This kit requires a compatible BUP mount base.
The BUP RTL510-515 SL mount arm positions the radar horizontally for clearance below the mount point. There is no issue using the RTL510 or RTL515 Varia in this manner (Specialized bike racks with integrated Garmin radars do this). This add-on kit is ideal for bike racks that have reduced clearance over the rear tire or saddle setups with large saddle bags.
This add-on mount arm kit uses the standard quarter-turn connector used by all models of Varia radars except the RCT715 (See Garmin RCT715 kit). This kit includes everything needed to attach your RTL510 or RTL515 to our supported mount bases and includes a safety tether.
This component is intended for use with bicycles used on paved or relatively smooth unpaved surfaces. It can be used with electric bikes up to class 3. ASTM International standard F2043-13.
Features of the Garmin Varia RTL510/515 SL arm kit
Our quarter-turn inserts are the same as the Garmin OEM quarter-turn inserts. These inserts are thicker and harder to flex but unfortunately much more expensive to manufacture. That is why virtually all 3rd party computer and Varia mounts on the market use inexpensive inserts with two holes for flat head screws. They are thinner and more prone to failure.
|The 515 SL mount arm has integrated hooks to hold a strong rubber retention ring that prevents accidental release. The integrated tether hook attaches the entire arm to the bike to help mitigate loss in the event of a crash.|
|Because the Varia is mounted sideways, the center of gravity is well balanced and much less likely to pivot under loading. The horizontal layout allows the arm to be attached to bike racks even when the accessory mount is tucked under the rack.|
All BUP mounts are manufactured and hand assembled in the USA
