Gauge Drive HP and Road Drive Score Accolades in Bikes Etc issue 1
Bikes Etc published a mini pump round-up and featured two popular Lezyne hand pumps: The Road Drive (Small) and Gauge Drive HP! The Gauge Drive HP scored BEST IN TEST as well as an overall 8 out of 10, with ergonomics, construction, and ease of use being the judging criteria. Bikes Etc says of the Gauge Drive, “An excellent performer…It’s tough enough to withstand even the most vigorous efforts…The shiny finish looks great…The accurate inline gauge is a bonus.” The Road Drive (Small) received a 7 out of 10, with great comments such as “Reassuringly solid…The flexible hose reduces risk of valve damage, and the Air Bleed System (ABS) releases residual pressure, making it less likely to unscrew valve cores. It reaches a good pressure quickly.”
The Lezyne Gauge Drive HP is new this year, and is a compact hand pump made of custom CNC machined aluminum for precise and lightweight construction. The HP pump design easily inflates tires to riding pressure with fewer strokes. The overlapping handle and barrel are integrated into a compact design. It comes equipped with Lezyne’s ABS Pen Gauge, a precise and compact in-line pressure gauge compatible with Presta and Schrader valves. The Lezyne Road Drive is a high pressure hand pump made entirely of aluminum for precise and lightweight construction. The barrel, handle, piston, end caps and pump mount are all custom CNC machined. The HP design makes this a frame pump replacement, easily inflating tires to riding pressure with fewer strokes. It comes equipped with our ABS Speed Flex Hose, which is a Presta ONLY inflation system. One end of the hose is a threaded Presta valve connection with ABS, while the other side has Lezyne’s Slip Fit system for fast valve engagement.
