This year, the Lezyne KTV Drive commuter lightset has been redesigned, with a new format. This makes the front light more of a conventional shape than its predecessor, with a rubber band mount on the bottom of the unit attaching it to the bars.

The new format means that the light takes up a bit of bar space, although the light is still very compact. Maximum output is 70 lumens, with a claimed runtime of 1.5 hours. Drop down to 15 lumens constant output and you should get up to 5 hours run time.
