Three Lezyne Products win Design & Innovation Awards

Three Lezyne Products win Design & Innovation Awards

It’s no coincidence that Lezyne rhymes with design. Every accessory, part, gadget and device that we produce is held to a certain standard of elegance and style. In an industry filled with copycats and complacency, we continually strive to not just standout, but to also be a trend leader. This approach is a huge part of what defines Lezyne and it can be seen throughout our entire catalog of products.

However, aesthetics is just one aspect of what makes a Lezyne product exceptional. It’s important, to say the least, but what we really crave is innovation. No matter how visually stimulating we make something, it still has to maintain a level of superior functionality.

These are the two elements that generate the lifeblood of Lezyne: Innovation and Design. We call this Engineered Design.

Engineered Design is the foundation of every Lezyne product. It represents our development strategies, our identity and our philosophies. Everything we create is held to this standard and is the result of a powerful in-house team of engineers, designers and forward-thinking project leaders. Lezyne is Engineered Design.

Fortunately, this commitment to product development and originality does not go unnoticed. We’re continually honored with glowing reviews, accolades and product shootout victories. Seeing our hard work validated by esteemed publications around the world is truly satisfying.

Our latest achievement was bestowed upon not one—nor two—but three Lezyne products: The Design & Innovation Award 2016. This exclusive award came from deep within the Dolomites and was spearheaded by a collection of 40 prominent industry individuals from 10 different countries. For two weeks this conglomeration of cycling elites tested, debated and contemplated hundreds of submissions from all corners of the bicycle world. And when it was all said and done three of our latest accessories came away with the award: Our Mini GPS cycling computer, Strip Drive taillight and Digital Over Drive floor pump.

Here are a few nice things they had to say about our winners:

Three Lezyne Products win Design & Innovation Awards - Digital Over Drive

Digital Over Drive:
“Lezyne have created a workshop legend.”

“The pump has enough volume to handle the latest plus and fat tires, and its powerful delivery seats tubeless tyres effectively.”

“The highlight is the ABS2 connector chuck, which makes connection to the valve a reliable and trouble-free process”

Three Lezyne Products win Design & Innovation Awards - Mini GPS

Mini GPS
“Its ultra-compact dimensions and super light weight mean you have the freedom to mount the Mini GPS anywhere you want.”

Outdoor Gear Lab Reviews the Lezyne Super GPS

Outdoor Gear Lab is the next to give our Super GPS some rave reviews! With side-by-side competitor comparisons and a hands-on review including setup, interface and use, features, best applications and value (it is the winner of their Best Buy Award, after all), our popular new cycling computer seems to be quite the hit with those behind the Cheyenne, Wyoming gear guide!

“The Lezyne Super GPS is a high end cycling computer with both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart connectivity. Lots of function at a low price has vaulted it into position as the winner of our Best Buy Award. No color touch screens here, just pure data and function. The screen and ride display layout are reminiscent of the Garmin Edge 500, but the overall aesthetic of the device is much different. The Lezyne Super GPS does not have map displays of any kind, but it does have impressive sensor compatibility and uses GPS and GLONASS satellites like the Garmin Edge 510 and Edge 520. If you are looking for a simple computer that can track data from almost any sensor on the market, then this is it.”
