Twice the power.
Since you found yourself here, we're going to assume that you need the brightest, most-dependable front light available. So, how does 1000 lumens sound? Basically, this is as bright as a car's high beams, and it's what the Lezyne Mega Drive Loaded Front Light can deliver for over an hour. And with this level of power, there's no root, rut, or broken bottle that will escape your field of vision.
The most obvious difference between the Mega 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 Mega Drive can handle it. The machined aluminum body also dissipates heat, which has a tendency to damage Li-ion batteries over time. And for the sake of being real, it also looks really good. You might 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 Mega Drive now has a redesigned power button that increases the headlight's water- and weather-resistance. How? Well, 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 (located on top of the light housing) will be either Green, Red, or flashing Red to indicate power level.
Lezyne's Infinite Light feature is another innovation that adds versatility and usability for endurance riders, 24-hour racers, or anyone planning to out-ride the battery's burn time. But, if you burn out your battery, just pop it out and slide in a fully-charged Li-ion. It sounds simple, but it's a rare feature among trail lights. Additionally, it allows you to ride as long as you want, depending on the number of backup-batteries that you decide to carry. Battery conservation is further enhanced through the new Standard and Race mode features. Basically, selecting either mode allows the light to optimize power for the ride setting.
Another trail-enhancing innovation is Lezyne's Constant Current technology. Constant Current delivers even and constant lumen output over the entire life of the battery without any dimming or fading out as the battery loses charge. This feature increases efficiency in order to allow the Mega Drive to burn brighter and longer. The Mega 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, and uniform power beam.
The Mega Drive has four modes: Blast (1000 lumens), Enduro (500 lumens), Flash (250 lumens), and Economy (250 lumens). The battery is good for 1.5 hours, 2.5 hours, 10 hours, and 5.5 hours in each mode, respectively. Lezyne's side visibility technology also makes the Mega Drive visible from 180 degrees at night without illuminating your handlebars, which can be distracting.
It includes an Li-ion rechargeable battery, a USB charger, and a Composite Matrix handlebar mount that fits both 25.4 and 31.8mm bars. And with the Fully Loaded package, Lezyne is also throwing in an aluminum handlebar mount and a spare Li-ion battery. Lezyne estimates that a full battery-recharge takes around five hours, and the light tips the scales around 250 grams without any mounting hardware.
The Lezyne Mega Drive Loaded Front Light is available in one size and in the color Black.
