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.

    Varia Smart Rearview Radar/Tail Light is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great unit It is a great unit to notify bikes all upcoming traffic behind via Garmin Edge computer, easy to setup. However, it requires to use with a smaller saddle bag or no saddle bag (unless seat post set to very high position) which limited service supplies to carry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations Still have a rear view mirror on bike but I look at edge 1000 screen to see if any vehicle is behind me. Vehicles show up way further back than I can see in my mirror because of road vibration. Not inexpensive but worth every penny for safety.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety first This thing works! So great riding on rural roads to get the alert that a car is approaching.
    Date published: 2016-02-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed Review -- Hard to fit... I am unable to use the provided seat post mount. My bikes have traditional level (not sloping) top tubes. As such, none have a lot of exposed seat post. I use a saddle/seat post bag to carry my spare (sew-up) tire and tools. When attaching the mount it cannot be lowered all the way because the unit mount is too close to the binder collar bolts on the seat post (binder bolts extend about 1/2). As such, the mount has to be installed about 1/2- 3/4 ABOVE the seat post clamp! As a result the saddle bag blocks the tail light completely. The unit is too wide to alternatively mount on a seat stay. And it cannot be mounted vertically or upside down, the instructions require horizontal mounting only. The only way I could get it to work is to fabricate my own mounting system. I had to purchase additional products from Tubus and K-Edge, plus use an extended brake bolt. Tubus makes a solid aluminum bar that mounts to the brake bridge. I was able to bend it so that the bar could accommodate their ( rack ) clamping attachment. It has a threaded insert that I was able to use to attach a K-Edge product that is intended for mounting a Garmin computer to a steerer stem. (It uses the same quarter-turn mounting system as the Radar). This provides a sturdy, non-vibrating connection that clears the height of the rear tire and the saddle bag. The unit works fine with my Edge 520, thought the audible approach notification is too low and can be missed on windy rides. Garmin would do well to consider making the whole monitor unit flash rapidly when traffic approached (as an attention getter) In addition, it would be nice to have a security hook similar to that used on the 520. On very bumpy surfaces it would be possible for the unit to get bumped and twisted off... you'd never know it was gone! I tried on three occasions to contact Garmin to see if they have any plans for an alternative mounting system .... something that would still mount to the seat post, but would drop lower than the current option. After three weeks, still no reply.
