Lezyne LED Front Light Femto
The Lezyne Femto is a lovely little light. It's so minimal it takes up hardly any room on your handlebars. It's little wonder that the Femto has become a favourite with road riders.
- Its 15 lumen output shines a beam immediately in front of you but this lamp is more about getting seen.
- Being a Lezyne, the Femto boasts a tough stylish, CNC-machined alloy body.
- High grade clear lens optics.
- This lens doubles as the lamp's button - easy to operate when wearing gloves.
- Its integral rubber strap makes the Lezyne Femto easy to fit - no tools required.
- Thanks to its integral rubber strap it's easier to swap this lamp between different bikes (no tools required) than it would be if you were obliged to remove and refit a conventional bolt-on lamp bracket.
- O-ring sealed to FL1 standard, the Femto is highly water resistant.
- It's tiny: 25mm diameter x 30mm.
- It's lightweight: 29g with strap.
- Options: constant beam or 4 flashing modes.
- Run times: 30h constant mode / 60h flash from a pair of CR2032 batteries (supplied)
- Trivia Note - as a homage to its small size, the Femto is named after a tiny electrical measurement measurement.
Lezyne was founded by Micki Kozuschek, who had previously made his name in his native Germany as a professional triathlete with an engineering background. He then moving to the USA where he founded Truvativ. This component manufacturer became so admired for the quality and strength of their cranks, SRAM gave Micki an offer he couldn't refuse so he sold Travativ to them in 2003.
After a sabbatical, Micki returned to manufacturing with the launch of Lezyne in 2007. His goal: to engineer quality accessories built to the same standards as the best bicycle components.
He insisted that anything with the Lezyne - Engineered Design logo had to be exquisitely designed, intelligently engineered and functionally complete.
To this end, Lezyne built their own HQ and test lab in California and opened their own factory in Taichung - a city which Micki regards as 'bike city Taiwan' in the way that Detroit was 'motor city USA' in the 1960s.
We discovered that quality control is king with Lezyne in 2008 when we received our first delivery of their original Alloy Drive Mini Pumps. One glance revealed that the pump's alloy piston and body were machined to perfection. Even more intriguing, the pump came with the best-made hosewe had ever seen. This robust but flexible rubber hose featured a machined threaded alloy Presta connector on one end and a Schrader connector on the other. Thanks to its secure connection, its valve-friendly design and its overall build quality, the Lezyne Alloy Drive was one of the best mini pumps we had ever tested. It also answered a real need if you were one of the fair few cyclists who never got on with push-fit pumps.
Since 2008, the variety of pumps Lezyne produce has grown and grown along with their equally well thought-out ranges of Lezyne bicycle tools, Lezyne bicycle bags and Lezyne bicycle lights.
To further ensure quality control, Lezyne sponsor a select group of cyclists including Cedric Gracia, Danny MacAskill and Remy Absalon. That way, you can be sure that if it's labelled Lezyne - Engineered Design, you can be sure that your pump, light or whatever will have been torture tested to the max.
