This is yet another product from Light & Motion which has lived up to the hype and expectation.

When on its highest setting it gives out a whopping 800 lumens output, giving you a very bright light when it’s dark.

The Lezyne Femto Drive LED Light set is a personal favorite for me because of how portable and budget-friendly this bike light is. It can fit anywhere, even in a knapsack.
