At A Glance

This rear light from Lezyne means business with a maximum of 70 lumens when in high-visibilty Daytime mode. Your mates will certainly be able to keep track of you when they’re following through the trees! It’s not compulsory to be a beacon of light though as there are a total of 6 modes with Flash 1, Flash 2, Pulse and Regular all providing 30 lumens, and Low reducing it further still to 5 lumens.

A bullet style light with a single on/off button on the top that is still easy to access even when the light is mounted to your seatpost.

On The Trail

As with the Macro Drive Front light, a Composite Matrix support mount hugs the light whilst a silicone rubber strap secures the mount to your bike, and can be tweaked for the desired position and diameter seat tube. This means you can "snap" the light out of the mount easily and leave the mount attached to your bike.

The USB is hidden away from the elements behind a screw-fit end cap so no cables or extra accessories are required for recharging.


More red light than certain areas of Bangkok, this pretty boy will love you long time and keep you safe at night...

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
