Lezyne Macro Duo Light

Slam it in your pocket for those road transfers

Not long ago bike lights were heavy, unreliable and had a tangle of wires with dodgy connectors.They were expensive too, and many still are, but a light like this compact Lezyne Macro Duo light at less than £70 was unheard of.

Light technology has developed over time and with battery and LED technology improvements we now see outputs of 2000 Lumens or more letting us ride confidently at near daylight speeds through dark, technical, forest tracks. So, with only a maximum of 400 Lumens output, why all the fuss over this dinky Lezyne headlamp?

“The whole unit weighs in at under 100g and snaps into an easily adjustable helmet mount”

Well, not all lights give enough spread of light to rely on as a single source for night riding. We’ve picked the Light and Motion Seca in this year’s (and last year’s) Dirt 100 because we can rely on its spread of light and output as a solo bike mounted unit without the need for a separate headlamp. It’s rare to find this in a light, and most riders we know are usually running both bike and helmet mount lights to get full vision ahead of the bike and for scanning the trail when cornering. This can get expensive, especially when a reliable wire-free unit with the light and battery combined is the most convenient option for the helmet.

The Lezyne Macro Duo has a neat CNC machined aluminium casing, holding the Li-Ion battery and an LED tail lamp as well as the main front light. The whole unit weighs in at under 100g and snaps into an easily adjustable helmet mount. With front output of 100 – 400 Lumens this light is an excellent supplement to your bike mounted set-up, enabling more complete night time vision. If the trails are less testing you can knock the output down and battery life can be up to 8 hours for a steady 100 Lumens. The rear light has three settings and keeps you seen on those short road transitions.

As a package, at less than £70, we feel this is a great investment, especially as spare brackets and batteries are available through the UK importer. Whether making a trail side repair, letting you rip the night time trail that bit more confidently, or as a spare if your main light fails after the post ride pub stop, the Macro Duo is a gem.
