ABOUT THE GARMIN VARIA RADAR TAIL LIGHT This rearview radar with tail light pairs with your Edge® bike computer or compatible smartphone to alert you of vehicles approaching from behind. Varia™ RTL515 rearview radar provides visual and audible alerts for vehicles approaching from behind up to 140 metres away. When used with a compatible smartphone, Varia radar integrates with your favourite apps, such as Ride with GPS to overlay your maps with rearview radar alerts.

Varia™ RTL515 features multiple modes, including peloton mode, which provides a low-intensity flash that is kind to other cyclists’ eyes when riding in a group. This radar works seamlessly with your Edge bike computer or compatible smartphone as well as select Garmin wearables or the optional radar display unit. Time spent charging is not as good as time spent riding. Get up to 16 hours of battery life in day flash mode and up to 6 hours in solid mode. Easily mount this sleek, compact device on the seatpost of almost any road-use bicycle. The vertical design allows for better leg clearance and a perfectly comfortable ride.

    I've had the RTL515 for 18 months now and I would recommend it without hesitation. To counter the negative comments that are likely to come in:

    1) I agree that it is not a substitute for good road craft and common sense. It does however provide vital prior notice of a car approaching from way further than you can hear and see from a quick glance.
    2) I agree that it is not so useful if you are commuting in a city and are constantly surrounded by cars. In most other circumstances it provides a level of awareness that is hard to beat.
    3) Yes, it is not a deflector shield and will not protect you from direct attack. It does however give you plenty of time to react to approaching vehicles and you are much less likely to be "surprised" by the car that you didn't know was there

    I've ridden a few times without mine and it's very unnerving not to have the additional information provided.

    I was sceptical of this at first but took the chance. It was deffo worth the cash then IRC £150.
    Particularly as there are more and more electric cars on the road.

    I'm going to hold off and see how the new devices that have recently been released by competitors fare when it comes to real world use - the reviews look decent. Unfortunately there's no rush for me, a long standing knee injury means I've not been able to ride at all this year
    What ones are new?
