Equipped with three high-output LEDs that emit up to 1500 lumens, Lezyne’s Deca Drive 1500i virtually eliminatesdarkness. With 7 modes of illumination - flashing and steady, up to 148 hours of runtime, and 15 to 1500 lumens - this headlight can tackle any low light environment - from crypt-like darkness to fog. Its composite matrix and CNC machined aluminum construction provides weather resistance and structural integrity that can withstand regular, year-round use. MOR optics lenses deliver densely concentrated beams onto the ground directly ahead of you while side cutouts expand your field of illumination while making you more visible to those around you. For expediency, the Deca Drive 1500i powers on in the same mode in which it was powered off. The handy alternative Overdrive mode allows you to toggle between Economy and Overdrive with just one click of the button so you don’t have to cycle through all 7 modes every time.

Bright and versatile
I use a pair of these mounted upside-down on the underside of a wing type Aerofly handlebar. I can pivot or tilt the lights without any tools so they provide adequate spread and variable angle when riding the bike path through the woods at night. I have the lights set at race mode, so if I am approaching oncoming riders or joggers, I can easily reach under the bars to dim the lights without taking my hands fully off the bars. With a total output of 15001500 lumens, left and right, its probably overkill for street use, but, in my experience, when drivers see a very, very bright non-blinking light, they tend to exercise more caution because they perceive it as something much bigger than a cyclist. Ive had oncoming left turning motorists come to a complete stop almost a block away in order to let me pass. Funny, when I have the lights blinking, the opposite happens, and they try to squeeze in that left turn just as I approach the intersection, probably because they know Im a bike.
So, keep em bright and steady my friends.
