Control Drive

The Lezyne Control Drive was the top-rated CO2 inflator in a recent comparison from BikeRadar. “With a minimalist CNC’ed aluminium head, the Control Drive feels high quality. Despite its small size, attention to detail is high too. A rubber seal engages with the cartridge threads as soon as you begin loading the inflator, which means little gas is lost before the valve is opened. The head slips easily over both Schrader and Presta valves, and the control knob is knurled for grip and simple to operate.”

Super GPS – 206 Miles!

On July 31st, BikeRumor posted a bike check with Alison Tetrick featuring her Dirty Kanza-winning race rig and her Super GPS.
“The first thing that popped into Alison’s mind when she was talking about her race setup was actually not her bike but a Lezyne computer. The Dirty Kanza 200 is essentially self-supported & self-directed on lonely roads, mostly due to the isolated location. It gets no course markings, so requires a GPS in it for the long haul. That was one of the most intimidating elements of the race for the roadie, used to “playing ‘follow-the-leader’ in road racing, and having a full caravan in front and behind (her). Alison raced with a Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS to give her turn-by-turn navigation. She was impressed that even after doing almost 12 hours of turn-by-turn directions for 206 miles, it still had over 50% battery life remaining. ‘I could have gone another 206 miles if I wanted.'”

Cycling Weekly

The Super GPS made its way into this month’s “Tech of the Month” over at Cycling weekly.
“This little number is Lezyne’s top end GPS unit, and it squarely takes aim at the Garmin Edge 520.
It’s capable of keeping track of all your data and can push your performance with a variety of tests hooked up by ANT+ and Bluetooth sensors.
It can also do turn-by-turn navigation and isn’t touchscreen, which, if you’ve struggled with the Garmin Edge 820 you’ll be pleased to hear.”

Super GPS

TopTenReviews.com listed the Super GPS as their “Excellence Award Winner” in their collection of the top 10 cycling GPS computers of 2017, scoring a fantastic 9.58/10.

“The Lezyne Super GPS is a powerhouse for those that run long training sessions, and this bike computer is very reasonably priced…One of the best parts of the Super GPS is its outstanding battery life, which is rated for 24 hours. While most other cycling computers last just 12 to 15 hours with standard usage, having a longer-lasting battery is great for those who are marathon trainers.”

Bicycle Times Weekly featured both the Macro Drive 800XL (Replaced by the Macro Drive 1100XL) and Zecto Auto as part of their list of high-quality bike lights that won’t break the bank.
“Some of the most lumens in the sleekest packages are delivered by the San Luis Obispo, California-based Lezyne. Their Macro Drive 800XL light is the heaviest, but stoutest of the list for good reason. The CNC machined aluminum parts and body create a durable construction for 800 lumens of power from this high performance front cycling light. At max power in the overdrive mode, the ultrahigh LED lights will blast for 1 hour and 40 minutes while in the conservative femto mode the light lasts for a reported 63 hours. A robust silicone strap secures the Macro Drive 800XL easily in place over many types of handlebars. Choose from silver or black, both so stylish they might become your favorite bike accessory for $70.”
