The Alloy Floor Drive wins “Best on Test” with Cycling Plus

“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.

Lezyne Great Divide Pack Review

Andy Johnston, three time National MTB Champion and coach reviews our Great Divide hydration pack and LOVES it. Exciting stuff.

Andy Johnston, three times National mtb Champion is not only a racer and the coach.

Andy incorporates camping into his mountain biking experience. Here is his review of the Lezyne Great Divide Pack:

Lezyne’s Great Divide pack is their largest pack offering.  A very generous 24 liter cargo capacity and a 3 liter drinking bladder makes this suitable for long bike rides and camping trips.  With 6 external pockets, including one big basement pocket, and numerous internal storages solutions, the Great Divide has plenty of easily assessable storage areas.

When you are doing your big ride there is only one reason you wear a backpack; to carry your stuff, and you need to get to that stuff quickly and easily. The Great Divide gives you that with easy to access storage compartments.

The pack is very easy to wear and comfortable on the shoulders. A little more narrow than a typical daypack helps keep the load balanced when in a leaned over riding position.  Additional adjustment and compression straps help secure the load, and double as mounting straps for external items – even a full-face helmet.

To keep the pack off your back an insertable, bendable support also allows air to flow and keep you dry, and it also provides an ideal storage next for large, flat maps.

Overall the pack is a quality piece of gear with many well thought-out touches you will appreciate out in the woods or wherever your adventurers take you.

Externally and internally, this pack has lots of storage.

Water resistant, soft material scratch free zipper pocket for your electronics, such as music devices, with an earphone cable port.  This is the go-to pocket for easy access zipper storage.

Two mesh pockets on the hip strap.  These can be accessed while wearing the pack, so are perfect for items you might use a lot.

Large side pockets on either side of the pack are great for small to medium size items.

Two main compartments: a cavernous main and secondary one features tons of pocket space for your little items, it is even labeled with pictures of the things that go in the pocket so you don’t have to dig to see what’s in there.

For odds and ends there is the outer pocket on the back of it all.  It is made of a stretchy fabric that allows you to cram and stuff items in a hurry yet still hold them safe.

A ventilated storage compartment under the pack for wet, smelly or dirty items to protect your other stuff.  It also works great for clean items.

The hydration bladder compartment is lined with reflective material called Temp Shield to keep temps constant.   The bladder closes using a zip-lock top which opens wide enough to get your hand in for easy cleaning.

The Great Divide pack is big enough to be used for camping yet small enough to be used for a day ride or hike.

Bottom line:
WOW!  This is my favorite pack, although not as roomy as my 30 liter hiking pack, or as minimalist as my cycling water pack, it is the nicest, and has the best features.  This is an all day/ multi-day pack for the outdoors person that needs to carry a lot of gear, but does not want a bulky cumbersome pack.
