The light is ideal as a helmet light by itself or complementing the Lezyne Deca Drive 1500 XXL. The 154 gram weight is perfect for helmet mounting, as no wires are required on this self-contained unit.

Lezyne Power Drive 900XL Beam Pattern

Beam Pattern Photo

We photographed the lights in the same location setting with the same camera settings. The photo was taken in the back yard that is approximately 25 yards long. The backyard beam pattern allows you to gauge the throw and the width of the light. Compare all Beam Patterns here ยป

Run time is 1:20 on high. It’s a bit on the low side, so switching to a lower power during long climbs may be advisable on longer rides.

Good optics, good price and form factor make this a good purchase as long as the customer is able to access the Overdrive mode from the onset.
