Cardo PackTalk Bold Communication System

There’s much more you should be worrying about on the road than toying with electronic accessories. Cardo’s PackTalk Bold communication system is based on full voice control, so you’ll never have to take your attention away from anything than the road ahead while answering a call or communicating with up to 15 other riders around you.

“Hey Cardo” is all you need to say in order to activate the voice operation of the PackTalk Bold system. Connect wirelessly with a Bluetooth headset of any major brand, and let pressing buttons be a thing of the past. Cycle through your music, intercom, and phone features seamlessly, and enjoy automatic volume adjustments based on outside ambient noise. Simplify your life and enjoy more of what you love about riding a motorcycle.


Garmin Virb Ultra 30 Action Camera

There are a lot of action-camera options to choose from, which is a great thing for consumers. Look further than the brand name and focus on the features that speak to you most before spending your money. The Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 camera is one of the units that grabbed our attention after we learned about a few of its built-in elements.

To start, the Garmin Virb Ultra 3 camera offers voice control, which is huge for motorcyclists—the fewer gadgets you have to fidget with, the better. An optional Virb remote is also available for those who prefer easy button control. The Virb camera also features a 1.75-inch touchscreen display, which is very easy to use and helpful when you have a minute to adjust its settings before hitting the road. And since this is a Garmin device, there are some key GPS functions that shine bright, such as the camera’s ability to capture performance data like speed, elevation, heart rate, and G-force information that can be added to captured videos.
