Bike Rumor Tests the Alloy Hand Drive
Our friends at Bike Rumor got their hands on our ultimate high volume hand pump, the Alloy Hand Drive. With the rise of large, tubeless tires on the scene, it’s no wonder that they wanted to see the best that our high volume pumps have to offer. The Alloy Hand Drive is definitely ready to impress.
“The small pump proved to be invaluable. On our first run, our group experienced a broken derailleur hanger, and four flats. Which turned a quick lap into a painfully slow adventure.During each of those trail mandated breaks, the Lezyne Alloy Drive was called into active duty. While the high volume pump had a tendency to heat up, it did made impressively short work of inflating large volume tires.”

Robonza Reviews the Alloy Drive Hand Pump
The riders of Robonza took to the mountain trails with our Lezyne Alloy Drive hand pump. It seems safe to say that they highly enjoyed using our premium high volume hand pump.
“Do you not have a pump or need a new pump? You totally do and you should buy the Lezyne Alloy Drive Pump. It is the best mini pump ever. We’ve all been there, you get a flat and 400 pumps latter you snap off the presta valve. The Lezyne Alloy Drive has a removable tube similar to a floor pump that not only prevents you from breaking off presta valves but also alloys you to get a secure connection on shorter valve stems.”
“I previously had a favorite pump, but on a group ride the other night there were 3 flats and one 38mm tube that would not let my mini pump fit on. I tried a valve extender, but that failed. My buddy whipped this out of his bag and the tube filled in like 30 seconds. AMAZING!”

A super great review of our Alloy Drive after it’s been beat for quite some time.
“The Lezyne is a joy to use with a nice fluid action and a thick handle to get a good grip. Some will be quick to mention that the Brompton already comes with a frame pump so why should you need another? Simply put, the included Brompton pump works best as an emergency pump in our opinion. It’s a small frame-style pump which will get the job done, but you do have to pay special attention to keep it from wrenching off a valve stem.
We’ve used the Lezyne Alloy Drive pump on our last two tours with the Brompton. During that time its been used heavily and has managed to survive the elements since we keep it in an outside pocket.”
Recommendation: Highly Recommend
-flex hose prevents snapping of valves
-well made, nice pump action
-a little spendier than other pumps
-screwing of hose adds a little time to process
