“Lezyne has continually impressed us with their clean styling and robust design since we first pocketed one of their brushed aluminum multi-tools. Lezyne Road Drive is no exception.”

Thanks Velo! We hope to keep on impressing others in the future!

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.

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.

Lezyne Scores Big in Cycling Weekly (UK) Magazine

Lezyne Scores Big in Cycling Weekly (UK) Magazine

Cycling Weekly (UK) Magazine’s Lights Roundup reviewed a number of different lights from different companies, including a couple from here at Lezyne. They got their hands on the Power Drive XL, Macro Drive, Micro Drive Rear, and Femto LED Front and Rear.

On the Macro Drive, “Output is excellent and the cutaways on the hood give great side visibility for commuters.” While they also gave some praise to the Micro Rear LED, “The light is rich, with a super-bright ‘daytime mode’ that works well, even in low winter sun.”

Oh and those red numbers below the lights? Those are an out-of-10 score, so it looks as though they really liked our lights.

“Lezyne Power Drive XL – Don’t be put off by the quoted runtime – Lezyne’s ‘Infinite Light’ system includes a spare rechargeable cell so there’s always a back-up. Output is excellent and the cutaways on the hood give great side visibility for commuters.”

“Lezyne Macro Drive – Solidly made and taking up very little space on the bar, the Macro Drive offers two flashing modes for town users and up to 300 lumens for the odd out-of-town excursion. Paired with the Power Drive XL as a helmet light, it’s phenomenal.”

“Lezyne Micro Drive – Available in black or silver, the Micro Drive is yet another classy product from Lezyne. The light is rich, with a super-bright ‘daytime mode’ that works well, even in low winter sun. The built-in USB dongle means no lost leads.”

“Lezyne Femto F+R – Small in size but big in output, these single-LED lights offer two types of fitting: a multi-position silicone rubber strap to fit any size of seatpost or a simple clip to attach to a rucksack. Disposable battery powered but massive runtime makes up for it.”

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.”
