Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Lezyne Strip Drive Pro dishes out lots of lumens on its brightest daytime flash mode, but will also serve you well for night time riding and has a really long battery life in its lowest output mode. The rubber wings and band fastening keep the light firmly in place on a variety of seatposts. There’s a built in USB plug, although this can be awkward to fit into some computer USB ports.

The Lezyne Strip Drive Pro is the company’s highest output rear light. In its brightest daytime flashing mode, it’s good for 300 lumens. Lezyne quotes a three hour run time, which is about right; the light steps down to a lower output flashing mode before it expires.

But that’s not the only trick from the Strip Drive Pro, which has a total of 11 different output modes. There are three constant modes, giving up to a claimed 14.5 hours run time, six flashing modes and two daytime flashing modes. Even the less powerful day flash pushes out 150 lumens for a claimed 4.5 hours.
