Lezyne Femto Drive – 2013 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Lights Lights Shootout

These are not big or bright lights. Rather, they are incognito lights that disappear into your bike and allow you to be seen in a pinch when you’re roaming the dark streets. They’re stealthy until you need them and that is their biggest asset.

Specifications:

  • Price: $15
  • Claimed Lumens: 15 Lumens
  • Measured Lumens: 10 Lumens
  • Light Head Weight: 28 grams
  • Installed Weight: 28 grams
  • Run Time: 30 Hours
  • Category: Flashlight/Commuter

Strengths:

  • Small and affordable

Weaknesses:

  • 10 measured lumens is short of 15 claimed.
  • Not rechargable
  • Uses watch batteries

Mounting:

Handlebar mounting is done with very slick strap that can be tightened based on the rider’s preference. The same strap is used for standard and oversized handlebars. At first we found the strap too long and found the excess bothersome but we realized we can loop the strap back  in the pin and tuck it neatly. It can be aimed left to right.

Integrating Sphere Measured Lumens: Compare all lights here.

This light measured 10 Lumens in an integrating sphere. Claimed Lumens by the manufacturer is 15 Lumens. The Lumen-hour graph below shows how the light performs over the first three minutes of its battery cycle.
