It's the smallest of their LED lights and will barely be noticed on your handlebars or sitting in your pack, but when you click it on, it delivers a punch that beats back the night.Lezyne works with Cree for the LED bulb. They take that bulb and insert it in the middle of a mirror-finish parabolic reflector dish that, when paired with the lens, creates a focused central beam for distance viewing and diffused light for near and wide-angle viewing. This creates more useful light in what they call a Uniform Power Beam.The light comes with a standard lithium ion battery that can be charged in the unit via a USB cable, which is included, and be swapped for a spare battery if you're on the road.
