Riser launches biggest update yet in collaboration with Cardo Systems

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- RISER, the ultimate motorcycle all-in-one community platform, designed to connect riders worldwide and provide the best routes to explore, is launching its biggest ever update, following its acquisition by Cardo Systems earlier this year.

Set to go live on November 20, the #RISERnextgen will be the platform's most significant update ever, bringing new and improved free features, as well as great additions and updates to the paid 'Pro' version.

  • Route planning with waypoints (available via the web & app)
  • Ability to skip waypoints and new roundtrip options
  • Updated cross-platform trip sharing (WhatsApp, Instagram etc.)
  • New local challenges
  • Load planned routes by simply scanning a QR code

For Pro users, the updates go even further, bringing all the free features, but adding greater flexibility and the ability to customize the user experience even more so, including:

  • Enhanced usability and functionality to share routes outside of RISER
  • All new ReWind functionality to relive your trips via an interactive 3D map
  • Route Planner with 3D mode Enhanced Supercurvy routing engine
  • PackRide – connected riding with improved connectivity, unique to RISER
  • GPX-Export functionality

Dominik Koffu, Founder and Product Manager of RISER, comments, "Following the merger with Cardo Systems at the end of May, our team has been working hard to change up a gear to make RISER the definitive motorcycle community platform globally. The benefits of this merger have meant that we have much more experience and data to learn from across both brands, and as a result we are able to offer far more to both users of the free and Pro versions of RISER."

"This update marks a significant milestone in the evolution of RISER. The latest updates will elevate the users experience in the App, before, during and after the ride, making RISER a community that every rider wants to be part of."
