Bright, even in daylight
Not every evening or nighttime ride requires hundreds upon hundreds of lumens to light the way. If your commute is a well-lit route, what's more important is that you are seen by motorists. The Lezyne Zecto Drive Front Light is a compact safety light designed for ease of use and maximum visibility.
As with its race ready Deca Drive light, Lezyne machined the body of the Zecto from aluminum and Composite Matrix. The three LEDs are encased in a dome-like structure which affords 180 degree visibility so that you are seen from the side as well as the front. Additionally, the MOR optics (Maximum Optical Reflection) produce a uniform beam that is wider, smoother, and brighter allowing for more optimal light ahead of the user. The Zecto attaches via a clip-on system which allows for versatile strapped or clip mounting, and the light is easily rechargeable with a micro USB cable.
The Zecto features six user settings, two continuous and four flash modes. The continuous feature either 40 or 20 lumens while three of the flash feature varying flash patterns at 40 lumens. The daytime flash mode is a super bright, high-visibility mode developed to increase visibility during daytime rides. Run-time varies from three to nearly seven hours.
The Lezyne Zecto Drive Front Light weighs 47grams and is available in Black/hi-gloss, Red/hi-gloss, and Polish/hi-gloss.
- Q & A
How far could you see ahead with this bike light? Is this bike more of a 'be seen by motorists'?
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It's a great little light. Easy to mount on any bar with rubberband. Bright! Easy to charge via USB except for having to keep track of that little cable.
