The Lezyne Mega Drive XL Front Bicycle Light extracts 1000 lumens from a compact, self-contained headlight. The Mega Drive clamps to your handlebar, no cords or bulky battery packs, and lights up the trail in front of you. It's that simple.
The most obvious difference between the Mega Drive and other lights is the CNC'd aluminum body. In the event that you take a spill (not hard to do on a trail at night), the Mega Drive can handle it. The machined aluminum body also dissipates heat, which can damage Li-ion batteries over time. It also looks good. You'll downplay the importance of style, but let's face it–you don't want to hang some cheap, plastic gumball-machine headlight on your carbon race machine. The Mega Drive is sporting a redesigned power button that increases the headlight's water- and weather-resistance. The new power button contains the green and red LEDs that allow you to monitor battery level without losing a pedal stroke. When the headlight is on, the indicator (located on top of the light housing) will be either green, red, or flashing red to indicate power level.
Lezyne’s Infinite Light feature is another unique innovation that adds versatility and usability for endurance riders, 24-hour racers, or anyone planning to outride the battery’s burn time. If you burn out your battery, just pop it out and slide in a fully charged Li-ion. It sounds simple but it’s a rare feature among trail lights and it allows you to ride as long as you want, depending on the number of backup-batteries you decide to carry.
Another performance-enhancing innovation is Lezyne's Constant Current technology. Constant Current delivers even and constant lumen output over the entire life of the battery without dimming or fading out as the battery loses charge. This feature increases efficiency to allow the Mega Drive to burn brighter, longer. The Mega Drive is also equipped with Lezyne's Maximum Optical Reflection one-piece internal reflection technology. The result is a light with fewer parts and a smoother, wider Uniform Power Beam.
The Mega Drive has three modes: Blast (1000 lumens), Enduro (500 lumens), and Economy (200 lumens). The battery is good for 1.5 hours, 2.5 hours, and 5.5 hours in each mode, respectively. Lezyne's design makes the Mega Drive visible from 180 degrees at night without illuminating your handlebars, which can be distracting. It includes Li-ion, rechargeable 18650 batteries and a USB charger, and a nylon handlebar mount.
The Lezyne Mega Drive Bicycle Headlight comes in black and is compatible with 31.8mm or 25.4mm road or mountain handlebars.
