Product news

Lezyne launch new helmet mount

Lezyne have developed a new helmet mount for their lights, which has just gone into production and will be available from February. It combines an aluminium base with a composite pivoting cradle. A Velcro strap holds the mount to the helmet and a rubber pad on the underside provides grip and protection. It’s compatible with all their LED lights and will retail for £16.99 from UK distributors Upgrade Bikes. [Full details: Lezyne]

There was only one thing missing when we tested the Lezyne Super Drive 450 Lumen LED light last year, a helmet mount kit.

On its own it’s not really bright enough to be bar mounted but on the helmet, it’s the perfect partner to a more powerful main beam.

At the London Bike Show last week UK Lezyne distributor Upgrade Bikes had the first pre-production sample flown in from Lezyne’s HQ, and we got Rory Hitchens to tell us all about it.

The mount is made of a stamped and machined aluminum base and compression ring with a Composite Matrix spherical pivot cradle that holds the LED light. A long Velcro strap attaches the mount to the helmet and a rubber pad on the underside of the mount provides grip. The spherical pivot allows the user to adjust the position of the light in all directions.

The mount is compatible with all Lezyne LED lights and will retail for £16.99 and available from http://shop.upgradebikes.co.uk/Catalogue/Lights/Lezyne-Light-Spares

We tested the Super Drive last year, here’s reminder of how we got on:

Packing 450 Lumens, this is the brightest on offer, and with a price tag of £99.99, it’s immediately clear you’re getting a decent whack of illumination for little money (it is significantly cheaper, for example, than the Exposure Lights Joystick, which only manages 325 Lumens ).

Lezyne’s first entry into lights is a well priced, nicely designed and focused light that offers a surprisingly powerful beam. When the helmet mount is available it will make a useful second light to accompany a more powerful bar mounted light for the serious night riding enthusiasts, while for everyone else it’s the perfect way to get into night riding.
