Cycling Active Magazine Names Stainless 12 Multi-Tool as Top 7 Multi-Tool
With a ranking of 7/10 by Cycling Active magazine, Lezyne’s Stainless 12 Multi-Tool was in some good company when it was ranked as one of the “7 of the Best Multi-Tools” in their January Issue.
“…exceptionally well-made tool. The construction feels almost industrial but is very well thought out and comfortable to use. Pieces are well spaced and easy to access, which makes a nice change. As the saying goes though: ‘buy cheap, buy twice’ and with this, you probably won’t need to buy another multi-tool for a decade.”
“The wintertime means less light on the road. If your significant other rides in the early-morning or evening hours, a good list is a must to stay safe.” We couldn’t agree more, and the Power Drive XL is the perfect light to get your cycling-obsessed significant other.
The UK had a bit of fun with the CityCross event. Lezyne and Upgrade Bikes were present at the event and provided prizes and goodies for the riders! This was the second year for the event and they are currently searching for a venue for the third.
RCUK just got a hold of our new Deca Drive LED with the Loaded Kit and will be putting it through its paces over the coming weeks. Here is a little bit of what RCUK had to say upon opening the box.
“The most immediately obvious facet of the Deca Drive is more prosaic. It’s a very solid, CNC-machined aluminum unit… and tipping the scales at 160g unladen.”
“The power is converted to illumination via three LEDs, secured behind Leyzne’s Maximum Optimal Reflection lens, intended to produce a smoother and brighter beam by optimizing use of the generated light. This will be the area of greatest interest when the testing begins, of course.”
We are looking forward to the full review and will be sure to share it with you as soon as RCUK posts the report.
Cycling Weekly (UK) Magazine’s Lights Roundup reviewed a number of different lights from different companies, including a couple from here at Lezyne. They got their hands on the Power Drive XL, Macro Drive, Micro Drive Rear, and Femto LED Front and Rear.
On the Macro Drive, “Output is excellent and the cutaways on the hood give great side visibility for commuters.” While they also gave some praise to the Micro Rear LED, “The light is rich, with a super-bright ‘daytime mode’ that works well, even in low winter sun.”
Oh and those red numbers below the lights? Those are an out-of-10 score, so it looks as though they really liked our lights.
“Lezyne Power Drive XL – Don’t be put off by the quoted runtime – Lezyne’s ‘Infinite Light’ system includes a spare rechargeable cell so there’s always a back-up. Output is excellent and the cutaways on the hood give great side visibility for commuters.”
“Lezyne Macro Drive – Solidly made and taking up very little space on the bar, the Macro Drive offers two flashing modes for town users and up to 300 lumens for the odd out-of-town excursion. Paired with the Power Drive XL as a helmet light, it’s phenomenal.”
“Lezyne Micro Drive – Available in black or silver, the Micro Drive is yet another classy product from Lezyne. The light is rich, with a super-bright ‘daytime mode’ that works well, even in low winter sun. The built-in USB dongle means no lost leads.”
“Lezyne Femto F+R – Small in size but big in output, these single-LED lights offer two types of fitting: a multi-position silicone rubber strap to fit any size of seatpost or a simple clip to attach to a rucksack. Disposable battery powered but massive runtime makes up for it.”
