"The front light’s beam quality is excellent; it has a good reach and the spread is even, with no obvious ‘stepping’ on the periphery. Blast mode is sufficiently bright for most everyday (or rather, everynight) riding, although you have the reassurance of Overdrive mode should you need it. A slim cut-out in the housing gives visibility from the side. The rear light has five modes, comprising Blast, three flashing and economy. Compact and lightweight, it provides plenty of visibility for its size, including from the side thanks to its curved profile."

"But if you do a lot of urban mountain biking that involves riding through town on your way to the trails, or if you also do a lot of gravel and road riding, the ability to switch modes on multiple lights with the click of one button is advantageous. This feature, paired with so many mode options and a solid, quality light at an affordable price makes the Lezyne Connect Smart series worth looking into for the rider who does a little bit of everything and needs lights that are as versatile as they are."

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.
