Already reaching for those lights to finish your rides? Us too. Fortunately, there are a bunch of new products out there to help you get (and stay) lit. Lezyne has been continually introducing more and more electronics, and Interbike was no exception. Now there are new lights, remotes, GPS options, and of course, a bunch of new tools and accessories as well.
A number of Lezyne’s newest lights feature the addition of a remote – both wired and wireless. Their Connect Drive combo includes their first wireless remote which operates both the front 800XL light and the rear Connect Strip Drive 150. Both lights are USB rechargeable, and the remote uses a 2032 coin cell battery. Sold as a kit for $150.
Wired remotes are also now included in select Loaded kits, and are sold as optional accessories for some of the new lights. Lezyne pointed out that the remotes require lights with a different circuit board, so these are not backwards compatible.
Lights like the Super Drive 1500XXL, Macro Drive 1100 XL, Lite Drive 800XL, and Micro Drive Pro 650XL are all available with a loaded kit that includes the remote for $149.99, $99.99, $79.99, and $69.99 respectively.
Another lighting option is the new Multi Drive, which is Lezyne’s first stand alone headlight with a separate Infinite Light power pack battery. I’ve always appreciated that Lezyne’s lights are an all-in-one solution, but if you’d prefer a lighter, smaller light to mount to your helmet or X-Lock mount, this should be a good option. The light has a maximum 1000 lumens at 3hrs run time, or 18hrs in economy mode. Sold with a helmet mount, strap mount, GoPro adapter, and X-Lock mount for $170.
If you missed out on the limited edition yellow GPS unit, they’re gone for good. But there are a few new colorful options including red, pink, green, and white. These all have the same price as the black Mega XL, just with different colors. And if you’re looking for a new mount, make sure to check out the adapters from K-Edge.
Tubeless repair kits are the new multi-tools – everyone’s got one it seems. Lezyne has two. The Classic Tubeless kit, and the Tubeless Kit. The Classic includes a fixed tool and five XL plugs inside of a plastic carrying case for just $10. The Tubeless Kit is a little more at $20, but it collapses to fit inside of the tool for water tight, compact storage.
Other new tools include the Torque Drive which is a variation on the beam style torque wrench with replaceable bits. Load the bit you want into the tool, then twist until the indicator lines up with the desired torque. Sold as a kit with all of the bits for $50.
The Flow Storage Adapter packs two CO2 cartridges, two tire levers, an inflator head, and multi tool into a bracket that mounts underneath your favorite cage for $50.
The Storage Cage is a bit more sleek and packs the important bits inside the storage pod with a bigger multi tool, CO2 head, and patch kit. The CO2 cartridges are then strapped to the side of the cage. The whole kit sells for $60, or you can pick up the cage for just $20.
