April 16, 2012

PITTSBURGH, April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communication for motorcycle helmets, will showcase the world’s first Bluetooth communication and entertainment system made especially for bicyclists, the cardo BK-1, at North America’s largest cycling festival, the Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic. The festival takes place April 19-22 at the Laguna Seca Recreation Area near Monterey, California. Cardo Systems will demonstrate its new bicycle product to cycling fans at Sponsor Row, Booth #723. The company will conduct a daily drawing for one free cardo BK-1 duo each day of the festival.

“The Sea Otter Classic is an event that is highly anticipated by cycling fans worldwide,” said Cardo’s CEO Abraham Glezerman. “We look forward to showing festival goers how the cardo BK-1 can enhance their fun and safety as they enjoy their favorite sport. We’re excited about providing attendees a daily drawing for a chance to win one free cardo BK-1 duo per day.”

Installing in virtually any bicycle helmet in just minutes, the BK-1 delivers voice-activated, two-way or three-way bike-to-bike communication capabilities. Cyclists can converse with fellow BK-1 users at a distance of up to 1,600 feet. The cardo BK-1 also provides cyclists with a way to enjoy safe, hands-free use of Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, MP3 players, or GPS devices.

Available at www.cardosystems.com and from authorized dealers, the incredibly smart BK-1 system was built with rider convenience and comfort in mind. With hovering speakers that avoid ear contact and a noise-cancelling microphone, the BK-1 enables riders to converse with fellow cyclists, make, receive, and decline mobile phone calls, and use Bluetooth-equipped MP3 or smartphone players as well as GPS devices.

Developed to withstand the rigors of road cycling, triathlon competitions, mountain biking, commuting, and everyday riding, the cardo BK-1 is light and aerodynamic despite its rugged construction. The unit features a rechargeable battery that provides up to seven hours of talk time. It also comes with a multi-functional USB jack to enable software updates and a universal travel charger.

The BK-1 is now available online at www.cardosystems.com, or at select authorized dealers. For more information, please visit www.cardosystems.com.
