Lezyne Looking to Expand Distribution Following Eurobike

Lezyne Looking to Expand Distribution Following Eurobike

San Luis Obispo, CA – With the 2012 Eurobike tradeshow only a week away, Lezyne is finalizing preparations for the debute of the Year 6 (2013) product line, which includes the previously announced all-new LED Light line. Lezyne is also looking to expand its market reach at the show. “Lezyne products are sold worldwide in every major market, but there are still markets in which we do not have a presence,” says Ulrike Schlifske, Lezyne’s Global Sales Coordinator. “At Eurobike and Interbike, we hope to find new partners in these untouched markets.”

For those vendors interested in joining Lezyne’s international distribution team, please contact Mrs. Schlifske at to arrange an appointment at Eurobike.

Lezyne will be at Eurobike booth B3-107.

Lezyne Launches 2013 Line and Updated Website

San Luis Obispo, CA – With the Eurobike trade show fast approaching, Lezyne has launched its 2013 line along with an updated website. In stark contrast to the Year 5 website, our Year 6 site is built to focus on the beauty and “engineered design” of Lezyne products. The site has also been upgraded with other features to improve navigation, loading speeds, and multi-language capabilities. As for the 2013 line, it includes a completely redesigned and expanded LED light line, refined CO2 inflators, new bottle cages, hand pumps, and small bags/organizers.

The Year 6 LED Line

Our 2012 LED line represented the company’s inaugural year as a light manufacturer with the introduction of the extremely successful Mini Drive, Power Drive, and Super Drive LED lights. For 2013, we are using the knowledge acquired in 2012 and applying it to build a completely new LED line from the ground up. We have introduced four new models to suit a variety of riding applications.

The Mini Drive, Power Drive, and Super Drive LED lights became the XL line with an increase in lumen output for each model (200lm, 400lm, and 500lm respectively), new oversized aluminum and CNC machined bodies run cooler, reduce weight, and accommodate constant current electronics. The Intelligent Power Indicator has red and green LEDs built into the power button that allow the user to check power levels during use and recharging. The optics have been upgraded to one-piece MOR lenses which increases light transmission by 10%. The XL lights are USB rechargeable and feature Infinite Light. For more details about the XL line, go to our WEBSITE.

Our new commute oriented lights come in the form of the Macro Drive (front) and Micro Drive (front/rear) LED lights. These lights have CNC machined aluminum bodies, Composite Matrix end caps, and USB rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries (non-replaceable). The Macro Drive recharges via micro USB cable and the Micro Drive uses an integrated USB stick. The lights attach to the bike via snap-fit Composite Matrix mounts and multi-position rubber straps for easy installation and removal. The Macro Drive produces 300 lumens for 3hrs on Blast mode. The Micro Drive Front is compact, yet manages to produce 150 lumens for 2hrs on Blast mode while the Micro Drive Rear is a 30-lumen taillight designed with rider safety in mind. It is equipped with five modes: 2 solid, 3 flash, 1 ultra-bright daytime flash. If there is a question regarding the durability of these new lights, be sure to check out some of our (fun) product testing as shown in this video

More information about the Micro and Macro LED lights can be found HERE.

Our Femto Drive LED was actually the first of our 2013 line to be debuted back in April at the Sea Otter Classic. These super compact street lights (front 15lm / rear 7lm) feature a CNC machined aluminum body and Composite Matrix back plate that attach to the bike with a multi-position rubber strap. Extensive testing and complex lens seals have resulted in a safety light that is extremely water resistant. More information on the Femto Drive lights can be found HERE

All of the above LED lights will be available to buy from your local retailer by Fall of 2012.

Lezyne Micro Caddy Review by

Lezyne Micro Caddy Review by

“Not everyone needs to take several rounds of sandwiches, a phone, a camera, a waterproof, a spare gear cable, three tubes, patches, a lucky Gonk and all the other saddlebag detritus that some deem necessary on a ride all stuffed into a saddlepack that would trouble a budget airlines baggage allowance. Others like to travel fast and light,…the Lezyne Micro Caddy (Small) is for those people.”

“With a capacity of a meagre 0.5L its cargo potential is plainly going to be fairly minimal. The main compartment is flanked by internal sleeves to hide delicate or pointy things away from the scrummage of the hold, the left-hand one ambitiously marked out by Lezyne for an inner-tube while the right-hand side is split into two; each about the right size to slip a slim tyre lever into. Storage space is extended with an outer pocket that’s graphiced up to suggest you fit your micro-tool in there, although it will have to be quite a mini micro tool to squeeze in.”

“The Micro Caddy is constructed from weatherproof materials and has a waterproof zip holding everything in which keeps the contents from all but the world of rain and wheel spray. After particularly moist rides it’s prudent to take everything out and give it a wipe down though to avoid rusting of anything that can rust, it’s no big issue as you’d probably need to give the Caddy a good clean as well anyway after such a ride, especially if you’ve bought the white one, to match your shoes. Reflective piping adds a tenuous level of safety.”

“The twin neoprene arms wrap around the saddle rails and Velcro onto the Lezyne’s body to provide a secure fastening without the need for a seatpost strap or any extra anti-eject security round the saddle rails, not even your favourite old toe-strap. This one has logged an impressive tally of miles and it hasn’t budged at all, and best of all as those neoprene arms can be pulled quite tight it hasn’t rattled in that Chinese water-torture way that goes mostly unnoticed by the rider but makes all your cycle companions want to kill you inefficiently with whatever tool is making the annoying noise.”

Lezyne Micro Caddy Review by

“Obviously whether you can get all your preferred ride-saving kit into the small Micro Caddy depends on how much you think you need, it could be a struggle for some. Lezyne say the bag can hold a small multi-tool, a spare road tube and some tyre levers. With a bit of effort you can manage to stuff more in; currently this test one is holding a turquoise puncture repair box with patches, glue and some spare links hidden inside it, a pair of chunky tyre levers, a not so mini mini-tool with a chain-breaker on, a spoke-key and since that ride where the friend with the deep-section rims didn’t bring any valve extenders, one of them. And despite it bulging quite tumescently it hasn’t thrown itself off or spilled its load into the verge that’s quite enough of that – ed).


For the lightweight rider that doesn’t feel the need to take their entire tool-chest with them on a ride than this is an excellent choice. Small enough to be forgotten about and not cause too much angst for the delicate lines of your elegant steed yet large enough, just, to fit the bare essentials in. And it doesn’t rattle.”
