Lezyne Mini GPS in Decline Magazine

We’ve gotten a lot of great buzz about our new GPS line, and our small but powerful Mini GPS is getting a lot of its own. Decline Magazine published a full page, in-depth review on this tiny cycling computer in their November/December 2015 issue, highlighting its ease of use, connectivity and bar mount. Our Mini GPS is compact, powerful and ideal computer for the cycling minimalist. Simply turn it on, press start and go for a ride. Essential ride data is presented on a sharp, easy to read, semi-customizable display and logged for later analysis. The display also features auto-scrolling ride info, custom lap presets and an optional auto start/stop function. An optimized GPS recording system stores up to 100 hours of data and can be easily accessed via flash drive technology. Rides are saved as .fit files for cross-compatibility with third-party interfaces like Strava™ and TrainingPeaks®. Housed in a stylish aluminum bezel, the computer features a simple three-button operation and is micro USB rechargeable for up to 10 hours of runtime.

“At just $139.99 the Mini GPS keeps all the essential riding data right at your fingertips for a minimal investment in a sturdy aluminum and plastic package. It lets you save and upload your rides on any fitness tracker website and provides good motivation to pick up the pace and ride harder, even if you’re rolling solo. Of course, you could get all this data and more from your smart phone but I’m not too keen on strapping a $600 piece of glass to my handlebars. I’m excited I’ve found this new way to accumulate ride data, as keeping track of my rides will help me stick to a schedule and stay in better shape.”

Peloton Magazine, “the fastest-growing cycling title in the US,” had a little something to say about our new Macro Drive 600XL in a feature from the November 2015 issue.

“It’s incredible how bright a true 600 lumens actually is. Turn on the new Lezyne Macro Drive 600XL and it puts many claimed 600-lumen lights to shame.”

BikeRadar Lists Super GPS in 11spd Best New Gear

We’ve gotten a lot of great reviews from BikeRadar in the past, but of course, this year we’ve got our eyes on the new Lezyne GPS line. The popular online cycling publication caught wind of our brand new product category, and featured our Super GPS in the latest, pre-Fall edition of 11spd, their weekly collection of the hottest new cycling gear to grace their offices in Colorado.

BikeRadar had great things to say about the Super GPS, stating that “In initial testing, we found the Lezyne Super GPS to stay connected to our iPhone more reliably than a Garmin Edge.”

“While the 75g Super GPS does not provide navigation — the GPS functionality here is used for recording where you ride, plus metrics like speed and distance — it does work with heart rate straps, power meters and mobile phones thanks to ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity.”

All About the Ride Reviews the Lezyne Hecto Drive 300XL

We here at Lezyne are definitely excited about our new LED line for Year 9, and shortly after release, UK-based online publication All About The Ride has gotten their hands on our new Hecto Drive 300XL and left a great, in-depth review!

Our Hecto Drive 300XL is a multi-purpose performance LED cycling light that is compact, durable and constructed with heat-dissipating CNC machined aluminum. Its ultra high-output LED delivers up to 300 lumens, and the Mode Memory function returns to the selected mode after turning off. The Hecto Drive 300XL has seven combined lumen and flash modes, an enhanced MOR (Maximum Optical Reflection) lens with built-in side visibility, an integrated cable-free recharging USB stick and an advanced Li-Poly battery for superior run time.

“US cycling accessory giant Lezyne have come up bigger and brighter for their Y9 (Year 9) range of lights. Whilst they have added some new models to the range, unlike many manufacturers Lezyne have not changed the names of their flagship lights. Instead the Californian based company has backed the new performance of the range by adding the lumen output and XL or XXL to the name of its most popular products. We took the commuter-favourite Lezyne Hecto Drive 300XL (its new name) front light out after dark.”

Mountainbike.nl Reviews the Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HVG

The Dutch online publication Mountainbike.nl had some positive words for our popular hand pump with floor pump efficiency, the Micro Floor Drive HVG. The article is of course, all written in Dutch, but in summary, it explains all pump features and heralds the ABS Flip-Thread Chuck and overall beautiful looks of the pump. The foot stand for stability and long hose is seen as a great convenience, as well as the fact that this popular little pump is lightweight and easy to use. Mountainbike.nl also speaks of the familiar inconvenience of encountering a flat or a damaged tube, and needing a quick fix. Looks like our Micro Floor Drive HVG fits the bill!

Road.cc Reviews the New Lezyne Strip Drives

We over here at Lezyne are pretty excited about our new Strip Drive line, which includes a front, rear and Pro (rear) version. Road.cc has always been on a roll with reviewing our new product lines every year, and they had nothing but good things to say about the new Strip Drives.

“Lezyne has introduced a new range of Strip Drive front and rear lights that can fit any shape of handlebar or seatpost, including aero options.

“There are two rear lights in the Strip Drive range along with a front light, each containing five LEDs.

“The higher level rear light is the Strip Drive Pro. It’s co-moulded meaning that the lens and the body are an integrated whole so that water can’t get inside. The control button is shielded away underneath the rubber outer so that rain can’t get in there either.”

Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HV wins Fat-Bike.com Trail Pump Shootout

Online publication Fat-Bike.com, “Born of a love for FatBikes and all things FAT”, pitted our very own Micro Floor Drive HV against two other contenders in the market, The SKS Spaero Double Action and the Topeak Mountain Morph, for their first ever shootout. The shootout judges each pump on weight, ergonomics and the number of cycles it took to reach 7 PSI, and is complete with personal accounts and plenty of charts to map out the results.

“At the end of the test, I put the Lezyne Micro Floor HV in the frame pack on my fat-bike and retired my Mountain Morph to my Krampus frame bag. That’s a pretty telling summary of this trail pump shoot-out. We declare the Lezyne the winner, with the Topeak coming in a close second and the Spaero a somewhat distant third.”

There’s obviously been a lot of buzz about our new GPS line, and Mike Cushionbury of Dirt Rag Mag is the latest to speak up about this exciting new release! Mike gives a rundown of the product line, and got his hands on a GPS Mini, which he took out for a spin on San Luis Obispo’s Madonna Mountain and returned with anticipation for its official release.

“Lezyne has made a bold move. The company is well known for creating beautiful, machined aluminum pumps and tire levers. It’s since grown exponentially to include bottle cages, tools and lights. Now, in its ninth year of existence the brand is unabashedly going head to head with GPS leader Garmin…Overall, Lezyne has created a GPS with a lot of promise, and promises. I like the simplicity, the size and the interaction it’s claiming. It’s a GPS I’m excited about.”

Bike Magazine Reviews the Lezyne Mini GPS

We here at Lezyne are obviously, truly excited about the release of our GPS line, which will be shipped out very soon! Bike Magazine has a nice review on the GPS Mini, the smallest of the three devices that will be available. The elegant Mini GPS is compact, powerful and ideal for the cycling minimalist. Simply turn it on, press start and go for a ride. Essential ride data is presented on a sharp, easy to read, semi-customizable display and logged for later analysis. The display also features auto-scrolling ride info, custom lap presets and an optional auto start/stop function. An optimized GPS recording system stores up to 100 hours of data and can be easily accessed via flash drive technology. Rides are saved as .fit files for cross-compatibility with third-party interfaces like Strava™ and TrainingPeaks®. Housed in a stylish aluminum bezel, the computer features a simple three-button operation and is micro USB rechargeable for up to 10 hours of runtime.

“The Lezyne Mini GPS is the smallest stand-alone GPS unit we’ve seen, but the California-based brand has big goals. Ever since GPS units started making their way onto bicycles, there’s been one clear market leader: Garmin. There are some other nice units out there, but Garmin is slaying it with a whopping seven cycling-specific computers starting at just $130. Lezyne recently announced the release of three new computers in an effort to grab a piece of the global positioning pie, starting with the Mini GPS.”
