Varia Bike lights - more intelligent than regular bike lights

  • Varia products include intelligent headlights and taillights. If these taillights are coupled with Edge bike computers *, their lights adjust to the bicycle's speed and brightness can be adjusted according to the light conditions. With increasing speed, the light is thrown further forward, where you need it most. When the ambient light decreases or increases, the brightness of the headlights and taillights adjusts automatically when they are coupled with an Edge 1000 cycling computer with light detection.
