Lezyne Femto Drive Front Light

Be seen.

Sometimes being seen is more important than illuminating your own path--think of early-morning urban commuting--so Lezyne designed the work-of-art Femto Drive Front Light to let motorists know you're coming. The LED bulb puts out 15 lumens of steady or flashing illumination, courtesy of two replaceable CR2303 batteries, and the CNC-machined aluminum body keeps rain and spray out while looking like something you'd find on a classic Italian scooter. The stretchy silicone-rubber strap connects easily to bars and stems, and is a breeze to pop off for security if you're leaving your ride outside for a hot minute.

It works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Light weight, easy to use, produces light and is water resistant. Its not the brightest but for an inexpensive light its great.

Great Light, Bright

    These Lezne lights are awesome add-ons to support your evening commuting needs. I grabbed a handful for the family. The light is bright and adds additional confidence of safety for those early evening cruises.

    helps me be seen

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It a little light that adds to my exposure at night. I wouldn't use this as my main head light but it helps me be seen with oncoming traffic. Its small and is nice to have when I need it. Works good enough for short rides home at night.

    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!

    Trash

      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.

      Not so bright

        I liked the micro size, but the light is not so bright.

        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.

          Simple!

          • 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.
