The Cardo PackTalk Edge is a quick-attach, DMC magnetic intercom headset for motorcyclists who want to stay connected with friends on the roads or trails.
The TWO most talked about features of the PackTalk Edge are, firstly, the Dynamic Meshwork Communication (DMC) which makes it so easy to connect (and reconnect, if a user is momentarily lost) up to 15 other Cardo users. Secondly, the air mount magnetic mounting - simply bring the PackTalk Edge near the mount and it will snap right on.
There is also the option for riders to create a private chat, thereby talking to only a few, or just one person, from their group. Riders can also mute themselves, and others, to have some alone time. If that's not enough, the PackTalk Edge offers voice control, glove-friendly roller controls, is waterproof, provides up to 13hr battery life, and displays clear high-quality music and audio thanks to JBL sound. Here's a breakdown of all the Cardo PackTalk Edge features...
