Description

Versatility, thy name be Macro.

With a full 300 lumens and some of Lezyne's sexiest headlight technologies, the Macro Drive Front light is the king of bang-for-your-buck. The Macro is capable of more than just saving your life in traffic, though that's a pretty big thing. The Macro is also bright enough to hit the trail. The easy-to-use snap-fit mount swaps from your road bike to your mountain bike to your bar crawler in seconds, so you don't have to get multiple lights and you don't waste any valuable riding or drinking time.

The most obvious difference between the Macro Drive and other lights is the CNC-machined aluminum body. In the event that you take a spill (not hard to do on a trail at night), the Macro Drive can handle it. The machined aluminum body also dissipates heat, which can damage LED bulbs over time. It also looks good. You'll downplay the importance of style, but let's face it–you don't want to hang some cheap, plastic gumball-machine headlight on your carbon race machine. The Macro Drive is sporting a redesigned power button that increases the headlight's water- and weather-resistance. The new power button hides the green and red LED's that allow you to monitor battery level without losing a pedal stroke. When the headlight is on, the indicator (locator on top of the light housing) will be either green, red, or flashing red to indicate power level. The Macro Drive is also equipped with Lezyne's Maximum Optical Reflection one-piece internal reflection technology. The result is a light with fewer parts and a smoother, wider Uniform Power Beam.

The Macro Drive has four modes: Blast (300 lumens), Enduro (200 lumens), Flash (200 lumens), and Economy (100 lumens). The battery is good for 3 hours, 4.5 hours, 9 hours, and 9 hours in each mode, respectively. Lezyne's side visibility technology makes the Macro Drive visible from 180 degrees at night without illuminating your handlebars, which can be distracting. It includes Li-ion, rechargeable batteries and a USB charger, and a nylon handlebar mount.

The Lezyne Macro Drive XL Bicycle Headlight comes in Black and Silver and is compatible with 31.8mm or 25.4mm road or mountain handlebars.

Great light for the $

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this light. I wound up using it as a flashlight anytime I need one camping or otherwise because its so bright. I've never had the afore-mentioned issues with the mount, it has always remained in place for me and the majority of the time I use it on trails mounted to my mountain bike.

Good light, bad mount.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The light itself is great. Bright with a good pattern. The battery life is good as well. Unfortunately, the mount doesn't keep it in place. I use it on the handlebars of my commuter bike and every time I hit any sort of bump, the light moves up or down. I have to constantly adjust it. I ended up switching back to an older NiteRider light because I couldn't keep this light aimed.

I had a similar issue with mine, the solution is to mount it upside down, hanging from the bar.
