NEW LEZYNE PRODUCTS RELEASED AT SEA OTTER 2018!

Lezyne enjoyed a very successful Sea Otter Classic this year thanks to record turnout resulting in a high number of booth visitors. According to event organizers Sea Otter set a new record with 74,000 attendees over four days and those numbers kept our booth packed during the event. Along with consumers and fans of the brand, a large number of top cycling journalists stopped by to get a peek (and express their approval) at the new Year 12 products we had on display. Below is just a small taste of what’s coming to your local dealer soon so keep an eye out for more new products to be released later in the year.

“Now in their 12th year of making innovative tools and accessories, Lezyne has a bigger catalog than ever. Originally, Lezyne had planned on just adding a few new products for year 12, but before they knew it, almost 20 new items had sprung forward. A lot of that is due to their ability to react quickly to market trends and develop new products at a faster rate with full R&D and development facilities in house at their San Luis Obispo U.S. headquarters. After developing the products in house, they’re then able to be produced quickly in Lezyne’s own state of the art factory in Taiwan, and on the market before you know it.”

“While there are a ton of new products as mentioned, we’ve picked some of the highlights here, like their new Storage Drive which includes five bits that are stored in the handle (4, 5, 6mm, and T25/T30). The floating handle allows it to be a T-handle or L-wrench, and the tool includes its own carrying strap to mount it on your seatpost, frame, etc. There is an integrated magnet to keep the bits in the tool, and the kit sells for $24.99.”

“The new Shop Floor Drive pump is a high quality floor pump that stores a selection of tools in the handles.”

“This was still a prototype, but the finished product will have room for a V5 multi tool, tire levers, and a patch kit inside the threaded handle bar ends.”

“For more clever tool stashing, the new Storage Flow Drive is a composite matrix bottle cage that also has room for a V16/SV16 multi tool, CO2 head, and two CO2 cartridges. The Cage will be available unloaded, or loaded with all the parts mentioned above for $59.99.”

“If you already have a favorite cage but still want additional storage, the Storage Adapter mounts underneath a bottle cage and has room to carry a CO2 head, two cartridges, and a V5 multi tool.”

“On the electronic side, there are a number of updates and new products along with something big coming soon. But to mount everything, Lezyne has a new Direct X-Lock System that will be available soon. Lezyne actually licensed the design from another company (which they’ve never done before), but Lezyne had to update it to withstand a heavier load since their lights can be heavier than an action camera or GoPro. That included new aluminum arms for increased strength. Available as a full system only, the arms are adjustable to fit most stems.” -Zach Overholt of BikeRumor

“The new Lezyne Tubeless Repair Kit comes in a machined alloy case that doubles as a plug driver and is small enough to keep in your saddle bag or jersey pocket. The kit comes with the plugs and tools needed for repairs. Price is $20, which includes an aluminum storage tube, combined reamer, insertion tool, and five plugs.”

“Also new is the 12-Bit T Drive Tool and Storage Drive. The T-Drive houses all the bits internally and a magnetized tip holds them in place while you wrench. Price is $25.” – Jordan Villella of MTBR

“Lezyne always launches a load of new stuff at the Sea Otter and 2018 was no different. Concentrating on its core products of pumps, tools and lights, there was plenty to see…”

“Chipps” of Singletrack Magazine

“Not everyone (ahem) can see those teeny tiny pump gauges, so Lezyne’s latest Floor Drive pump has an extra large dial for better visibility. It also has a hollow handle that stores a tool in one side and tyre levers in the other.”

 

“Chipps” of Singletrack Magazine

“Something that showed a clever bit of integration was the way that this light integrates into this Pivot Shuttle e-bike. The light takes its power from the bike’s battery, meaning that the head unit can be made reasonably small and light. Clever.”

“Lezyne is also integrating Presta tools into its tools – and there’s a chain-link.”
“There will be all sorts of other stuff coming out this year from Lezyne, so stay tuned.” -“Chipps” of Singletrack Magazine

“Lezyne’s Storage Drive tool features a hollow shaft in which the tool bits can be stored. Remove the black ends to break the tool down and store it in a neoprene sleeve.”

“For more organized storage, Lezyne also offers the T-drive. This is a good one for long-haul rides.”

“Lezyne’s Tubeless Kit packs into a machined tube for superior durability. A Classic Tubeless Kit is available minus the fancy tube. The Classic Kit runs $10 and the Tubeless Kit costs $20.” -Dan Cavallari of Velonews
