Hannes Klausner Exploring the Unknown

Lezyne ambassador Hannes Klausner takes to the island of Sao Vicente to take on the trails that no mountain bike has conquered before. Traveling 640 Km off of the coast of Africa, Sao Vicente offered some fresh trails just waiting to be tackled.

“For me the idea of ​​exploring the unknown was to come to this place, no expectations at all and just see what we have. At the end we were the first to explore the mountains in this area with a bike and although it was very difficult due to the windy conditions was a great experience for new places to ride, new and friendly people with a totally different way of living.” – Hannes Klausner

Bike Rumor Tests the Alloy Hand Drive

Our friends at Bike Rumor got their hands on our ultimate high volume hand pump, the Alloy Hand Drive. With the rise of large, tubeless tires on the scene, it’s no wonder that they wanted to see the best that our high volume pumps have to offer. The Alloy Hand Drive is definitely ready to impress.

“The small pump proved to be invaluable. On our first run, our group experienced a broken derailleur hanger, and four flats. Which turned a quick lap into a painfully slow adventure.During each of those trail mandated breaks, the Lezyne Alloy Drive was called into active duty. While the high volume pump had a tendency to heat up, it did made impressively short work of inflating large volume tires.”

Enduro MTB Visits Lezynes California Headquarters

Our friends at Enduro Mountainbike Magazine came to visit our sunny, California headquarters earlier this year! They got a first hand look at our clean, hardworking environment and were shown the best time possible. Enduro got a whole new look at how Lezyne works by seeing our marketing, sales, and R&D working in house.

“Lezyne was started on principles of creating good looking, sharp, and classy products that perform exceedingly well. Lezyne does all of it’s design and testing in house. Sure, they also have phenomenal riding right out the door in gorgeous San Luis Obispo. They also sponsor top name riders like Cedric Gracia, Angie Hohenwarter, and Danny MacAskill.”

We hope that the guys at Enduro can come back for another visit! To read the full article and to see the rest of the pictures taken in our California headquarters, click here.

“For quick repairs, the tool has performed everything demanded, and looks no worse for the wear after months of living at the bottom of my hydration pack. Each of the bits appears to be very high quality and we can’t complain about the weight or ergonomics. If you’re in the market for a multitool that packs in lots of features, and will last for years, the Lezyne SV-11 is well worth a look.”

Here’s a great article from our friends at bikerumor.com. Do you want to know how we make such beautifully designed and fine engineered bicycle products? Take a look!

“Since their beginnings in 2007, Lezyne has always been about design. Even the name Lezyne is supposed to bring the word design to mind (which is why they rhyme, it’s not pronounced le-zeen). Lezyne is the brain child of Micki Kozuschek, a former professional triathlete, who started on the business side of the bike industry with Maxcycles. From there, Micki moved to the US and founded a company you have have heard of, called Truvativ which as we know, was later sold to SRAM in 2004. Three years later, Micki was back with a new project, Lezyne – Engineered Design.” – Read the full article to see how we do things in our modern Taiwan factory!

Robonza Reviews the Alloy Drive Hand Pump

Robonza Reviews the Alloy Drive Hand Pump

The riders of Robonza took to the mountain trails with our Lezyne Alloy Drive hand pump. It seems safe to say that they highly enjoyed using our premium high volume hand pump.

“Do you not have a pump or need a new pump? You totally do and you should buy the Lezyne Alloy Drive Pump. It is the best mini pump ever. We’ve all been there, you get a flat and 400 pumps latter you snap off the presta valve. The Lezyne Alloy Drive has a removable tube similar to a floor pump that not only prevents you from breaking off presta valves but also alloys you to get a secure connection on shorter valve stems.”

“I previously had a favorite pump, but on a group ride the other night there were 3 flats and one 38mm tube that would not let my mini pump fit on. I tried a valve extender, but that failed. My buddy whipped this out of his bag and the tube filled in like 30 seconds. AMAZING!”
