Following LS2’s announcement of its adoption of the new Universal Communications Solution (UCS) standard in selected helmets during EICMA 2022 in Milan, the LS2 INTERCOM – LS24X powered by Cardo – is now available.
The LS24X has been specifically designed for seamless installation into the ECE 22.06 compliant VECTOR 2, ADVANT and INFINITY helmets, offering customers a choice of full face, convertible or open face with UCS-compatibility.
Offered as a factory-fit solution at time of purchase in dealerships; there will also be the option to add the unit post-purchase too later this year, depending on the individual’s preference.
The dedicated LS2 INTERCOM LS24X product, developed by Cardo Systems, connects up to four riders across Bluetooth, has a range of 1.2km/0.75 miles, features Sound by JBL, Natural Voice Operation, Open Bluetooth intercom (OBi) and is fully waterproof. The compact unit also boasts auto-reconnecting Bluetooth, so riders can ride their own ride without having to worry about connection issues.
Later this year, there are plans for LS2 INTERCOM pre-installed helmets to be released as well as carbon versions.
Shachar Harari, Vice President, Business Development at Cardo Systems, commented: “We are excited to collaborate with LS2 in delivering the best Bluetooth communication experience in the market.
