03.11.2021 - Review: Lezyne Mega Drive 1800i front light – Road.cc
"Lezyne's Mega Drive 1800i front light offers a large amount of power and some potentially useful smart functionality as part of the company's Smart Connect range. As a self-contained, full-night-time-beam front light, it's a very good piece of kit."

The Lezyne Smart Connect Lights make turning on and off both the front and rear lights as simple as pressing a single button. The button that’s up in front of you, so you aren’t reaching down between your legs trying to find the button of the light on your seatpost. Because of this, the lights are much easier to properly use, and battery life is extended. They’re also super bright, have modes that can be customized in the Lezyne Smart Connect App, and the KTV Pro Smart Pair that I’ve been using are small and easy to mount on most bikes. The KTV Pro is a good “to be seen” light, but if you want a “to see with” light, check out the Connect Smart Pa

"A quality option that offers up a greater battery life than the competition and produces a wide beam that helps keep your peripheral vision informed."
10.12.2020 - Lezyne Macro Drive 1300XXL front light review - Bike Radar
"Lezyne’s Macro Drive 1300XXL delivers a beast of an output in its 1,300-lumen Overdrive mode. In the beam shot you can see not only the reach but the wide angle and height that lights up the tree canopy. On an unlit road with little traffic or on gravel/trail, that is a whole lot of light to navigate."

"The latest version of Lezyne's popular Macro Drive comes in various lumen strengths, with this one packing a huge 1300 on full beam. The battery can last up to 148 hours on the lowest pulse setting, and the beam shape is optimised thanks to Lezyne's Tri-Focus Optics lens, which creates a brighter centre spot in a large wide-angle pattern. It's USB rechargeable, and the versatile strap means it can be stuck on and removed from your bars in seconds."

01.11.2020 - Lezyne Lite Drive 1000XL front and Lezyne KTV Pro Drive 75 rear light review - BikeRadar
4.5/5 STARS - "Bright, tough and versatile front light and a rear with excellent peripheral illumination: Lezyne’s 1,000-lumen Lite Drive front light has eight modes from its two LEDs, ranging from a tiny 15-lumen emergency light (with a claimed 87-hour run time) to the full-whack 1,000-lumen Overdrive setting...It’s secured to handlebars using the familiar chunky rubber strap: turn the light 90 degrees, stretch the rubber over the bar and secure it, then rotate the light back. The light didn’t go anywhere and was reasonably easy to attach and remove."
12.02.2019 - Review: Lezyne Lite Drive 1000XL - Road.cc
"The Lezyne Lite Drive 1000XL is a compact, high-powered front light which offers plenty of output options, a decent beam pattern and is very well made, plus it's probably one of the 'pounds-per-lumen' lights on the market...Overall, the Lite Drive 1000XL is a decent option for a rider who wants a powerful light for training with after dark without having to spend too much...I certainly can't fault its quality and beam for the money."
