Description

The Scala Rider SmartPack Bluetooth System is the latest Scala on the block, positioned as a slightly scaled-down version of Scala’s top-of-the-line PackTalk. Offering the same cutting-edge DMC technology as the PackTalk but more suited for motorcyclists who don’t need to communicate with a large group of riders (+4), the SmartPack is the smart buy for a lot of us.

Cardo’s DMC technology was unveiled for the first time last year as a key feature of their PackTalk system, and in the process totally changed the game of group ride communication. DMC is a mesh-like communication network rather than a daisy-chained, beamer-style network of the kind used in pretty much every other Bluetooth headset out there, now with one exception–the SmartPack.

The Scala Rider SmartPack Bluetooth System is the latest Scala on the block, positioned as a slightly scaled-down version of Scala’s top-of-the-line PackTalk. Offering the same cutting-edge DMC technology as the PackTalk but more suited for motorcyclists who don’t need to communicate with a large group of riders (+4), the SmartPack is the smart buy for a lot of us.

Cardo’s DMC technology was unveiled for the first time last year as a key feature of their PackTalk system, and in the process totally changed the game of group ride communication. DMC is a mesh-like communication network rather than a daisy-chained, beamer-style network of the kind used in pretty much every other Bluetooth headset out there, now with one exception–the SmartPack.

DMC allows riders in your pack to leave the group without impacting the group’s chain of communication. When they fall back into formation, they automatically re-enter the network, just like that. It’s a self-healing network, and there’s is nothing else like it available.

DMC is still only available in TWO systems–the big dog PackTalk, and now the new SmartPack. You’ll pay about $50 less for the SmartPack, but you get pretty much all the functionality of the PackTalk. What you lose is a bit of range in DMC mode–three miles instead of eight in open terrain–and the Smartpack can connect with four other riders, compared to the PackTalk’s fifteen.

In addition to the SmartPack’s awesome group comm capability, you can do everything you would expect to do with a premium Bluetooth system. You can connect to your cellphone, to a GPS device, to other non-Cardo brand headsets using the standard intercom function, use the built-in FM radio, stream music, and more.

Visit Road Rider for a complete walk-through and demo of the new Scala Rider SmartPack, the PackTalk, or any other Bluetooth systems by Scala Rider or Sena.
