For over half a century SHOEI has been crafting premium helmets and its products have achieved iconic status among riders world-wide. The cardo SHO-1 was custom-designed to offer SHOEI enthusiasts a communication system that meets the highest standards.
Just like your trusted SHOEI helmet, the new cardo SHO-1 is an extraordinary piece of equipment. With its unique and patented modular architecture, the SHO-1 integrates seamlessly with the SHOEI helmet design(1). On the inside, the SHO-1 houses the most advanced communication technology, including an unmatched plethora of features and functions. On the outside, it offers a streamlined and discreet appearance, including a replaceable battery for those extra-long-riding tours.
SHOEI riders will appreciate the voice-controlled operation of the cardo SHO-1. Not only will their hands remain on the handlebar for extra safety, but using the system also means natural and intuitive operation of this extremely feature-rich device. Among others, the cardo SHO-1 offers voice controlled intercom calls with up to 8 additional riders or 4-Way intercom conferencing within a 1.6 km(2) range.
And there is more: Riders can connect two mobile phones simultaneously and talk hands-free. Streaming stereo music from any Bluetooth® enabled smartphone or MP3 player is a breeze and so is the ability to receive in-the-ear navigation instructions from your GPS. With the built-in FM radio, you can also stay up-to-date with the latest traffic and weather reports from local radio stations.
The unique Cardo Community® web platform allows riders to invite fellow bikers for a ride, plan and join tours, and personalize the device settings to get the most out of your riding experience. When on the road, you can use Cardo’s exclusive SmartSet Android™ app (available free via Google Play(3)) to easily modify your SHO-1 settings from any Bluetooth® enabled Android device.
Lastly, the cardo SHO-1’s upgradable software(4) will ensure you remain at the forefront of technology.
