VARIA REARVIEW RADAR
In the past, cyclists have relied on mirrors, listening and over-the-shoulder checks to detect oncoming cars, but each of these has its limitations and risks. Varia rearview bike radar detects vehicles approaching from a distance, giving you time to react to the threat. Not only does it alert the cyclist, it also alerts the car by increasing the intensity of the tail light beam as the car approaches.
The rearview bike radar system includes a radar tail light transmitter paired with a handlebar-mounted radar display unit or a compatible Edge®. The radar tail light transmitter (RTL 500) detects approaching vehicles from up to 140 meters (153 yards) behind and increases brightness as cars approach. When in flashing mode, it increases flashing intensity as well. The radar display unit (RDU) or compatible Edge cycling computer displays up to 8 vehicles as they approach, indicating increasing risk with a change in color. Customers can purchase the bundle version, or they can purchase the radar tail light separately and pair to a compatible Edge cycling computer.

The tail light brightens and blinks when approaching vehicles are detected for an extra measure of safety. Vehicles approaching from the rear is the number one cause of bike/vehicle fatalities in the U.S.
