The folks at AKE Open link in a new window (read our extensive product review of AKE's Bluetooth communication hub, the PowerCom  Open link in a new window) have released an interesting portable Bluetooth communications hub, named the BlueCom 102 Pocket Repeater.

AKE BlueCom 102
The BlueCom 102 is a small device, running on batteries, that can be taken with you from motorcycle to motorcycle. The 102 weights 65 grams, and the lithium-ion battery will last 8 hours in operations mode (more in standby).

3rd Party Headsets Welcome


Now here's the interesting thing. Although AKE make their own Bluetooth Headset (the 101), the BlueCom 102 will work with almost any Bluetooth headset out there (e.g. Scala Rider, HelloBiker, CellularLine/Blueant/SuperTooth, etc, or motorcycle helmets with integrated Bluetooth, like Nolan N-Com, Dainese, Momo, Vemar or even BMW's ill-fated DCS). What's even better, is that it'll work with any combination of these headsets. In other words, if you have let's say a Scala Rider, and your pillion has a CellularLine Interphone, you can not only communicate together, but also listen to GPS, mobile phone, walkie-talkie and even music.

AKE BlueCom 102
The AKE BlueCom 102 uses the latest Bluetooth specification, class 2 version 1.2 (with a 20 meter range), while their 101 Headset uses version 2.0.

The control module is a combination of a full duplex star connector, repeater and signal mixer. It has two Bluetooth master interfaces for any Bluetooth helmet sets, an analogue input for 2-way radios or mobile phones and a further analogue input for audio signals (e.g. GPS, etc.).

There's one button per helmet set for all necessary adjustments, e.g. on/off, pairing, connecting, etc. This means that they can be made separately for each Bluetooth channel.


Audio is shared between both helmets, so your pillion can not only hear the GPS instruction, bike-to-bike discussion, but also the mobile phone.

You can purchase the complete set of BlueCom 102 and the 101 Headsets together, which means you'll not need to pair, since that's done at the factory.

Price: N/A
Availability. N/A

To our knowledge, this is the first time that a manufacturer allows you to interconnect different Bluetooth manufacturers.
