Your outdoor cycling can be a safer and more relaxed experience with Varia Smart Rearview Radar/Tail Light from Garmin. The device features multiple functions as a stand-alone or when connected to Edge systems. To make you noticeable from far away by other cyclists and motorists on the road, this tail light has bright red LEDs embedded into a smooth stylish black polycarbonate housing. Together they produce 16 lumens of red light that signals riders behind you that you are ahead. You have options to run the light in a constant-on or a flashing mode.
If you want to tap into more features, you need to connect it to a compatible Edge computer via a built-in ANT+ wireless radio. With this option, you can make full use of the backward-looking radar capability. This radar detects cars or trucks as far as 153 yards behind you. It alerts you about vehicles approaching from behind and signals them with bright red flashes that you are on the road ahead of them. This can be especially useful and life saving when other drivers are experiencing fatigue, or when it is dark and foggy outside. In addition, mounting two Varia taillights allows you to signal left or right turns.
To match various weather conditions suitable for cycling, the taillight is outfitted with a housing that can withstand those conditions. It is waterproof and rated IPX7, which even makes it resistant to a short complete immersion in water. Its construction is lightweight and compact enough to allow you to mount two of these taillights on your bike. To make this possible, each light is supplied with one seat-post quarter-turn mount and one multi-location quarter-turn mount. Also included is a micro-USB charging cable.
