Lezyne Zecto Drive Front Light
The USB-rechargeable Zecto Drive Front Light is stylish, solidly built and highly effective, as we have come to expect from Lezyne.
As well as ensuring it gets you seen at night, the Lezyne Zecto Drive also features an intelligent daylight flash mode, which is bright enough (120 lumen) to confer real presence on daytime rides.
The Lezyne Zecto Drive Front Light is primarily designed to get you seen. Although the Lezyne Zecto Drive Front Light might not throw the intense beam you'd want for extensive night riding beyond the city limits, it does offer enough illumination to help see your way home if you take a quick shortcut along, say, an unlit urban canal path.
- Its three high-intensity LEDs are mounted in Lezyne's custom MOR (Maximum Optical Reflection) lens to produce a wide, bright beam.
- Its side LEDs don’t just confer 180 degree visibility (so you'll get seen by traffic approaching from the sides) they also double as charge/power indicators.
- The built-in Lithium Polymer USB-rechargeable battery makes the Lezyne Zecto Drive Front economical to run.
- Supplied with lightweight, portable USB cable.
- Lezyne's robust Hipster rubber strap makes it especially easy to fit and remove the light and switch it between bikes.
- Alternatively, you can strap the Lezyne Zecto Drive to a belt or bag.
- Super neat 40 x 40 x 35mm dimensions.
- Only 40mm diameter, the Lezyne Zecto Drive takes up hardly any handlebar space.
- Constant Run Times: 3 hours on 60 lumen blast mode, 5 hours on 30 lumen enduro mode, 10 hours on 15 lumen economy mode.
- Flashing Run Times: 3-5 hours on 60 lumen, 7 hours on 120 lumen dayflash mode.

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 moved 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 hose we 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.
