MTBR Reviews the Lezyne Deca Drive

Online publication MTBR (Mountain Bike Review) had some great things to say about our popular Deca Drive LED light (900 lumens version). This light is designed with a sleek CNC-sculpted aluminum body in a compact, self-contained configuration. It features Constant Lumens power management that drives three LEDs. Overdrive Race Mode makes it possible for quick switching between Overdrive and Economy, and its Infinite Light design allows for on-demand battery replacement. The Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level any time. It is recharged either with fast, high efficiency, 2 Amp recharging with a compatible wall adaptor, or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The Deca Drive’s Composite Matrix hard mounts secure the light to 31.8 mm and 25.4 mm handlebars. It is also available in the Fully Loaded package with aluminum handlebar mounts (31.8mm and 25.4mm), a spare battery pack, a Micro USB charging cable, and CM storage case.

“The Deca Drive is Lezyne’s follow-on to the Mega Drive of last year. It measures almost 900 Lumens and is only 100 Lumens weaker than last year’s Mega Drive. But it is $50 cheaper and that makes this a terrific value. Furthermore, the edges have been smoothed out with some white powdercoating.”

Bikeradar Lists Lezyne in Friday Five-a-side for Best New Gear

Every Friday, Bikeradar rounds up the best gear in mountain and road biking. This week, the online cycling publication listed Lezyne amongst Bontrager, Moots, Performance, Reynolds, and more, featuring our Deca Drive, Macro Duo, and KTV line (front, rear and Pro).

“Headlining our recent shipment of test samples is the new Deca Drive with up to 900 (claimed) lumens of output via three LED emitters. Stated run time at the highest setting is a modest 1 1/2 hours (or up to 21 hours on the longest-lasting flashing mode) with convenient recharging via a micro-USB cable in as little as six hours. The Li-ion battery can also be easily swapped out for a fresh pack (optional) if you want to head out for longer rides, too.”

“Commuters looking for a convenient helmet-mounted all-in-one combo light can check out the Macro Drive Duo, which features a 400-lumen claimed output up front coupled with a five-lumen red LED out back – all neatly tucked together in the same aluminum case. Cutouts at the front of the body add some side visibility as well. Claimed run is the same 1 1/2 hours as the Deca Drive but in this case, the non-swappable battery will recharge via the built-in micro-USB port in just three hours.”

“The KTV Drive Pro front-only light is the brightest safety option with 70 claimed lumens, and the clever mounting system can be used on handlebars or clothing. Pop off the rear cap and there’s a USB plug built into the body so you can plug it right into your computer for handy recharging. Claimed run time is one hour at the highest setting or up to six hours in certain flashing modes. Alternatively, the standard KTV – offered in both front and rear varieties – puts out a more modest 15 lumens (claimed) with 180-degree visibility thanks to a curved lens shape. Like the KTV Pro, the standard KTV’s mount can easily be used on seatposts and handlebars or clipped on to clothing, and the built-in USB stick makes for easy recharging. Claimed run time is 4 1/2 to 9 1/2 hours depending on mode.”

The Canadian publication had some great things to say about our Deca Drive, touting its sufficient brightness for commuting on the road. The Lezyne Deca Drive is designed with a sleek CNC-sculpted aluminum body in a compact, self-contained configuration. It features Constant Lumens power management that drives three LEDs at a steady and bright 900 lm. Overdrive Race Mode makes it possible for quick switching between Overdrive and Economy, and its Infinite Light design allows for on-demand battery replacement. The Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level any time. It is recharged either with fast, high efficiency, 2 Amp recharging with a compatible wall adaptor, or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The Deca Drive’s Composite Matrix hard mounts secure the light to 31.8 mm and 25.4 mm handlebars. It is also available in the Fully Loaded package with aluminum handlebar mounts (31.8mm and 25.4mm), a spare battery pack, a Micro USB charging cable, and CM storage case.

“Out of the box, the Deca Drive oozes with typical Lezyne quality and attention to detail. The light is housed in a CNC’d aluminum shell and offers well thought out features like metal hinges and a sealed battery port. The battery port also doubles as a home for the USB charger connection. The light shroud has cooling fins machined into it which help keep temperatures down; and with three LEDs being powered to a max 800 lumen it can get pretty warm. Included in the box is a spare battery, two sizes of handlebar mounts (31.8mm and 25.4), and a micro USB charging cable.”

Bike Radar Reviews the Deca Drive

Lezyne’s Deca Drive doesn’t disappoint the judges for Bike Radar, scoring a 4-out-of-5 stars and getting some big praise in this review! 

“The Deca Drive is designed for road cyclists, but it also has the power to handle unlit paths and dark lanes. The unit is self-contained, which is rare for a long-running light this powerful.” Get a look at the full article here.

RCUK Takes Their First Look at the Deca Drive

RCUK Takes Their First Look at the Deca Drive

RCUK just got a hold of our new Deca Drive LED with the Loaded Kit and will be putting it through its paces over the coming weeks. Here is a little bit of what RCUK had to say upon opening the box.

“The most immediately obvious facet of the Deca Drive is more prosaic. It’s a very solid, CNC-machined aluminum unit… and tipping the scales at 160g unladen.”

“The power is converted to illumination via three LEDs, secured behind Leyzne’s Maximum Optimal Reflection lens, intended to produce a smoother and brighter beam by optimizing use of the generated light. This will be the area of greatest interest when the testing begins, of course.”

We are looking forward to the full review and will be sure to share it with you as soon as RCUK posts the report.
