This sensor has your back
When out on a ride, you have to keep track of everything. What’s your route, how far you’re going, how fast and how hard you’re going to push it. But the most important thing to keep track of is your safety. And while having eyes in the back of your helmet might be a bit unrealistic, think of Varia as just that. This radar is like an early warning system that helps create safer cycling environments.
Safety in numbers
Varia™ RTL510 rear-view radar is just one part of cycling awareness. When paired with compatible Garmin devices the system helps to create safer riding conditions by alerting riders to vehicles approaching from behind. Green light? All good. Amber light? A vehicle is approaching. Red light? Take care — a vehicle is approaching at high speed. Ride safe.
