"You set up the modes the way you like, save them, and switch between them via the phone app or your Lezyne head unit (more on that in a second). On top of that, the switch on the front light now controls both lights, and pages through the presets as you press the button. Nice.
I’ve been running with four modes: Overdrive/Flash 1, Blast/Flash 1, Econ/Flash 2, and Day time flash/Day time flash. This gives me “usually too darn bright but there’s that one patch of singletrack I use as a shortcut home”, “Almost always just about right”, “Oh crap, I forgot to charge my lights”, and “daytime” modes, and this is a pretty sweet setup."
"Bottom line? I found myself really liking this setup. I’m running the Lezyne Mega XL on my bike. When it’s daytime, it’s handling mapping duties. If/when it starts to get dark, I switch over to “Smart Connect” and it controls my lights, which are the very ones pictured in this article."

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 Pair with the 1000XL, or buy the rear light separately and pair it with the Super Drive 1600 XXL or even Mega Drive 1800i.

An app for your lights? That might sound like a chore, but it's not: Lezyne's Smart connect app is simple and very effective...The bottom line here is that the Smart Connect set takes two lights we've tested independently and reckon are very good, adds some genuinely useful and easy-to-use app functionality, and the uptick over the standard light set is only a tenner. It's money worth paying. This is the most usable connected light set I've tried: they're easy to set up how you like them, and using them could barely be simpler.
