Pitched at both the commuter or the road cyclist who needs to have an effective light handy if light levels drop, the Lezyne Femto Drive LED light is a very well thought out, stylish and robust design that ticks all the right boxes.
Made out of aluminium, this small (29g), compact light has a 15 lumens output. Available as a front, rear or pair, the Femto has FIVE modes, including the innovative strobe mode (essentially a pulsing light). Easy to fit and operate, this is definitely a light that will get you seen, though not one to guide you home in the dark. At £12.99 if bought individually or £21.99 for the pair, it is also relatively inexpensive for a non-rechargeable light, especially given the quality of Lezeyne products.
Coming in four different colours - anodised black, silver, red and blue the Femto Drive has an impressive 5 light modes - slow and rapid flash, flash, solid high and the clever strobing flash that pulses very effectively. It's worth noting that this is very simple to operate and move through the different light modes - even with gloves - as all you to do is simply press the lens of the light.
It can also withstand the odd knock too, which I know from personal experience having clumsily dropped the light with a heavy clunk. Fortunately, no damage to the light or casing and it continued to operate perfectly. Rain and spray have tested the water resistance too and again, no issues to report - no doubt due to the fact that the light is O-ring sealed to FL1 standard.
The light can be attached to several areas of your bike by a silicon band, though It would be useful if the band was physically attached to the casing to guard against loss, but otherwise it's difficult to find fault with such neat and funky little light!
The Femto Drive takes two CR2032 batteries per light. Not the cheapest, but there are good deals to be found on packs. A set of batteries are supplied with the lights and Lezeyne claim that you'll get 30 hours in constant mode (solid high/pulse) and 60 hours in flash mode per set, though light quality will drop as the batteries reduces in strength.
