The Lezyne Helmet Hecto Drive 500XL Helmet Mounted Cycle Light is a compact, lightweight helmet-mounted bicycle light with up to 500 lumens of output. It’s constructed from CNC-machined aluminium with built-in cooling fins providing optimal heat management and durability. With a GoPro-style mounting interface and a versatile Velcro mounting strap with a Composite Matrix base, the Helmet Hecto Drive 500XL is a low-profile LED that follows the user’s line-of-sight for excellent visibility and enough output for casual night riding. A built in USB stick allows for cable-free charging, and it has a max runtime of 20 hours. Eight output modes are on offer, including a highly disruptive Daytime Flash mode.
Bike lights are rated in Lumens. A Lumen is the measurement of the total visible light emitted and is commonly used for all kinds of bulbs.
One thing worth noting is that most lights advertise their headline rate. Packaging may say 1000 lumens. Reading the small print they might only do that for an hour. That light may run 500 or 600 lumens for 2 or 3 hours. So it's worth buying a light with more lumens than you need to get decent running times.
There is no fixed agreement on how many Lumens you need for a bike light as it depends on the type of cycling you are doing. As a rough guide we say that:
