The Lezyne Smart Connect Pair includes a front and rear light that can be interconnected using the LED Ally phone app.
The front boasts eight different modes with a three-hour run time in Blast (500 lumens), which extends to five-and-half hours if dialled back to 250 lumens in Enduro mode. Other modes include daylight flashing, the battery-saving Femto and a powerful Overdrive that delivers 1,000 lumens of light.
The front light’s beam quality is excellent; it has a good reach and the spread is even, with no obvious ‘stepping’ on the periphery.
Blast mode is sufficiently bright for most everyday (or rather, everynight) riding, although you have the reassurance of Overdrive mode should you need it. A slim cut-out in the housing gives visibility from the side.
The rear light has five modes, comprising Blast, three flashing and economy. Compact and lightweight, it provides plenty of visibility for its size, including from the side thanks to its curved profile.
Both lights employ a rugged stretch-band fitting that works for most bar sizes and setups. The brackets are clamped to the body, resulting in easy-to-fit lights.
The overall build quality is very good and the lights have a robust waterproof rating of IPX7, meaning they’ll withstand being submerged in water to one metre for up to 30 minutes.
The rear light can be turned on independently but, once both lights have been paired via the app, switching on the front light also turns on the rear.
The different modes can easily be cycled through by toggling the on/off button that’s located on the top of the front light. Via the phone app, you can pre-program the modes that are appropriate for your own riding.
The front light is charged using a micro-USB cable, while the rear has an inbuilt USB stick that plugs directly into a USB port.
