The world's first radar system for bicycles that warns of vehicles approaching from behind - from a distance of up to 140 metres. Can be used as a stand-alone device or connected wirelessly to compatible Edge bike computers¹. The Edge bike computer or the Varia display unit can detect multiple vehicles and indicates the distance and the appropriate security level. The intensity of the radar tail light is automatically increased to warn approaching vehicles that there is a cyclist in front of them.
rear-end collisions - one of the most frequent causes of accidents for cyclistsAccording to a study by the ADFC (Allgemeine Deutsche Fahrradclub - General German Cycling Club), nearly 79,000 accidents involving cyclists occurred in Germany in 2014,405 of which resulted in death. The most common cause of bicycle accidents is that cyclists are overlooked in road traffic. The Varia Bicycle Radar warns approaching vehicles and at the same time informs the cyclist in order to provide him/her with the necessary response time and to ensure safe participation in road traffic. The cyclist is no longer dependent on gaze or good hearing.
A breakthrough for safety on the bike.
The products of the Varia bicycle assistance devices also include intelligent Varia headlamps and taillights. When these tail lights are coupled to certain Edge bike computers, you increase cycling safety by adjusting the light spot according to the speed of the bike and the brightness according to the changed light conditions. With increasing speed, the light is thrown further forward where you need it most, with decreasing speed closer to the cyclist.
When the ambient light level decreases or increases, the brightness of the headlights and taillights automatically adjusts when coupled with an Edge 1000 bicycle computer with light detection.
