This kit uses the standard OEM seat post mount latch connector (not included) that comes with the Varia RCT715. By removing just two screws, the stock connector can be moved from the seatpost to the back of the saddle for greater visibility and range.  This kit includes a safety tether that wraps around saddle and the RCT715 post.  By design, even when partially unlatched, the RCT715 cannot fall out of the OEM connector.  The latch must be fully disengaged to remove the RCT715.  Because of this, even if the latch is accidentally released, the tether will stay engaged between the post and the latch.

    Features of the RCT715 Mount Arm

    BUP RCT715 arm assembly

    We used the patented Garmin OEM seatpost latch connector (not included) as the basis for this mount arm. Using the included Torx screwdriver, simply separate the latch assembly from the seatpost mount plate and re-attach it to the BUP mount arm.

    The back plate isn't just for looks, it performs two important functions. First, it helps to create a pocket of smooth airflow around the Varia that reduces drag. Second, it prevents the OEM mount screws from loosening and falling out which would separate the latch connector from the mount. BUP RCT715 back plate
    Safety tether with arm The included safety tether is attached between the Varia and the OEM latch connector. Even if the connector is not latched, the Varia will remain attached to the connector. In the unfortunate event there is a crash or impact that snaps the arm or mount off of the bike, the tether will keep the Varia attached to the bike via the connector.

    All BUP mounts are manufactured and hand assembled in the USA

    BUP Shark Tooth (ST)

    What makes the Shark Tooth design different?

    • ST Mounts use toothed connections to prevent slipping.
    • Connections are very rugged and more than 3x thicker than GoPro type connections.
    • Very easy to assemble using the provided thread locking screws.
    • Eliminates the variations in GoPro like slot fitments for a more secure connection.

    |---- Space ----|

    • Our mounts move the device down and rearward to increase spacing.
    • Bup mount positioning creates more leg over clearance for easier mounts and dismounts.
    • Leaves more than enough room for most small/medium and even some large bags.
    • Optional extensions can provide even more space when needed!

    Safety is not an afterthought

    • Safety band prevents twist out release from impacts, aggressive riding, opportunistic theft, and accidents.
    • Safety bands will not interfere with, or mute, radar range or operation.
    • New elastic safety tethers are thin and exactly the same as the Garmin OEM computer tether.
    • Heavy duty safety tethers are provided with kits for heavier devices such as a GoPro or Garmin Varia RCT715.

    Shark Tooth Grip

    One huge benefit of the new Shark tooth design is preventing device rotation. Standard action camera connectors typically suffer from rotation under loading which requires overtightening the screw to overcome the rotation. Overtightening can eventually lead to damage or failure.

    ST mounts use just one thread locking screw for easy assembly. Just tighten normally and it is locked in place. Easy peasy.

    Have Your Cake And Eat It Too

    Radar and a GOOD camera? Yes please! Extra room for big saddle bags? Yes please! Pick one or the other? Nope! Bup horizontal mount arms provide a huge amount of space below the saddle AND the option to run two devices at once!

    Compatibility

    Besides being able to use all major brands of radars, our ST mount arms can be converted from one brand's radar to another. Switching between Garmin Varia and Magene require nothing more than unscrewing the insert and moving a few plugs. Conversion from Garmin or Magene to Bryton (or vice versa) is almost as easy with an extra insert (sold separately).

    Quality

    Our mounts bases and arms are 3D printed with state-of the-art bioplastic materials using the most technologically advanced machines in the world. Even small injection molded items, such as the quarter-turn inserts, are top-of-the-line and as good or better than the OEM part.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Our mounts are made from a new state-of-the-art material called bio-plastic that is derived from plants instead of petroleum. It is stronger than traditional plastic and able to withstand repeated impacts better. Some components are made from injection molded plastic or steel.

    We source all raw materials, manufacture the primary components, assemble, and package the products in the United States. Some accessory items or minor components are imported (noted in the product details).

    We currently ship within the U.S., most U.S. territories, and Canada. Please see the international shipping page for more details.
