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.”
Online publication Road.cc is always on top of reviewing Lezyne products, and this time around they got their hands on one of our newly released Mini GPS computers to take for a spin! The 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 computer is an easy-to-use option that gives you basic ride information on your handlebar along with the ability to upload, store and analyse your rides on Lezyne’s GPS Root website.”
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.”

Pump it up with our new ABS2 chuck now featured on our line of award winning floor pumps.
Our longstanding Flip Tread Chuck has evolved into the quicker—and still airtight—ABS2 system. This new system features an aluminum sleeve that rapidly engages and disengages from Presta valve tubes. Furthermore, the ABS2 can still securely thread on to shrader valves without swapping parts or flipping chucks!
The ABS2 is made up of an extremely durable composite body, an aluminum engagement sleeve and affixed with an aluminum coupler. A resilient combination of brass and steel makes up the ABS2’s core providing a secure and long lasting connection to both Presta and Shrader valves.
Using our floor pumps has now become quicker and more efficient, backed by the renowned quality of Lezyne’s engineering and construction.

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!

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.”
The annual Eurobike tradeshow in Friedrichshafen, Germany, is just around the corner! We’ll be set up in Hall A1, Booth 303 displaying all of our latest goods.

Year 9 Lite Drive is Test Winner in German RoadBike Magazine
In the latest RoadBike Magazine from Germany, the all-new Lite Drive high-pressure hand pump has already claimed a prestigious test shootout victory. With a nearly perfect score, the Lite Drive was deemed “Outstanding” and the writer says, “With its high pumping performance, very good handling and low weight the LITE DRIVE M secures the best result: test winner!”
Available now, our new pump is a constructed from machined aluminum, features our ABS Flex Hose and is capable of pumping up to 160psi (11 bar). Available in Small or Medium sizes and black or silver, the Lite Drive has incredible value and is an excellent tool for road cyclists.
Enhanced and expanded, our Year 9 collection continues to lead the industry in bike lighting and visibility. Armed with the latest LED technology and advanced batteries, our mid- to top-end lights see a significant increase in lumen output and battery life. Furthermore, their design aesthetics have been fine-tuned and enhanced to complement these upgrades.
Continuing in Y9, our LEDs still feature many innovative technologies that have been developed in-house by our team of dedicated engineers—like MOR Lenses, Constant Lumens and sleek CNC-machined aluminum bodies. And we continue to test each model in an integrating sphere to verify and prove our stated lumen output, consistency and runtime. Whether ripping down a dark singletrack late at night, or spinning to the café for a midday espresso, our state-of-the-art lights provide superior performance, versatility and visibility for riders of all types.
