Bluetooth intercoms

Postby Lloyd » Fri May 01, 2015 3:38 pm

Howdy,

Those of you with kids will know that yelling helpful advice (throttle! brake! don't aim for the tree!) or having a softly spoken kid trying to tell you something when there's bikes and helmets involved is less than ideal, so I'm considering getting a bluetooth headset/intercom to save sanity and voiceboxes of both myself and my daughter.
I couldn't care less about the features of it - transmit and receive voice hands free, a mute button for when Daddy is getting annoyed at an obstacle he's trying, probably something dust proof and waterproof would do the trick. I couldn't care less about pairing it with a mobile or gps.

Does anyone here use one? If so, what brand, rough price, ease of use, are you happy with it, etc etc.

Thanks!

I've had an old Scala unit for a couple of years & only use it at State or Aussie C/ships but its a fantastic asset.
Also comes in handy if you want to point out something to your rider, like a rock has rolled into their line but you don't really want to advise all the following riders 8)

If you buy one make sure it comes with a Boom mike. (Arm to support mike) as many are now made for Full face helmets & the mike just velcro's into the front of the full face helmet. Not much use with an Open face Trials helmet.

Hope that helps ya a bit
