GARMIN THE OFFICIAL TECHNICAL TRAINING PARTNER TO THE CAPE TOWN CYCLE TOUR

Garmin Southern Africa, the global leader in GPS lifestyle technology, are proud to announce their partnership with Cape Town Cycle Tour 2017 for the third year running. As the Official Technical Training Partner, Garmin further demonstrates their commitment to the cycling market.

“Garmin are excited to be a part of this event for the 3rd year and to engage with our cycling community while exhibiting our Edge, Varia and Vector products that have been designed with cyclists in mind to provide navigation, premium training features, awareness and safety. These purpose-built devices are for cyclists on all levels whether it be touring, commuting, mountain biking, or for the on road professional,” said Jenna Chisnall, Marcomms Manager of Garmin Sub Saharan Africa.


Garmin’s Varia range of awareness products were developed with built in radar technology. The Varia Rearview Radar warns of vehicles approaching from behind for up to 140 meters and can work independently or wirelessly integrates with compatible Garmin Edge cycling computers. The Varia UT800 Smart Headlight projects further ahead as the cyclists speed increases or closer as a rider’s speed decreases and the Varia Vision attaches to the cyclists glasses to project the data fields onto the lens.


Garmin are seen as innovators in the cycling technology market with a wide range of products from GPS cycling computers, power meter pedals and radar technology products to improve cyclist safety and awareness on the roads. Garmin GPS cycle computers offer riders lightweight, compact race computers that give you the most comprehensive ride data, speed, cadence, time to mapping-compatible computers that mean you’ll never lose your way. When performance needs power, Garmin’s Vector pedal is a unique pedal-based power meter that measures total power output of the cyclist, measuring left and right balance and cadence.

The full ecosystem of cycling products as well as the latest and greatest in cycling technology will be showcased at the Cape Town Cycle Tour Expo. Garmin will be also offering all cyclists technical support for their cycling devices. The Cape Town Cycle Tour Expo is an opportunity for all sport enthusiasts and entrants to visit the Garmin stand and experience the latest technology available in cycling and be part of the exciting atmosphere leading up to the race.
