Be seen and keep safe It is illegal and of course dangerous to ride without bike lights and the following requirements should be carefully considered at all times. Check that your bicycle has the following;

• • • •

A white front light should always be present A red rear light is equally important A red rear reflector Amber reflectors on the front and back of each pedal

Below we have selected some fantastic lighting equipment and gave you information on the range. If you haven’t already got lights for those dark nights if you visit us before 28th February and state the code ‘Lezyne14’ you will receive 15% off all Lezyne bike lights.

Macro Drive front Lezyne Macro Drive features a lightweight and sturdy CNC-machined aluminium body with a Side Visibility design that allows 180 degrees of visibility and increases user safety. Constant Lumens power management drives the LED at a bright 350 lm, and the Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level at any time. The Side Visibility Cuts allow for 180 degrees of visibility, especially from the side. The Li-ion battery (non-replaceable) is recharged either with a fast, high efficiency, 2 Amp charging with a compatible wall adaptor, or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience.
