Lezyne has announced details of its new lights for the coming Winter, with everything from inexpensive safety lights to super-bright off road front lights

With the nights already starting to draw in, it’s the time of year for manufacturers to introduce their new lighting  ranges. Lezyne’s 2016 range includes a host of new options and there’s a general shift of shapes and upgrade in available lumens without any increase in price. All except the Femto – which remains unchanged this year – are rechargeable using either a direct USB plug or, for heavier models, a USB cable.

New Deca Drive emits up to 1500 lumens

The more expensive front lights used to come with a swappable battery, but this has been replaced in the new range by a built-in battery which saves weight and cost. The Old Mega Drive has been discontinued, with the new Deca Drive model actually pushing out more light than it, at 1500 lumens. It has three LEDs and is priced at £139.99. Next down is the £99.99 Super Drive, also with three LEDs, which emits 1200 Lumens on peak power.

Dropping down the range, the new Power Drive has two LEDs to emit 900 lumens, priced at £84.99 and the two LED range proceeds via the £59.99 600 lumen Macro Drive to the 400 lumen Micro Drive priced at £39.99.

Also new is the Strip front safety light. This is aimed at the “to be seen” market and comes with five LEDs with domed lenses to improve side visibility. It emits 120 lumens with a claimed battery life of 9.5 hours in the daytime flash mode.

Strip front and rear safety light set costs £54.99

There’s also a rear version of the Strip, also with five domed LEDs. There’s a 25 lumen version for £29.99 and a 100 lumen max output Pro version priced at £39.99.

Lezyne is promoting its front and rear light sets, with a 300 lumen Hecto Drive front light and Strip rear priced at £54.99, the same price as a Strip front and rear set. More details on Upgrade Bike’s website.

    Looks good. Ive got a lovely Trelock 950 front light but always been disappointed with rear lights. This could fit the bill. Will have a look for some youtube reviews.
