I don't quite understand - are they using these for communication during the Race? Are these things compact enough, light enough, durable enough, and with a long-enough battery life to be effective?

I don't believe that helmet communicators are legal in races. Maybe for practice or testing, but racing is a no go- I thought.

Yeah, it's an odd promotion. They certainly don't use them during a race, although that could occasionally come in handy. And most racers barely ever ride on the street. Seems like a creative way to get someone to run a press release about them!

I didn't think so - that's what the Pit Board is for......

Now, Cardo can write in their ads that certain MotoGP riders own their product!
