycle. Not even when there was high wind noise or I was standing still and I could clearly hear the cam noise and exhaust from my motorcycle. How can you beat that? May 23, 2012
Reply to Winsur4 Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Cardo G9 features better quality speakers than the Sena SMH10 and the Interphone F5. As a result, the noise canceling technology will be more efficient with that system. May 17, 2012

A shopper asked: How do the microphones physically attach to the Bluetooth module? Is it some proprietary connection or something more standardized? I'm trying to determine if I can replace the included boom/wired mics with a throat mic, such as those made by Iasus. Because the G9 is so new I havent heard of anyone attempting this or even how the G9 mics attach. Looking at the Revzila G9 video it looked li,e the mics may attach with a headphone-style jack but it was kind of hard to tell. May 7, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robbo: I believe you can get a pdf of the manual which shows how the boom and chinbar mounts for the two different mic types are attached. I would say it's a propriatary mounting, not a standard mic mount setup. Also, email tech support for a more definitive answer. May 28, 2012
Reply to Robbo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: No, you will not be able to replace the speakers or the microphone on the Cardo Scala Rider G9 with generic products as Cardo uses their own proprietary type of connection. May 10, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Winsur4: The Power Set contains 2 complete Scala Rider G9s. It slightly discounts the price of buying 2 separate units.

The Scala G9 is for single rider to use with all the features alone. That includes FM radio, MP3, Phone and other blue tooth connectivity.

The Scala G9 can also pair with the Q2 or G4.

Charles J H: The mic is long enough and the unit will stick on to the side of the helmet. As to the speakers. They have Velcro on their underside so I guess you could easily attach the mating Velcro to the ear v straps.

A shopper asked: Does sound quality drop significantly when full duplex communication is held with all four passengers at the same time? Is this the intercom function? Apr 9, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The sound quality in full-duplex/intercom mode will fluctuate based on surroundings for rider to rider use because the connection between the units, although having great range, is based on line-of-sight. So, any obstruction between yourself and another bike may reduce the quality of the connection. Rider to passenger connections are always best. Apr 19, 2013

A shopper asked: Can you please give more detail on what "1 + 8 full duplex toggle mode" means? It implies 9 riders can all talk to one another, but the "toggle mode" clause sounds like it might be something tricky. How does this work in the real world? Thx! Jun 8, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: You will be able to pair with up to 8 other G9 devices (One + 8 friends) and also connect with one at a time (toggling mode) by pronouncing their name.

The only condition to be able to use that feature is that you have to pre-record your name so your friends will be able to contact you by saying your name.

Jorge Andres P: It can connect up to 1+ 8 riders, but it can talk up to 4 riders at the same time. The 1+ 8 mean that you have 8 friends you can talk whenever you want, one at the time. You can download the manual free. Jun 25, 2012

A shopper asked: And if it does fit, is it possible to purchase just the G9 units themselves and not the entire mounting kit? May 19, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robbo: I checked with tech support on the issue of the G9 mounting to G4 helmet platform.
They said, they know it goes the other way - the G4 will connect to the G9 mount - but weren't sure it would work with G9 to G4 helmet mounts. Tech recommends that one get G9 helmet mounts for any G4s, in that the mics and the speakers are improved. I personally tried the G9 on the G4 mount and it didn't seem to be a stellar fit. I didn't try the functionality. So, I would tend to go with tech support and get G9 mounting systems for any G4.

Robbo: The manual and tech support say the G9 will communicate/accept pairing with the G4. I haven't tried yet, and have both. Your MP3 should work fine, and the options set up allows you to set priorities for which functions take precendence. The 500 buck, or thereabouts, set is a pair - for two helmets. Either two riders, or rider and passenger. I've tried both ways. My wife who tends to hate this stuff, is slowly becoming a fan. I've not mastered the fine art of having one set linked to music and having the other rider/user hearing the music. However on the G4 I was experimenting trying to call my riding buddy by cell phone instead of intercom. I got his home number and wife instead, and then somehow - I still don't know how, maybe clicked his A or B designation - got his wife, me and him all on a three way phone call. I've not duplicated this yet. I don't recall seeing this in the manual. But then the manual is not known as the most intuitive item around. I'm still baffled by some functions, and just bang my way around, ususally successfully. So you can link a phone function to both ride A and rider B, but I frankly cannot tell you how that occurs.

RevZilla: Yes, you can communicate between the G4 and the G9. The G9 Powerset comes with two headsets, and if you are using the MP3 player, it will automatically cancel for you to talk between each other. May 14, 2012

RevZilla: Yes, you will be able to pair the Cardo Scala Rider Q2 Pro with the Cardo Scala Rider G9, but you will not be able to pair up to 9 riders. Also if you are using the Q2, it will only work up to its range which is about half the distance the G9 is capable of. May 10, 2012

RevZilla: If you want to upgrade from the Cardo Scala Rider G4, you will need to get the Cardo G9. The Cardo Scala Rider G9 features improved speakers, microphone quality, and also the possibility to be paired with up to 8 riders. May 10, 2012

RevZilla: The Cardo Scala Rider G9 Powerset will only be compatible with Cardo communication systems and the Schuberth SRC system. In order to communicate with different brand systems, you will have to go through a phone communication. Apr 27, 2012

A shopper asked: I want to use this system for snowmobiling. Has anyone used this for snowmobiling in mountainous areas and how well does the microphone work on a motocross style helmet? Oct 22, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel L: Should work fine for snowmobiling for talking to other Sena users and connecting to your bluetooth device for music. If you are in a remote location and do not have signal, data, streaming, and phone calls will be impacted - but that it the case whenever you don't have signal. Nov 19, 2013

A shopper asked: I have several questions regarding my Nolan N 104 helmet and bluetooth communications. First, while I am intrigued by the Nolan N-Com B4 and its great integration with the helmet, there seems to be a lot of negative reviews. Second, will the Cardo Scala G9 fit on the N 104? Oct 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sid A: I would believe so. The attachment hardware on the Cardos is so universal, that even though I don't have a Nolan, I'm sure it would fit. All you need is a little gap between the cheek pad and the shell for a thin piece to slide into.

Another side note. We've ridden with many other riders with built in Bluetooth communications such as Nolan and Schuberth, and I've never found a helmet with the range of the G9 from Cardo. Helmet comms lose contact at 50-75% of the distance that two G9's can communicate. It's also easier to borrow an outlet at a campground or restaurant where you don't have to leave your whole helmet there to charge it. Just my experience. Finally, with the Cardos, you can cheaply buy another helmet base connector and be able to switch your communications between more than one helmet. I use my G9 on my street and dirt helmets, and it takes three seconds to make the change.

A shopper asked: Does the G9 fit on the Klim F4 helmet with the clamp and how well does this system work on this style of helmet? Dec 12, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The G9 can be installed on almost any helmet (if you have doubts feel free to call our Gear Geeks at 877-792-9455), except when there is an internal sun-visor slider or other similar obstacle in the area that the unit would be located. With that said, the G9 does have a microphone that blocks out most extra noise making it easy for people to understand you while making calls via phone or inter-comm. The speakers are capable of auto-gain (which the user can refine, too), so that as the noise around the rider increases or decreases the volume will automatically adjust accordingly. All in all, if an inter-comm system is going to work with the Klim F4, this is the unit to bet on. The challenge of using the F4 (or any other similar dirt bike helmet) will be the loud noise and the high amount of air flowing into the helmet. This creates a lot of problems with clarity that most inter-comm systems are not set up to handle, and even the G9 might struggle in some situations. Dec 13, 2012

A shopper asked: Will the Scala G9's work on Nolan N43E Trilogy helmets Jul 22, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Yes, the Cardo Scala Rider G9 will be compatible with the Nolan N43E Helmet but only if you use the sticky part, not the clamp system. The reason for that is that the bottom neck part of the helmet is curved towards the inside of the helmet, and does not allow to install the clamp system without having to cut through that plastic part.

A shopper asked: I have a Shoei Multitec full face flip up helmet. Will the Scala G9 mount ok to it? Which mic should I use, the boom or the wired? I also have a Shoei RJ Platinum R open face helmet. Do I need to also order another mounting plate and another mic for it so I can change the Scala back and forth ? I will be ordering the G9 Powerset since my wife rides as a passenger...she wears only the open face style helmet....
Thanks for your reply.
