Year 9 Lite Drive is Test Winner in German RoadBike Magazine
In the latest RoadBike Magazine from Germany, the all-new Lite Drive high-pressure hand pump has already claimed a prestigious test shootout victory. With a nearly perfect score, the Lite Drive was deemed “Outstanding” and the writer says, “With its high pumping performance, very good handling and low weight the LITE DRIVE M secures the best result: test winner!”
Available now, our new pump is a constructed from machined aluminum, features our ABS Flex Hose and is capable of pumping up to 160psi (11 bar). Available in Small or Medium sizes and black or silver, the Lite Drive has incredible value and is an excellent tool for road cyclists.
British publication 220 Triathlon recently declared the SV-11 “Best on Test” in a group test against a bevy of other tool brands. With an 85 percent verdict rating, 220 Triathlon says,“Lezyne makes possibly the best-looking multi-tools on the market. The polished metal finish of the SV range gives them a feeling of real quality. As the name suggests, you get 11 tools on the SV-11: seven different hex wrenches, two torx tools, one flat-head screwdriver and a chain breaker.”
Not only did they appreciate the SV-11’s aesthetics and functionality, they enjoyed its slenderness and (lack of) weight, saying, “The chain breaker is a neat little design and works well enough for any vital repairs to be carried out on the fly. The SV-11 is compact and light too (just 100 grams) and folds up neatly to slide into a jersey pocket without snagging.”

Lezyne Wins Two Design and Innovation Awards from Enduro Magazine for 2015
Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine has noted two Lezyne products for this year’s Enduro Design and Innovations Awards! Our Port-A-Shop Tool Kit and CNC Travel Drive both received awards. 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 CNC Travel Drive is the ultimate travel floor pump with all the capabilities of a full-size floor pump in a compact size. All components are custom CNC machined aluminum, resulting in a durable and lightweight design. The ABS Flip-Thread Chuck works on both Presta and Schrader valves. The included Speed Chuck makes this pump compatible with disc wheels. The 1.5” gauge is compact and precise. The Lay-Flat design and included felt lined canvas bag protect the pump during transport and storage. An anodized high polish finish make this pump stylish and durable.
CNC Travel Floor Drive
“The Lezyne CNC Travel Floor Drive doesn’t just stand out from the competition thanks to its outstanding quality and classy design, but also through its practical format: bit enough to fill high volume tyres quickly and comfortably, but small enough to accompany every bike trip.”
“The Lezyne Port-A-Shop really lives up to its name! Thanks to the carefully chosen selection of tools, you’re equipped to fix any trail disaster. From tyre levers and a puncture repair set and numerous hex keys to a chain tool and bottle opener, everything that the mechanic needs is here.”
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.
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.
We are excited to learn that the UK’s BikeBiz (a UK cycling trade publication) has named LEZYNE as the best Parts and Accessories manufacturer for 2014! Eighteen cycle trade-judged awards were given out to retailers, distributors, brands, service providers and more on the night of Wednesday, September 24 at the NEC’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. This is a HUGE honor for us! Thank you BikeBiz and all of the United Kingdom for this award, as well as Upgrade Bikes, our hard-working UK distributor!

German Trekking Bike Magazine has given our Classic Floor Drive the “TIPP” button, honoring our floor-drive as one of their top-tested products.
From the magazine: “The Lezyne Classic Floor Drive features a solid foot, yet wonky on the backside. With its 30mm barrel it comes along with the thinnest in the field. You will need a lot of strokes but you pump very comfortably. Longest hose among the pumps tested. The wooden handle has a comfy touch to it and the overall manufacturing is good. With this Pump, the most valuable one test, Lezyne wins the test in the center field.”
