Garmin® introduces the Varia™ UT800 high-intensity cycling headlight

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Varia UT800, a high-intensity cycling headlight for urban
and trail use. Helping to create a safer cycling environment, the Varia
UT800 not only projects a steady 800 lumens for up to 1.5 hours, it also
automatically adjusts its beam intensity to changing light conditions,
the cyclist’s speed and ride profile1 to extend battery life.

“As leaders in cycling technology, we are excited to introduce the Varia
UT800 to our line of innovative Varia cycling awareness products,” said
Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “With five
different light modes, whether riding on the streets or the trail, the
Varia UT800 smart headlight shines brighter for longer allowing cyclists
to ride with greater confidence.”

The Varia UT800 features five light modes – high, medium, low, night
flash and day flash. At full power, it is visible in daylight from more
than one mile away. Its low-profile, lightweight design easily attaches

When paired with compatible Edge® cycling computers, the Varia UT800
will automatically adjust its beam intensity based on speed and changing
light conditions, saving the highest intensity for when it’s needed the
most. With the simple touch of an Edge cycling computer or dedicated
remote, cyclists can also turn their lights on or off, control
brightness and more.

The Varia UT800 Urban Edition includes a universal out-front mount. The
Varia UT800 Trail Edition includes a helmet mount. Both are available
for $149.99.
