Macro Drive Receives Best on Test with Triathlon Magazine

“The design and finish of the Macro Drive oozes quality. Simple tubular shape very pleasing to the eye and touch. The silicon band and clasp bracket is easy to use and secure. At full whack it pumps out a very usable 300 lumens, combining a good powerful spot with a wide and even floods enough for high-speed training on unlit roads and has the bonus of side visibility.

On this power you’ll get 3hrs of burn ­ plenty for winter training. The large top-mounted rubber button doubles as a power indicator. You can also get a helmet mount to increase its versatility.

Verdict

A high-quality and top-performing light for a bargain price!”

“Lezyne brings its typical elegance, efficiency, and styling to this design.”

“This excellent pump is a joy to use. The Lezyne Alloy FD takes top honours for its balance of design, efficiency and performance.”

“It’s a straightforward, very well made design, with a superb wooden handle, a long hose and a very stable base – but it’s Lezyne’s Flip-Thread Chuck that we really like. The screw-on design provides a fantastic seal and can be used on valves where only small amounts of thread are showing. It’s flippable for Schrader valves plus has an extra screw-on head that pushes onto valves in the more usual way. For it’s balance of design, efficiency, and pumping performance it takes the top honours.”

“Lezyne really delivers with this classic pump. It has a superbly reassuring feel, aided by its comfortable varnished wooden handle, while the CNC-machined base and 15mm shaft make it very stable and the gauge is clear to read. Add in a long hose and great build quality and you’ve got a more than competent pump, but what really makes it is Lezyne’s excellent Flip-Thread Chuck. This does away with a locking lever, the reversible head screwing directly – and very securely – onto Presta valves for leak-free pumping every time.” www.upgradebikes.co.uk

The Alloy Floor Drive wins

The Sport Floor Drive in the test, although it didn’t win, surely made “top honours” as well, earning itself 5 starts and a very well-bolstered reputation.
