Lezyne Megadrive Loaded front light £199.99

Punchy twin-LED unit

BikeRadar score 3.5/5

Lezyne’s most powerful light is a punchy unit at a decent price but it needs helmet light back-up.

The almost retro ribbed design includes a metal latched back door opening to reveal the charging port and swapable battery. The ‘Loaded’ option here comes with a neat metal bar clamp, spare battery and hard storage case for only £35 more than the light alone. 

Output is consistent and the mode button displays battery life when pressed. Short run times mean the spare battery is essential for a decent ride.

The twin LED beam is very focused for an impressive reach down the trail and an appropriately high score on our lux meter. There’s a big black gap between the spot beam and peripheral halo that really needs filling in with a helmet lamp though.
