Garmin introduces the Varia UT800 high-intensity smart cycling headlight

Garmin Southern Africa 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 profilei
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 Camilla Kernes, Category Manager for Fitness
&Wellness. “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 1.6 kilometres away. Its low-profile, lightweight design
easily attaches to the handlebar with an out-front mount or to a helmet with a friction mountii
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 and will retail for R2 599.
