Lezyne Power Drive XL & Zecto Auto Rear bike light review

As rear lights go, the Zecto Auto is a pretty smart bit of kit. As well as the dual clip/rubber band mount set-up, it has an auto flash system that makes the light turn off after 3mins of inactivity, but it’ll turn back on when you start to ride again.

Though it only gives out a modest 20 lumens from its three LEDs, there’s some side visibility through clear panels, which also houses a very useful battery indicator. The Power Drive XL is Lezyne’s 600 lumen front light, which, compared to Cateye’s Volt 300 (or even 700), looks bulky.

It has five modes, but the 600 lumens max power doesn’t seem a lot considering the size of the light. The bar mount is easy and quick to install or swap between bikes and the battery is removable, so you can carry a spare in case you get caught cold. It charges by either a micro USB, which takes 6hrs, or a two-amp wall charge, which cuts charging time.

Verdict: The rear light is a superb bit of kit, but the front loses marks for bulkiness, 73%
