Cycling Weekly Verdict

Lezyne's Micro Drive Pro 800XL has proved to be a solid and reliable performer. The power and beam pattern allows it to provide adequate light to enable you to ride at a fairly decent rate without feeling like you're being held back. It's packed with good features and great build quality and the price is brilliant. It does have a few too many light modes though.

A brand that offers an almost bewildering array of light options, many of which sit within a pretty narrow power bracket, the Lezyne Micro Drive Pro 800XL looks to provide one of the best power to price ratios on the market.
