    Features of the RCT715 Mount Arm

    BUP RCT715 arm assembly

    We used the patented Garmin OEM seatpost latch connector 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
