Call it cheap insurance.

Leave it to Lezyne to take something as ordinary as a safety light and turn it into art. The Femto Drive Front Light's durable CNC-machined aluminum body is weather-resistant, dissipates heat to protect the battery, and won't rust no matter how long you leave it outside. The Femto's lens doubles as its on/off button for a super-clean, button-free look. You can use the lens to cycle through four flash modes and one steady mode, as well.

The Composite Matrix back plate can be unscrewed to replace the two CR2032 batteries, and the multi-position silicon-rubber strap can be moved to angle the headlight up or down. The Femto provides 15 lumens of light to make you more visible in traffic. The batteries provide 30 hours of burn time in steady mode and 60 in flash.

The Lezyne Femto Front Light is available in Black, Blue, Silver, or Red and is compatible with just about any bicycle handlebar.

bought this as a gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this as a gift for my brother, who lives in philly and bikes at night constantly. He's told me that it's simple to use and has given him more visibility to cars. Also, he hasn't gotten hit so far, so sounds like it works as expected.

Piece of Mind

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is light and easy to use, but it feels cheep. Holding my breath while using it in the rain....
UPDATE--I had a 3-hour ride in heavy rain. Light still works great!


    Never came on with batteries included. Opened it up fiddled with the contact points with a tiny screwdriver and got it to work for about a week on my wife's bike. Transferred it to my bike one evening - no light. Retried the aforementioned procedure with contact points - no light. No light? . . . Trash. I'll never buy one of this push on/off style lights again. This is the third strike.

    Not the brightest light out there

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This light barely produces enough light to see the ground in front of you. For the price it's hard to complain but I really wouldn't recommend this light for anything more then making you more visible to cars.

    Great little light

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had a couple of these and they are awesome! Lightweight to carry in the pack for returning across town after a late afternoon shoreline trail. Easy to mount on all sizes of bars and seatposts with the rubber strap.

    Great for micro rides

      This light is great for safety in the city for those grocery store runs and when you end your rides in the evening while the days are getting shorter.

      I use Exposure lights for the real night rides.

      Does the job

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This light is so simple to use. We got these to let cars see us in tunnels and they do a great job. They're not intended to light the road, but they are inexpensive and reliable.

      Simple and Effective

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This light is a super simple design, I have both the front and rear and I couldn't be happier. At a price that doesn't break the bank you get a light that has 5 settings. At only 7 lumens it doesn't put out a ton of light but it does allow you to be seen. A great economical choice for lighting up your bar bike.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This light attaches and detaches with a durable elastic band, and the battery lasts a long time. I've had it a couple months and used it multiple times a week, and the light still shines bright, on all three settings.

      Great to be seen, not to see.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      If you're looking for a light to help illuminate your journey, this is not the lamp for you. However, if you're looking for something to alert drivers to your presence, step no further. The Lezyne Femoto Drive Front Light and its multiple settings will alert all drivers, runners, riders, and critters, of your coming. It includes a steady state bulb, a fading setting, a blink setting, and a 70s disco setting.

      This light is not to be used to help guide your journey, it is far too weak for that and barley illuminates a few feet past the wheel.

      As a complaint, I wish the rubber strap was longer. I have a hybrid with what I assume average diameter handlebars, but I often struggle stretching the strap around the bar. Maybe half an inch longer would be better, but I'll take what I can get.

      Handy light, easy to fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This light is very sleek, easy to install and is very bright. I use these lights every night around town and feel much safer with them on. Very good for the price.

      Great Light

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Listen - if you're looking in this price range, you're obviously not getting huge stream of light. But this guy does the trick - multiple flash settings which certainly force cars to see you. You may hit a pothole or 2 on your way home from the bar, but then again..thats half the fun.

      Is this bright enough to be used as a "be seen" light during the day? I mean is it visible from a distance in daylight?

      At 15 lumens this is not bright enough to be a "be seen" light during the day. It it meant for drivers to be able to see it at night.

      bright yet small and lightweight

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a great LED bike light. Rubber stretchy thing just hitches onto your handlebars. Push the light and it turns on. Pretty handy.

      Nice little bike light

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Not being visible to traffic at night can be a little dangerous.

      These lights are nice and inexpensive. They only really light up 5-6 feet in front of your bike, but its more than bright enough to catch the attention of cars passing by. I just leave my light on the slowest flashing mode to conserve battery.

      I like that these have a little clip on them too so I can slide it onto a backpack for hiking around at night.

      Great light for the money. Will probably also bring these on climbing trips and set them up at night to do some night time bouldering


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      this light is low on price, high on ease of use. press it in for three seconds to turn it on and off, tap once to engage each of the three modes. it's a great light and a total necessity for night time riding.

      Great Value

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I needed a commuter light for my circa 1995 commuter whip.

      Obviously, I'm not going to spend a fortune on that.

      I just need something that flashes.

      At first I was puzzled because I could not get this thing to work.

      Then I realized I was an idiot, and you actually have to press the light in for 3+ seconds before it will activate.

      There are 3 different modes - I've been using this frequently with no issues for a month now. Good enough that I grabbed a set for my roommate as well.

      We are stylin and the bank is not broken.

      Great Value
