I don't need it for listening to music, and it won't be a distraction; I simply want it so that in case work calls, I can answer, tell them I will call back in two minutes, and pull over somewhere safe so I can work remotely via laptop. Now I would like to know the easiest and most reliable kits that would work with that type of helmet (preferable not ugly looking or bulky either) and easy as possible to use. I also don't want it to affect the integrity of the helmet or dot/snell approval. Does anyone have suggestions for this?
I have been using in helmet blutooth pretty much since I started riding (I've had to be on call as well). I have had nothing but good experience with the Scala Q2 from Cardo, and I'm looking to upgrade to the Scala G9 soon.

The best place I've found to buy gear is MotorcycleGear.com...formerly NewEnough.com. They have great product info, tons of photos with people actually wearing the gear, great prices and selection, and they're awesome to work with if you need to make returns.

Even a helmet with speakers can serve the same purpose as a Bluetooth.

If your phone starts ringing, the music cuts out (or even if you leave the music off, you'll hear the tone). This could be a cheaper option than getting one with Bluetooth already in it.

It is very easy to install, and it comes with two mounting options:
1. Clip mount
2. Stick on mount

I have used both types, and they both work well.

Great, thanks a lot, really appreciate it. Rep'd.



Just checked the scala Q2 out, actually looks awesome. How do the speakers work, are they like earbuds? or can you mount them inside the sides of the helmet and they will work well? It looks like the mic straps onto the chin strap or wtv and the controller sticks on the side of the helmet which is nice. I really like it and it doesn't seem too expensive, definitely going to pick this up in the coming year!

I've found that buying gear from the dealer is a bad idea unless you're buying a bike and can corner them into cutting you a really good deal. My favorite place to buy gear is cycle gear. You can check them out at Cycle Gear - Motorcycle Gear and Motorcycle Accessories - Cycle Gear and see if you have a store close by.

Revzilla. I ordered my gear last night and the first item came this morning! I was surprised. Good prices but honestly I don't think gear with having gets that cheap.

Wow, do people stay upwind of you? I can't imagine wearing leather in the humidity here, I would get out of my jacket looking like I just got out of the shower. Unless you don't wear gear?
