Since entering the motorcycle Bluetooth market in 2004 with its ‘Scala Rider’, Cardo Systems has cemented its place as one of the global market leaders in wireless communications systems for motorcyclists.
Dr. Abraham Glezerman, Founder and CEO of Cardo Systems said: “This has been a tremendous ride. When we first developed our original Bluetooth earpiece into a motorcycle communication system, we knew we were on to something, but what we didn’t know it would grow this big – we created a whole new market. Reflecting back on the past 15 years, we are extremely proud and I believe the next 15 years will be just as exciting!”
