Breaking Boundaries: Two Decades Of Innovation With Cardo SystemsAs well as reaching new standards, Cardo has invested in the resources required to surpass them even further. Cardo’s acquisition of RISER – the ultimate motorcycle all-in-one community platform – and establishment of its own dedicated Sound Labs in Straubing, Germany, mark significant strides towards enhancing and enriching the user experience further.

Reflecting on the company’s remarkable journey to date, Alon Lumbroso, CEO of Cardo Systems, comments: “From what started as a ‘simple’ idea, to pioneering an entire industry and becoming a global leader selling in over 100 countries is remarkable. 

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our fantastic community, dedicated employees across the globe and strategic partners who have – and continue – to contribute to the success of Cardo and make it the brand it is today.” 

Expanding on the brand’s knowledge and experience in the motorcycle market, Cardo’s commitment to innovation has driven its expansion beyond the boundaries and into new industries, to introduce product ranges to create communication solutions for ‘groups in motion’. In 2020, Cardo launched the first Outdoor Mesh Communicator with the introduction of the PACKTALK Ski and has since brought specialised products for outdoor pursuits to the market and as a result, has welcomed diverse use applications to the portfolio.

Building on its rich history of breaking boundaries, Cardo Systems is committed to continuing to shape the future of communication technology. Be part of the journey and join the #CardoFam.
