5 Years of Innovation

For the past ten years, Lezyne has been the pioneer for quality cycling accessories, with one of our specialties being LED bicycle lights. Since our first LED release five years ago, we have continued to push the limits on lumen output, battery life, and visibility; and Year 10 is no different. Still packed with innovative technologies—like MOR Lenses, Constant Lumens, weather resistance, and sleek CNC-machined aluminum bodies—our team of in-house engineers continue to push the boundaries of LED technology. Verified in our integrating sphere, our claimed lumens and runtime are accurate and consistent. Whether you’re commuting to work, shredding your local rock garden, or anything in-between, we have a light that’s right for YOU!

The Super Drive 1250XXL likes to play in the dark.

For Year 10, we took our night-riding powerhouse the Super Drive and added 50 lumens to its max output along with increased run times in every mode. Even with these updates, we still kept all of the proven features (CNC aluminum, enhanced programming and modes, and rugged mount) that set the Super apart from the competition. When the sun sets, grab your Super Drive and head out on your favorite ride.

Get lost with the Power Drive 1100XL.

One of the most exciting LED updates for this year is the revamp of our Power Drive model. The Power Drive packs an incredible 1100 lumen max output into an extremely compact, CNC aluminum design. Pair this with the innovative handlebar strap that fits both round and aero bars and the Power Drive makes a great choice for any application.

The Macro Drive 800XL is stunning day or night.

Another update for Year 10 is a revision of our award-winning Macro Drive. Expanding on one of our most popular lights, we kept the versatile strap mount and CNC aluminum construction but added an extra 200 lumens to the max output along with increasing the run times in both Enduro and Economy modes.

Micro Drive 450XL: small but powerful.

Small enough to throw in a jersey pocket or commuter bag, the Micro Drive is big on style and bigger on visibility. This year, we kept the compact design and light weight of the old Micro Drive, added 50 lumens to its max output, making it a great commuting option or getting lost at sunset.

Be a confident commuter with the Hecto Drive 350XL.

Another ultra-compact light in our line that we have updated for Year 10 is the Hecto Drive. We kept its simple, water-resistant, cable-free charging system and added 50 more lumens to its max output. Along with output increases, the Hecto Drive now has even longer run time in three of its seven modes.

Be seen from all angles with the KTV Drive Pair.

Perfectly suited for your next commute, the KTV Drive Pair (front and rear) offers high visibility in a small, lightweight package. For the new model we have a completely new design providing multiple mounting options, but kept it super-lightweight with cable-free.

Add visibility with the Femto Duo.

A new addition to our line for Year 10 is the Femto Duo. The Duo is a two-in-one (front and rear combo) safety light integrated into a versatile helmet mount. The LED’s are housed in a lightweight and durable machined aluminum body. The high-grade poly-carbonate lenses provide side visibility and double as the power button, making the Femto Duo extremely simple and compact.

BikeRadar Lists Macro Front and Micro Rear as Best Road Cycling Lights

The online cycling publication released a list of their favorite LED lights for road cycling, whether for urban or commuting use. The Lezyne Macro Drive (Front) and Micro Drive (Rear) made the cut! The Lezyne Macro Drive features a lightweight and sturdy CNC-machined aluminum body with a Side Visibility design that allows 180 degrees of visibility and increases user safety. Constant Lumens power management drives the LED at a bright 400 lumens, and the Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level at any time. The Side Visibility Cuts allow for 180 degrees of visibility, especially from the side. The Li-ion battery (non-replaceable) is recharged either with a fast, high efficiency, 2 Amp charging with a compatible wall adaptor, or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The Overdrive Race Mode allows quick switching between Overdrive and Economy, depending on the occasion. The Composite Matrix back cap design conceals the USB port for recharging the battery. This unobtrusive light attaches to a wide range of handlebar sizes using a snap-fit Composite Matrix mount that is secured with a multi-position, silicon rubber strap for tool-less installation. It is available as a single front LED or as a front/rear pair with the Micro Drive Rear, or with the Zecto Drive Rear. The Lezyne Micro Drive Rear provides a high-visibility 70-lumen Daytime Flash mode. Constant Lumens power management drives the LED at a steady output, and also features an Intelligent Power Indicator button and a Side Visibility Design. The body is made CNC-machined aluminum. The light easily attaches to a wide range of round seatpost diameters via a snap-fit Composite Matrix mount, with a multi-position silicon rubber strap for tool-less installation. The dedicated rear mount points upward to ensure light is directed straight back. It is available as a single rear LED, or as 2 different front/rear pairs (Micro Drive Front/Rear, or Macro Drive Front/Micro Drive Rear).

Macro Drive LED Review by Road.cc

Road.cc recently reviewed our Macro Drive LED light and impressed the critics on its road and country capabilities.

“Performance out on the road is pretty impressive, better than I expected to be perfectly honest as the single LED chucks out a good spread of light. On unlit country lanes you get a decent amount of light from the front of your tyre which then increases in intensity right up to the main spot, a good ten to twelve feet ahead depending on how you’ve got it set up on the bars obviously.”

The final verdict? A 4-out-of-5 star rating with the nod of “top performing city commuter light with a beam capable of lighting up the country lanes for a good price!”

Lezyne Gets Big Praise from Women’s Cycling Magazine

Lezyne Gets Big Praise from Women’s Cycling Magazine

Lezyne LED lights got some big recognition from Women’s Cycling magazine in the UK, naming our Macro Drive Front the ‘Best Road Light,’ our Femto Drive the ‘Best Emergency Light,’ and our Micro Drive Rear the ‘Best Rear Light.’ Not to mention a good review of our Zecto Drive LED Pair. 

With a spate of cycling deaths on the London streets, we remind everyone to please be safe when cycling in any setting.

Lezyne Macro Drive

The Lezyne Macro Drive

“This is a great light. It has clean lines. It’s plenty bright. I recommend it highly.

 The dimensions (length about the same as a crispy chocolate & rice bar, or 1020000000 angstrom), weight (4 grams more than two bars), and candle power (far more birthdays than I’ll ever see) all fall within acceptable parameters. Useful details, should you require actual hard data despite my unreserved recommendation, can be found on the full road.cc review. The purpose of my writeup is to provide supplementary information.”

Macro Drive Review by RCUK

“The Lezyne Macro Drive is the bigger, brighter brother of the Micro Drive.

The body is a longer version of the neat, CNC machined aluminium cylinder we first encountered on the aforesaid Micro Drive. Further similarities include the Maximum Optical Reflection (MOR) lens, intended to produce a beam that is wide, smooth, and bright, an LED, and a button mounted on top of the cylinder that changes colour to indicate the remaining charge.”
