Lezyne's Power Drive XL recently scored a 7/10 from Road.cc
"The Lezyne Power Drive XL front light provides plenty of light for urban and suburban riding and makes a good helmet-mounted secondary light for occasional green lane action. It's neatly machined with plenty of nice touches."

Lezyne LED lights got some big recognition from Women's Cycling magazine in the UK, naming our Macro Drive Front the 'Best Road Light,' our Femto Drive the 'Best Emergency Light,' and our Micro Drive Rear the 'Best Rear Light.' Not to mention a good review of our Zecto Drive LED Pair.
With a spate of cycling deaths on the London streets, we remind everyone to please be safe when cycling in any setting.
Cyclist No.1 recently reviewed our Zecto Drive LED lights and liked what they saw. So much that they gave us a 4-out-of-5 star verdict.

Lezyne helped Rudolph make an upgrade this Christmas, and we can do the same for your Christmas shopping! We have a lot of good stuff that should be on every cyclists Christmas list this year, but we decided to make things a little bit easier for you and make a list of our 'must-have' items for this holiday season:
Mega Drive – $199.99
With 1200 lumens, replaceable battery and USB recharging, this light is able to cut through the early winter nights so that you can ride at any time. Make sure you point it down the road, because this thing can be pretty blinding! Get it by itself or in our Loaded Box Kit.
Super Drive Loaded – $154.99
You know what’s better than getting a 575 lumen Super Drive XL? Getting it Loaded with a Composite Matrix (CM) handlebar mounts, a CM helmet mount, a spare battery pack, a Micro USB charging cable, and CM storage case. That’s a lot to be putting under the tree.
CNC Digital Floor Drive – $129.99
Our classic CNC machined aluminum floor drive with a little something new on it, our super precise, easy-to-use Digital Gauge. Accurate to 300psi and able to work on Presta and Schrader valves, this is definitely something every cyclist should have on their Christmas List.

Micro Drive Pair – $89.99
Two presents are definitely better than one, so why go for deciding on the 200 lumen Micro Front ‘OR’ the 70 lumen Micro Rear when you could go for ‘AND.’ With the new Daytime flash mode for our performance lights, these guys will keep you seen and safe during any time of the cold winter days.
Alloy Drive Hand Pump – $44.99

SV-7 – $24.99
Another incredible stocking stuffer, this compact tool includes CNC machined aluminum body with stainless steel tool bits. Can fit into your pocket to take with you anywhere to always know you can become a handyman at any given moment.
Femto Front – $14.99
Small, bright, and available in multiple colors, you would have sworn they were Christmas lights. Work just as well hanging from the tree as they do on the handlebar of your bike, lighting your way with three different flash modes and super bright blast mode.

Caddy Sack – $9.99
Simple, reusable bag that can be used to carry all necessities on your ride; including your beloved phone. Available in two different sizes and built in with a water-proof system to keep your items dry in the cold, snowy weather.
These are just some of our suggestions to make this Christmas even better for that cycler on your list. Happy Holidays to everyone from the Lezyne team and happy shopping!
With a ranking of 7/10 by Cycling Active magazine, Lezyne's Stainless 12 Multi-Tool was in some good company when it was ranked as one of the "7 of the Best Multi-Tools" in their January Issue.
"…exceptionally well-made tool. The construction feels almost industrial but is very well thought out and comfortable to use. Pieces are well spaced and easy to access, which makes a nice change. As the saying goes though: ‘buy cheap, buy twice’ and with this, you probably won't need to buy another multi-tool for a decade."
Active.com has our Power Drive XL Loaded Kit as a part of their 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.
"The wintertime means less light on the road. If your significant other rides in the early-morning or evening hours, a good list is a must to stay safe." We couldn't agree more, and the Power Drive XL is the perfect light to get your cycling-obsessed significant other.
Singletrack has featured our 3-way Wrench and Port-a-Shop tool kit in their Fresh Goods Friday, featuring "Another week and another drop of fresh product for putting through the paces."

With winter fast approaching, Mike Cotty from RoadCyclingUK.com explains how to plan the perfect base training ride.
The UK had a bit of fun with the CityCross event. Lezyne and Upgrade Bikes were present at the event and provided prizes and goodies for the riders! This was the second year for the event and they are currently searching for a venue for the third.
RCUK just got a hold of our new Deca Drive LED with the Loaded Kit and will be putting it through its paces over the coming weeks. Here is a little bit of what RCUK had to say upon opening the box.
"The most immediately obvious facet of the Deca Drive is more prosaic. It’s a very solid, CNC-machined aluminum unit… and tipping the scales at 160g unladen."
"The power is converted to illumination via three LEDs, secured behind Leyzne’s Maximum Optimal Reflection lens, intended to produce a smoother and brighter beam by optimizing use of the generated light. This will be the area of greatest interest when the testing begins, of course."
We are looking forward to the full review and will be sure to share it with you as soon as RCUK posts the report.

Cycling Weekly (UK) Magazine's Lights Roundup reviewed a number of different lights from different companies, including a couple from here at Lezyne. They got their hands on the Power Drive XL, Macro Drive, Micro Drive Rear, and Femto LED Front and Rear.
On the Macro Drive, "Output is excellent and the cutaways on the hood give great side visibility for commuters." While they also gave some praise to the Micro Rear LED, "The light is rich, with a super-bright 'daytime mode' that works well, even in low winter sun."
Oh and those red numbers below the lights? Those are an out-of-10 score, so it looks as though they really liked our lights.
"Lezyne Power Drive XL – Don't be put off by the quoted runtime - Lezyne's 'Infinite Light' system includes a spare rechargeable cell so there's always a back-up. Output is excellent and the cutaways on the hood give great side visibility for commuters."
"Lezyne Macro Drive – Solidly made and taking up very little space on the bar, the Macro Drive offers two flashing modes for town users and up to 300 lumens for the odd out-of-town excursion. Paired with the Power Drive XL as a helmet light, it's phenomenal."
"Lezyne Micro Drive – Available in black or silver, the Micro Drive is yet another classy product from Lezyne. The light is rich, with a super-bright 'daytime mode' that works well, even in low winter sun. The built-in USB dongle means no lost leads."
"Lezyne Femto F+R – Small in size but big in output, these single-LED lights offer two types of fitting: a multi-position silicone rubber strap to fit any size of seatpost or a simple clip to attach to a rucksack. Disposable battery powered but massive runtime makes up for it."
" This fall I picked up the Lezyne Super Drive XL light for riding at night. It is an amazing light in both brightness and build quality. But then I saw the Lezyne Mega Drive which has 1000 lumens. If 500 lumens was great, what would 1000 be like? Awesome is what it is like."
Awesome is how we like to describe it, too.
