The Varia™ RTL510 rearview radar from Garmin® helps cyclists stand out, day or night and on any ride

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Varia RTL510 rearview radar – an updated radar unit with a
sleek new design and enhanced safety features. Building upon the
first-generation cycling radar from Garmin, the RTL510 rearview radar
features improved visibility, detection of vehicles, battery life and
more to help keep cyclists safe no matter where, or when, they ride. The
Varia RTL510 rearview radar is being announced in conjunction with the
2018 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA, and can be seen at the Garmin
booth (#184).

“The Varia RTL510 rearview radar is just one of many products in the
Garmin ecosystem that’s aimed at increasing cycling awareness,” said Dan
Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “There’s a lot
that riders have to worry about when on the road, and one of the most
important things is their safety. Whether riding during the day or at
night, this radar is like having eyes in the back of their helmet,
helping to ease some of that anxiety by acting like an early warning

When paired with a dedicated radar display unit or compatible Garmin
device1, including the new Edge® 130 and Edge 520
Plus, cyclists will receive both visible and audible alerts warning them
of vehicles approaching from behind, up to 153 yards away. During a
daytime ride, the tail light can be seen up to a mile away and is
visible within a 220-degree range, making it easier for drivers to see a
cyclist before the radar sees the vehicle.

The new, vertical design of the Varia RTL510 rearview radar gives
cyclists better leg clearance and easily mounts to most road-use bikes,
including racing, touring and commuter styles. The Varia RTL510 rearview
radar features up to 15 hours of battery life in day flash mode, and 6
hours in night flash or solid mode. It has a suggested retail price of
$199.99. A bundle option, which includes the RTL510 rearview radar and
display unit, has a suggested retail price of $299.99.

The Varia RTL510 rearview radar is the latest innovation from the
ever-expanding Garmin fitness segment that develops technologies to
enhance and promote healthy and active lifestyles. Whether users are
runners, cyclists, swimmers, multi-sport athletes, or simply looking to
stay active throughout the day, there is a product that can help them
reach their health and fitness goals.

For decades, Garmin has pioneered new GPS navigation and wireless
devices and applications that are designed for people who live an active
lifestyle. Garmin serves five primary business units, including
