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."

"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."

Value ‘seeing light’ for fast rides - "Lezyne’s big lumen light range has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years. This model puts out 1000 lumens and weighs 153g. Battery life is up to 87 hours, though be aware that comes down to 1.5 hours on high power mode. A full charge takes 4 hours, and the aluminium unit is attached to the handlebars with an all-in-one mount and rubberised strap."
