Offical All Riders Communicator: Cardo Systems Packtalk Bold and Packtalk Slim
Why is the Cardo Systems Packtalk the Official Communicator of All RIders?
Well, because it is awesome. Whether in the Bold or Slim version (they are totally compatible and share the same software), the Packtalk is a communicator that does not disappoint. The Cardo Dynamic Mesh system is far superior to Bluetooth and allows up to fifteen riders to communicate at the same time, with a claimed file mile gap between the first and last riders. The connection distance is affected by landscape and congestion, but we have noticed a pretty good attainable distance between riders when multiple riders are connected, albeit maybe not a full five files. However, the DMC (Dynamic Mesh) lets you automatically reconnect when you get back into range if someone dropped off, which is a massive advantage over Bluetooth... where all involved have to simultaneously coordinate re-connection. The JBL sound system is also of great quality, although I found that the original non-JBL was almost if not just as good.
We have tested the Packtalks extensively. We use them exclusively for ride coordination on All Riders runs and rides, and I won't leave home without my Packtalk.
