Sponsored rider Jordi Bago stopped by the Lezyne headquarters in San Luis Obispo, California, and took the time to explore the great mountain biking trails we have out here including Montana De Oro, Cerro San Luis and West Cuesta Ridge. Jordi was equipped with his brand new Santa Cruz Nomad bicycle!
Translation from the Spanish article: “I finally got the Lezyne factory to meet the team and see the facilities, and fortunately, have a backyard with many paths. Lezyne’s boys showed me all the amazing trails that are in the area of San Luis Obispo.”

Lezyne Makes the Cut for RCUK 100 Best Road Cycling Products for 2014-15
The new annual UK-based print magazine and digital download mag RCUK (Road Cycling UK) has selected their 100 best and influential road bikes and products from 2014-15, and included Lezyne in the LED, tools, and pumps categories! The Macro Duo, Port-A-Shop Tool Kit and CNC Travel Drive all received accolades. The publication is from the guys at Factory Media and is similar to their DIRT100, but for road biking. The Road Cycling UK web site carries the name into print for the first time with this high quality and large format production.
Road.cc Reviews the Lezyne Control Drive CO2 Inflator
We’ve been getting a lot of great feedback for our new Control Drive CO2 inflator this year, and Road.cc didn’t miss an opportunity to add their own. “Lezyne’s new Control Drive CO2 Inflator makes it really easy to get any Presta or Schrader inner tube fully inflated. It provides easy control of the flow of gas and has a jacket to protect your hands from freezing to the canister during use.”
The Control Drive is a compact, 100% CNC machined aluminum CO2 inflator. The Control Drive twist operation allows for easy and precise inflation. The Control Drive head slips directly onto Presta and Schrader valves and puts the rider into complete control over how much CO2 they discharge at a time. It is compatible with threaded CO2 cartridges only and comes with an anti-freeze jacket to protect hands during inflation.
BikeRadar has released another great review for us! This time it’s for our Port-A-Shop Tool Kit. “Lezyne’s Port-A-Shop fits the tools for last-minute adjustments and fittings before your ride into a tough fabric folder, and it’s a fantastic kit.”
The Lezyne Port-A-Shop is a cycling specific tool kit that is small enough to take traveling, yet functional enough to use in the garage. The kit includes tools for basic maintenance and most repairs. The convenient carrying case, with labeled pockets, keeps tools organized and safe.
The Lezyne Alloy Dirt Floor Drive is a high volume floor pump optimized for use with mountain bike tires. Made with a CNC machined aluminum barrel and base, a steel piston and an oversized varnished wood handle. The barrel, piston, hose and connectors are oversized to deliver twice the air flow per stroke to quickly fill tires or seat tubeless tire systems. The ABS Flip-Thread Chuck and long rubber hose easily reach both Presta and Schrader valves on a stand. The Speed Chuck is included for fast press-on valve engagement. The 2.5” oversized gauge is very precise and easy to read. An anodized high polish finish makes this pump stylish and durable.
UK mag Outdoor Fitness featured a rundown of the top 5 cycle lights as well as top 4 rear lights. Our new 1,400 lumen Mega Drive made the first place cut with Best in Test, and our Zecto Auto is also included in the list of rear lights.
Mega Drive: “Pumping out a dazzling 1,400 lumens in overdrive mode (if only for 1 hour 15 mins) or a more than adequate 600 lumens for 21⁄2 hours, this is a beautifully built aluminium lamp with a clean, bright beam ideal for road or trail. It also packs some very useful features. The battery power indicator, for instance, helps you manage light use, while the rechargeable battery is replaceable so you can clip in a spare (£30) for all-night rides. It recharges in 6 hours from the mains, or 12 hours via USB.”
Zecto Auto: “Designed like a luxury sports watch, the three LEDs resembling the dials of a chronograph, this is dead easy to fit, feels robust, and flashes for up to 7 hours. There’s a good power indicator too.”

The Col Collective Releases Second Video in Series
Lezyne is proud to be a sponsor for the Col Collective by Mike Cotty. This 30-part video series will help educate and inspire budding and avid cyclists who aspire to ride some of the greatest mountain passes in the world, with expert advice and support.
The Col Collective has just launched their second video in the series, featuring the Passo dello Stelvio in northern Italy.
It’s always an honor when MTBR gives us such great reviews! This time around, they’ve honed in on our newly-ugraded Mega Drive, now at a super bright 1,400 lumens. With a CNC-sculpted aluminum body in a compact, self-contained configuration, the Mega Drive is the ultimate high performance LED light built for trail or road use. It features Constant Lumens power management that drives three LEDs. Overdrive Race Mode allows quick switching between Overdrive and Economy, and its Infinite Light design allows for on-demand battery replacement for a bright light that never quits. It is recharged either with fast, high eﬃciency, 2 Amp recharging with a compatible wall adaptor or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level any time. The Mega Drive’s CM hard mounts secure the light to 31.8 mm and 25.4 mm handlebars. It is also available as a Fully Loaded package with aluminum handlebar mounts (31.8mm and 25.4mm), a spare battery pack, a Micro USB charging cable, and CM storage case.
“What haven’t we said about the Lezyne Mega Drive? It’s an overbuilt, self-contained unit designed to withstand all heat and moisture conditions. As the LEDs advance each year and get brighter and hotter, this design is able to handle the load with ease.
“Where last year’s light had two LEDs, this year it has three. The result is a brighter light with a smoother beam pattern. It has great throw and a wide beam with very smooth transitions.”
Road.cc has great things to say about our new Power Lever XL, focused on its increased leverage over the other tire levers! The Lezyne Power Lever XL is made of fiber reinforced Composite Matrix for increased strength and durability. It is designed with a large handle for comfort, and an integrated spoke hook for versatility. The aggressive hook geometry provides ideal leverage when dealing with difficult tire beads. Sold as a pair and available in countertop POP boxes.
“With plenty of leverage and tough nylon construction, Lezyne’s Power Lever XL tyre levers are well worth adding to your toolbox, especially if you have a tight tyre and rim combination.”
