Caddy Sack Review by All About The Ride

All About The Ride, a cycling blog out of the UK, reviewed the medium sized version of our Caddy Sack and had great things to say about its simplicity and convenience! The Lezyne Caddy Sack is a simple, reusable sack that can be used to carry all necessities, even smartphones. It has been redesigned with PVC fabrics, welded seams and a rolled velcro closure making this new sack extremely water resistant. The wide opening makes it quick and easy to see and extract contents. It is available in two sizes to accommodate a wide range of accessories.

“Lets face it, the Lezyne Caddy Sack looks essentially like a posh wash bag or ‘man bag’ for cyclists but for all of its simplicity, it is actually a good little product. If you are heading out for your early Sunday morning ride and you have read our Cycle Survival Kit guide, you will probable find that your saddle bag is crammed with spear tubes, repair kits, Co2 inflation pump, etc. But you haven’t room for your phone, keys and wallet. A jersey pocket is fine but the changes are you have filled these with a gilet or rain jacket and your nutritional products for your ride. In steps the Lezyne Caddy Sack.”

Canadian Cyclist Reviews the Deca Drive

A positive account of the Deca as a commuting light

Canadian Cyclist Reviews the Deca Drive

The Canadian publication had some great things to say about our Deca Drive, touting its sufficient brightness for commuting on the road. The Lezyne Deca Drive is designed with a sleek CNC-sculpted aluminum body in a compact, self-contained configuration. It features Constant Lumens power management that drives three LEDs at a steady and bright 900 lm. Overdrive Race Mode makes it possible for quick switching between Overdrive and Economy, and its Infinite Light design allows for on-demand battery replacement. The Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level any time. It is recharged either with fast, high efficiency, 2 Amp recharging with a compatible wall adaptor, or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The Deca Drive’s Composite Matrix hard mounts secure the light to 31.8 mm and 25.4 mm handlebars. It is also available in the Fully Loaded package with aluminum handlebar mounts (31.8mm and 25.4mm), a spare battery pack, a Micro USB charging cable, and CM storage case.

“Out of the box, the Deca Drive oozes with typical Lezyne quality and attention to detail. The light is housed in a CNC’d aluminum shell and offers well thought out features like metal hinges and a sealed battery port. The battery port also doubles as a home for the USB charger connection. The light shroud has cooling fins machined into it which help keep temperatures down; and with three LEDs being powered to a max 800 lumen it can get pretty warm. Included in the box is a spare battery, two sizes of handlebar mounts (31.8mm and 25.4), and a micro USB charging cable.”

Classic Dirt Floor Drive Review by Enduro Mountainbike Magazine

We’ve been getting a lot of great reviews about our Digital Drive series lately, but our Classic Floor Drives are not to be forgotten…Enduro Mountainbike Magazine has a great review out for our Classic Dirt Floor Drive! The Lezyne Classic Dirt Floor Drive is a high volume floor pump optimized for use with mountain bike tires. Made with a steel barrel and piston, an aluminum base and an oversized 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. The barrel is painted for durability and stylish looks.

“The Lezyne Classic Dirt Floor Drive could be the pump you’re looking for to replace the air compressor you keep around just for inflating bike tires. The pump is made with high quality, replaceable components. That’s an important thing. Being able to replace parts, instead of an entire pump, is crucial.” Read the full review here!

Pushy’s Reviews the Steel Digital Drive

Convenience, speed and accuracy

Pushy’s Reviews the Steel Digital Drive

Australian retailer Pushy’s had some positive things to say about our popular Steel Digital Drive! The Lezyne Steel Digital Floor Drive is a high pressure digital floor pump that features a machined steel barrel and piston, a varnished wood handle, and an aluminum base. It is equipped with an extremely accurate Digital Gauge, ball/bladder adapters, and an ABS Flip-Thread Chuck streamlined with an extra long, nylon-reinforced, braided hose with aluminum connectors to easily reach both Presta and Schrader valves. The included Speed Chuck makes this pump compatible with disc wheels. The barrel is treated with a substantial matte paint job to achieve a finish that is both durable and stylish.

“We all know there’s those handy little digital gauges out there, but you need to pump your tires, and then check them. So why have two steps when you can have just one? Lezyne’s approach to design and manufacturing is flawless, and I think we can all safely say it’s also very attractive. This particular pump comes with an extremely accurate digital pressure gauge, and also a braided hose with aluminum connectors so you can safely change between your Presta and Schrader valves.” Watch the video above for the full review.

Steel Digital Drive Pump Review by Urban Velo

Steel Digital Drive Pump Review by Urban Velo

Urban Velo got their hands on one of our Steel Digital Drives back in March, and left a great review. The Lezyne Steel Digital Floor Drive is a high pressure digital floor pump that features a machined steel barrel and piston, a varnished wood handle, and an aluminum base. It is equipped with an extremely accurate Digital Gauge, ball/bladder adapters, and an ABS Flip-Thread Chuck streamlined with an extra long, nylon-reinforced, braided hose with aluminum connectors to easily reach both Presta and Schrader valves.

“A good floor pump is an essential equipment for any cyclist. Lezyne offers an array of pumps and they chose to send in their Steel Digital Drive for review. It’s a solid pump in the middle of their Digital range, of course named for the use of a digital pressure gauge.” Read more of Urban Velo’s review here!

Bike Rumor Tests the Alloy Hand Drive

Bike Rumor Tests the Alloy Hand Drive

Bike Rumor Tests the Alloy Hand Drive

Our friends at Bike Rumor got their hands on our ultimate high volume hand pump, the Alloy Hand Drive. With the rise of large, tubeless tires on the scene, it’s no wonder that they wanted to see the best that our high volume pumps have to offer. The Alloy Hand Drive is definitely ready to impress.

“The small pump proved to be invaluable. On our first run, our group experienced a broken derailleur hanger, and four flats. Which turned a quick lap into a painfully slow adventure.During each of those trail mandated breaks, the Lezyne Alloy Drive was called into active duty. While the high volume pump had a tendency to heat up, it did made impressively short work of inflating large volume tires.”
