LIGHTS OFTHE YEAR

Lezyne Zecto Drive set

Bikes Etc - - AWARDS 2017 -

The evo­lu­tion of day­time rid­ing lights is a rel­a­tively re­cent trend aimed at im­prov­ing road safety in all day­light con­di­tions, not just when it gets dark, so it was a sub­ject that we were keen to ex­am­ine as the sum­mer drew to a close. Af­ter ex­plor­ing what the mar­ket had to of­fer, Lezyne’s Zecto Drive lights emerged as the best out there, set­ting a bench­mark for qual­ity that the com­pany’s rep has been built on. De­spite their rel­a­tively light weight (95g for the pair), these are tough lit­tle lights. Lezyne claims they are drop-re­sis­tant from a me­tre but we can at­test that they won’t bust even if you de­lib­er­ately send them ground­ward from at least half a me­tre more than that (come on, it’s our job to try to break stuff!). They at­tach to your bike or a bit of your­self ei­ther by clips or sil­i­cone straps, and with up to eight dif­fer­ent light­ing modes and a max­i­mum of 15 hours’ burn time, all ur­ban cy­clists should add these to their ar­moury. £62.99 / up­grade­bikes.co.uk
