Light the way.
With shortening winter days and fall foliage giving way to fields of snow, the search for appropriate lighting begins in earnest. Light the way and ride into the night with the Lezyne Deca Drive 1500 XXL Headlight. Capping out at a whopping 1,500 lumens, this light perches on the handlebars to deliver some serious lighting for any adventure.
The body of the Deca Drive 1500 XXL is made from CNC-machined aluminum to protect the light from the weather and dissipate heat out on the road for miles and miles of well-lit ride time. The massive lumens capacity is delivered thanks to three ultrahigh-output LEDs with 180 degrees of visibility for added safety. That huge output is governed by Lezyne's Constant Lumens feature to ensure bright, consistent lighting when you need it.
The Deca Drive 1500 XXL is powered by a USB-rechargeable Li-Ion battery with beefy run times ranging from 1.75 hours on the overdrive setting all the way up to 27.5 hours as a flashing beam. With additional lighting level options between those two bookends, you can customize the brightness to meet your riding needs on the fly with just a click of a button.

Do Not Buy This Light
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this light in July, 2016. Paid $150 for it. Reasonably, I would expect to get at least 3 years out of a product like this. Within 7 months the battery began to fail to fully recharge. I contacted Lezyne and was told to unplug it for 30 seconds during recharging and the "battery clock" would reset itself. Tried this many times, it did not work. 12 months after purchase this light is completely dead. The battery only has a 6 month warranty. I'm pretty certain that the company knows that is the expected life of the battery. Here is the bottom line on expensive headlights:
THE COMPANIES THAT MANUFACTURE THESE LIGHTS KNOW THAT THERE IS A RELIABILITY PROBLEM WITH LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES. They won't tell you this until you complain. Then they will state that fact as if you should have known.
So, my advice is to by a 300-400 lumen headlight for no more than you would be willing to spend for about 9 - 12 months of use. For me, that is around $50. Then when the battery fails, throw it away and get another one.
