Lezyne Goes Big With Mega Drive

Lezyne Goes Big With Mega Drive

Friedrichshafen, Germany – Today is a day the Lezyne crew has been working all year to bring the public – the day we launch the Mega Drive. This light represents the culmination of all that Lezyne has learned in development of the new Year 6 LED line.

The Mega Drive is an ultra high-powered, 1000 lumen, self-contained, performance LED light system. Constant Current electronics allow dual LEDs to emit light at a steady lumen output, producing more light over a longer period of time. The CNC-machined all-aluminum body can be opened to allow access to the replaceable battery pack (Infinite Light) and a standard USB charging port, like all of our rechargeable lights. The sculpted aluminum body is not just for show. The ribbed exterior actually serves as heat fins to maximize the efficiency of the LED light, and providing more light for your ride.

The Mega Drive has four standard modes: Enduro (500lm), Blast (1000lm), Economy (200lm), and Flash (200lm). To cater to the performance and endurance LED light users, the Mega Drive features Race Mode – an alternate power mode that switches between Blast (high) and Economy (low) modes with a single push of the power button.

The Mega Drive attaches to handlebars with the existing Composite Matrix hard mount (same clamp used on the existing Year 5 and new Year 6 XL LED lights), as well as a new CNC-machined aluminum hard mount. It is available as a standard (light, USB charging cable, CM handlebar mount) and loaded package (light, USB charging cable, AL handlebar mount, extra battery, CM storage box).

Mega Drive LED – Loaded Package

CNC-Machined aluminum handlebar hard mount 31.8mm (25.4mm also available separately).

Mega Drive spec summary:

  • Price: Standard $199.99 / Loaded $249.99
  • Enduro: 500Lm / 3hrs
  • Blast: 1000Lm / 1.5hrs
  • Economy: 200Lm / 7hrs

Lezyne Looking to Expand Distribution Following Eurobike

San Luis Obispo, CA – With the 2012 Eurobike tradeshow only a week away, Lezyne is finalizing preparations for the debute of the Year 6 (2013) product line, which includes the previously announced all-new LED Light line. Lezyne is also looking to expand its market reach at the show. “Lezyne products are sold worldwide in every major market, but there are still markets in which we do not have a presence,” says Ulrike Schlifske, Lezyne’s Global Sales Coordinator. “At Eurobike and Interbike, we hope to find new partners in these untouched markets.”

For those vendors interested in joining Lezyne’s international distribution team, please contact Mrs. Schlifske at sales@lezyne.com to arrange an appointment at Eurobike.

Lezyne Launches 2013 Line and Updated Website

San Luis Obispo, CA – With the Eurobike trade show fast approaching, Lezyne has launched its 2013 line along with an updated website. In stark contrast to the Year 5 website, our Year 6 site is built to focus on the beauty and “engineered design” of Lezyne products. The site has also been upgraded with other features to improve navigation, loading speeds, and multi-language capabilities. As for the 2013 line, it includes a completely redesigned and expanded LED light line, refined CO2 inflators, new bottle cages, hand pumps, and small bags/organizers.

The Year 6 LED Line

Our 2012 LED line represented the company’s inaugural year as a light manufacturer with the introduction of the extremely successful Mini Drive, Power Drive, and Super Drive LED lights. For 2013, we are using the knowledge acquired in 2012 and applying it to build a completely new LED line from the ground up. We have introduced four new models to suit a variety of riding applications.

The Mini Drive, Power Drive, and Super Drive LED lights became the XL line with an increase in lumen output for each model (200lm, 400lm, and 500lm respectively), new oversized aluminum and CNC machined bodies run cooler, reduce weight, and accommodate constant current electronics. The Intelligent Power Indicator has red and green LEDs built into the power button that allow the user to check power levels during use and recharging. The optics have been upgraded to one-piece MOR lenses which increases light transmission by 10%. The XL lights are USB rechargeable and feature Infinite Light. For more details about the XL line, go to our WEBSITE.

Our new commute oriented lights come in the form of the Macro Drive (front) and Micro Drive (front/rear) LED lights. These lights have CNC machined aluminum bodies, Composite Matrix end caps, and USB rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries (non-replaceable). The Macro Drive recharges via micro USB cable and the Micro Drive uses an integrated USB stick. The lights attach to the bike via snap-fit Composite Matrix mounts and multi-position rubber straps for easy installation and removal. The Macro Drive produces 300 lumens for 3hrs on Blast mode. The Micro Drive Front is compact, yet manages to produce 150 lumens for 2hrs on Blast mode while the Micro Drive Rear is a 30-lumen taillight designed with rider safety in mind. It is equipped with five modes: 2 solid, 3 flash, 1 ultra-bright daytime flash. If there is a question regarding the durability of these new lights, be sure to check out some of our (fun) product testing as shown in this video

More information about the Micro and Macro LED lights can be found HERE.

Our Femto Drive LED was actually the first of our 2013 line to be debuted back in April at the Sea Otter Classic. These super compact street lights (front 15lm / rear 7lm) feature a CNC machined aluminum body and Composite Matrix back plate that attach to the bike with a multi-position rubber strap. Extensive testing and complex lens seals have resulted in a safety light that is extremely water resistant. More information on the Femto Drive lights can be found HERE

All of the above LED lights will be available to buy from your local retailer by Fall of 2012.

For more details about Lezyne’s 2013 product line, please visit the Lezyne booth (B3-107) at the Eurobike tradeshow (8/29-9/1).

New Lezyne Femto LED Release at Sea Otter

Femto Drive

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

MONTEREY, CA—Tomorrow, the first day of the annual Sea Otter Classic, brings with it the launch of the all new Lezyne Femto Drive LED light. The Femto Drive is a small LED light, available in a Front (white) and Rear (red)  version as well as a front and rear pair. The front version pumps out 15 lumens of light while the rear puts out 7.* It is powered by a pair of replaceable CR2032 coin cell batteries that will be included. Lezyne’s marketing head Patrick Ribera-McKay had this to say about the Femto, “The Femto Drive LED is pretty small, but still manages to really pack a punch. The body is CNC-machined aluminum and super weather resistant. This light is going to be in service for much longer than other blinky lights, but it’s only going to cost $14.99.” The Femto Drive should be in stores this fall.

Lezyne will be launching other exciting new products at Sea Otter this year including some new side-loading bottle cages in Composite Matrix and carbon fiber versions, some new CO2 inflators, and some new color offerings. Be sure to stop by the booth at the show or to check out the photos and videos from the event that will be posted on the Lezyne Facebook page and website.

Lezyne will be hosting the “Lezyne Exploder” competition at their Sea Otter booth (718) this year. Competitors will race head-to-head to inflate inner tubes until they blow! The lucky chosen contestants will receive a prize for participating, but of course, winners will receive something special. More details can be found on Facebook here.
