Interbike Outdoor Demo 2014 with Jenson USA

The first two days of Interbike 2014 were spent out in the desert at Outdoor Dirt Demo, where retailers got the chance to test out the latest in bicycle technology in the environment it was made for. We had a booth set up amongst the many others that participated, of course, featuring our new products for Year 8! Bicycle retailer Jenson USA came out to see what’s up, and stopped by our booth. Our own Michael Drabousky was on site to show them what’s new with our floor pumps, namely our Alloy Drive, CNC Floor Drive and Classic Drive which have been upgraded with new 3.5″ gauges! Check out the video below!

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.”

Taiwan Company News Reports on KTV Launch

Taiwan Company News Reports on KTV Launch

Taiwan Company News Reports on KTV Launch

The successful launch of the KTV went off with a bang in Taiwan, and the media was there to capture it, party and all. The Taiwan Company News reported on the big event, and although the entire thing is printed in Taiwanese, it can be viewed by either clicking the above graphic or below thumbnail. Lezyne’s Sam Chau provided a gist of it right here:

“So the ‘KTV’ name has already raised a lot of questions, so if we wanted to be provocative, it’s working. We also added a lot of interest by doing the KTV launch party. The media has been asking me why it’s named ‘KTV’, we can’t deny it has an innuendo attached to it but here’s what I’m trying to convey:

The KTV light was created to bring a ‘unique personality’ into our LED line, challenging the norm and conventionality of what’s currently in the market. When people think of the word KTV there are all sorts of thoughts and emotions that come up – and having a large operation in Taiwan, we fully understand the various insinuations of this name. There can be a lot of interpretations but in the end it should all conclusively be blissful and happy.

Going to a KTV is like going to a sanctuary – it can be a place to relax, a place to have fun, and a place to celebrate. Similarly, we believe that when one takes their bicycle for a night ride they experience the same emotions. When a consumer purchases this product for their night ride, we hope they can bring this positive energy with them – just be happy.”

Canadian Cyclist Reviews the Deca Drive

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.”

Jordi Bago Visits Bulgaria for some Epic Enduro Riding

Jordi Bago Visits Bulgaria for some Epic Enduro Riding

Lezyne sponsored rider Jordi Bago took quite the trip to Pamporovo in southern Bulgaria to explore and ride some of the great terrain for enduro riding there, with his new Saracen Ariel 15x bike. Velo Park Pamporovo was his destination, and it looks like it was nothing short of extraordinary.

“We rode with a new friend, one of the best enduro riders from Bulgaria, Dobrimir from Bike Venture. We checked our bikes and got ready to ride the Red line – Malina trail.

“We came up with the lift to the top of the mountain for take the first enduro trail here in Pamporovo with lot of roots and wet zones! There was some step rock gardens that tested our skills, after that is a really flowy part with turns on really nice wood berms with a good view. We cross a fire road and keep riding the trail to a flat part with many lines to get to the low part of the ski station. We get ready for the upcoming fast zone with many natural berms and some rocks that will take us down to some really fast jumps till we get down to lift area! We take the same lift up to go take some other trails in the red line with some little wall rides and jumps!”

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

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

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!
