Lezyne reveals Femto Drive light at Sea Otter Classic

Lezyne has launched the Femto Drive LED light at the California-set bicycle festival Sea Otter Classic.

The Femto Drive is a small LED light, available in a front (white) and rear (red) version as well as a front and rear pair. The front version pumps out 15 lumens of light while the rear puts out seven, according to the current blurb from the brand. It is powered by a pair of replaceable included CR2032 coin cell batteries. It will be in stores (US ones at least) by autumn.

UPDATE: Further to the news from Sea Otter, UK distributor Upgrade has confirmed the new light will be available in July.
SRPs will be –
Front £12.99: body colour Black/Silver/Red/Blue
Rear £12.99: body colour Black/Silver/Red/Blue
Pair £21.99: body colour Black & Black /Silver and Silver

Dealers are encouraged to contact their Upgrade sales agents or the Upgrade office on 01403 711 611 to pre-order and find out more.

"The Femto Drive LED is pretty small, but still manages to really pack a punch," enthused Lezyne’s marketing head Patrick Ribera-McKay. "The body is CNC-machined aluminum and super weather resistant. This light is going to be in service for much longer than other blinky lights, but it’s only going to cost $14.99 [see above]."

New side-loading bottle cages in composite matrix and carbon fibre versions are also being launched by Lezyne at Sea Otter, alongside new CO2 inflators, and some new colour iterations.

If you’re currently enjoying the Californian sunshine and head to the Lezyne booth (718) in person you’ll see the "Lezyne Exploder" competition where entrants are racing head-to-head to inflate inner tubes until they blow.

Sea Otter Classic started yesterday and runs over the weekend.
