Many of Cardo’s innovations have been taken up by the competition and are now a standard in the industry!

Today, the Scala Rider® line of products includes the most advanced devices available, ranging from solid-entry level products to the most feature-rich communication and entertainment systems.

The agreement with Kimpex is a major one, reaching more than 3 000 Canadian retailers. Cardo’s inventory is already available in Kimpex warehouses, which means that motorcycle enthusiasts can already purchase Scala Rider® products.
