Road.cc Reviews the Lezyne Alloy Floor Drive
Road.cc is on to us again, with a review on our newly revamped Alloy Floor Drive. The Lezyne Alloy Floor Drive is a high pressure floor pump with a CNC machined aluminum barrel and base, a steel piston, and an aluminum and varnished wood handle. The ABS Flip-Thread Chuck and long rubber hose easily reach both Presta and Schrader valves on a stand. The included Speed Chuck makes this pump compatible with disc wheels. The 3.5″ oversized gauge is precise and easy to read. An anodized high-polish finish makes this pump stylish and durable.
“A good track pump is a worthy investment especially if you run tyres with high pressures. Thanks to its clever Flip-Thread chuck the Lezyne Alloy Floor Drive works with every type of valve and valve extender we’ve tried and without any of that fuss of wiggling the connector or refitting to get it started. Quite frankly it’s brilliant.”

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!

The Alloy Floor Drive wins “Best on Test” with Cycling Plus
“Lezyne brings its typical elegance, efficiency, and styling to this design.”
“This excellent pump is a joy to use. The Lezyne Alloy FD takes top honours for its balance of design, efficiency and performance.”
“It’s a straightforward, very well made design, with a superb wooden handle, a long hose and a very stable base – but it’s Lezyne’s Flip-Thread Chuck that we really like. The screw-on design provides a fantastic seal and can be used on valves where only small amounts of thread are showing. It’s flippable for Schrader valves plus has an extra screw-on head that pushes onto valves in the more usual way. For it’s balance of design, efficiency, and pumping performance it takes the top honours.”
“Lezyne really delivers with this classic pump. It has a superbly reassuring feel, aided by its comfortable varnished wooden handle, while the CNC-machined base and 15mm shaft make it very stable and the gauge is clear to read. Add in a long hose and great build quality and you’ve got a more than competent pump, but what really makes it is Lezyne’s excellent Flip-Thread Chuck. This does away with a locking lever, the reversible head screwing directly – and very securely – onto Presta valves for leak-free pumping every time.” www.upgradebikes.co.uk
The Sport Floor Drive in the test, although it didn’t win, surely made “top honours” as well, earning itself 5 starts and a very well-bolstered reputation.
