Recommended Posts

I bought this one - Lezyne Micro Drive Pro 800XL

 

Then again, its all about the right tool for the job.

 

I only use it for road rides.  And then barely an hour in the dark, with the light at full beam.  Actually, at dawn you dont need full beam.  As soon as the sun starts to rise the light is switched to one of the flash modes.

 

It has done many 7 hour rides, and never ran out of battery life.

 

 

For night rides .... well then you may want more light, and much more battery life.

Would get the lezyne and a cheapie for your head from CWC (one of those advertised +- 1000 lumen ones).

You can't ride trails without a head light with any sort of somfort/confidence.

The lezyne i would choose, simply as there are actual reviews and graphs of the light output compared to lights i have used in person (the Lezyne Deca Crive 1500i and Giant Recon HL1800) - https://road.cc/content/review/lezyne-super-drive-1600xxl-279191

That way I can see IRL how the light performs compared to something I have personally experienced. The other one...no direct comparative data so woudl just ignore it

if you want proper advice, maybe let the people know what you intend doing with it.

 

road/mtb/jakkalsjag all have very different requirements

Just check that either light will fit your handlebars. I've got Vision 4 handlebars and because they are aero, most lights don't fit.

The Lezyne just squeezes on, but I'm waiting for the dreaded snap of the rubber band every time I fit it...

I will be using it mostly on my road bike but every now and then I do a night right on my mtb.
