With close passes a persistent problem, the Lezyne Laser Drive is designed to improve visibility and encourage a safer passing distance. As well as a standard rear light, the unit emits two beams of light along the road surface. Angled slightly outwards from the bike, they are designed to increase the chances of drivers noticing the rider and encourage them to pass at a wider distance.

The Lezyne Laser Drive also comes with a range of no less than nine different light modes, three constant with up to 40 lumens output and five flashing with the brightest giving a 250 lumen pulse.
