The primary benefits of the H.A.R.D. System V are:
1. No Wires between the Rider and
the Motorcycle - H.A.R.D. utilizes
wireless transmission for critical data: the radar detector
warning alert. This eliminates the need to have a clumsy
earpiece and avoids tangled wires.
No Modifications to Helmet or Radar Detector - The H.A.R.D. transmitter simply plugs into your radar detector and the receiver
is easily placed inside your cheek pad or can be mounted on the
outside of your helmet. This allows for quick and easy installation
with no tools needed for installation.
Clean and Simple Design – The H.A.R.D. System V is nearly invisible to others. The transmitter
and receiver are small in size avoiding the risk of being seen
by the people giving you tickets (no need to give them another
reason for not letting you out of a ticket).
Same Benefits as Sophisticated Military Heads Up Display -
Heads Up Displays allow pilots to keep their eyes on their
target. H.A.R.D. allows you to keep your
eyes on the road without having to look down and try to see
the radar detector alerting you of a radar threat. H.A.R.D. also
alerts you wherever your eyes are looking. Whether in a curve
or looking at the scenery, you will immediately know when
your radar detector is providing an alert.
Designed for Motorcycling Conditions - H.A.R.D. provides
a visual alert overcoming road noise, music players and
One Radar Detector for all Vehicles – H.A.R.D. is an accessory for existing radar detectors. No need to buy
a separate radar detector for your bike. If you are already
using an Adaptiv, Beltronics, Escort, or Valentine radar detector, simply
take the detector from your other vehicle and use it on your
7. Compatible with Leading Radar Detectors – The H.A.R.D. System V is compatible with the following detectors (when using an approved factory power cord): Beltronics Sti Driver, RX65, RX55, and the V995; Escort Max, RedLine, 9500ix, 9500i, 8500 X50, 8500, 7500S, 7500, 6800, Solo S3 and Solo S2 (Escort Direct Wire Cord option required); all Valentine One models without requiring the Remote Audio Device.
8. Stand-alone System - Since the H.A.R.D. System V
is self-contained, you
have to worry about changing your current way of riding. This
means no need to re-wire your bike or change your
H.A.R.D. System V is made up of two components:
a transmitter and a receiver.
The transmitter has a six-inch power cord
with a male RJ11 jack on the end. This cord plugs into the
female RJ11 power jack located on the radar detector. These
male and female RJ11 jacks look like those used on telephone
systems. The H.A.R.D. System V transmitter has
a female RJ11 jack that the detector power cord plugs into.
A green light on the transmitter indicates
when the transmitter is sending
a signal to the receiver. Total installation
time for the
transmitter is less than 10 seconds as it
simply plugs ‘in-line’ with
the existing detector wiring. Click

transmitter plugged into radar detectors.
The receiver is a miniature, battery operated
device that can be attached to the
outside of the helmet. Just like a cell phone, the receiver has
an on / off switch to maximize battery life. The receiver has
a cord with the red LED warning light located at the end. This
allows the small red LED warning light to be placed any where
inside your peripheral vision. We refer to the red LED warning
light as the ‘business
end' of the receiver. Click
