I was hesitant to buy this tail light at first because it cost more than others on the market. But I have used a few others that just did not meet my needs so I decided to spend the extra money. So far, I am happy with my decision. Some tail lights I have used are also bright but this one actually has three LED's that increases its visibility. There are also several different settings to choose from. The battery life is also very good. This has features that allow you to attach it to either your seat post or saddle bag. I am a bike commuter and I use my lights day and night. Being visible to cars has made my commuting a lot safer. I would highly recommend this tail light.
This is my 3rd one of these, lost the first one, still using the 2nd and wanted a backup.
The highest daytime flash setting puts out 250L every 2 seconds, with a couple less bright flashes in between. Last's about 8 hours on this setting. This can be seen by cars probably a 1/4 mile away - and is very bright up close, so no way they don't see AND pay attention to you.
The lower flash settings last for 12+ hours if you're riding in anything other than bright sunlight.
So far for me has been the best rear light I've seen. Get one. Get one for a friend.
This is the best daytime flash I have had. It really puts out a light that will receive attention in daylight.
Works great, recharges and attaches and removes easily. Stays in place. Gives me confidence on the road.
I bought the Lezyne Zecto Max rear light for daytime use. I am very pleased. It fits the bill. A wide selection of modes in varying brightnesses and light patterns. I have been using the Day Flash 125 lumens mode, riding with a group, charging the battery after about 10 hours use, before the battery wears down. Riding alone, I might use the 250 lumen Day Flash 1 for even greater attention. Both settings are bright & very visible, even in the strong AZ sun.
At first, I tried a cheapy light, and then I realized the worth of spending extra to have a light that meets the need. I selected this light by observing the lights used by bikers in my bike group.
There is an especially bright flashing mode for bright daytime use and a toned down version for overcast days. For night time use there are several modes. Battery goes 3 or 4 20 mile rides before I recharge but it has yet to run low enough to warn me to charge. Easy to securely attach to the seat post, etc. Very solid quality craftsmanship.
This is a great rear bike light. VERY bright. I feel a lot safer riding city streets knowing I am definitely visible from behind. (Visible over a mile in low light, 1/2 mile in daylight). The rechargeable battery lasts pretty long depending on the mode you use. Not an expensive light, works well, Im happy.
When I first got the tail light I thought it was malfunctioning. The paper booklet that came with it described green flashing light while charging. My charging indicator was flashing yellowishorange. I thought it was malfunctioning. I contacted LEZYNE for warranty replacement, and I found out that a green LED under a red cover lens would give this orangey color indication. My front light was flashing clearly green while charging (clear lens cover). So far both lights are performing well and keeping charge long enough.
I don't ride much at night so having a tail light that really shows up in bright sunshine is very important. The 250 lumen setting on the Lezyne Zecto Max Drive looks equal to the brake lights on a car. It is REALLY bright!
Do not stare directly at this light on the 250 lumen setting unless you are some distance away.....
Nice bright light. Use it on all my rides , day or night. Charges quickly. Had churned through a few less expensive lights that ultimately failed. This light seems more robust.
