“Hey Cardo, ask my partner to marry me…”

One of Cardo’s most recent global customer surveys revealed that over 250 Cardo users had proposed over their Cardo - just 20 years ago, this wouldn’t have been possible, as motorcycle communication devices didn’t exist outside of motorcycle hand signals and shouting at each other at traffic lights.

Cardo launched the world’s first motorcycle Bluetooth-based wireless intercom headset and since then has been responsible for most of the industry’s innovations, including the first mesh-powered intercom, the first premium sound system by JBL, and the first voice-powered communications system.

With over 18,000* respondents from 114 different countries, a close look at the data showed there were a lot of similarities between the global #CardoFam…

Nearly 60% of respondents rode wearing a full-face helmet with flip-up and modular options being the second most popular types of helmets, and the majority rode with 1-5 riders in the group.

Leisure was the purpose of riding for those surveyed, passion and freedom were cited as the top choices as to the reason behind their rides - and for over half of those surveyed, riding helps to improve their mental state.

Over half of the respondents had used a communicator for three years or more and over 70% had chosen Cardo as their first-ever device.

Nearly half of those surveyed use their device to listen to music on a motorcycle, with 17% humming along, 44% singing occasionally, and 17% admitting they ‘perform’ in their helmets!

With answers from around the globe and riders all experiencing differing weather conditions, it was no surprise that the three most loved features of Cardo devices were: Sound by JBL, Waterproof, and Dynamic Mesh Connectivity.

When it comes to talking, ‘Family’ and ‘Spouse’ attributed to over half of the calls made by users, with ‘Friends’ making up just under 30%.
