Impressive Output With A Compact Design
The Lezyne Hecto Drive 500XL / Stick Pair features a compact design with super bright LED emitters, with 500 lumens in the front and 30 lumens in the back.
The Lezyne Hecto Drive 500XL front light is a compact, durable bicycle light with a machined aluminum body. It features built-in cooling fins and cutouts for side visibility.
Its single LED design provides up to an impressive 500 lumens of output and eight output modes—including a Daytime Flash mode. Runtime has increased by 2.5 hours for up to 20 hours. Charging is simple with an integrated cable-free USB stick. It securely straps to a variety of handlebar shapes and sizes.
The Lezyne Stick Drive rear light is an incredibly thin and lightweight rear bike light equipped with eight super bright LED emitters. Its minimalistic design is optimized for versatility and ease of use.
A simple o-ring securely straps it to a bicycle seat post, and an innovative magnetic attachment separates the light from the mount for quick charging accessibility. It's equipped with an integrated USB stick for cable-free charging, providing up to an impressive 23 hours of runtime.
The Wide Angle Optics lens creates up to 270° of visibility, and the light outputs up to 30 lumens—this includes a disruptive Daytime Flash feature among its seven modes.
With its narrow design and compact mount, the Lezyne Stick Drive is the perfect taillight for maintaining aerodynamics and also attaching to seat posts with minimal space—like a dropper post. Designed and produced in-house, the Lezyne Stick Drive is engineered for long-lasting durability and built to be highly water-resistant.

Both lights are super bright and have plenty of brightness/flash settings for you to tune to your preference. They charge via USB-A (the old school big USB slots) which might seem old-fashioned but is actually pretty handy (no juggling cords and adapters, you can basically always find a USB-A slot somewhere).
1. The front light's battery life isn't excellent. Just taking a couple spins through the neighborhood at night using the not-ultra-bright setting brought me down to 50%-ish battery life. I have no doubt this thing could last through a nice night ride, but if you're spending a lot of time riding in the dark without opportunities to charge up you might be bummed.
2. The bands to attach the lights to the bikes seem a notch too small. My bike doesn't have weirdly-large tubes or handlebars and I have to really pull hard on the rubber straps to get them to latch. I guess this could also be considered a good thing, the lights do feel secure when riding.
The 500 lumens in the front are excellent; however, running at this setting the battery will not even last for 1hr. Quite the sad realization while riding at night and running out of juice while still 30 min to get back.
Been a huge fan of Lezyne products for years. High quality and good longevity. I snagged the above light combo during one of BTD's excellent sales. I have not yet used the taillight but the headlight is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, which I currently own, and yet produces the same lumens. What's not to like?
