Garmin Varia RTL510 Rearview Cycling Light

Experienced riders know that it’s not always what YOU can see up ahead that puts your life in danger on the road. With several cycling fatalities involving motor vehicles reported in the US annually, it’s critical to know what’s in front of you and behind you, as well as maintain peak visibility regardless if the time of day. Garmin’s Varia Light ecosystem —including bike lights and a traffic radar — helps you determine approaching traffic from both ahead and behind while keeping you illuminated and therefore more visible. The latest addition, the Varia RTL 510, improves your visibility, with an added sleek design that mounts easily to most road bikes.


  • RTL 510 features an improved tail light that increases daylight perception up to one mile away, so oncoming traffic sees you long before your radar detects them
  • A new sleek design ensures easier mounting to racing, touring and commuter-style road bikes
  • Get visible and audible alerts of approaching cars from up to 153 yards behind you
  • Real life is never 180 degrees straight. Using 3 built-in lights, RTL 510 offers 220 degrees of visibility for vehicles approaching from other directions
  • Opt for the bundle and get a compatible radar that now includes audio alert capability in addition to visual lights
  • Sync to your compatible Garmin device, such as the new Edge 130 or 520 Plus, replacing the need for a radar
  • Use up to 15 hours in flash mode or 6 hours in night flash mode before needing a charge


  • Up to 6 hours of battery life with solid mode, 6 hours on night flash & 15 hours on day flash
  • Weighs 2.5 oz
  • 3.9” x 0.8” x 1.6” (98.6mm x 19.7 mm x 39.6 mm) dimensions
  • 20 lumens on solid mode, 29 lumens on night flash & 65 lumens on day flash
  • ANT+ connectivity
  • IPX7 water rating
